Every enterprise needs a survival guide for compliance. The risk associated with cyber security has a big spotlight on it today—and it’s become a Board-level topic for many enterprises. Compliance with cyber security requirements has transitioned from a "check the box" mentality to a stringent program whereby regulatory requirements and standards as well as enterprise policies and best practices are diligently met, continuously enforced and proven through regular audits. Yet, preparing for audits and maintaining audit readiness takes valuable time and resources– and has become quite a burden!
Join this session to learn about the 6 steps for surviving in today’s compliance jungle.
Based on our research, it takes 100-200 days for most organizations just to detect a new threat–before any action can be taken. How many more days go by before new threat intelligence is enforced?
Where are you gathering this intelligence from? Where and how are you enforcing it? Feed providers, network appliances, endpoint agents, or everywhere?
In this webinar, you’ll learn how:
-Both time-to-detection and attack dwell time is reduced by orders of magnitude through security automation.
-Integrating threat analytics in your security stack creates intelligence specific to your organization.
-You’ll prioritize investigating malicious domains and files involved with severe threats compromising critical systems.
Countries are setting ever higher goals for producing power from clean, renewable energies and some are actively turning their backs on fossil fuels. However, many of these regions are discovering the real challenges of trying to produce baseload power for public consumption from renewable sources which are, at best, intermittent, and, at worse, unpredictable and unreliable. Until large scale energy storage is available and affordable, baseload power from coal, gas, and/or nuclear will remain necessary in many regions for several more years. Obviously this baseload power is required when renewable output is low (when the sun doesn't shine and the wind doesn't blow). However, it is also still required to make up the balance of power in a diverse energy mix. Under the new energy policy regimes in many regions, renewable sources have priority into the grid and sit in the guaranteed dispatch mix in the base region which coal used to occupy. Coal has now been nudged into the dispatchable area of the mix, being asked to ramp up or down or even to idle or run beyond normal capacity, sometimes at short notice, to produce the balance of power required to maintain grid output. And whilst coal plants can run relatively flexibly, this does not come without cost. Most older coal-fired units were designed to run at steady output. Asking these plants to cycle and ramp puts stresses on the plant which can result in added cost, less efficient production, increased wear and tear and, in some cases, damage causing enforced outages for repair and/or upgrade. This webinar, looks at the stresses placed on coal-fired plants as they are asked to help levelise and counterbalance the intermittency of renewable sources, concentrating on the risks and costs. Case studies and examples of issues being encountered in the USA, the UK and Germany are included.Read more >

Highly publicized software attacks and data breaches, combined with strict regulatory requirements, reinforce the ongoing risks associated with cardholder data at all points in the payment stream. The risks to data are everywhere, and your organization is ultimately responsible for the security of customers’ personally identifiable information (PII). This means you must protected PII not only during transaction processing, but also through business processes such as charge-backs, loyalty or repeat payments, storage and analytics – including outsourced environments.
Voltage SecureData™ enables you to ensure sensitive data is de-identified while maintaining logical and referential integrity so it can remain in a protected state while still usable for critical business processes. Integration of Voltage SecureData with Thales nShield® hardware security modules (HSMs) provides enhanced safekeeping and management of critical cryptographic keys that underpin the security of the process. Enforced protection of sensitive data using policy driven data security enables you to protect PII across your entire workflow without disrupting operations and ensuring you can adhere to privacy regulations.
Structured authoring is a publishing workflow that lets you define and enforce consistent organization of information in documents, whether printed or online. In traditional publishing, content rules are captured in a style guide and enforced by (human) editors, who read the information and verify that it conforms to the approved style. In structured authoring, a file—either a document type definition (DTD) or a schema—captures these content rules. Authors work in software that validates their documents; the software verifies that the documents they create conform to the rules in the definition file.
Structured authoring and XML represent a significant paradigm shift in content creation. Implementing structured authoring with XML allows organizations to enforce content organization requirements. The addition of hierarchy and metadata to content improves reuse and content management. These benefits, however, must be weighed against the effort required to implement a structured authoring approach.
In this free, one-hour webinar, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, welcomes XML publishing expert, Sarah O’Keefe (Scriptorium Publishing), who will demystify structured XML authoring and explore the value of using XML to produce technical content. Sarah will be joined by George Bina of Oxygen XML who will be on hand to answer technical questions about the Oxygen XML Authoring tool.
One lucky attendee will win a free pass to the Information Development World Conference, October 22-24 in San Jose, CA. And, ten registrants will be selected to receive a free copy of the book “The Language of Content Strategy” (2014, XML Press).
Energy and Sustainability Management in the Food and Beverage environment, reducing your Operating Costs, to Boost your Profit Margins.
Compared to other industries, the Food and Beverage (F&B) industry leads the way in terms of the development and deployment of sustainability programmes. F&B manufacturers have improved the efficiency of their facilities, invested in renewable energy, and managed the sustainability of their supply chains in order to lower the impact on the environment. The F&B industry has met the requirements of global and local legislation, and leads all sectors in sustainability disclosure.
However, with persistent global resource shortages and increasing energy and commodity prices, tougher governmental regulations will be enforced and customers will demand increased transparency of F&B operations. It is estimated that 10% of the world’s emissions come from manufacturing, and that a 26% improvement potential exists for manufacturing firms worldwide.
This Webinar, recommends an integrated Sustainability and Energy Management programme resulting in reduced costs, increased profitability, lower carbon emissions, mitigated risk and improved corporate image for F&B organisations.
In today's world, everyone wants access to information from his or her personal mobile device. As a business, this includes your customers and/or employees. What if the information they want access to is highly sensitive? While it's tempting to resist these pressures for security reasons, providing mobile access can be a significant competitive advantage and most importantly keep your customers and employees happy and productive. The reality is that in order to survive in a connected world, we must provide a way to meet these demands without sacrificing security.
Organizations have begun moving from "managed devices" to a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) model where company resources can be accessed and stored on unmanaged devices. As you can imagine, there are some inherent risks with this approach due to the organizations inability to enforce policies on personal devices. There is currently a huge market for solutions that allowing enterprises protect their data on unmanaged devices. Enter "Secure Containers” and “Application Wrapping". The basic premise of these solutions is that it allows organizations enforce policies at the application layer rather than the device layer. For example, authentication, remote wipes, lockouts and data encryption can now be enforced on a per application basis. Application Wrapping is a technique, which allows the ability inject their own code into existing iOS applications. Once injected, existing iOS method implementations can be overwritten to enforce these policies. In a nutshell, you can have an existing application and have it wrapped so that it enforces various defined policies and secure it without developers having to manually implement it.
*On this webcast we're giving away a non-transferable guest pass to the IQPC 2nd Annual Cyber Security for Oil and Gas Summit, being held in Houston, Texas between June 16 - 18, 2014.
In December 2013, US retailer Target suffered a high profile data breach at the hands of a cybercriminal group, who infected its point-of-sale (PoS) terminals with malware to steal the details of around 110 million customers. Marcus Group's systems were also compromised recently and crooks made off with customer card details, while several other merchants are reported to be preparing to go public with their own breaches.
Data breaches are nothing new and have been around for quite some time; however, we are seeing a significant increase in incidents and 2013 was the worst year in terms of data breaches recorded to date. According to the Online Trust Alliance over 740 million records were exposed in 2013, and they determined that 89% of all breach incidents were avoidable had basic security controls and best practices been enforced. Join us as we discuss some key lessons learned from the recent breaches and:
- Discuss how malware aimed at retailers is evolving on a daily basis
- Analyze the tools and methodology employed hackers to bypass security
- Address steps retailers and banking institutions should take to secure their networks
- Provide procedural and technical steps for securing third party code
- Discuss how to develop an effective Data Incident (DIP) Plan, including a communication strategy

