If these companies were affected then the foundation of computing could be at risk. If you could manipulate at the hardware layer via the firmware, BIOS, ect then a threat actor could weaponize well below the operating system which brings in to question the integrity of the entire computing stack and everything above it.  The firmware and bios are like the rebar and concrete for a building. If that foundation is weak then the entire structure and anything dependent on it is at risk. We cannot underestimate the potential or the severity of these companies being potentially affected by the SolarWinds hack and what that means for the foundational computing hardware they provide to the world.  What do others think ?  How could this impact your organization ?   Big tech companies including Intel, Nvidia, and Cisco were all infected during the SolarWinds hack - The Verge

What are some on-campus IT challenges for CIOs at universities or educational programmes?

Top Answer : I think one of the most important ones is a student user, a student experience. Our students are coming with the experience of Amazon and Google and they expect the same level of service, same level of experience when they get to the campus. And it is challenging when you don't have the resources or the manpower that the Amazons or the Googles have to meet those expectations. So managing those expectations and making sure that, on an efficient budget, you're delivering an efficient platform, that is still a challenging course for us.
