- InnoSec is the winner of the EU commission Horizon 2020 grant based on its innovation in GDPR and cyber risk -
GDPR is an urgent issue that has companies scrambling to be compliant by May of 2018. Any organization that processes EU citizen data is in scope and the penalties are severe.
Alignment with the requirements can reduce the chances of triggering a Data Protection Authority (DPA) to investigate a company’s privacy practices after the GDPR takes effect in May 2018. DPAs can impose a fine on companies of up to 4% of annual global revenues for egregious violations of the GDPR. Member states can also add to these fines. The Netherlands, for instance, has more than doubled its own fining capacity to 10% of annual revenues. European privacy advocates are pressuring DPAs to fully exercise these new powers after May 2018.To manage this risk, multinationals should have a means to demonstrate alignment with the GDPR requirements and communication of this program with DPAs that have jurisdiction over their major European operations.
InnoSec’s GDPR solution provides privacy impact and risk assessments which measure the confidentiality and integrity of the system and the risk associated to it meeting articles 1,2, 5, 32, 35 and 36. Additionally, we provide a readiness gap analysis for managing, planning and budgeting for GDPR.
Most e-commerce, educational and multi-national organizations process EU citizen data and are in scope for GDPR. Moreover, most organizations are not ready according to Gartner and his means the race to the finish line requires as much automation as you can afford. InnoSec provides a means for companies to save money and time with their GDPR assessment and gap analysis offering.. Our GDPR offering automates the assessment process and provides a gap analysis readiness feature, that also ensures that organizations can plan, budget and manage their GDPR program.
Nicola Franchetto will discuss in a practical and business oriented way, the new provisions of the GDPR and how the PLA Code of Conduct supports compliance with the forthcoming EU Data Protection Legislation. More precisely, Franchetto will highlight the true privacy compliance “game changers” introduced by the GDPR and offer the audience practical inputs on how to set up a sound and effective corporate Data Protection Compliance Programme, which will also include having a PLA in place with Cloud Service Providers.
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
5G is on its way. It may be closer to 2019-2020 for some but for others, it may be 2023-2025 before it materializes. In all the countries that are frontrunners of 5G in Asia-Pacific, 5G is benefiting from local government support coupled with local demand or at least the potential for demand for 5G services. The demand may be incentive or market driven.
The market for 5G is expected to have reached $4.50 billion by 2022 with 280.4 million 5G subscriptions. The implementation timeline for MNOs will vary from country to country, albeit not as widely as it was with 3G or 4G. Frost and Sullivan expects that government support for 5G in populous countries such as China and India and new business models that will emerge out of the trials by MNOs at the upcoming Olympics will support high service revenue growth at CAGR of 315.1% from 2019 to 2022.
5G will trigger a quicker transition to distributed, cloud native networks that leverage on NFV, SDN, and MEC to reduce cost to serve and improve on efficiency and profitability for MNOs. Further, with 5G offering latency below 1ms and larger bandwidths, mobile networks can gain an edge over fibre networks and regain competitiveness.
If you have any client that has an interest in gaining an in depth understanding of 5G developments in Asia Pacific, this study will help address questions such as:
•How will 5G impact industry?
•What are the market challenges and opportunities?
•What are the key drivers for growth?
•How big will the market be for 5G by 2022?

Combating Data Breaches: Proactive Defence during a Digital Transformation
Join Herjavec Group and Thales and gain a deeper understanding into how you can review your data security in an efficient and effective way to enable your organisation to focus on the truly challenging areas of data security and compliance.
Sensitive data continues to make it into a broader set of environments, including cloud deployments, big data platforms, virtualised systems, and more. The policies and regulatory mandates in effect continue to grow more stringent. At the same time, these groups have to guard against more sophisticated cyber-attacks, and the continuous threats posed by users that have stolen privileged user credentials.
To adapt to these expanding demands, IT and security professionals have to leverage technologies that offer a strong mix of security, implementation flexibility, and operational efficiency.
Topics covered during the webinar:
Complex and sophisticated data threat landscape
GDPR at a glance
Digital transformation ambitions and challenges
Why adopt a data encryption strategy?
Focus on how encryption and key management solutions can help you comply, secure and keep control of your data
This introduction is aimed at those within your organisation looking to gain an insight into data protection and the potential challenges that your organisation could face.