For lenders operating in the shadow of the Dodd-Frank Act, CFPB and other regulatory enforcement agencies are focusing their efforts on consumer protection, disclosure and transparency and deem these critical to all areas of an institution’s compliance and operation. A dizzying array of new rules and regulations, often disruptive to existing operations, are raining down upon the mortgage lending industry. Now, however, it’s not enough to simply be aware of emerging rules and regulations. Little known requirements and regulations which have been on the books for years without being enforced are now getting renewed attention from those agencies, likely opening up an entirely new front in the uphill battle to stay compliant. One of the greatest potential risks to lenders arises from requirements for residential property appraisals and evaluations. It is likely we will see stricter environmental underwriting and more regulatory scrutiny on lenders’ risk management policies. Discover now where lenders are most at risk, and learn about cost-effective measures that can be taken to stay out of the regulatory crosshairs.
The presenters will:
• Identify existing rules and regulations, little-known and long unenforced, that are likely to be revitalized by regulatory enforcers;
• Spell out the specific risks that residential property contamination, including vapor mitigation, will pose to a mortgage lender;
• Explain how the gamut of new and existing requirements will impact traditional due diligence requirements; and
• Predict the possible financial impact upon lenders, as well as offering potential solutions for risk mitigation.

The business benefits and economies of migrating to virtualized and cloud environments are very clear, providing significant cost reduction and system efficiencies, moving to a “pay as you go model”. However, when you move to a dense virtual infrastructure or cloud, you often lose control of the underlying infrastructure, therefore ownership and control of data in that infrastructure. In addition, workloads are mobile yet security is usually tied to underlying infrastructure, removing any assurances that security policies can be enforced as workloads move.
In the journey to virtualization and the cloud, many organizations are still contending with large pools of physical infrastructure. They want to gain the efficiency and lower cost associated with server consolidation and virtualization, but security and audit teams advise them this puts the company’s sensitive data at risk. Automating IT in a private cloud keeps developers and other users in-house and under an organization’s control, but rapid deployment of workload requires agile security.
Join your fellow professionals to first understand the challenges and roadblocks of migrating to the cloud and virtualized environments, and where the data security gaps exist. Then understand how by attaching security to the data itself and managing the encryption keys, you are able to maintain control of your data, prove compliance, and facilitate governance – even in a dense virtual or cloud environment. Virtualization, Hybrid or Public cloud offerings can now be used for broader workloads (including ones containing business critical, sensitive data ie. production servers in addition to test and development), while still delivering the security and compliance requirements needed.
