    Topic
    As per Google and Boston Consulting Group, globally digital payments are expected to increase 3.3X to 4.2 $trillion by 2020, up from 1.2 $trillion in 2015. Digital payments which account for just 8% of retail payments currently is expected to jump to 18-24% by 2020.

    There are no doubts that we are at the beginning of an exciting era of transformations in the digital banking space because there are many important trends around us that is fueling this shift. Examples - the increase in the number of smart phones and mobile internet usage, entry of non traditional/new players into the fintech space, more demanding customer base, enabling country/government regulations like the recent "demonetisation" exercise in India.

    One thing that is a major concern in the minds of consumers, companies and agencies, and currently having a high potential to become the party spoiler is the topic of Cyber Security.

    In this webinar we will cover the latest trends in security risks when it comes to digital banking, and how to mitigate them.

    A must-attend for Security, IT and Product Dev leadership catering to the Banking, Insurance and Financial Services Industry.

  • Building a Unified Security Issues Management Process - Using RSA Archer Building a Unified Security Issues Management Process - Using RSA Archer Jayesh Kamat, VP and Practice Head - Risk Advisory Services @Aujas, Vikram Sharma, Global Lead, GRC @Aujas Recorded: Feb 9 2017 36 mins
    Topic
    In this webinar, we will cover how to develop a centralized issue management solution leveraging RSA Archer to integrate, manage and visualize overall risk postures of applications, systems and devices.

    Given the threat landscape reality, it is hard to find organizations that have not been doing anything about it, but are you doing the "right" things?

    Management of security issues in a large enterprise usually translates to dealing with several different tools like baseline control testers, vulnerability scanners, and SAST/DAST (Static/Dynamic Application Security Testing) tools. These tools are typically operated by various independent teams that churn out a deluge of reports on a periodic basis. These could be overwhelming to the system administrators.

    Multitudes of systems and multitudes of fixes have to compete with lack of time, lack of resources, compatibility issues and lack of visibility. It is very difficult for the application owners and security teams to get an overall sense of risk exposure, and what to prioritize from a risk mitigation perspective.

    We will be sharing some of the best practices in the industry gained by working with some of the best security-first organizations in the world.

  • Enhance Vulnerability Management with Analytics (+) Vulnerability Intelligence Enhance Vulnerability Management with Analytics (+) Vulnerability Intelligence Sameer Shelke, CTO and Co-Founder, Aujas Recorded: Jan 25 2017 55 mins
    Vulnerability Management is one of the first chapters in security, yet something that most of us still struggle with.

    Our favorite is this one liner from the Verizon 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report. "Vulnerability management has been a Sisyphean endeavor for decades" (as per Greek mythology - Sisyphean was a king who was cursed to roll a large boulder up a hill, only to watch it come back to hit him, repeating this action for eternity.)

    Unlike in the Greek times, today there is lot of data that can help. In-fact there is an overwhelming quantity of vulnerability and threat information available. The challenge is what to do with it in order to help mitigate risk better.
    How do you pick the ones that are relevant to your specific case, How you action upon it and How you manage your remediation cycle before the next one hits you.

    It is a game where the odds are always stacked up against you and you are always running to catch-up, to be repeated again in the next cycle.

    How to change this ?

    In this webinar we talk about Vulnerability Intelligence, and why and how it can help make Analytics really work in managing your vulnerability management cycles better.

    Technology is driving business change at a breath-taking pace. Digital transformation is the watchword – established enterprises need to adapt rapidly to compete with agile and flexible digital-first disruptors as well as cater to their customers’ evolving requirements. To hold back is to court obsolescence.

This is crucial if organizations are to find differentiation and competitive edge in the battle for customer loyalty.

    Cloud has become a key agent for digital transformation with cloud first strategies becoming the new norm. With many enterprises now employing multiple cloud combinations, this webinar will look at the trends and expectations for these different environments, drawing upon a new study from 451 Research commissioned by VMware and Atos.

    Myanmar's Economic and Industrial Evolution Creating Growth Opportunities
    Global interest in Myanmar as an investment destination has increased in the past five years following liberalization efforts and other reforms. The country has since witnessed commendable expansion in foreign investment, trade, and gross domestic product (GDP). Enabling factors such as the recent opening of the first special economic zone (SEZ), a rising middle class, and supportive new government policies for businesses will only help accelerate Myanmar's catch-up process. In light of these developments, Frost & Sullivan's upcoming webinar will enable you to:

    • Gain a deeper knowledge of Myanmar's economic and business conditions
    • Learn more about the legal and financial landscape in Myanmar
    • Leverage insights and trends associated with key emerging industries
    • Engage in a live Q&A session with Frost & Sullivan experts as well as private sector representatives
  • Get off that Vulnerability Management Hamster Wheel - Right Now! Get off that Vulnerability Management Hamster Wheel - Right Now! Sasi Kumar Ganesan, VP Product Engineering @Aujas Mar 15 2017 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In simple cybersecurity language - Vulnerability Management is all about identifying and fixing critical security vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure. But it is easier said than done due to the following 2 main challenges:

    1. WHAT are the right vulnerabilities to fix?
    There is a deluge of information regarding vulnerabilities, threats and exploits out there, and it is a struggle to know what is relevant to my context. My organization. CVSS scores don't necessarily reflect the criticality to my assets.

