No enterprise can be completely secure, and in the uncertainty that necessarily permeates the landscape, others will find fault. This web conference provides a way for CIOs to use proven scientific and economic principles to enhance their organizations’ security position. Simply put, the most effective security programs reduce the most risk with the least resources; therefore, an organization must find a way to measure the efficacy of its security program to understand how much of the risk it is reducing after it applies security controls. With the appropriate key risk indicator (KRI) data collected, organizations can determine which initiatives are ultimately the most useful in their security program.

This IDC Retail Insights presentation summarizes our recent research on how shoppers sized up their 2017 holiday shopping experience and the recommendations we developed for customer experience (CX) strategies for the 2018 holiday shopping season. Here's the challenge: beyond its reach into 10's of millions of households, catalog, and CX technologies Amazon's hold on shoppers' wallets and shopping carts runs deep, as a leader in satisfying gift givers' emotional needs — engendering joy in finding the right gift and confidence in being treated fairly and squarely.
This research points to a number of strategies for outflanking shoppers' emotional connection to Amazon. Top performers engendering joy employ quite different business strategies to reach shoppers in these emotional dimensions. Amazon offers massive breadth and depth, TJX and Ross Stores win with the treasure hunt for deals, Nordstrom succeeds with service and curated assortments, and Best Buy offers well-curated assortments and well-trained associates.
Second part of our 'Breach Response Preparedness Series’, a 3-part series on state-of-the-art incident investigation techniques and breach response strategies.
Statistics (from M-Trends 2018) show that the median dwell time (time between initial intrusion, and detection) for EMEA organisations in 2017 was 175 days. A 175 days roaming free inside the victim’s infrastructure; a large portion of which likely would have been with administrator privileges, thereby having the keys to the kingdom. To be able to respond to such breaches effectively and efficiently, Mandiant applies a structured approach, relying on its scalable technology platform, and threat intelligence collected over the last 14 years.
Join your host Jeroen Herlaar, Mandiant Regional Director, for a 25-minute webinar to discuss the Mandiant incident response approach, and why it matters to your organisation if you are confronted with a serious compromise.
We all think we know the cost of a wrong hire in sales. Many of us have paid the heavy price, but we often do we overlook the person whose job it is to hire the best and get the best out of them, the Sales Manager. If you think hiring the wrong salesperson is expensive, you can multiply that cost by 5-10x when you hire the wrong sales manager.
* Does your manager try to manage the numbers?
* Is your manager focused on being a supervisor?
* Do they treat recruitment as a chore and an interruption to their real job?
* Are they taking too long or failing to manage turnover?
* Are they managing from an ivory tower?
* Do they confused training with coaching and why does this matter?
* Do they rescue & accidentally create a culture of upward delegation & learned helplessness?
* Do they believe the excuses they hear?
* Are they more concerned with being liked than being effective?
* Are they inconsistent or lack clarity?
* Do they do what was done to them?
* Are they blaming their salespeople instead of taking responsibility for fixing the problems you need them to fix?
* Are they focused on the helping the wrong people?
* Are they worried about playing favourites?
If you answered “yes’ to any of these questions YOU have a problem.
A webinar for owners, CEOs and sales managers who are brave enough to look into the abyss. Not for softies!

Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
So, what’s the solution?
A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.
Attend this session to learn:
• Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
• Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
• How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.
Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.
Emerging technologies are rapidly crafting a new scenario for the Future of WorkCulture, where companies across all industries will turn to online communities and platforms to acquire skills and temporary staff. They will move beyond traditional talent sourcing models towards a fast, virtual, borderless, and task-oriented job market.
This IDC’s Future of Work Research webcast sees European analysts give an overview of how technologies enable new talent sourcing scenarios across organizations, for example, leveraging sourcing and selection platforms, talent marketplace, and problem-solving crowdsourcing platforms.
Some of the key points to be discussed in this webcast will be:
1.What are the emerging ecosystem platforms for talent sourcing and what impact will they have on the future of WorkCulture?
2.How are organizations evolving their talent sourcing strategies? What are the consequences of renting knowledge from external talent pools rather than expertise living in the company?
3.Which organizational industries and units will adopt new talent sourcing models first?
You’ve just hired James Bond on to your sales team and you have high hopes for his performance. Assuming you really did hire James Bond and not Mr Bean in a Tux, what can you do to ensure disappointment?
Why! Fail to do a proper onboarding process! Delude yourself into thinking you hired an adult, a professional, someone who can be depended on to hit the ground running. “John is a big boy and doesn’t want me crowding him. I’ll let him get on with it.”
This is called management by abdication and is one of the cardinal sins of sales management.
Onboarding is the lost element of successful recruitment. The best sales managers have a 120 day onboarding plan for new hires. Why 120 days? Because that is the probation period a new hire is typically putting you (their manager, the job they actually bought, the company and the other people on the team) on in case they believe they have made a bad choice of career move.
You’ve invested time and money in attracting them, selecting them, offering them, legal & HR costs, managing their notice period, paying them, training them and you risk blowing your winnings because you’re too busy, too stupid or too lazy to finish the job you started!
Onboarding is not about giving them an Ops & Employee Manual to read, giving them some product training and provisioning them with passwords, a laptop and a phone. Those are the tiniest part of a good onboarding process. Onboarding should set up a new hire for success. It should be structured and confirm that you have made the right hire. It should tell you quickly if you haven’t so you can hire slow and fire fast.
A reliable onboarding process needs to cover 3 things:
* What do they need to know?
* By when do they need to know it?
* Where can they find it?
Third and final part of our 'Breach Response Preparedness Series', a 3-part series on state-of-the-art incident investigation techniques and breach response strategies.

A ‘Patent cliff’ describes a severe drop in revenue once the patent for a company’s leading product expires. The sharp revenue decline is a result of competitors being able to start developing and selling the product, often at a much lower price.
As US biopharmaceutical company Celgene struggles to get regulatory approval from the FDA, the company is facing major market, shares and revenue losses, and is facing a phenomenal patent cliff. Furthermore, research from EvaluatePharma reports that an estimated $250 billion in projected sales is at risk between 2018-2024 as many drugs lose exclusivity.
When it comes to acquisitions, the effects of a dwindling patent term can severely impact the value of your company. So how do you create 5-year plan to prepare for an inevitable patent cliff?

Data protection laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are complex, and can impact a broad range of business roles, including legal, audit, HR and finance, not just IT. In achieving GDPR compliance, organizations should focus on getting these roles to work together in ongoing efforts to ensure governance, risk and compliance (GRC) across an organization, and not be distracted by the noise in the marketplace. Through the process of integrating GRC practices real value can be achieved, as long as all stakeholders work with one another and take practical, measured steps toward integration. Join our panel of experts on this CPE accredited webinar to learn how your organization can achieve this.
- Find out how to align risk management with enterprise performance management under the GDPR.
- Learn how to work with stakeholders to effectively integrate compliance activities, and gain transparency, efficiency and agility for process operations.

I keep saying to business owners, C-Suite Executives, Managers and Employees that nothing happens in business until somebody sells something.
That’s the message of this webinar. Great organisations are those that understand people, create and adapt process and manage with empathy and leadership that inspires everyone in the business to work, breathe and share the core values that underpin everything the brand stands for.
Sales is all about people and the messages focus on why selling is an emotional experience and the essential human characteristics needed to be successful. It’s not about glittering CV’s or past reputation it’s about what you believe and how persuasive and authentic your messages are during your conversations between you and the client.
However, structure and processes that keep the business on track are an important part of any organisation’s success and having the right leaders in place that understand people and live and breathe the visions and values of the company is an essential part of the machine.
Great people, processes that work and inspired leadership is what this webinar is all about.
With the ever-increasing frequency and sophistication of security threats to organisations, business leaders need to have a comprehensive data security strategy to protect themselves. Information security practitioners have to think and plan beyond existing protection capabilities that are aimed at preventing threats only. Today's cyber security strategies need to protect an organisations mission critical assets in a way that is:
‒ balanced, providing a mixture of informative, preventative and detective security controls that complement each other
‒ comprehensive, providing protection before, during and after threat events materialise into security incidents
‒ end-to-end, covering the complete information life cycle.
This will enable organisations to match the protection provided with the sophistication of threats to such mission critical information assets. This webinar will look at past and present models and share ideas on how organisations can ‘future proof’ their strategies to combat next generation threats.
In particular in this webinar, Nick Frost, Principal Consultant at the ISF will discuss what actions can be taken to identify your most critical information assets, and how a modern day cyber security model needs to focus on prevention and detection of a data breach, and how to respond to a breach in order to reduce damage to brand and reputation.
