A global ‘stock-take’ on where we’re at regarding environmental reporting
Post the TCFD report and evolving country and EU regulatory moves: what are investors actually expected to do now on assessing and communicating climate risk exposure?
• A changing world of compliance
The world of climate reporting is moving fast and investors need to understand what their responsibilities are in multiple jurisdictions and how climate data can best serve them.
• Hard vs soft law
Countries including France, Sweden, Japan, Switzerland and the US state of California have introduced a variety of hard and soft laws. TCFD is voluntary and the EU’s plans look likely to be so also: what’s an investor supposed to do?
• How to?
Investors need guidance and takeaways for action.
• Trump v the States?
What does the evolution mean for US investors in the light of the US government’s withdrawal from Paris and California and other states’ counter moves?
• What’s expected versus what’s possible?
Investor leadership in times of compliance requirements.

Charged with developing recommendations to accelerate the adoption of cloud technologies in the U.S. Government and commercial space, the Commission on the Leadership Opportunity in U.S. Deployment of the Cloud (CLOUD2) has completed its 3-month study - identifying potential barriers, recommending actionable solutions, and outlining the keys to successfully transitioning to the Cloud.
Please join us on Wednesday November 9th with Wyatt Starnes, CLOUD2 Commissioner and Vice President Advanced Concepts at Harris Corporation, at Jim Ganthier, Vice President ISS Marketing at HP as they present CLOUD2 Presidential Commission - Critical Recommendations for Using Cloud Computing to Make Your Business More Competitive.
We will review the Commission's findings and discuss how the Harris Trusted Enterprise Cloud, built on HP Converged Infrastructure, builds upon its recommendations. Plus, all attendees will receive our CLOUD2 Checklist.
We look forward to seeing you there.
There’s no doubt that cyber attacks cause real financial harm to businesses. Money can be stolen, business operations disrupted. Cyber theft can provide international competitors with years worth of valuable intellectual property or trade secrets virtually overnight, jeopardizing current and future market opportunities. Cyber attacks can seriously damage an organization’s reputation with customers and result in legal liability for the company, executives, and board members.
As companies race to protect themselves, how do investors know if the organizations they are investing in are secure?
Join Jacob Olcott, VP at BitSight, and Nell Minow, corporate governance expert and co-founder of Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), for a discussion of key issues, including:
-How investors assess cybersecurity in the M&A diligence process
-What institutional shareholders want to know about cyber risks to their investments
-How shareholders can meaningfully engage with companies on cybersecurity
More and more organisations are turning to cloud computing to solve their biggest technology and business challenges. By this stage, most of us are aware of the many benefits cloud has to offer: lower hardware and IT costs, ease of management and increased agility, to name a few. Yet when it comes to security, cloud is not a silver bullet. In fact, according to the Cloud Security Alliance, security is cited as the number one barrier to adoption of cloud services among organisations.
During this webcast, Mark Wood, Director of Product Management at Dell SecureWorks, will discuss some of the prevalent security risks which exist when moving to the cloud and how this affects the traditional approach to security.
This webcast will address the following key themes:
•The security impact of different cloud models and minimising risk in a multi-tenant environment
•Sharing the security burden and establishing an effective relationship with your cloud provider.
•Staying one step ahead of the evolving compliance landscape.
