If you want your product content to work for you (rather than the other way around), you need a content strategy. In fact, you probably need a Unified Content Strategy -- a three-pronged approach that empowers you to do just about anything with your product content.
Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a free, one-hour webinar with content strategy maven, Regina Lynn Preciado. Regina will discuss the need for a flexible, forward-looking content strategy. You'll learn what a Unified Content Strategy is, why it’s important, and five things you can do to start working toward a more strategic approach to product content.

Organizations collaborating with third-party entities, where employees are sharing files with individuals outside of the organization, are facing security risks at unprecedented scale. These dynamics correlate to the need for security controls such as Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) to protect sensitive information when it travels outside of the corporate firewall.
In this presentation, analyst Doug Cahill from Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) will discuss the findings from a recent study where over 200 IT and Security Professionals shared their views on the challenges with external collaboration, and his recommendations for best practices. Lynne Courts, VP of Marketing from Seclore will share how to build a comprehensive data-centric security strategy with such technologies as next-generation EDRM.
Join us and discover:
- The most vulnerable information – what types of files are regularly shared externally that pose the greatest risks
- Industry and analyst views on where shared sensitive data needs protecting, and what defences are most effective
- How to best design a comprehensive data-centric security strategy for shared information that will protect data, meet compliance regulations and reduce your risks

As you move to the cloud, ensure that you secure your IT Delivery apabilities with spelled out business objectives to which the IT organisation can deliver with an effective Service Strategy to leverage IT in the execution of the Business Strategy http://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/29211 .
Where security is important, and I would think twice on the data that I would choose to put on the cloud, Time to Market and Cost Effectiveness are the critical success factors.
Time to Market should not only include “how fast do we get IT services set” but how can we leverage the business strategy execution with IT as we support the end to end delivery of new products / services to market.
The impact of Cost Effectiveness can be measured only as Total Cost of Ownership with cost, consumption and chargeback is defined (Cloud Computing: Fluff or Lightening http://www.brighttalk.com/community/it-service-management/webcast/21892 ).
We also need to define a clear IT Service Strategy with an “IT Business Model” (“This is how we deliver IT services to the business”) and a “Business (IT) Value proposition” (“This is how we support business objectives with services in a time to market perspective”).
Content marketing is an exciting concept that can generate a tremendous amount of success when executed correctly. For a lot of us, the issue is just that: we are not sure exactly how to execute a content marketing program. Suffice it to say that content marketing is the last step in the overall content creation process, and success with the process all comes down to your content strategy.
In this session, we'll start off by going over exactly what the difference between content strategy and content marketing really is. Subsequently, we'll examine how to conduct a content strategy audit in order to ensure that our content is working towards helping us achieve our goals. Attendees will walk away with the necessary steps and action items to review key performance indicators related to their content, identify opportunities through the analysis of social data and optimize their content strategy based on the findings of their audit.
Content marketing can be a cornerstone of success when it comes to your social business. In order for that to be the case, a fully optimized content strategy needs to be in place.

Two events in a single month recently reshaped the cyber-security landscape– the President’s Cybersecurity Executive Order and a massive ransomware attack that struck countless organizations worldwide. At their core, these headlines span common unresolved matters that affect nearly every practitioner in the cybersecurity field.
The Wannacry ransomware attacks exploited unpatched-yet-well-known vulnerabilities. The White House policy explicitly supports a risk based approach, mandating that federal agencies prioritize IT security strategy based on exposure of their most valued assets.
For years, cybersecurity teams have sought to tackle those threats and vulnerabilities that could compromise these critical assets. Given the state of real-world threats and these new marching orders, both public and private sector organizations must re-assess where they stand and take a closer look at evolving practices.
This webinar, co-presented by Craig A. Newman, Partner and Chair of Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP’s Privacy and Data Security Practice, and Steven Grossman, VP of Strategy at Bay Dynamics will cover:
* The must-know takeaways of the latest Cybersecurity Executive Order
* Related findings from the recently released report – A Day in the Life of a Cybersecurity Pro
* How private and public organizations can apply specific practices that directly enable more effective prioritization of asset-based IT risk
You may know that email is a top vector for advanced threats targeting your organisation. But did you know that attackers have evolved their techniques to bypass even your most sophisticated email security tools? Your people, data, and brand reputation are at serious risk.
Join the Proofpoint for "How to Build an Advanced Email Security Strategy." to learn about:
• The latest email fraud techniques, including business email compromise (BEC), ransomware, and sandbox-evasion threats.
•Key steps to building an email security strategy that can adapt to and stop attacks before they reach the inbox.
• How to respond to and mitigate security risks faster and more reliably at a reduced cost.
ITSPmagazine chats with Caroline Wong, VP of Security Strategy at Cobalt.
Here are a few highlights from our conversation with Caroline:
- With traditional penetration test programs its hard to match the right skills at the right time, but the crowdsourced pool of talent offers more to choose from.
- The Cobalt Penetration Test Metrics Report describes the key metrics needed to determine the impact of ROI of a modern penetration testing program - skill sets are matched to the technology stack.
- It's one thing to find security issues, but it's another to integrate with development processes in order to get them fixed; Cobalt integrates with developer bug tracking systems so teams can answer the time-to-fix question.
- A big believer in diversity promoting better workplace results, Caroline believes the crowdsourcing model supports this premise.
Gone are the days when proprietary hardware was our only option in the data center. As companies seek technologies that would make use of their existing infrastructure, Open Source quickly became the staple solution for innovation and flexibility within the data center. If you’re looking ways to explore an open source strategy for the first time, or to take your existing strategy to the next level, this webinar is for you!
Join Nithya Ruff, Director of Open Source Office and board member at the Linux Foundation, as she shares why you need an open source strategy, and how you can grow your own. We look forward to collaborating with you!
The session will explore how this rapidly developing area of VR / AR / Mixed Reality and its position and convergence in the areas of advanced Customer Experience, Digital Asset Management and new A.I. led augmentation strategies starting to transform processes and experience.
We introduce a novel approach to framing digital spaces and how to measure Augmented impact on performance metrics and then explore how this is further developing into A.I. Intelligent spaces and what this may mean for Business Operating Models and future work automation design in what is described as Intelligent Business Strategy.
We include a few actual cases studies of how Cyber-physical systems driving “Digital Twins” are extending across processes and changing supply chain feedback and interaction for smart energy, smart design and new knowledge capabilities.
