There are obviously a variety of choices open to you: a spreadsheet plug-in may be appropriate if you are only focused on general ledger reporting and do not have concerns over security or compliance. You might also suppose that this is a low-cost option, though we would argue that the remediation required, the additional audit fees and the lack of repeatability means that this is a false economy and that this approach will end up costing you more in the long term. A second use case would be where you already have a financial reporting solution installed, when the add-on facilities for purposes such as business intelligence are likely to be your major focus. In this case an Oracle based solution is likely to be as good as anything else.

Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.
Privileged credentials have served as a major attack vector in the successful execution of many breaches. Protecting privileged access is an imperative to successfully defend an organization from a breach and is a core requirement of multiple compliance regimes.
CA Privileged Access Management helps drive IT security and compliance risk reduction and improves operational efficiency by enabling privileged access defense in depth—providing broad and consistent protection of sensitive administrative credentials, management of privileged identity access and control of administrator activity.
Consistency and customer experience are key to quality and profitability in retail. Manual reporting processes can be unwieldy and time-consuming, but bringing together all compliance procedures under one digital platform means fast, consistent and easy-to-access performance data.
Using real-time insights into best practice improves the reporting of quality control, stock loss prevention, inspection processes, logistics and more – saving time, increasing efficiency and boosting customer satisfaction. Benefits include better branding through monitoring rollouts with uploaded photos and videos, protection against shrinkage through improved inspection processes and audits, and clearer visibility of issues which means a speedier response.
The OCR conducts HIPAA audits of covered entities and their business associates and subcontractors. If HIPAA violations are discovered during these audits, the OCR will implement significant penalties. Additionally, since OCR is posting the details of every breach affecting 500 or more individuals on a public website1 , the organizations involved have become susceptible to class-action lawsuits.
