Every year, retail companies are seeing more of their revenue shift to the ecommerce part of their business during the holiday season. For 2015, revenue from ecommerce sites during the holidays is forecasted to yield over $82 Billion, an increase of 14% over 2014. With this amount of retail revenue moving to ecommerce sites, companies cannot afford to have any downtime that might deter customers from accessing their site and or having a smooth customer experience. Of all the ways an ecommerce site might be affected to upset a business during a busy revenue-generating holiday season, cyber breaches are usually not thought as one of them until it’s too late.
Security breaches are an increasingly damaging threat within the retail and ecommerce industry and can disrupt the availability and revenue of ecommerce and retail businesses. In some cases, several of the highest–profile breaches have occurred to household names, and have resulted in millions of records being released–at the cost of tens of millions of dollars–and in at least one case, costing executives their jobs. It is of course important that all retail organizations learn lessons from these breaches so as to not duplicate errors from the past.
In preparation for one of the biggest revenue seasons of the year for ecommerce and Retail, Tricia Pattee, Security Product Manager from HOSTING and Paul Fletcher, Security Evangelist from Alert Logic will provide insight into the latest cyber security trends related to ecommerce and retail as well as the following:
· Examine the attack vectors and the profile of the threat actors of cyber attacks
· Provide an understanding of the weaknesses and vulnerabilities that are affecting retail and ecommerce companies
· Discuss defenses against the retail and ecommerce-related breaches to help detect and prevent copycat attackers

The average investment to meet cloud compliance obligations is $250,000 per year, and the fees for not complying can be as much as $100,000 a month. So while the investment is worthwhile, many companies are unable to achieve such standards due mainly to budget constraints and a lack of expertise.

The architectural pattern of decomposing an application into microservices has proven extremely effective at delivering software faster. However, this type of an architecture comes with its fair share of challenges.

If you are just starting to consider using AWS for running your microservices or if you have already started on the journey and looking for opportunities to improve, then this webinar will be beneficial for you.

The threat of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks is a growing problem for mission-critical websites, such as eCommerce shops, SaaS applications, gaming forums, and University portals; in addition, politically or artistically important organizations and journalists can be especially at risk of attack, due to the nature of their website content.
The company CloudFlare delivers DDoS protection to over 4,000,000 websites globally, from personal blogs to large enterprises, while also offering a free protection program for respected free speech, public interest, and civil society organizations, called “Project Galileo”.

Recently the president of the American Medical Association referred to healthcare IT as the “snake oil” of the 21st century. He referenced ineffective electronic health records, an explosion of direct-to-consumer digital health products, and apps of mixed quality.
In this webinar, leading healthcare expert, Marion Jenkins, will cover the major causes of this sorry state of affairs, and discuss how healthcare technologies can actually help medical practices deliver better patient care.
Major areas to be covered:
1.Who is to blame? There is plenty to go around. Physicians? Healthcare IT vendors? The government? The solution must get past blame and address solutions.
2.How can clinical users and executives “break through” the logjam of sub-optimal IT systems, poor implementation, and ineffective workflows?
3.Is it possible to utilize new technologies to improve patient care, without breaking the bank and further hurting the clinician/patient experience?
4.What are the necessary changes that enable technology to actually provide benefit in a healthcare setting?
