      Hands On Approach - How you can best serve your customers with their finances David Rosenberg, CEO, Budget Referee Recorded: Jul 17 2018 5:00 pm UTC 41 mins
    • The US banking system could better serve customers and their own institutions. The primary methods for budgeting have been financial literacy, DIY fee apps & spreadsheets. These may provide a level of solution, they have made little impact for most. Financial stress is at an unprecedented high and is fraught with guilt, shame, & confusion. That makes the limited time with customers even more critical for advisors. Learn some leading-edge concepts that will improve the level of trust by your customers, regardless of their level of debt, amount of income, or educational level. Although the potential to improve service through innovative solutions & technology at scale is huge, banks and credit unions show an aversion to change. The status quo, while great for quarterly profits, misses the mark when it comes to maximizing the benefits to their customers. By attending this webinar, you will learn:
      • The optimal step by step approach to budgeting
      • What “zero balance” should look like
      • Why people are hesitant to provide their information
      • Which services to recommend
      • How to handle each step of the discussion
      • Where retirement plans fit in
      • The importance of having a cash flow strategic plan
      • Problems with categorization as a major component of budgets

      David is CEO of Budget Referee, a software startup in FinTech. He has implemented process improvements & cost savings projects by working with stakeholders. His achievements include tracking large budgets for initiatives across disparate departments in a privately held corporation. While at a large government contractor, he drove a new way to view chargeback and utilization of human capital, saving approximately 750 hours of managers’ time annually. His obsession with budgeting began over 40 years ago as a bookkeeper working with small businesses & households. He has a mission to help others through his budgeting software and looks forward to the launch of Budget Referee to the public at large by the end of 2018.

    • Nearly 1.5 million dollars. That’s how much an average data breach in the cloud costs enterprises, according to the Global IT Security Risks Survey 2018.

      Second only to targeted attacks, breaches affecting IaaS are among the most costly faced by businesses today. But what can be done about this? Apparently, investing more in protection is only part of the solution, as businesses are already allocating a greater share of their IT budgets to security…

    • Internal Bug Hunts: Squashing Security Bugs on a Budget
      Internal Bug Hunts: Squashing Security Bugs on a Budget Pieter Ockers - Sr Program Manager at Adobe Recorded: Sep 19 2017 5:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • Far too often, testing software for security flaws falls into the “nice-to-have” category, taking a backseat to the demands of the marketplace and inflexible feature release schedules. In addition to the expense of hiring an outside security testing team, testing for and fixing obscure security bugs is a brake on an engineer’s ability to put new code in the hands of their customers. Fortunately, there is a workaround to this dilemma that will allow you to promote application security awareness while helping to reduce security bugs in your applications.

      An internal bug hunt contest - in which your employees compete for prizes by finding and reporting security bugs - enables you to harness the creativity and problem-solving skills of your workforce while reducing security bugs in your applications. It can also help promote a culture of security awareness - without a large security testing budget.

      An internal bug hunt contest can you help you:

      • Find and remediate vulnerabilities before external entities can exploit them
      • Provide a safe platform for your application owners to test for security bugs
      • Promote application security awareness
      • Engage employees outside of the central security team who want to explore the security domain

      In this webcast, you will learn how an internal bug bounty program can help you find security flaws in your applications before criminals or spies, while improving the security culture at your company.

    • Implementing Water Budget Rate Structures for Conservation
      Implementing Water Budget Rate Structures for Conservation Ken Baerenklau, UC Riverside & Tim Barr, Western Municipal Water District Recorded: Mar 24 2015 9:00 pm UTC 71 mins
    • Ken Baerenklau will present the results of a study conducted at UC Riverside that examined the effects of switching from uniform to budget-based rates in the Eastern Municipal Water District of Southern California. The study utilized ten years of monthly water bills for 12,000 customers in EMWD’s service area to calibrate a household water demand model and then estimate the effects of the budget-based rate structure on water demand after controlling for average price level, weather, and income. The rate structure appears to have reduced demand by 10-15% primarily by causing previously inefficient households to become more efficient.

      The second presentation, by Tim Barr, Western’s Deputy Director of Water Resources, will outline the Western Municipal Water District implementation of a water budget-based rate structure for its retail water customers. Western’s unique approach uses real-time, microzone-specific, evapotranspiration data and modified monthly turfgrass coefficients from UC research to calculate accurate landscape water budgets on a daily basis. Western’s finance and water efficiency staff collaborated with rate and horticultural consultants to develop a structure that safeguards the financial integrity of the District, provides each unique customer with the water they need, and sends appropriate pricing signals based on efficient water use with every water service bill. In 2015, Western linked the rate structure and the District’s shortage contingency program in anticipation of reduced water supplies due to statewide drought.
