All Things Tech: December 2015 Blogger’s Digest


It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new year... but we're revisiting last month one more time.

Will 2016 be the year associations take cybercrime seriously? Ransomeware is real, as are other threats to your association's—and your member's—data. Take heed by getting up to speed with CTO Chris Ecker's Don't let cybercriminals hold your association's data hostage (December 4, 2015). Plus, find sample security policies from our Tech15 session Organizational Data Security – Beyond the Basics on the Tech15 Handouts page.

We readily admit that we're all sick of talking about silos—but they still exist, so... why not talk about teaming up instead? Kathleen McQuilkin, PMP, explains Why cross-functional teams are essential to technology success (December 8, 2015) and even provides some examples—such as teams for technology planning, technology projects, data, and website.

With 83 posts to our blog last year, we covered a lot of topics in 2015! Which ones were most read? We tally them up in our year-end entry, Top 9 of 2015 - our most popular posts (December 18, 2015). Read 'em all to see if your favorites made the list!

We gather together each December for lots of reasons, not the least of which is ASAE's Technology Conference & Expo. Our very last post of December provides just a few of Our Tech15 Takeaways (December 22, 2015), but gives us lots to think about in 2016.

Speaking of which... what topics are on your mind? what would you like to see on our blog? what sessions would you like to see us speaking in? Drop us a note at to let us know—or to receive this monthly roundup directly in your inbox. Here's to a great year!