    2. HOW to fix them quickly?
    Once you manage to identify the right vulnerabilities to fix, the challenge is to get it done quickly, given the large set of assets and dependencies on multiple distributed teams to fix things.

    It is like we are always running to catch-up - the typical hamster wheel of Vulnerability Management - you are continuously working hard, but never get there, no matter how hard you try. And before you complete one cycle, the next one hits you!

    In this webinar we will talk about the challenges in more detail and how using a combination of vulnerability intelligence, analytics, AI and smart workflows, you can make it work for you, so that you can get off that hamster wheel once and forever.

  • Lean data for marketers: How your org can stand out among lazy competitors Lean data for marketers: How your org can stand out among lazy competitors Jascha Kaykas-Wolff, CMO, Mozilla Mar 16 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Today’s marketing has a dirty secret: it’s gotten lazy. During the past decade the number of marketing technology tools has exploded to well over 3,000. Overwhelmingly those tools have focused on collecting, organizing and finding insights from data. In response, marketers have defined growth as a mathematical exercise of collecting bigger and bigger datasets. Get all the data you can, goes the conventional wisdom, and software will find the magic bullet buried within the numbers.

    But what if we’re buying these marketing tools, because we think they will help us achieve growth where there isn’t a viable product market fit? What if it’s easier to continue to collect data than to take a risk without absolute certainty? What if we don’t need customer data beyond what’s explicitly been given to us by the customers already?

    Join our latest VB Live event for insight into how to adapt to the emergence of conscious choosers and build trust with your customers.

    In this webinar, you’ll:
    * Discuss how big data and marketing data collection tools have made marketers lazy
    * Learn about conscious choosers and how trust can help grow your business performance
    * Hear about lean data practices and practical tips

    Speakers:

    * Jascha Kaykas-Wolff, CMO, Mozilla
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, VentureBeat

    With the advent of Big Data came not only new ways to optimise business and marketing processes, but also new concerns over the control and privacy of personal data. This gave rise to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a modernisation and harmonisation of data protection laws in the European Economic Area.

    The GDPR gives individuals greater control over their personal data, while also streamlining regulation and fostering consumer trust in businesses. However, with implementation just around the corner in 2018, over 90% of businesses are still underprepared for compliance within the next two years(1).

    Join this webinar to learn about:
    •What GDPR entails and what the timelines are
    •Who's who in the protection of personal data
    •Business concerns with the GDPR
    •Key steps of the journey towards GDPR compliance

  • The Customer Data Best Practices Your Digital Transformation Needs The Customer Data Best Practices Your Digital Transformation Needs Thomas Brence, Director of Product Marketing, Informatica & Monica Mullen, Principal Solutions Marketing Manager, Informatica Mar 29 2017 3:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    If you’re betting your future on digital transformation initiatives to increase the loyalty of a changing customer base, don’t overlook the state of your customer data. It’s not only customer expectations and demographics that are changing, but how you reach customers is in a perpetual state of flux. Twenty percent of addresses, thirty percent of email addresses and eighteen percent of phone numbers change every year. People change jobs, get married, have families – and have different needs as a business person, with their families, or with their friends. Relying on customer data that is inaccurate and unreliable leads to offers that fall flat, higher program costs, and lower team productivity.

    Join us to learn:

    - Customer data best practices to support your digital transformation investments
    - How you can keep customer contact data in Salesforce relevant and accurate to boost team productivity and increase trust in your data
    - The ways you can easily verify, validate and enrich your customer data for better customer understanding and actionable insights

  • Streamlining Your Data-Security Program to Meet Regulatory Change Streamlining Your Data-Security Program to Meet Regulatory Change Kelley Vick, IT GRC Forum, HPE Security - Data Security Apr 4 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data security and the challenge of data protection is increasing in scope and difficulty. The massive volume of data that businesses are collecting is growing exponentially, and managing compliance delivery is a daunting task with huge negative consequences for getting it wrong. While organizations have long needed to safeguard intellectual property and confidential information, changes in information technology and business models introduce new threats, and new regulations. Governments and industry bodies are imposing new regulations to motivate organizations to protect the privacy and confidentiality of information. Responsibilities can vary widely by region and by industry, and staying on top of an ever-shifting regulatory landscape is complex and challenging, but it isn't impossible.

    Successful organizations coordinate enterprise-wide regulatory compliance activities with tools to identify and address new and changing regulations, and are able to map the impact of these regulations across the entire infrastructure, and prioritize compliance activities according to business impact. By deploying a consistent, sustainable, scalable and measurable process for managing regulatory change, they are able to eliminate manual, non-scalable and non-strategic activities to reduce the cost and improve the speed of regulatory compliance programs.

    On this webinar our panel of experts will discuss the key points to streamline your data-security program and meet regulatory change.
