  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

    As healthcare systems transition from “fee for service” to “fee for value” reimbursement models, there is an increasing focus to drive down 30-day re-admission rates, particularly for high risk patients. To this end, Sutter Health is piloting Project RED (Re-engineered Discharge) which leverages predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and then prescribes alternative discharge workflows aimed at lowering the risk of re-admission.

    Join us as Kristen Wilson-Jones, Sutter RD&D CTO, shares how Sutter Health has leveraged MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in an orchestrated plecosystem of technologies to power Project RED by enabling real-time patient risk scoring, clinical workflow management and bi-directional integration with Epic.

    Topics covered
    -------------------
    + How Sutter Health is lowering 30-day re-admission rates by re-engineeing clinical workflows
    + The need for connectivity to enable workflow re-design

  • Gartner has predicted 18-20% growth in SaaS market, and expects it to hit US $22.1 billion by the year 2015. They have also measured that SaaS adoption rate has increased many fold in the last few years (almost 71% of enterprises use SaaS solutions).

    SaaS has come a long way from “hype” to “norm”. The key to this change is the confidence that has been built by the cloud/SaaS community by providing enterprise class security. Since, SaaS model of delivery has become a defacto standard of delivering products it’s critical for software providers to ensure that their SaaS product meets the required industry security standards. In this webinar, we will address the security aspects related to architecture, deployment and management of SaaS solutions.

    Key Takeaways:
    • Security considerations in each of the architecture layers
    • Data isolation risks and mitigation plans
    • Overview of CWE/SANS and OWASP Security threats
    • Data retention and termination policies
    • Infrastructure and cloud related security risks and solutions
  • Modern software development practices dominated by component-based engineering and short development cycles have largely been a catalyst for rapid advancements in technology. These practices, however, have also resulted in an epidemic of known vulnerabilities baked into third-party software components of IoT applications and devices. These widespread security flaws, many of which are critical in nature, often remain unnoticed or unaddressed throughout the software or device lifecycle, posing significant risks to the people and organizations that rely on them.

    As software continues to permeate the ever-expanding Internet of Things, software vulnerabilities represent a greater and greater threat. IoT devices, like traditional computers, run on software that is susceptible to malicious attacks. As more devices become connected, understanding how to identify and manage security vulnerabilities within widely used third-party software components is critical for all stakeholders, including manufacturers and end-users.

    In this webinar, our diverse panel of security experts will:
    •Propose an expanded definition and understanding of IoT and the stakeholders at risk
    •Present research highlighting the pervasiveness of vulnerabilities in third-party software components of IoT devices
    •Draw some conclusions about the state of software security in IoT today
    •Discuss some simple approaches to addressing these problems
  • The Identity and Access Market (IAM) is undergoing exciting changes. Increased cloud adoption, cyber-threats and the speedy adoption of mobile computing is affecting how enterprises approach access security and authentication.

    Getting insight into these trends can help you prepare your organization for better and more effective Identity and Access policies during the coming year.

    Join us on for a webinar on “IAM and Authentication Trends in 2015”, on March 24, 2015, where you can hear all about Identity and Access trends and developments from an industry expert.

  • A lack of manpower and a dearth of resources are often major obstacles for organizations striving to achieve and maintain HIPAA and/or PCI compliance. Compliance guidelines are complex and difficult to decipher, even for the most experienced IT professionals. Recent headlines regarding unprecedented security and compliance breaches are causing companies to examine compliance-as-a-service (CaaS) solutions offered by cloud providers. But with the myriad of options available, it’s difficult for companies to discern which CaaS best fits their needs.

    Join Johan Hybinette, HOSTING Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), as he discusses the benefits and risks associated with CaaS. Drawing upon his 20+ years’ of experience in information security and compliance, Johan will also offer tips for selecting the right CaaS for your business. Bring your questions and leave with the information you need to confidently invest in a CaaS solution.
  • Greater than 80% of today’s breaches occur with application software, yet many companies continue to invest in ‘over the wire’ solutions that are not solving the problem. Runtime Application Self-Protection, or RASP, is an emerging market that promises to protect applications from the inside. Using the rich context of the application’s logic and associated core libraries, RASP identifies attacks in ‘real-time’ and stops them. Implementation is quick and requires no changes to your application’s code. Join us to learn more about what RASP can do for you.

    Learn:
    •Why context from inside the application matters
    •How easy it can be to use native capabilities of Java and .NET to protect your applications
    •Use cases to get you started.

    Help lead your enterprise to a stronger, more effective security program.

  • Protect and Serve: It's a Tough Gig and Sometimes a Thankless One. Recorded: Mar 13 2015 46 mins
    Rob England, Consultant at The IT Skeptic
    "To protect and serve"" is a good motto for IT, as there seems to be an expectation that IT exists only to create new technology solutions in response to the demands of the business: to serve. It's not true. The Information Technology department exists to protect the IT interests of the owners of the organisation whilst also serving IT's customers and users. The two don't always align.

    IT is entrusted with custody of the organisation's IT assets. Sometimes it is not in the best interests of the organisation to abandon those investments or to increase the risks to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information, in order to meet demands for new IT from the customers.

    Join IT Skeptic, consultant and commentator, Rob England as he explores IT's evolving role in striking a balance in extracting maximum value from existing investments against facilitating the generation of value from new investments.

  • Captivate and Enable Your Workforce with Winning Support Recorded: Mar 12 2015 42 mins
    Guest speaker: Amy DeMartine, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research
    The world of IT Service Management (ITSM) has changed greatly in the recent past and will continue to do so at an increasing rate. One thing is clear: consumers of IT services now demand a pain-free, proactive, personalized and productive experience in the workplace, similar to that of consumers outside the workplace. They expect minimal touch points when resolving issues, requesting services, getting assets…and they want to do it themselves, without involving technical assistance. These expectations are the foundation to why Forrester Research sees Workplace Enablement as being the natural evolution of ITSM.

    In this webcast, guest speaker Amy DeMartine, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, talks about what this means to today’s IT organizations and what needs to be done to deliver the service your IT consumers expect in the workplace today and in the future.
