    • Mastering your currency risk management
      Mastering your currency risk management Marc Tuehl, Nobby Clark and Nic Jones, HSBC; Brendan Maton, IPE Recorded: May 16 2017 2:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • Currency volatility can have a significant impact on the risk /return profile of a diversified investment portfolio. Inefficiencies in implementing and managing a currency hedging strategy on a cyclical basis could also result in negative impacts.

      Measuring exposure to foreign currencies, monitoring any changes and managing this risk on a continuous basis raises various considerations. Not only do you need to define your investment and risk objectives, but also to consider operational risks, cost constraints and regulatory compliance. It is equally important to know the market and assess risk and opportunities specific to the global foreign exchange market.
      Our currency experts can help you find the right balance between risk and return, guide you on how to establish a robust currency management programme and how to manage related costs in an efficient manner.

      At HSBC, we can help you address these challenges with an innovative and tailored approach to outsourcing currency hedging activities. This allows financial institutions, both asset managers and institutional investors, to focus on core investment activities.

      It is time to re-think your currency management strategy. Find out more - http://www.gbm.hsbc.com/solutions/markets/fx-currency-management

    • Using Open Standards to Comply with GDPR
      Using Open Standards to Comply with GDPR Tommaso De Orchi, Solution Manager (EMEA), Yubico and Nic Sarginson, Solutions Engineer (EMEA) Recorded: Aug 17 2017 8:00 am UTC 33 mins
    • 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

    • With global web usage converting from desktop to a variety of screen sizes, most organizations have embraced responsive web design as a key part of their product strategy. As a result, stakeholders are making decisions to implement technical solutions across various platforms and form factors.

      There's a huge body of research demonstrating that page load time has a significant impact on business metrics ranging from conversions and revenue to user satisfaction and retention. Because of this, organizations are adopting a variety of solutions -- including single-page application (SPA) and Google Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) frameworks -- to deliver better, faster mobile experiences for their users. To effectively measure and correlate performance to business metrics, organizations are employing Real User Monitoring (RUM) solutions coupled with SPA and AMP support.

      This webinar will explore SPA and AMP frameworks in modern applications, and will show you best practices about how to monitor them in RUM, enabling you to understand and optimize performance across all form factors and to increase conversions and revenue.

      You will learn about:
      - Market outlook on mobile development and frameworks
      - AMP framework
      - Common SPA frameworks, including AngularJS, Backbone.js, Ember.js, and React
      - Universal RUM
      - Ability to monitor modern framework applications in RUM

    • Maximizing the Efficiency and Security of Container-based Virtualization
      Maximizing the Efficiency and Security of Container-based Virtualization Tom Spencer and Veer Muchandi Recorded: Jul 18 2017 5:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    • Until recently, a large majority of the virtualized data center infrastructure used hypervisors. This was especially the case in enterprise datacenters. But the hyperscale cloud infrastructure drove up the need for using commodity hardware and open source software, largely driven by the need for cost control and ease of deployment. Containers have emerged as a strong and viable alternative to hypervisors. Containers are seeing a rapid increase in deployment within software defined datacenters, largely driven by its ability to deliver true bare metal performance without the cost, complexity and overhead of hypervisor based virtualization.

      Solarflare XtremeScale Software-Defined NICs are a unique solution for Containers providing maximum efficiency, performance and security. Using a hybrid approach, Solarflare supports both kernel mode for an efficient Container solution while simultaneously offering a kernel bypass option to accelerate applications and networking, increasing scalability and providing both telemetry and security on a per-Container basis.

    • Employment taxes risk for the NHS
      Employment taxes risk for the NHS Gary Saunders, Senior Manager, PricewaterhouseCoopers Recorded: Oct 13 2014 1:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • The employment tax status of workers can be difficult to establish. Where non compliance with the tax legislation arises, it is the NHS organisation, not the worker, that is exposed to additional PAYE and National Insurance Contributions ("NIC") as well as statutory interest and penalties. With increased HMRC activity in this area and the financial as well as the reputational risk non compliance brings, this session will look to share some of the areas PwC is seeing in practice as concern to HM Revenue & Customs ("HMRC"). This will include individuals engaged as self-employed, as office holders, through Personal Service Companies and agencies. The session will also look at the interaction with the additional HM Treasury annual requirements for reporting off payroll payments.
