Five questions CIOs have to answer to their CEOs, CIOs on cloud security and Opera Mini is out

1) CIO magazine's Thomas Wailgum has five important questions that CEOs will ask their CIOs.

"What is your golf handicap?" is not part of the list.

2) "A lot of people choose a cloud provider and wash their hands of it, expecting that everything will be taken care of. In my opinion, it's what you put into it. The cloud will be as secure as how you are managing it," said Angelo Valletta, senior vice president and CIO, Sun National, in Search CIOs article on executives in US who are developing their own cloud security best practices.

3) According to Web browser maker Opera Software, its Opera Mini application for iPhone and iPod Touch has been approved and will appear in various markets for download.

According to the release, the software enables fast mobile Web browsing by compressing data by up to 90 per cent before sending content to the device, resulting in significantly improved page loading. Surfing the Web will also help users save money because of its data compression capabilities. This will hold especially true while the user is incurring roaming charges.

Opera Mini is available for download in the Singapore market.
