Technical communicators around the globe use the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) to help them create structured, semantically rich, topic-based technical documentation designed for reuse. The benefits of DITA, including content reuse, are limited to content teams who use XML editing tools. Content creators working with Microsoft Office tools cannot reuse DITA content easily, so content silos coalesce around the tools that content teams use.
It’s one thing to understand the value of content reuse. It’s another to find a solution that defeats tool-driven content silos so that teams who don’t have access to—or knowledge of—XML editing tools are able to effectively reuse and repurpose DITA content. Attend this free, one-hour Content Wrangler webinar, brought to you by the content management gurus at Astoria Software, to learn how technical content teams are sharing and repurposing DITA content with team members who create content using Microsoft Office software.
One of the biggest obstacles to IoT adoption is security. Our recent survey found 65% of consumers are concerned about hackers controlling IoT devices and 60% worry about their data being stolen.

The FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) performs an essential public health task by making sure that safe and effective drugs are available to improve the health of people in the United States. CDER's primary mission is to promote and protect public health by ensuring availability of safe and effective drugs of high quality throughout the entire drug life cycle. The Center oversees the research, development, manufacture and marketing of drugs.
In order for the FDA to best adapt to the ongoing rapid changes in the drug regulatory environment, driven by scientific innovation, globalization, the increasing complexity of regulated products, new legal authorities and additional user fee programs, CDER initiated a major effort five years ago to improve its ability to manage key regulatory data over the life of a drug and to better understand the global drug supply chain at a more granular level.
During this webinar, Shanthi Vigneshwaran, Computer Scientist at the Food and Drug Administration, will share how the CDER has created a 360 view of a drug’s lifecycle, from inception to product. This includes visibility of the global drug supply chain, product ingredients, suppliers, and facilities - bringing them into one trusted view – and empowering the agency to trace any potential harm, save lives, and respond to changes in supply and demand more quickly.
Join us to learn how it’s possible to:
• Gain visibility into a global supply chain across disparate locations and systems
• Address globalization and apply standards in data processes to ensure integrity
• Manage data across complex product lifecycles
The security challenges of companies large and small is changing. This is especially pronounced in the access management space as IT admins and CISOs are faced with more identities and devices across a growing number of cloud applications. In our recent survey, we found 72% of respondents found cloud access management tools as a solution to reducing the threat of large scale data breaches, while 62% highlighted the tools ability to help simplify the login process for their enterprise users.
In an organization, individuals dealing with security have different goals and objectives. Aligning them can be a challenge. We will look at the priorities of the user, IT teams and CISOs – where they are linked and where they diverge. To build effective risk-based access policies, you need to start with a living IAM strategy that takes into account geolocation, threats, unusual behavior and scenario based data. Using policy-based access management, internally and externally for example in the cloud, is helping enables aligning the different security teams in an organization and automate and simplify the log-in process for users as well. During the webinar attendees will walk away with an understanding of:
-Analyzing personas within your organizations security team to improve IAM solution implementations
-Things to consider when building your access management strategy
-Building risk-based access management policies across multiple applications or cloud environments

95% of companies have adopted cloud services but the 2018 Global Cloud Data Security Survey found there is a wide gap in the level of security precautions applied by companies in different markets. Organizations admitted that on average, only two-fifths (40%) of the data stored in the cloud is secured with encryption and key management solutions. This is disturbing since only a quarter (25%) of IT and IT security practitioners revealed they are very confident they know all the cloud services their business is using,
The reality is cloud creates challenges in knowing where your data resides and what or who has access to it. In 2018, breaches like Uber and Accenture occurred because of improperly configured security for web and cloud applications that were connected to a company’s network. A major catalyst to address this is upcoming regulations and compliance, which are trying to catch up with cloud adoption. Over the next few years, companies will be faced with more complicated and intricate auditing to demonstrate security and privacy best efforts in the cloud.
During this webinar, Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute, and Jason Hart, CTO of Data Protection, will walk attendees through the research methodology, key findings and how things have changed over the past couple of years. Join us to learn more about:

Digitising Customer Onboarding: How to improve the customer experience without compromising on compliance and risk
Today’s consumers, accustomed to receiving smart and convenient digital services from companies such as Uber, Apple and Amazon, and are beginning to demand personalised, interactive and immediate services from their banks.
A recent report revealed 42% of UK consumers have adopted FinTech services (EY 2017 FinTech Adoption Survey), so it’s no surprise banks want to adapt to the fast-moving digital marketplace where new and disruptive competitors are already circling. What’s stopping them though, is risk.
Creating an environment that drives the productivity, speed and compliance essential to sell financial services via digital channels is paramount to survival.
This webinar will explore how banks can digitise the customer onboarding process without compromising on risk, satisfying customers, regulators and shareholders alike.
Organizations with Microsoft environments, such as Azure or Office 365, are inclined to implement Microsoft’s native access management solutions (namely, Azure AD and AD FS).
