As organizations move to virtual data centers and multi-cloud environments in a dangerous threat climate, they are faced with new security challenges they must overcome. But, they must do this without exponentially increasing the manpower, products, or resources they need, so they still get the most of their valuable security budgets. These challenges include:
-Improving visibility inside data centers and cloud
-Reducing the attack surface
-Maintaining regulatory compliance standards.
WHAT'S IN THIS WEBINAR:
vArmour will explore trends in data center security that include the rise of software to replace firewalls inside the data center, segmentation and micro-segmentation as security techniques, and shifting ideas about software defined networking that:
-Eliminate under-utilized zones and choke points
-Avoid costly hardware refresh cycles and on-going maintenance
-Lower the time it takes to see and stop threats
-Reduce the time and complexity to process security changes
-Increase speed of secure application delivery

The NHS Five Year Forward View requires £20bn - £30bn cost improvements by 2020. Patient care requires continuous improvements to keep pace with increasing expectations on services. This calls for Trusts to improve processes, while reducing actual delivery costs.
Trusts need to understand the positive financial impact of an Outpatient Process Redesign. Winscribe’s healthcare process experts Chris Rodwell and Robin Kilner show how this can be achieved. The purpose of the redesign is to identify and write an action plan to reduce the costs of supporting outpatients by a minimum of £1m per annum for a small to medium trust. More for larger trusts.
Cost savings can be made as a result of:-
•Better document creation – getting it down to seconds per appointment for the clinician
•Reducing costs of administration for discharge / clinic letter production – reductions of 50 – 60% possible
•Improve document sharing (time taken) and document TAT – reduces admin further
•Accuracy – right first time
•Reduced cost per letter - reductions of 50 – 60% possible
This webinar is to share this approach with NHS Finance Managers and Directors. We will examine actual case studies and show the savings that can be made, in the current financial year and over a 5 year plan. Winscribe’s healthcare process experts Chris Rodwell and Robin Kilner show how this can be achieved.

Build an Active Application Defense System
Web applications accounted for an astounding 40% of last year’s security breaches. The challenges of securing legacy systems, third-party apps, and the extensive shadow IT landscape can be challenging, to put it mildly.
But here’s the good news: The combined F5 and WhiteHat Security approach to web application security represents a powerful new way for organizations to defend against application-level attacks.
Companies are constantly developing new applications, and it’s expensive to stop and patch as soon as a new vulnerability is found. Additionally, it may not be practical to remediate every finding due to issues with legacy code, third-party integrations, or other inherited limitations.
But the integration of F5 Networks and WhiteHat Security technology helps you more quickly identify and remediate vulnerabilities in your web applications. By automating updates to the web application firewall, you can ease the burden of management and reduce costs, while ensuring that your security posture remains strong.

In recent years, criminal fines and penalties have risen drastically as a result of price-fixing and bid-rigging conspiracies uncovered among automotive parts manufacturers. While companies face these mounting fines, they need not accept the fine initially imposed. The United States Sentencing Guidelines do allow for a reduction of a criminal fine based on a company’s inability to pay. This webcast seeks to inform practitioners on the considerations of this ability-to-pay defense, strategies and process. As an illustration, this webcast includes a case study analyzing a company’s ability to pay a fine resulting from antitrust violations; however, the described methodology has other applications. Additional arenas where this defense has relevance include environmental clean-up costs, healthcare fraud, securities and commodities fraud, as well as FCPA and sanctions violations.
The session will provide insight into the financial analyst’s role in evaluating the company’s financial status and the basis of the framework for the ability-to-pay argument. As part of the case study, the session will walk through an ability-to-pay model including analysis of projected free cash flow and the strength of the company’s balance sheet. Lastly, the session will address the importance of the financial expert’s role in discussions with the DOJ and its financial expert.

Few industries are changing as rapidly as energy. The variable price of carbon-based fuels and the rise of alternative technologies are prompting businesses and consumers alike to examine how to streamline power usage and boost sustainability. Internet of Things (IoT) is poised to be a catalyst for even greater energy industry transformation. In the session below, we show how to look beyond the hype and create an Energy strategy that will unlock the potential of the Internet of Your Things to realize real, transformative results in your organization.
Hadoop is a wonderful framework that can drive insight into a range of problems, but administrators can be blind to performance, utilization and cost issues of cluster deployments. There’s risk in sizing initial deployments properly, as well as determining optimal capacity over time. Without sufficient visibility, job performance can suffer and costs can escalate. Keeping a critical resource running effectively and being able to plan for the future requires intelligent decision making capabilities that many Hadoop deployments lack. This webinar will look into common problems that affect clusters and ways to detect issues early and head off long term problems. We’ll dig into capacity management and ways to deal with ever increasing demands for Hadoop resources.
• Understand initial deployment challenges
• Handling cluster growth
• Working to meet increasing pressure on storage and job density
• Planning for capacity growth and extension to cloud
Uncertainty is a constant theme in the reinsurance industry, especially in disaster-prone regions for which detailed exposure data is lacking. How can re/insurers make meaningful risk assessments and write more business in these areas?
