  • Insights with Cyber Leaders - Patrick Heuri
    Insights with Cyber Leaders - Patrick Heuri Amar Singh Cyber Management Alliance Recorded: Sep 22 2017 22 mins
    Insights with Cyber Leaders series brings you a fascinating Interview with Patrik Heuri former Global Head of Information Security Risk at HSBC Private Bank.

    Moving from an information security role into a cyber security role has been challenging. Patrik explains his thoughts in that when you think about information security, you think of it as a technical subject, and that’s correct. In fact, most project leads will, when they start as juniors, learn the necessary techniques and methodologies they will need to develop their expertise as an IT security officer. However, further down the line of their careers, Patrik believes that there is a requirement to better understand the legal aspects to cyber and information security, such as regulations and compliance, and the information production within the organisation. He adds that it will be of great benefit to anyone entering the information security/cyber security space to train and work with the legal teams on IT matters.

    Win and Wow Customers – 6 Best Practices for Onboarding in Banking and Insurance Sheryl Kingstone-451 Research, Jim Marous-Financial Brand, and Sarah Johnson-Kofax Recorded: Sep 21 2017 59 mins
    Banks, credit unions and insurance companies may have differing business models, but they all have a common goal: better conversion and retention rates.

    Fortunately, better customer onboarding usually translates to better conversion and retention. For this reason, organizations continue to invest in digital technologies to streamline operations and eliminate time-consuming online interactions in areas such as new account opening, loan origination and policy applications.

    Those first information-intensive interactions, of course, are the most critical: you usually only get once chance to win a new customer’s business. But winning is only part of the equation. What if you could win—and wow—customers from those first moments and keep them engaged throughout the onboarding process?

    Mark your calendars for this upcoming webinar, where industry experts will share six best practices to help your organization win and wow customers:

    • Easy—Enable instant image and data capture via web and mobile technology
    • Accurate—Extract data from pictures of physical documents without error-prone manual entry
    • Automated—Invest in workflow tools to automate and track completion of process steps
    • Visible—Empower staff and customers with process transparency and timely communication
    • Consistent—Ensure data is complete and integrated across internal systems
    • Efficient—Meet expectations for speed, while effectively managing regulatory risks

    Speakers will include:

    • Where cyber resiliency differs from traditional business continuity management
    • How to determine your organization's need for cyber resiliency
    • Practical ways to assess your current and future organizational exposure

    Forget Oracle, IBM or any of the other big-name, publicly traded acquirers that – until now --have always set the tone in the tech M&A market.

This is the first time in the history of the multibillion-dollar tech M&A market that financial acquirers have been busier than these strategic acquirers. To understand how the ever-growing influence of buyout shops is reshaping the tech industry, join 451 Research for an hour-long webinar on Thursday, Sept. 7 2017.

  • The Top 5 Myths of Archiving
    The Top 5 Myths of Archiving Bill Tolson, Archive 360 & Gopal Ramanujam, Actiance Recorded: Aug 15 2017 53 mins
    Suffice it to say that traditional email archiving is a mature technology category. However, more firms are looking at archiving today for the first time as their ‘keep everything forever’ strategies have failed. Others are motivated by a move to Office365, while some are looking for new approaches to address the growing challenges of social media, instant messaging, and rich media communications channels that are growing organically inside their firms.

    Whatever the driver, archiving remains misunderstood by many – both within IT and across business units. Join us and our guest Bill Tolson from Archive360 as we explore and attempt to clarify the top 5 archiving myths:

    • Archiving is primarily for email storage;
    • Archiving is only necessary for regulated firms;
    • Archiving leads to the risk of over-preservation;
    • Cloud archiving is more expensive and less secure than traditional on-premises archiving;
    • End-users don’t benefit from Archiving

    We’ll wrap up with a brief overview of how Actiance and Archive360 are enabling organizations to address these myths and achieve their information governance objectives.

  • Information Governance and the Cloud
    Information Governance and the Cloud Bill Tolson, Actiance & Jim Shook, Esq, EMC Corp. Recorded: Aug 1 2017 58 mins
    With the cloud computing promise of faster, better and cheaper, everyone needs a cloud strategy. But the strategy needs to be informed because legal and regulatory obligations, including eDiscovery, remain the company’s responsibility even when a third party cloud provider has the data. Public, private and hybrid clouds all have different characteristics that impact access to, control of and remedies for issues related to your organization’s data. Changing regulations on data privacy and security alter the risk profile for maintaining data in different types of clouds, and even the location of the cloud can be important.

