In regulated industries, such as Financial Services, Government and Healthcare, forms and signatures are critical components of enrolment and onboarding interactions. Yet most services still rely on forms and signatures that function poorly on mobile—the very place most consumers spend their time. Creating and updating high volumes of forms in a timely manner can also be a huge challenge.
Join us to learn how Adobe Experience Manager Forms and Adobe Sign can help transform complex forms-based transactions into streamlined and compliant experiences that accelerate business and deliver better customer service.
In this webinar, learn how to:
•Provide an end-to-end digital form filling and signing experience across any channel
•Integrate e-signatures across the document process with Adobe Sign and Adobe Experience Manager integration
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy, and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. Acknowledging identity threats like phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks, the GDPR applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of those residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
An excerpt from the GDPR describes authentication as ‘key to securing computer systems’ and as the first step ‘in using a remote service or facility, and performing access control’. The document also outlines various GDPR-compliant authentication solutions, such as smart card, OTP push apps, and FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F).
Yubico’s enterprise solution - the YubiKey - combines support for OpenPGP (an open standard for signing and encryption), FIDO U2F (a protocol that works with an unlimited number of applications), and smart card / PIV (a standard that enables RSA or ECC sign/encrypt operations using a private key stored on the device) all in one multi-protocol authentication device. This makes it a strong and flexible solution for companies required to comply with GDPR. Attend this webcast and learn:
•How GDPR will impact the way organizations worldwide store and access the personal information of EU citizens
•How to leverage open standards to achieve GDPR compliance for strong authentication
•How a multi-protocol authentication device protects organizations from phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks

Part 1 of this two-webinar series looked at the strategic challenges facing organisations using SAP following the launch of SA/Hana. This part 2 focuses instead on the departmental challenges, and what these developments might mean for operational reporting. In many organisation today, the reality of the reporting environment might means that experienced business users spend 80% of their day manipulating data rather than interpreting it. So, while your CFO might quite rightly be looking at S4/Hana and digitalisation, we would encourage businesses to also Fix Today’s Problems Today, as the real-time access to data discussed in this webinar will not only support but accelerate your path to digitalisation.
On August 1, news of a bitcoin "hard fork" broke the cryptocurrency world. Traders were flung into uncertainty and many started wondering about the new Bitcoin Cash and what it means for the market.
Should you invest in Bitcoin Cash? Why fork Bitcoin rather than just using a pre-existing cryptocurrency? Will there be more drastic price changes in the different cryptocurrencies? Will the value of bitcoin be diluted? What comes next?
Join this session where an expert panel of bitcoin investors, engineers and entrepreneurs will discuss what you need to know about the bitcoin fork, the current situation of the market, the impacts of the hard fork, and their predictions for the future.
They will also take audience questions live so make sure to tune in and have your questions ready.

The 2017 Verizon Data Breach Report found that 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged stolen and/or weak passwords last year. Organizations looking for strong authentication solutions often face a trade-off between security and simplicity.
Smart card and FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) are two of the strongest authentication solutions for protecting your entire organization, and securing the information they access. Employees, vendors, partners, and customers all need strong authentication for workstation login, access to web applications, remote access to services, and privileged system access. During this webinar, Yubico’s VP of Solutions Jerrod Chong will share:
• A comparison of enterprise authentication techniques, including username/password, one-time password, mobile push, smart card, and FIDO U2F
• Why smart card and FIDO U2F are the strongest authentication solutions available today
• How a single hardware authentication device combining smart card and FIDO U2F authentication can protect your entire organization from phishing, malware, and man-in-the-middle attacks
Nine of the top 10 tech companies, including Google, Facebook, and Salesforce.com, use Yubico’s authentication solutions to protect all of their employees from phishing, man-in-the-middle, and malware attacks. Yubico’s enterprise-wide solution, the YubiKey, combines both smart card and FIDO U2F capabilities in a single hardware-based authentication device.
Suffice it to say that traditional email archiving is a mature technology category. However, more firms are looking at archiving today for the first time as their ‘keep everything forever’ strategies have failed. Others are motivated by a move to Office365, while some are looking for new approaches to address the growing challenges of social media, instant messaging, and rich media communications channels that are growing organically inside their firms.
Whatever the driver, archiving remains misunderstood by many – both within IT and across business units. Join us and our guest Bill Tolson from Archive360 as we explore and attempt to clarify the top 5 archiving myths:
• Archiving is primarily for email storage;
• Archiving is only necessary for regulated firms;
• Archiving leads to the risk of over-preservation;
• Cloud archiving is more expensive and less secure than traditional on-premises archiving;
• End-users don’t benefit from Archiving
We’ll wrap up with a brief overview of how Actiance and Archive360 are enabling organizations to address these myths and achieve their information governance objectives.

All completed in hours vs the weeks which is the current norm.
Forget Oracle, IBM or any of the other big-name, publicly traded acquirers that – until now --have always set the tone in the tech M&A market. If a tech deal printed in 2017, the buyer is more likely a private equity firm than any of the well-known serial acquirers on the US stock market. This is the first time in the history of the multibillion-dollar tech M&A market that financial acquirers have been busier than these strategic acquirers. To understand how the ever-growing influence of buyout shops is reshaping the tech industry, join 451 Research for an hour-long webinar on Thursday, Sept. 7 2017.