The need to embrace digital transformation in all possible scenarios is paramount to bring efficiencies and improve current business processes. The challenges of real-time data processing, high network speeds and latency can be overcome by using ICT technologies, i.e., Mobile Edge Computing/Fog Computing. These computing technologies bring compute and storage capabilities to the edge of the network and enable real-time and context-based business applications. All industry verticals can find relevant application areas that can benefit from computing at the edge of the network.
If you haven’t already, we recommend you listen to the first webinar in this series, the 9-minute overview by our SVP and GM Raffi Margaliot as he introduces the three core disruptions facing application delivery teams today.
The cloud changes two main aspects of application delivery. Firstly, cloud and SaaS models change how applications are built and tested, moving from custom development to composites of on-premises and cloud APIs; and secondly, cloud economics drive development, testing, and lifecycle management tool purchase preference towards SaaS and Cloud utility models. This webinar will explore how taking the time and effort to evaluate the benefits of hybrid-cloud development and testing will ultimately pay off major dividends in cost and agility.
Does the native message encryption meet your compliance and ease-of-use needs? This short 60 second video reviews how DataMotion SecureMail works with Office 365 to enhance its encryption capabilities.
Enterprise systems are failing today’s employees because they are hard to use, they trap data in silos, they have a poor user experience, and they offer limited mobile support. Therefore, it is no surprise that a Forrester Research study showed that 76% of employees believe it takes too long to complete tasks in their systems and another 62% delay completing tasks that require multiple systems. In short, this means your business has delays.
On the flip side, consumer applications keep getting better and better – these apps are simple, enable quick task completion, are accessible from anywhere, and offer a great user experience. Why can’t enterprise systems be as easy to use as consumer apps? It turns out, they can be. Modern portals are the next generation digital workplace tools that push data and key actions to employees from their systems so they can more effectively do their jobs.
Join this webinar to learn how easy it is to:
•Remove system bottlenecks, reduce helpdesk calls, decrease software spending, enable smart decision-making, and streamline workflows with consumer-like business apps.
•Build smart, event-driven micro apps that sit on top of your existing systems and push actionable insights and tasks to employees on any device, intranet, or messenger.
•Triple the productivity of your workforce with a modern portal that surfaces personalized and relevant tasks and information from all your systems.
IT planners have far more options as to where to run their workloads than ever before. On-premises data centers, co-location facilities and managed services providers are now joined by hybrid multi-clouds – a combination of Software-, Infrastructure- and Platform-as-a-Service (SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS) execution venues. All have unique operational, performance and economic characteristics that need to be considered when deploying workloads.
In this Webinar Carl Lehmann, Principal Analyst with 451 Research, and Don Davis, Technology Director for Iron Mountain’s Data Center business will discuss how industry leading enterprises determine the best execution venues for their workloads by addressing:
•The market and technology trends that influence workload, data center and cloud strategy
•How to evaluate the characteristics of various workloads and execution venues
•How to manage workloads across on-premises and off-premises ecosystems
Attendees will learn how to formulate an IT strategy that can be used to guide the decision criteria needed for placing workloads on their best execution venues, and enable the migration and ongoing management of workloads across a hybrid multi-cloud enterprise architecture.
Creating a seamless connected environment that supports smart community citizen services, streamlines operations, supports economic development is already a challenge for community officials. There are many different needs and directions to begin the conversion to an “intelligent” environment. Communities are also planning and building not just for current needs, but also for future connectivity infrastructure that will be used by autonomous vehicles, smart buildings, connected homes, AR/VR, eRetail, eHealthcare, smartgrid and more.
This webcast will discuss such questions as:
> What issues are city officials prioritizing for resolution through smart community applications?
> How are communities planning for and deploying small cell infrastructure?
> Which departments are involved in communications infrastructure?
> How can suppliers navigate the multiple departments involved in decision making?
> What business models are cities negotiating with their technology product partners?
> What are some of the lessons learned from cities that you can translate into your own business offering?

The explosion of cloud-based applications in the enterprise is making IT and security professionals rethink their cloud identity management strategy. By default, every cloud user creates an average of 17 cloud identities. But catering to 17 different user stores per employee or partner is simply not scalable from an administration perspective. And as if IT’s time is not precious enough, password resets account for 20% of helpdesk tickets. This adds to the compliance and security risks associated with cloud-based applications, which by default require only weak static passwords and offer no central point of management across disparate cloud-based services.
