  • Harnessing the Power of the Clinical Data Avalanche
    Harnessing the Power of the Clinical Data Avalanche
    SciMar ONE, LLC Live 60 mins
    There is new lexicon for an old scientific challenge. The World Health Organization (WHO) has named the overabundance of COVID-19 information the “infodemic.” While COVID-19 has highlighted the challenge of identifying, aggregating and analyzing validated clinical data to fight diseases; other scientifically complicated diseases with large patient populations have the same challenge. Diseases meeting these criteria are referred to as emerging diseases, because while they may not be new, the science has evolved, and their markets are projected to emerge.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    - Discuss the data avalanche and its impact on the healthcare industry today.
    - Explain the utility of different clinical data types by various stakeholders in healthcare.
    - Determine challenges of culling the data avalanche quickly and efficiently.
    - Discuss potential pros and cons of data sharing amongst stakeholders.
  • Ransomware Survival Guide: Education
    Ransomware Survival Guide: Education
    Ritesh Agrawal, CEO, Airgap Networks Recorded: Nov 23 2020 42 mins
    Ransomware attacks continue to plague K–12 schools nationwide, and they’re not slowing down anytime soon. In the pandemic, more than 1,000 educational institutions have fallen victim to ransomware, according to a report by security firm Armor. With most schools implementing some form of online instruction this school year, these attacks have only increased in volume and speed, and their impact is much more significant.

    In addition to the ransom itself, these attacks can exact a heavy cost: school district operation disruption, remediation costs, and job implication.

    In this BrightTalk session, Edu tech and IT will learn:
    How ransomware is surging in a remote/online learning environment?
    What is the fundamental mind shift in network design required?
    What to do before, during, and after a ransomware attack with Zero Trust solution?
    Why you shouldn’t and cannot pay ransoms?
    What is Ransomware Kill Switch and how it can protect you?
    How to stop ransomware propagation in seconds?

  • Технический Workshop ESM
    Технический Workshop ESM
    Андрей Косыгин, ведущий архитектор решений Micro Focus в России и СНГ. Recorded: Nov 23 2020 201 mins
    Компания Micro Focus приглашает вас присоединится к виртуальному Техническому семинару по Enterprise Service Management (ESM).

    На семинаре мы не только обсудим, что такое корпоративное управление сервисами Enterprise Service Management, (ESM), но и увидим, как реализовать этот подход с использованием современных средств ITSM

    Сотрудники ИТ-служб уже привыкли к выгодам, которые несет выстраивание процессов на принципах ITIL и ITSM: это удобно, эффективно, безопасно, ИТ со своим делом справляется, бизнес-заказчик доволен. Но зачастую бизнес, который, казалось бы, должен быть кардинальным образом заинтересован в том, чтобы доволен был его клиент, не использует возможности и наработки ИТ в области управления сервисной деятельностью, продолжая работать по старинке. А между тем, поступающие от клиентов обращения теряются, или пересылаются не туда, или остаются без своевременного ответа…

    Хочется верить, что успешная практика ИТ поможет этим организациям. Тем более что с каждым днем мы видим все больше примеров как средств автоматизации, которые успешно позволяют это реализовать, так и компаний, которые уже работают по новым принципам.

Identity Analytics surpasses human capabilities by leveraging ML models to define, review and confirm accounts and entitlements for access. It uses dynamic risk scores and advanced analytics data as key indicators for provisioning, de-provisioning, authentication, and PAM.

    Although the pandemic has upended nearly every part of our lives, the speed at which insurers are moving to digitize processes is still moving at a glacial pace. And why is that? Data clearly points to the importance of customer experience with respect to both increasing new business and retaining current customers, and that same data emphasizes that digitization is the best way to optimize and streamline processes - which positively impacts customer experience.

    What is keeping insurers from just talking about innovating and actually innovating?

  • Asset Allocation Modeling with Black Swans Using Monte Carlo Simulation
    Asset Allocation Modeling with Black Swans Using Monte Carlo Simulation
    Joe DiNunno, Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Recorded: Nov 19 2020 59 mins
    The traditional approach to asset allocation has been to use efficient frontier models that seek to find the optimal portfolio mix that has the lowest possible level of risk (standard deviation) for its level of return (mean). In these models all asset class returns are assumed to follow the normal distribution. The financial crisis of 2008 convinced us that it was time to look closer at the use of the normal distribution for modeling the probability of investment returns, in particular for equities. While the normal distribution assigns about 1 chance in 1000 for the stock market to experience a 3-standard-deviation decline, such as the market experienced in 2008, the reality is that a move of this magnitude occurs more frequently than that. Looking back at historical data, a move up or down of 3 standard deviations or more, over 6 months to a year, happens more like 2 out of every 100 time periods. The problem then is: How do you add 'Fat Tails' (outlier events that occur more frequently in reality than would be predicted by the normal distribution) to the model distribution in an effort to give the ‘theoretical’ stock market a more realistic chance of experiencing one of these unexpected 'Black Swan' events?
    In this webinar we'll demonstrate how @RISK can be used to create financial models that give investors a more realistic view of the risks in their portfolios by incorporating simulated distributions that more closely resemble reality and provide more realistic 'Fat Tails'. Another revelation of the financial debacle in 2008 was the fact that correlations between most asset classes were, at least temporarily, much higher than expected. On the other hand, some asset classes that historically had a low or negative correlation with equities had positive returns that year, a result that makes sense. In this case we'll talk about how we were able to incorporate a second correlation table in to our model to account for stress in financial markets.

    Beneficial Ownership – Is Europe connecting the dots?
    Neil Isherwood - Due Diligence Subject Matter Expert, Dun & Bradstreet Nov 24 2020 2:00 pm UTC 34 mins
    Understanding Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBOs) is a fundamental regulatory requirement in EU Money Laundering Directives. To support this drive, the EU Commission has been tasked to connect the various UBO registers at EU level by 10th March, 2021, to provide a consistent and transparent pool of information on UBOs across the region.

    However, as with all of the EU Money Laundering Directives, each member state has, or will, implement directives in the way that best suits their unique frameworks and political needs. When it comes to aligning the registers, this presents some challenges.
    Some states are still in the process of setting up their register, while registration isn’t required in others. Some require payment for access to the data, while others don’t currently make the data publicly available at all. Data also differs between regions, for example whether legitimate interest is required.

    During this webinar, we take a look at:
    •the landscape of the EU Money Laundering Directives with a focus on Beneficial Ownership
    •the approaches being used
    •how the future connection of registers may work

    Tim Yorke (AXA), Michael Zimmer (Zurich), Bradley O'Connor (Beazley), Ed Challis (Re:infer) Nov 24 2020 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Delivering quick response times is now vital for any high-growth business. But most underwriters don’t have the infrastructure to automate unstructured communications at scale—especially when it comes to the broker relationship.

    In fact, according to a recent case study by Hiscox, 97% of broker requests are incorrectly routed. Leverage automation in underwriting and you’ll maximize the likelihood of a timely response, saving both time and money.

    In this webinar, you'll find out how automation is reducing manual workload for underwriters, streamlining operations, and elevating the broker experience.

    You’ll find out how to:

    - Avoid intellectual waste: Exploit automation to reduce the time skilled underwriters spend on repetitive tasks and redirect labour to adding real value—developing the client relationship
    - Streamline communications: Integrate robotic process automation, machine learning, language processing, optical character recognition and analytics to triage submissions from multiple sources, detect and remove duplications, reduce human error and ultimately reduce processing time
    - It’s not just about being faster…use automation and analytics to make better quality underwriting decisions and select the right risk
    - Pinpoint the opportunity automation creates to reduce costs in terms of new hires and efficiency savings
    - Explore how automation can be used to elevate the broker experience, drive efficient operations, and dramatically speed up response times

    And hear from these automation experts:

    How to Reduce Inefficiencies in Healthcare with ML
    Grant Proctor, Account Executive at Hyperscience Nov 24 2020 4:00 pm UTC 23 mins
    The healthcare industry is massive and the growth is not going to slow down any time soon. The industry itself is built on information, billions of documents are generated and moved around every day. It is critical these documents get into the right hands at the right time. As well as, the information on the documents must be recorded and transferred as accurately as possible. Currently, the inaccuracy rate for these documents is extremely high due to the manual process of entering data.

    The industry sees a wide variety of documents which is why there has not been a reliable solution to date. Though there are systems that can reduce the inefficiencies doctors and healthcare professionals are seeing. With the assistance of machine learning, the healthcare industry could see vast improvements.

    In this session, Grant Proctor, Account Executive at Hyperscience, takes a deep dive into the healthcare industry and talks about how automation could be a part of the solution. Watch to hear more about:

    -Types of documents the healthcare industry receives and why the differences are so important

  • 1-2-3 clicks: Optimized checkout experience boosting your conversion rates
    1-2-3 clicks: Optimized checkout experience boosting your conversion rates
    Jukka Yliuntinen, Head of Digital Solutions for Financial Institutions Nov 24 2020 11:00 pm UTC 14 mins
    With shopping shifting from brick-and-mortar to online, the amount of payment frauds have increased. For customers, updating and handling payment credentials and personal data at the checkout can be a real conversion killer. For online merchants, storing this type of data opens up for great risks if data breaches occur. With card-on-file tokenization, the customer can pay frictionless without having to worry about where sensitive credentals are stored, or have to update expiring card data. For online merchants, no payment data is stored making the checkout process not only more secure but also quicker.
    In this talk, our digital payment champions Jukka Yliuntinen and Dietmar Maierhöfer will take you behind the scenes and give insights in how this is done.
  • The Journey to Becoming a Data-Driven, Privacy-First Bank
    The Journey to Becoming a Data-Driven, Privacy-First Bank
    Sean Butler, Director of Product Marketing, Privitar, & Marcel Kramer, Head of Data Engineering, ABN Amro Nov 25 2020 1:15 am UTC 30 mins
    As financial institutions seek to leverage data for competitive advantage, there is a growing regulatory and reputational risk that calls for the protection of sensitive data. Much of the data held by these institutions is too sensitive to release for general use, since it contains financial and personal information related to customers. To make data available for analysis, it is essential to minimise identifiable information and limit access appropriately. To become data-driven as well, the bank must analyse and innovate rapidly.

    Join this session to learn:

    - What actionable steps can you take to harness data-driven innovation.
    - How you can build data privacy best practices into everything that your bank does.
    - How to build a technology stack that enables you to scale and grow your bank by maximising the safe use of sensitive data.

    People often assume that application security, or AppSec, focuses solely on the security involved in the development of an app or service.
    Wrong! Sure, this is a vital part of it, but there are several other areas that are just as important as the code used in development:

    -Design
    -Operations
    -Testing
    -Deployment
    -Maintenance

    AppSec ultimately covers the security of an app from inception to deployment, use and maintenance; it’s a process spanning the application’s lifetime and you must be there every step of the way.
