    • Despite increasing cloud adoption in IT departments, many organizations are still concerned with data security. Those concerns are amplified by the loss of physical control over data and the potential for mismanagement of those assets when migrating to the cloud. As a result, this is often the top barrier to cloud deployment. However, with cloud innovations growing exponentially, the new wave of security solutions is breaking down those barriers.

      In this webinar, Alert Logic cyber security evangelist, Paul Fletcher, will provide you with insight on how to get over hybrid cloud security hurdles and discuss:

      • Common misconceptions surrounding hybrid cloud security
      • Key strategies to secure a hybrid cloud environment
      • Solutions to security threats within multiple hybrid cloud environments

He was charged with fraud and served several years in a Singapore prison.

      Leeson will share his personal story and critical insights on the safeguards and practices needed for an increasingly-globalised fraud landscape, particularly in China and wider Asia where fraud and cybercrime is on the rise. Additional points for discussion will be based on – but not limited to – the following:

      •Emerging trends and disruptions transforming the risk environment
      •Developments in implementing sound managerial, financial, IT software, systems and processes to avoid financial mismanagement

    • The Challenges of Holding Corporate America Accountable The Challenges of Holding Corporate America Accountable Lynn Turner, David Anders, Sean Coffey, Chad Johnson Recorded: Oct 4 2011 6:00 pm UTC 64 mins
    • Nearly three years removed from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, the investing public has grown increasingly frustrated with the lack of criminal prosecutions and insufficient penalties levied against the senior executives and companies responsible for igniting the subprime meltdown. Revelations of greed and mismanagement related to the meltdown continue to emerge almost daily. The failure of regulatory agencies such as the SEC and Department of Justice to hold individuals accountable, despite significant evidence that intentional misconduct by U.S. corporations caused the financial crisis, has subjected those agencies to intense criticism.

      It has fallen to investors to fill the vacuum left by those regulators, by enforcing the securities laws through civil litigation. This process is critically important to ensure the integrity of the market, make certain that shareholders are adequately compensated for their losses, and send a strong message that fraudulent conduct will not be tolerated. However, the obstacles litigants face in deterring and punishing corporate fraud have increased in recent years.

      Please join our panel of experts as they discuss the challenges of holding corporate America accountable, the limits of regulatory, criminal and private enforcement, and why the "small fish fry and the big fish wiggle off the hook."

      Our panelists are:

      --Former SEC Chief Accountant Lynn Turner, corporate governance expert and senior advisor to international forensics and accounting firm LECG;
      --Former federal prosecutor David Anders, now a Partner with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz;
      --BlackRobe Capital Partners Managing Director Sean Coffey, a former federal prosecutor and leading plaintiff securities litigator; and
      --BLB&G partner Chad Johnson as moderator.
