Enterprise growth requires executive leadership involvement when it comes to changing the culture, focus, or services an organization offers. To be successful, the growth strategy must focus on many things at once, including people. Every aspect of the organization has to work together, and here’s where HR’s role is crucial. Whether it’s a new product, or a shift in competitive focus, HR is intrinsic to helping the company stay competitive. HR’s role in driving the success of the organization includes a number of factors. HR must ensure the administrative function of the organization are handled, but must focus attention on the important role of sharing the culture and vision of the organization. Internal and external relationships will help shape the HR function, as well as your career.
If your organization stores or backs up any data related to medical information – for example, leave of absence data or healthcare claims associated with company personnel records, or if you’re an MSP, customer patient records – you’re subject to HIPAA regulations.
Further, if you store HIPAA-related data, you’re also a target for hackers. Medical data can be worth 10x more than credit card numbers to a cybercriminal.
HIPAA compliance failures and data breaches can end your business. Dr. Ranya Habash, Chief Medical Officer, Everbridge, delivered a riveting keynote on this topic at Connect IT Global, and in this new webinar she shared a doctor’s perspective on what you need to know NOW to understand and mitigate the risks related to HIPAA compliance.
- How easy it is to fall out of compliance with HIPAA. No matter what your business – you can even be a subcontractor for a covered business associate – you are subject to HIPAA penalties for compliance failures.
- How costly compliance failures can be. You can be fined a minimum of $100 per violation up to $50,000, even if you were unaware of and couldn’t have avoided breaking HIPAA rules. Penalties jump rapidly, and could put you out of business.
- The upside to compliance for both internal IT and MSPs. In reducing risk, you become a trusted advisor – and more.
Learn from Dr. Habash’s unique perspective, and take away approaches to reduce your HIPAA compliance risk.

For 25 years or more we have fought the battle of passwords and patches while all around us, the world has developed, data has exponentially increased, attack surfaces are everywhere and technology had quite simply forced the human race to consider the evolution cycle in single lifespans as opposed to millennia. During the last 25 years we have done little to protect the charges we are responsible for, we have failed to secure systems, allowed financial attacks, infrastructure attacks, and now attacks directly against humans. At what point will we be able to stem the bleeding and actually take charge of our realm? Have we left it too late, or are we still able to claw back out of the abyss and face our adversary in a more asymmetrical defensive manner? Can we actually provide safety and security to our charges or will we continue to fail? And, critically, how do we communicate this, and educate a population that is content to watch from the sidelines, while they are being digitally eviscerated.
The most important question to ask which provisions of the law is built to last and will have more impact, says Lanhee Chen, David and Diane Steffy Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University, on the recent tax reform. What should private equity industry keep an eye out for?

According to McKinsey, AI will trigger an estimated $13 trillion of GDP growth between now and 2030. How can the wealth management industry capitalize on the latest artificial intelligence advancements to stay ahead of the technological curve, thereby both driving down long term costs and increasing overall productivity?
Through the use of CogniCor’s CIRA platform, wealth management firms can create and maintain their own virtual assistants (VAs) which through the use of workflows can automate complex tasks for both financial advisors and their customers. Through the rapid ingestion of vast amounts of data, the virtual assistant allows financial advisors to interact more on a personal level with their clients, thereby helping them to reach their wealth management goals more effectively.
The time that an advisor spends should be focused on working with their clients. By automating standard operations, advisors can focus on improving their clients’ portfolios, understanding their goals, and ultimately maximizing their short, medium and long term potential for growth.
Many financial advisors and wealth management firms are still unaware of how technology enhances financial advisors’ performance. CogniCor is poised to be a leader in the industry, and look forward to bringing our experience with enterprise leaders to the rest of the industry players, be they small, medium or enterprise firms.

Customer acquisition is top of mind for most financial service organizations and their boards. Normally, when banks and other financial service institutions think customer acquisition, they think about launching a new advertising campaign with the hope of driving more online or in-branch traffic -- but these campaigns are iffy at best.
Instead, why not rethink your online account opening process where FSIs lose about 20% of their prospects through abandonment. If you can plug that leaky funnel, you will see an immediate improvement in customer acquisition.
Join us for this informative “how-to” webinar and discover how to…
- Dissect the abandonment problem
- Reduce the number of identity verification screens & clicks
- Cast a wider net with omni-channel verification
- To say “no” to verification “maybes”

Mottos like "If you see something, say something" speak to the power of human observation in preventing security disasters. Similarly, valuable human-generated intelligence can be effective in preventing data breaches emanating from phishing attacks. In today’s changing cyber threat landscape, humans need to be conditioned to recognise phishing attacks and security teams need to be armed with actionable threat intelligence to rapidly manage an attack once it hits.
This is where Phishing Threat Intelligence comes into play. By extracting key IOCs from newer phishing threats and making them available to security teams, organisations can detect attacks in progress and respond quickly to reduce the effect of a breach. Plus, by incorporating the same intelligence and tactics in your awareness program, you can train your users to more quickly detect and report an active threat.
Join this webinar to learn about:
-The constantly changing threat landscape
-Turning active, real threats into learning moments for your users
-Speeding up response with timely, actionable intelligence

Complexity, technological change, and regulations are increasing the pressure on security professionals.
