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

With the industry shift to value-based reimbursements and bundled payments, effective communication and care team collaboration are critical in reducing readmissions and avoiding costly penalties.
Join our Healthcare Industry team leaders as they discuss how Salesforce Health Cloud can help organizations deliver better patient care after discharge from acute care facilities. We’ll also show a demonstration specifically for how organizations can use Salesforce for the Medicare Comprehensive Care Joint Replacement (CCJR) program.
*According to data from the Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA)
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.

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

Protecting your institution’s image is one of the most important risk management challenges that your board of trustees faces. When the reputation of a university or higher education establishment is damaged, it can adversely affect student enrollment, alumni donations and funding. Reputational risk can come from many different directions, making it is easy for your board to miss something critical no matter how prepared you think you may be. Utilising a secure board portal is the easiest way to mitigate these potential reputational risks and help develop smarter strategies to manage them.
Join us for a 30-minute webinar to learn more about how with the right board portal, you can:
• Allow your board easy access to critical information
• Promote collaboration amongst the board
• Keep your confidential board materials secure
• Minimise the risk of overlooking crucial information

Join us on Tuesday, July 15th for a Webinar with Larry Whiteside, Chief Information Security Officer for LCRA, as he discusses Patching and Compliance: A CISO's perspective to reducing risk.
Over the past few years security has gotten caught up in the latest hype or trends related to threats. This has caused many security teams to lose focus of some basic things that can be done to mitigate new and old threats in their environment. In this Webinar we will discuss tride and true techniques to mitigate risk and help security organizations take care of some low hanging fruit.
There is a huge imbalance between the time and effort it takes a security manager to find and close attack vectors, versus the time it takes an attacker to exploit a security gap. A security team may need weeks to scan a network and fix vulnerabilities, while attacks can be successful in minutes. Time is of the essence, and risk analytics convert security data into actionable intelligence fast.
In this presentation, recorded at InfoSecurity Europe 2014, Skybox Security CEO and Founder Gidi Cohen explores the popular approaches for IT security management and why common methodologies are no longer effective at reducing the attack surface. He also reviews practical ways to leverage security data and risk analytics tools to shrink the attack surface every day.
