  • Office 365 As A Content Services Hub? Seriously!
    Office 365 As A Content Services Hub? Seriously! Steffen Frederiksen Recorded: Mar 15 2018 61 mins
    Do you have Office 365 in your organization? You may not realize it, but you already have the perfect solution for delivering the right information to the right people, at the right time, in the right format and language–and on the device of their choosing.

    Most content services hubs are expensive and complicated. Office 365 is an affordable, cloud-based, scalable platform that allows you to build content for a future of AI, machine-learning, chatbots, and machine-to-machine communication. It enables everyone, whether experienced in content architectures like DITA and XML or not, to use Microsoft Word and other familiar tools to create and share content in real time. Gartner recognized Microsoft as a leader in the Content Management Platform Magic Quadrant in 2017. Find out why!

    Join our special guest host, Paul Perrotta, and our special guest, Steffen Frederiksen, for this free, one-hour webinar, and learn exactly why and how Office 365 is a great platform for authoring, managing, and delivering the content of the future. Attendees will also learn the benefits that come with using it, as well as be taken through a specific use case in financial services.


    Since 1989, Steffen Frederiksen has been working with the creation, management, and distribution of structured, reusable business content. This work includes methods, software tools, training workshops and CMS solutions. He has managed the training of more than 200,000 writers around the globe, primarily in the financial services, pharma, and other regulated industries.

    While working for Information Mapping, Steffen developed the concept of “object-oriented information” as well as the MOM (Mapping Object Model) XML DTDs – some of the foundation of the DITA standard. With the objective of bringing the power of structured content to everyone, he founded DitaExchange in 2001 and developed its Dx4 software, which combines the DITA standard, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office.

  • Ponemon Research 2017 Trends in Cloud Security: Cloud & Compliance Compatible?
    Ponemon Research 2017 Trends in Cloud Security: Cloud & Compliance Compatible? Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute and Jason Hart, CTO office for data protection Recorded: Feb 27 2018 60 mins
    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:
    -2018 Global Cloud Data Security Findings
    -Compliance and cloud security: How will this work?
    -A shift in the budget: Where is IT spending their money?
    -Country breakdown of IT cloud security: Who is doing the best?
    -What can you do to secure the cloud and comply with regulations?

    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.

    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.
