With traditional safe-haven assets paying skimpy (even negative) yields, many investors realize that they may have to move up the risk curve to meet their long-term needs. But the bouts of volatility that have plagued equity markets can seem too risky to take on. We believe that efforts to not lose money can be harnessed to grow capital over time.

This presentation is an overview of “Making Intelligence Work,” a training program offered by the Cyber Intelligence Defence Centre. When correctly employed, intelligence provides direction for long-term planning (strategic intelligence), direction in the current cyber battlefield (operational intelligence) as well as direct support to defend against current attacks (tactical intelligence). This guidance is developed in the executive suite and is deployed into the organization. The program provides executives with the tools to deploy and utilize intelligence in their organizations.

Cyber space is composed of, and dependent on, supply chains. Our hardware and software are created in multiple locations by a multitude of suppliers and vendors. A single PC board may contain chips from many different nations, each with their own companies and manufacturing plant. Software is highly dependent on updates, which we receive mostly automatically and is directly incorporated in the software we depend on daily.
We, as a society are getting more skilled at protecting our technology from cyber-attack by hardening our network perimeters, improving anti-virus/malware tools and encrypting everything we can. The one thing we DO NOT do is evaluate what our cyber supply chain(s) are. We understand their importance to our daily tasks, to our lifestyles, and to our incomes. We need to looking into what our supply chains really are, understand their functionality and investigate ways to begin protecting them.
• Understand the basic nature of cyber supply chains
• Gain insight into cyber supply chain vulnerabilities
• Learn how to begin protecting our cyber supply chains

Heavy industry was first to arrive at the IoT party, quickly recognizing the potential to augment existing processes and establish new protocols. As a result, organizations that embraced the industrial internet of things (IIoT) have been at the forefront of fine-tuning applications and establishing best practices. And while many of those practices have turned out to be impactful, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that the opportunity is much bigger with predictive analytics.
We’ve entered a perfect storm where the falling costs of capturing, processing and analyzing data coincide with the explosion of data streams generated by millions of pieces of connected equipment, devices and systems. And the same technology that created the perfect storm has empowered customers with near-instant data and instantaneous engagement with each other and also with your organization. So the opportunities extend beyond tactical process improvements and have become both strategic and enterprise-wide.
Recognizing and capitalizing on the opportunities requires an evolution of skills and mindset, made possible with key technology relationships. The Industrial IoT collaboration between SAS and Intel enables organizations to capture, process and analyze data. The end result is the ability to evolve their strategic advantage and realize the full value of their IIoT data.
Tune in to this webinar to gain insights and best practices for evolving the industrial IoT into strategic advantage for your organization.
