    Checking a Box is Not Enough : Handling Lawful Consent in a Post-GDPR World
    Simon Hill, Chief Legal and Compliance Officer, Certes Networks Recorded: May 22 2019 41 mins
    Handling lawful consent in GDPR is one area that can be especially tricky. Companies need to be particularly aware of new rights for consumers and notification requirements as these types of regulated responsibilities are not just limited to Europe. Any enterprise that provides a service whereby personal data is processed, are impacted by GDPR requirements.

    So, companies may think they have obtained sufficient consent regarding personal data and transparency only to find out that they have failed to obtain valid consent.

    In this interactive webinar, Certes Networks will cover:

    • What Did We Learn in 2018?
    • What is Important in 2019?
    • Getting Back to Basics
    • The Top Three Keys to Sufficient Consent
    • Case Studies

  • The right medicine: reducing cost and carbon in the NHS
    The right medicine: reducing cost and carbon in the NHS
    Lorcan Anglin, Inenco Mark Winn, Inenco Recorded: May 16 2019 59 mins
    Speakers:
    Lorcan Anglin, Head of Solutions at Inenco
    Mark Winn, Lead Consultant, Public Sector at Inenco

    How can a better approach to energy management help NHS organisations to deliver the Ten Point Efficiency Plan?

    Bottom lines in NHS Trusts take a direct hit every time energy costs rise, forcing organisations to direct an already-stretched budget away from front line service delivery. Many choose to fix their energy prices annually, but taking a different approach to procurement can provide greater budget certainty and create opportunities to better control energy price inflation. Looking afresh at energy consumption can also unearth real optimization opportunities and the chance to control overall costs.

    Using real life case studies and practical advice, this webinar will focus on delivering both better energy procurement and an holistic approach to energy optimisation. Our industry experts will address:

    1.How differing approaches to procurement strategies can achieve better outcomes and reduce the risk of annual price variations and provide greater budget certainty
    2.Taking a shorter-term focus on invoice validation to remove the need for retrospective review and recovery, keeping much needed resources available for vital frontline services within financial year
    3.What opportunities exist to review technology and processes that will optimise energy consumption to both reduce cost and help achieve 2020 carbon reduction targets
    4.Five essential steps for identifying saving opportunities, prioritising them and developing investment cases based on short pay-back periods.

  • Capitalising from clean energy: finding the right on-site solution
    Capitalising from clean energy: finding the right on-site solution
    Stuart Reid, Managing Director (Projects), Mark Tarry, Chief Financial Officer Recorded: Mar 19 2019 59 mins
    On site energy centres can provide long-term cost and carbon savings, sheltering large energy users from rising energy costs and boosting sustainability through low carbon generation. Industrial sites and commercial property infrastructure are playing an increasing role in the decentralised energy system but technology is rapidly evolving, and no one solution suits all users. Businesses face a myriad of choices, from on-site heat and power generation and waste heat recovery to peaking plant to provide export services.

    In this webinar, Stuart Reid and Mark Tarry from AMP Clean Energy will explain how businesses can still benefit from the transition to decentralised energy, despite a changing subsidy environment.

    The webinar will consider what options are available to businesses looking to explore a switch to on-site generation, from choosing the best low carbon technology for your site’s needs to overcoming financial obstacles to secure investment.

    You’ll also hear real-life examples of how the installation of an on-site peaking plant is helping a commercial property developer attract new tenants and how award-winning British grower Villa Nursery’s CHP plant has reduced their gas spend by £200,000 per annum, and the rewards they have reaped since its installation in 2017.

    About AMP Clean Energy

    Sourcing and Vendor Management – A Critical Component of Digital Strategy
    Aaron Polikaitis, VP, Vendor Sourcing & Management, IDC's IT Executive Program Recorded: Feb 28 2019 36 mins
    CIOs, CPOs and business unit leaders overwhelmingly agree that technology sourcing and procurement is critical for digital transformation and legacy system modernization. Nevertheless, recent IDC research confirms that technology sourcing and procurement organizations are challenged to deliver what their businesses require. IT and line of business executives report of their procurement organizations that:
    • 54% do not understand business needs
    • 62% are undermined by shadow procurement
    • Only 10% work effectively within cross-functional teams

    Procurement organizations have a choice of transforming themselves or watching other enterprise organizations assume the responsibility for sourcing the technology that supports key business initiatives. In this IDC web conference, we will identify the top challenges identified by Procurement, IT, and LOB executives, and discuss strategies for transforming procurement organizations from tactical administrative centers to strategic sourcing partners for the enterprise.

    Tyler Moffitt, Sr. Threat Research Analyst, Webroot Jun 18 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Recent years has seen a move towards more targeted attacks, especially in the realm of ransomware. Attackers are no longer trying to infect the globe, choosing instead to carefully select targets to increase their chances of success and maximise payouts.

    SMBs find themselves in the crosshairs of these attacks. Their defense and contingency plans often leave them vulnerable to ransomware, information theft, and other attacks.

    Is your organisation a soft target? Automated processes can often determine this in a matter of minutes, and cybercriminals are aware.

    Sue Gilkes, CompTIA Faculty, CompTIA Aug 1 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Small businesses are rightly described as the lifeblood of the global economy. This isn’t hyperbole, as SMBs account for the vast majority of business entities while serving as a key driver of job growth and innovation. Success as a small business owner means overcoming challenges on many fronts, but also embracing new opportunities in technology and business.

    CompTIA’s latest research explores the business relevance of technology to SMBs and the factors affecting their perceptions, decisions, and investments in established and emerging technologies. We also explore the professional services industry, taking a look at their decision to offer technology to their own customers.
  • HTTPS: SSL Certificates and Phishing
    HTTPS: SSL Certificates and Phishing
    Kelvin Murray, Sr. Threat Research Analyst, Webroot Aug 20 2019 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    When we see HTTPS at the beginning of a URL, or the accompanying lock icon in our browser’s address bar, we tend to think it means we’re safe from harm. But HTTPS isn’t really about security. It’s about privacy. That lock icon simply means any information we transmit on that site is encrypted. It makes no guarantees the destination itself is safe.

    Cybercriminals know users are trained to look for the lock icon in the address bar, and have been working hard to take advantage of that trust.

    Join our 30-minute webinar to learn more about the tradeoffs between privacy and security, and discover why HTTPS may not really be as secure as we think.
