The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is less than a year away from taking effect with all businesses having to be compliant by May 25, 2018. It will be one of the biggest changes to data privacy law that organizations have seen in decades as it consolidates data privacy regulations across Europe, gives business guidelines on the collection of customer data and gives consumers control over their data.

The 2015 data breach at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) was a defining moment for the federal government, as it continues to reel from the colossal theft of personnel information affecting 21.5 million individuals. Join us for an insightful discussion to understand more about this massive cyberattack in our webinar, “Dissecting the OPM Breach. How Artificial Intelligence and Threat Hunting Removed the APT.”
During the webinar Thomas Pace, Director of Consulting Services at Cylance®, will walk you through the course of events that led up to the OPM breach, expose the motivation behind the attack, and project its probable long-term impacts on how the U.S. government evaluates its IT and security strategy.
Thomas will review the role Cylance played in responding to the breach by explaining the tools and processes that Cylance utilized to quickly detect and remove the malware from over 10,000 machines. You’ll also get an inside look at how the lessons learned can help your organization to better prepare against and prevent security vulnerabilities.
Register for the webinar to learn more about:
•The evolution of the threat landscape during the past two years
•The value of having incident response processes and products in place before an incident occurs
•The inefficiencies of legacy antivirus solutions
•The benefits of artificial intelligence-based malware detection
In this webinar we'll explore how to design and begin to measure the Account Journey by mapping out the end-to-end marketing and sales processes.
Specifically, we'll introduce the idea of an "Account Stage" and map out a few variations of an Account Lifecycle Model - ie how do we take a prospect from "Target Account" to "Customer"?
Once we've established an account lifecycle model driven by the Account Stage, we'll fully automate it by using information about the contacts and sales deals in the account. The Account Stage will serve as the high-level indicator of where the account is in the sales cycle, making it easier to evaluate the health of our sales pipeline overall.
Mapping out the Account LIfecycle will also improve marketing and sales alignment for Account Based Marketing orchestration and performance measurement.
We'll conclude the webinar by showing examples of how Account Based Marketing Attribution can be used to analyze the performance of the account lifecycle.

Data Management Platforms (DMPs) have helped marketers improve digital advertising in the last 10 years by providing easy access to 3rd party global audience segments, but smart marketers have realized that this isn’t enough.
Modern marketers are now looking for ways to incorporate 1st party data into their entire marketing strategy but the problem is that this data is frequently siloed and challenging to access/analyze fast enough to keep up with market demands.
The solution is a Customer Data Platform (CDP) which is a new system - recently recognized by Gartner - that works in harmony with existing marketing technology to connect internal 1st party data, with external 2nd or 3rd party data.
Join us for our webinar and you will learn:
- How to leverage your most valuable asset - 1st party data - to maximize your programmatic advertising impact.
- The common pitfalls of working only with 2nd and 3rd party data
- Gain a deep understanding why it’s crucial to unify 1st party data for holistic customer insights as well as activation.
- Why a Customer Data Platform is essential to integrate 1st party data with your Data Management Platform.
The Internet of Things is upon us. Vast amounts of big data are quickly approaching and network traffic, latency and bandwidth are at higher demands than ever. Storing, transmitting, and analyzing this data from IoT devices will require a secure and agile network architecture. Network failover and network security will be of the utmost importance.
How will these changes in demand and technologies have an impact on new standards and protocols? Will network communications between devices and the cloud be safe? Tune into this dynamic panel discussion with leading IoT and network experts for the state of IoT networks.

‘Why should my business pay for a tag management system (TMS) when there are free services available?’ That certainly is a valid question.
There are various free tag management options available in the market today. While a free TMS can be a viable option, it is important to understand that “free” does not always mean “without cost.” While tag management systems are sometimes viewed just as a tool used to fix technical issues, enterprise solutions have proven to be critical in driving data strategies forward, leading to incremental revenue lifts, risk mitigation and tremendous cost savings.
Join Adam Corey, VP Marketing at Tealium, for an informative discussion on the eight important ROI factors you should consider when choosing between a free tag management platform or an enterprise solution.

Ad campaign optimization has become essential for premium publishers to continue to thrive and stay competitive in today's fast paced environment. The challenge surrounding a majority of ad opt teams today is the lack of time and technical resources.

A majority of manufacturers in MPI’s recent survey are now making money off the IoT – a big change from just two years ago. But challenges remain. Many decision makers can’t access essential data: They can’t always get what they want. This growing digital divide means that improvements in operations, supply chain, logistics, and customer service are being delayed for some while others are benefiting. Webinar attendees will learn how their manufacturing peers benefit from IoT data today, what solutions, such as streaming analytics, are gaining traction, and where early adopters are seeing success.
In the developer world, measurement of code and infrastructure has long served as the “eyes” into system quality and performance. But, as our systems become more focused on microservices and “serverless” function-centric models, the paradigm of measuring the system by its code breaks down. The solution seems to come from looking at things from the user’s perspective and measuring and testing user outcomes. Find out how this shift is changing everything from monitoring to testing to system design.
As digital is changing everything, most enterprises are embracing the transformation to streamline processes at the pace of technology and remain relevant to customers. The transformation involves an end-to-end, systemic change enterprise-wide including interactions with customers, partners and employees.