    In this webcast we have discussed some of the important differences between cloud models and how organizations can develop a strategy that best meets their requirements. In this webcast, we’ll address the following questions:

    • What are the basic cloud deployment models?
    • What are the key compliance benefits and risks of public and private clouds for email?
    • How can my organization determine which types of data are the best fit for the different cloud models?
    • What are some of the current and up-and-coming trends that may impact some of my cloud decisions?

    Know your (cyber) enemy
    Technology advancements have changed the way financial services operate, but they have also ushered in new challenges and threats.
    What are the risks, how big are they and what is the impact? Eg. Data theft versus system shut downs – which has a greater economic threat?

    When financial services are attacked…
    Cyber criminals have exposed vulnerabilities of financial institutions to disturbing effect. Is it more effective for banks to counter cyber risks on their own, or collectively as an industry? Would it help to have a central regulator for bank cyber security? When assessing counterparty risks, how much weightage is placed on their cyber security controls?

    Responding to the cyber challenge – how financial services can best prepare
    The establishment of regulatory controls and standards can only go so far, and the industry itself need to do much more to improve the situation – getting the basics right in a legacy environment, sharing best practices, building a security-based culture etc…

    Looking ahead: Anticipating paradigm shifts
    How much closer are we to creating ‘unhackable’ systems? Can quantum computing or other technologies present a cost-efficient solution?

    If you think criminals are bored of Ransomware, think again! The ransomware market is anything but boring. Criminals are continuing to flock to ransomware as the barriers to entry, RaaS or ransomware-as-a-service, make it easy for anyone to try their luck at digital extortion. The authors behind Cerber — currently the most prominent ransomware family — release updated variants every 8.4 days on average!

  • Connected devices and the rise of invisible payments
    Connected devices and the rise of invisible payments Kevin Gordon, Lead Innovation Architect, Worldpay Oct 17 2017 4:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    By 2020, five billion people will be online, with 25 billion devices and machines using the Internet. Many devices will share data and services, and the way we engage with them will fundamentally change. In a connected world, consumer expectations of executing transactions on a phone, tablet, VR device – or even a refrigerator – will be higher than ever.

    As time goes on, devices will become smarter and make more and more decisions for us. We’ll be able to create rules as users to tell our devices what we’re comfortable with them paying for automatically. The use cases for rule-based payment are endless!

    As such, the onus of creating frictionless download and shopping experiences while overcoming barriers between devices lies with each business. When it comes to recurring and subscription payments, the technology underpinning these user experiences across devices is critical. Seamless, simple, and secure are the watchwords of an IoT world.

    Don’t wait until 2020 to address consumer pain points and overcome technological barriers to IoT adoption. Tune in to the latest VB Live event and hone in on the fastest, best ways to prepare for the IoT world. After all, it’s already here. Attend this webinar and find out:

    •How companies are already dealing with device connectivity
    •How the challenges posed by IoT are being solved for today
    •Global consumer attitudes around payments made by devices
    •How payments will become ‘invisible’ or ‘translucent’ for users
    •Payment technology that will enable devices to make decisions

  • What Chance Does an Organisation have in Post-Apocalyptic GDPR World?
    What Chance Does an Organisation have in Post-Apocalyptic GDPR World? Amar Singh & Chris Payne Oct 19 2017 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    With the greatest shake-up of data protection regulation in a generation looming, CISOs, DPOs and IT Administrators are busy planning for the changes needed for their organisations to be compliant. But with 60% of IT executives suggesting staff as their biggest threat to adherence (Bluesource, 2017) and 90% of staff admitting to violating policies designed to prevent security incidents (BSI, 2017), have they really addressed the issue of friendly fire?

    In this live, informative and interactive webinar led by Amar Singh, Global CISO & CEO of Cyber Management Alliance. A panel of data security and policy experts will discuss, why staff remain such an active threat to GDPR compliance, why policies are being ignored and how to ensure that your staff are on-board with the GDPR before May 2018.

  • Data security: Minimizing global risk, maximizing recovery
    Data security: Minimizing global risk, maximizing recovery Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Nov 16 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We’re certainly not going to get less connected, less global, or collect less data -- but data breaches are more common than ever; 4,000 were reported just last year. It’s time to figure out how to minimize risk, reduce vulnerabilities end-to-end, and most importantly, deal swiftly and decisively with any breaches that break through our carefully constructed barriers.

    And it’s more important than ever in the wake of the increased regulatory pressures, especially with the GDPR coming into effect in May 2018, and personally identifiable information (PII) becoming more broadly defined.

    Data security is a big task, but best practices are beating out the bad guys. A strategy in place means less collateral damage, quicker bounceback, and intact customer confidence.

    You’ll learn about:
    * End-to-end data protection in the payment industry
    * Repairing tanked customer relationships and reputations after a breach
    * What General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulations mean for your company
    * What is the future of GLOBAL attacks and how do US-based companies address them?