Join Stephen Allen, Gemalto Product Manager for Authentication and Access Management, and learn how deploying an Identity Provider enables:
•Cloud Single Sign-On for easy access to cloud apps
•Regulatory compliance with standards such as PCI DSS
•Reduced identity lifecycle overheads
•Centralized management of cloud access policies
•Increased security with step-up authentication

Do your employees struggle to access and analyze information that sits across multiple systems? Do they delay completing tasks that require they login to yet another system? Employees are now pushing back against legacy systems – both on-premises and SaaS – and demanding more modern applications to complete their work. Unfortunately, you have spent millions of dollars on software and replacing them is not an option. The question: how do you meet employee expectations for more user-friendly tools without costly upgrades or throwing out your existing systems? Answer: a modern portal.
Sapho’s modern portal surfaces personalized and relevant tasks and data to employees using micro apps. Sapho micro apps are built by IT on top of your existing systems using a simple micro app builder and pre-built templates. These micro apps – available on any device, intranet, or messenger app – provide employees with proactive notifications about interesting system data, actions that need to be completed, and changes in business data that require attention. With Sapho, employees can complete work faster and make better decisions, improving their overall productivity and effectiveness.
In this webinar, we will show you how easy it is to build a modern portal that:
- Connects to your existing systems with pre-built connectors for systems such as SAP, Oracle, Concur, Salesforce, or ServiceNow
- Surfaces event-driven micro apps, that you can build in just 15 minutes to deliver simplified workflows and data access
- Is accessible by employees from any device, intranet, or messenger allowing them to complete actions and review information from anywhere
Fraud detection is a classic adversarial analytics challenge: As soon as an automated system successfully learns to stop one scheme, fraudsters move on to attack another way. Each scheme requires looking for different signals (i.e. features) to catch; is relatively rare (one in millions for finance or e-commerce); and may take months to investigate a single case (in healthcare or tax, for example) – making quality training data scarce.
This talk will cover a code walk-through, the key lessons learned while building such real-world software systems over the past few years. We'll look for fraud signals in public email datasets, using IPython and popular open-source libraries (scikit-learn, statsmodel, nltk, etc.) for data science and Apache Spark as the compute engine for scalable parallel processing.
David will iteratively build a machine-learned hybrid model – combining features from different data sources and algorithmic approaches, to catch diverse aspects of suspect behavior:
- Natural language processing: finding keywords in relevant context within unstructured text
- Statistical NLP: sentiment analysis via supervised machine learning
- Time series analysis: understanding daily/weekly cycles and changes in habitual behavior
- Graph analysis: finding actions outside the usual or expected network of people
- Heuristic rules: finding suspect actions based on past schemes or external datasets
- Topic modeling: highlighting use of keywords outside an expected context
- Anomaly detection: Fully unsupervised ranking of unusual behavior
Apache Spark is used to run these models at scale – in batch mode for model training and with Spark Streaming for production use. We’ll discuss the data model, computation, and feedback workflows, as well as some tools and libraries built on top of the open-source components to enable faster experimentation, optimization, and productization of the models.
There has been a flood of publicity around big data, data processing, and the role of predictive analytics in businesses of the future.
As business operators how do we get access to these valuable business insights, even when there is not a data analyst around to walk us through their results?
- Should your software emulate a data scientist?
- Learn about the power of data visualizations.
- Learn about creating value from disperse data sets.

VR has sprouted a lot of startups, but not a whole lot of revenue yet. Yet the theory is that where there’s investment, there’s got to be fire. In this new wave of VR technology, refined console headsets are being set loose in the world, and mobile VR and mobile 360 are growing more popular with consumers. So it’s time to start thinking about a monetization strategy.
In mobile, for instance, freemium with a combination of ads and in-app purchases is the powerhouse that generates over 95 percent of revenues. For consoles, downloadable and extended content plus microtransactions are the big money makers. But virtual reality is an entirely new way of interacting with content. Will consumers be willing to stand through advertisements? Will they trust a virtual reality payment method, or is the technology too new to engender consumer confidence?
In this VB LIve event, you’ll learn about:
