    • Spreadsheets: The Dark Matter of IT Spreadsheets: The Dark Matter of IT Prof. Felienne Hermans, Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology Recorded: Feb 19 2014 10:00 am UTC 43 mins
    • Spreadsheets are used extensively in industry: they are the number one tool for financial analysis and are also prevalent in other domains, such as logistics and planning. Their flexibility and immediate feedback make them easy to use for non-programmers. But they are as easy to build, as they are difficult to analyze, maintain and check. Felienne’s research aims at developing methods to support spreadsheet users to understand, update and improve spreadsheets. Inspiration was taken from classic software engineering, as this field is specialized in the analysis of data and calculations. In this talk Felienne will summarize her recently completed PhD research on the topic of spreadsheet structure visualization, spreadsheet smells and clone detection, as well as presenting a sneak peek into the future of spreadsheet research at Delft University.

      Bio: Felienne is a professor and an entrepreneur in the field of spreadsheets. Her PhD thesis centers around techniques to extract information from spreadsheets and present that in a visual way, to support users in improving and understanding them. In 2010 Felienne founded Infotron, a start up that uses the algorithms developed during the PhD project to analyze spreadsheet quality for large companies. In her spare time, Felienne volunteers as a judge for the First Lego League, a world wide technology competition for kids.

    • Third-parties, partners and vendors with access to your networks and data make your organization vulnerable to breaches. Clearly, your business needs to work with third parties, but you don’t want your company to fall victim to data theft, brand damage, and possible government fines as a result, so you have to take third-party and vendor assessment very seriously.

      With Qualys Security Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) you can expand the scope of risk and compliance data beyond technical vulnerabilities to verify that third-party vendors are in compliance with emerging regulatory requirements. By automating a traditionally manual process, Qualys SAQ frees you from unreliable and labor-intensive approaches such as email and spreadsheets.

      * Third-Party risk assessment
