Deal With Privacy Implications Of Increased Ops Visibility

One of the key tenets of evolving IT ops in the era of DevOps is the hyper-instrumentation of software and infrastructure to increase reliability and improve practices along the way. Ops teams are moving toward AIOps practices that emphasize collecting as much IT data as possible, and crunching everything with machine learning and AI algorithms to be more responsive and predictive of potential performance problems. That's really good for uptime, but it can be problematic from a privacy perspective as AIOps moves from the data center to the edge.

"As AI on the edge grows, it's more viable for companies to monitor desktops, tablets, and other end-user devices," explains Jiayi Hoffman, machine learning architect at OpsRamp. "AIOps will ostensibly be able to see everything workers are doing on their devices. Considering how the lines have blurred between work and personal time, that means potentially having access to personal banking accounts or medical appointments, for instance."

Security leaders should be looking to help their CIOs and CTOs work with HR and legal in the coming year to "strike the right balance between monitoring devices for business stability and protecting individual worker privacy," Hoffman says.
