According to the United Nations, on average, more than 200 million people were affected and more than 70,000 were killed by natural disasters annually. Given the fact that one of the primary responsibilities of government is to protect the public and minimize the effects of such calamities, citizens now demand that public-sector safety organizations be proactive, and respond promptly and effectively to all types of crisis situations, including catastrophes, terror events, and threats to critical infrastructure.
To effectively respond to these challenges, public safety agencies must be able to rely on secure networks with integrated voice, video, and data capabilities. With these networks and their associated assets, agencies can obtain more timely and accurate information, enhancing situational awareness and improving response times.

In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis regulatory exams have become increasingly demanding for governance, risk, and compliance professionals. New rules brought about by the Dodd-Frank Act will continue to shape future examinations including safety and soundness, compliance, market conduct, and risk-based targeted exams. We can expect these changes will require examiners to spend more time onsite, request more documents, and extend the scope and/or depth of their examinations. This means it is more important than ever to avoid the classic mistake of sharing examination documents through ad-hoc, manual processes and delivering highly sensitive data through unsecured channels like mail, e-mail, thumb drives, and FTP.
In response to these increasing burdens financial institutions are looking to take control with a more structured, collaborative process for collecting, refining, and submitting regulatory information. Download this white paper to learn more about Intralinks VIA.

Need to optimize your risk management program? Strategic risk management is crucial because of increased regulatory pressures, stakeholder pressures, the impact on capital costs, the personal effect of corporate risk, and the effect of the Internet of quickening the pace of dealing with risk factors.
The global financial crisis of 2008 still reverberates today. Sluggish economic growth, stricter regulatory requirements and rapidly changing consumer behavior are placing unprecedented demands on the banking industry. In recent years, banks – particularly those with substantial retail operations – have relied on the lethargy of their customers to maintain their business. Customer loyalty has been based more on proximity of local branches and convenience of ATM networks than the quality of customer care or products and services priced and tailored to a bank’s best customers. In response to the financial crisis, banks have focused on wringing complexity and costs from their systems – exacerbated by mergers and acquisitions – while dealing with new and tighter regulations. Yet, their traditional “one-size-fits-all” mass-marketing approach to customers has remained constant.

Throughout the industrialized world, healthcare systems are in crisis. Aging populations and skyrocketing costs are putting unprecedented financial and organizational pressure on healthcare providers and payers. The result is often a decreasing level of care. In response, fundamental changes are taking place. Patient-centric systems are evolving in which the patient's well-being and the responsibility for good health are defining treatment and operational policies.
The financial crisis that began in 2007 highlighted the major shortcomings of the regulatory framework around minimum capital requirements and liquidity requirements. In response, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision made substantial revisions to its guidelines - specifically, by including more demanding capital and liquidity requirements now commonly referred to as Basel III framework. National banking authorities around the world are adopting the new Basel III framework as a way to eliminate systemic liquidity risk and promote greater transparency of risk management practices.
