Rebuilding and Rethinking after September
The Chicago Research
and Planning Group and our members join the world condemning the devastation
in New York and Washington D.C. on September 11, 2001. Our sympathies go out to
the families of those who have lost their lives. Tragedies bring out the best in
us and we would like to give our thanks to those in rescue activities.

and small must rebuild quickly. With devastation of this magnitude even a

their comrades in New York, companies must help companies - Chicago's technology
community must come to the aid of many New York companies. As the largest
organization of CIO's in the United States the Chicago Research and Planning
Group, in cooperation with other organizations, hopes to match companies affected by the
terrorist attacks with aid from companies in Chicago and elsewhere.

increased concern about Network Security from corporations. This is rapidly
becoming a priority for CIOs throughout Chicago. We are planning the next
meeting in November and another in January.
There are several sites on the net concerning Network Security and several
members are working to create a CIO Portal containing
many of these sites. Here are some
Again we offer our deepest sympathies to those who have suffered a loss. It
is time to Rebuild and Rethink.
