The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is federal law that regulates employer-sponsored health and welfare plans. While the law is complex, the government agencies tasked with enforcing its provisions ensure complete compliance through the use of intensive plan investigations and the administration of significant financial penalties. An ERISA gap assessment can serve as a plan sponsor’s first line of defense against the costly and burdensome consequences of non-compliance, and can provide the added benefit of optimal plan administration.
This presentation will cover the nuts and bolts of ERISA, how and when to conduct a gap assessment, and how to address areas of compliance weakness.

While most parents would be delighted if their offspring wanted to become an accountant, lawyer or even an actuary, they may be less encouraging if their son or daughter said they wanted to be a hacker. This is the negative manifestation of working in the cyber security industry that is often portrayed in the media. The reality is very different, with careers in cyber security providing fantastic opportunities that are hugely varied, really challenging and help to do good for society.
Structured career paths provide an opportunity to progress quickly with jobs in large audit and accountancy firms through to small specialist boutique start-ups, as well as the chance for international work and creating new businesses. In addition, the whole industry is very diverse and is looking for people with a very wide range of talents.
The problem is how do we communicate this to people who may be interested in the industry? Just as important for young people, how do we get to the influencers; their parents and their careers advisors to understand what an exciting place the cyber security industry is to work in and what they can expect in terms of the types of company they could work for and their salary expectations.
The problem can be partially solved through education, information and support from businesses working together with a consistent message designed to encourage the very best people into the industry.
In this presentation, Ian Glover from CREST will look at the challenges of attracting the brightest young people into careers that traditionally have an image problem and providing a strong career path once they are in. In particular, he will focus on the importance of properly-run internships and Government funded initiatives to educate and inform.

More and more organizations are relying on the use of contingent and project-based labor to complement their permanent workforce. The increased use has stemmed from a variety of factors including economic uncertainty, skill shortages, and individuals choosing to enter the workforce through alternative methods. With the upward trend of contingent and project-based labor usage and regulatory changes across the globe, it is imperative that organizations have full visibility into all classifications of their workforce.
This webcast will explore the evolution of Vendor Management Systems (VMS) and current trends associated with the Vendor Management System. Simply put, VMS is the software that automates the hiring process of contract workers. It is often an Internet-enabled, Web-based application that helps to manage and procure staffing services from requisition to billing and reviewing. Most VMS tools are delivered through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. VMS tools provide significant improvements in reporting and analytics capabilities that far outperform manual systems and processes. VMS tools are typically operated externally by an MSP (managed service provider), by the VOP (vendor on premise) or internally within an organization by a VMO (vendor management office).
A VMS is implemented to reduce costs, enforce policy and improve the quality of contingent and project based labor programs. You will discover how the workforce is changing across the board in terms of demographics, headcount, strategy, and cost management. Learn how your contingent labor can be divided into four key areas to better help manage your workforce. In this webcast, you will review the different improvement models and discuss how to begin building a business case.
