The Pentagon reports 10 million cyberattacks daily. Federal, state and local government agencies need to safeguard information and maintain control when addressing internal mandates for cloud migration. Do you know how many attacks you are experiencing on a daily basis? Do you know where those attacks are coming from? How long they have been in your environment?
While there is no silver bullet to combating either external or internal cyberattacks, there are steps you can take to build a defense strategy to protect your agency. Beyond just detecting attacks, you need to build up your defenses and take the necessary steps to protect your data and applications.
In this session, we will discuss how you can leverage the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite to help:
1. Monitor behavior on your internal network and detect abnormal behavior
2. Identify authentication irregularities from your users
3. Protect applications using two-factor authentication
4. Restrict access to confidential data
Practically every business collects terabytes of data from an array of sources, looking to analyze that data into meaningful insight that drives decisions. How come some organizations appear so successful while others simply vacuum up data, and then seemingly do little with the information?
No matter their individual results, overall investment shows no sign of slowing: Brands plan to increase their spending on cloud-based data platforms alone by 73 percent over the next three years, according to VB Insight's "The State of Marketing Analytics" report. They spend more than one-third of their marketing budgets on analytics tools, but marketing executives have limited confidence in analytics tools' ability to generate insight – despite the availability of more than 800 software options.

• Determine your organization's primary objectives for analytics

After the adrenaline rush from hitting your fan growth goal subsides, the harsh reality of "Now what?" takes over. Management starts asking about how you plan to monetize your fan base. They want to know what the return on investment is for all of your new found fans. If you're like most, you turn to the wall in a desperate attempt to publish offers only to be disappointed by the results (we'll talk more about why this happens on the webinar, but it's because transactional content gets low engagement, which means Facebook's EdgeRank algorithm filters those posts out of the stream). What you need are ads for fans. Did you know you can target your fans with ads just for them? And did you know they get an average of 7X higher click through rate; which not only means a higher response, but also makes them a much cheaper cost per click? Join us for this in-depth session on the least understood best practice in Facebook advertising and start delivering real business value from social campaigns.
Page admins all want to know a few things: What should I be posting on our wall? When should I post? How often should I post? How do I know if the posts I published performed well? To help answer those questions, Facebook recently released more post-level data. Webtrends was one of seven companies that was allowed early access to this data before it was publicly released, which lead to the development of Hoverstats. Hoverstats is a browser plugin that takes your Facebook data and overlays it directly on your Facebook page. It's core feature is the patent pending PSI, post score indicator, which calculates a score for each post from 0-100 based on a post's performance. Using PSI, page admins can easily compare their past posts using a single number to more easily see which posts are stars and which are duds. Justin Kistner will demo Hoverstats and PSI as well as share the insights that have surfaced from seeing countless scored posts.
During the webinar you'll learn how to apply real insights to your Facebook marketing efforts and get ahead of the curve. Justin Kistner will offer detailed data-driven explanations about the value of utilizing Facebook for your marketing campaigns along with tips, tricks and inspirational ideas.
