    Symantec and Deloitte discuss “Trust” and Data Privacy in Australia Brian Fletcher, Director, Government Affairs, Symantec; Marta Ganko, National Privacy and Data Lead, Risk Advisory, Deloitte Recorded: Aug 17 2017 60 mins
    With the advent of Big Data comes not only new ways to optimise business and marketing processes, but also new concerns over the control and privacy of personal data.

    These have given rise to local and regional data protection laws and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a modernisation of data protection laws in the European Union, and the Australian data breach notification law, an amendment to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) which introduces a mandatory scheme for eligible organisations and federal agencies to report data breaches.

    Data breach notifications give individuals greater control over their personal data and promote transparency over information handling practices, fostering consumer trust in businesses. The law requires businesses to prepare and assess risks to maintain brand confidence even if an incident becomes the next data breach headline.

    Join this webinar to learn about:

    - New challenges introduced by the Australian mandatory data breach notification law
    - Key steps in the journey towards data privacy compliance
    - How to monitor insider threats
    - How to leverage these regulations to gain trust and ensure great customer experiences

    We look forward to your participation in this free webinar.

    Learn how you can protect both BYOD and corporate managed mobile devices from ransomware and advanced threats.

    Malware targeting mobile devices are growing at an alarming rate. According to Symantec ISTR 22 report, mobile malware detections doubled in 2016 to a total of 18.4 million and there were 606 new mobile vulnerabilities found in 2016 on both iOS and Android mobile operating systems.

Existing management tools like Mobile Device Management (MDM) or Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) are not able to defend users against these types of threats.

    Enterprises need advanced mobile security with high efficacy with easier deployment options as they continue to expand Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and corporate managed mobility initiatives.

E-signature solutions boost automation for banks, reducing errors and the costs incurred by these paper-dependent processes. Fifty-one percent of retail banking executives expect spending on electronic signature technology to increase over the next two years. Since nearly a quarter of banks that had digital technology in 2016 adopted it in the last two years, lessons can be learned from those that have already made the transition.*

    However, it is not about the bottom line, in a recent study 42% of global customers preferred digital channels however 30% of customers opening an account online had to go to the branch to sign paperwork. Enabling digital account opening for customers with electronic signatures allows for a true end-to-end process. As consumers continue to incorporate digital interactions into their daily activities, retail banking executives have the opportunity to streamline their own processes to improve the customer journey across all delivery channels, including online, mobile, call center and modernizing the in-branch experience.

    Data-Driven Digital Transformation - The Key to Effective Marketing & Analytics Don Nanneman, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Informatica Recorded: Aug 1 2017 29 mins
    Advances in marketing technologies, programs and processes have exploded over the past few years. To take better advantage of these innovations, you need to fuel them with trusted, governed, relevant and authoritative data. The results are deeper customer insights around relationships so that you can unleash differentiated customer engagement and personalized experiences.

    Businesses are drowning in a deluge of data collected from so many sources and in so many formats. To unleash the power of data, information needs to be intelligently shared by multiple applications across the business. However, the quality of the data can't always be guaranteed, resulting in errors and wasted effort. Equally important, analytics using bad data will produce inaccurate results leading to poor decision making. With the right technology and an intelligent data-driven approach, companies can effectively see, understand, and share data insights across their organizations.

    Trusted by over 4,000 Salesforce customers, the Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services offers the most complete suite of modular data management services for the Salesforce Sales, Service, Marketing, Commerce, IoT and Analytics Clouds.

    Over 90% of the world’s data has been generated in the last few years. Accompanying this rapid growth in data comes exponential risks, as witnessed by the spike in cyber attacks of which no organization seems immune. The financial rewards gained by the perpetuators of cyber attacks is blatant, and this is driving continued attacks on companies containing massive amounts of consumer data. For these companies securing data is only half the battle. The risks can be greater when data is transmitted externally, hence it is critical that organizations know where sensitive data is going, how it is being transmitted, and how it is being handled and stored.

    On this webinar our panel of experts will discuss some of the best practices organizations can consider to reduce the risk of suffering from a data breach, and to proactively prepare for any subsequent breach that could happen.

  • Hybrid & Multi-cloud environments: Strategies for migration & app modernization
    Hybrid & Multi-cloud environments: Strategies for migration & app modernization Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, 451 Research with Shashi Kiran, CMO, Quali Sep 6 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Hybrid clouds are important for enterprises having on-premise deployments as well as legacy applications. Likewise, multi-cloud scenarios appeal to organizations that want the flexibility to move between different clouds and not get locked-in into either one public or private clouds architecture. While over 70% of enterprises have expressed a need to deploy hybrid and/or multi-cloud architectures, as they modernize their application architectures the rollouts are complex and time consuming causing budget overruns and delays. The complexity is largely associated with the lack of common tooling, mismatched cloud architectures and expertise. These can be significantly overcome by providing access to on-demand, self-service IT environments (on-premise as well as public cloud, or a combination thereof), that would allow for more predictable application performance and security, thereby allowing for faster cloud migration and rollout, with reduced cost and risk.

    Join this webinar with 451 research and Quali to learn:
    •Current trends in hybrid and multi-cloud deployments and enterprise requirements
    •How incorporating sandboxes and self-service environments in the workflow can smoothen cloud migration, hybrid deployments and the flexibility of multi-cloud deployment. Demo included.
    •Sample case study of an enterprise undergoing cloud migration with best practice recommendations
