So you’re thinking about moving to the cloud. Which means you’ve got some new (and some old) security issues to think about.
Where do you start? What should you look for when you’re planning your cloud migration or expansion, and what features do you need to tick off your list when you compare partners for the project?
At AWS, we’ve worked with millions of cloud users in 190 countries, from all kinds of industries – large enterprise, start-ups, non-profits, education and government. Every organisation's needs are different, but we’ve identified the top features of any successful cloud security initiative. Here are six must-haves for cloud security confidence.
You keep close control of the security you need to manage.
You can stop being concerned about the security of the foundational services your IT infrastructure is built on.
You get the benefits of a robust cloud infrastructure with a reliably secure service that’s scalable, responsive, and efficient.
More control, more compliance, less time, less effort.
You know that moving to the cloud is a huge opportunity for your business do great things. Be more agile, be more responsive, do things better.
But convincing everyone in your business isn’t easy, especially your security and compliance people who may well see the cloud as too big a risk.
This eBook is about answering those security questions – and communicating the six core benefits a data secure cloud will bring to your organisation.
You’re on the hook for more than just moving prospects through the funnel and delivering leads to sales. You’re responsible for managing the customer relationship. But how does it feel to the customer when that transition takes place? All too often, the first contact with sales feels like starting the conversation over again. And for customers who have already invested time and energy learning about a company and their products, this can be a jarring experience. Great composers use consistent melodic themes over the course of a piece. As marketers, it is our responsibility to ensure there is harmony and consistency over the full lifecycle of the customer relationship. But linking the conversations that marketing and sales have with prospects depends on your ability (and willingness) to share insights that are born from data.
Compliance is one of the top challenges facing any payroll and HR department. It’s up to you to ensure that all personnel business practices follow current laws and that you are keeping proper records to document your company’s compliance. While an efficient payroll system can help to enhance employee moral and boost your reputation, mistakes in record-keeping and compliance can result in punitive penalties– even lawsuits. Of course, no business wants to expose itself to such financial and reputational risk. However, keeping up to date with payroll legislation can be a complex task. It’s reported that as many as one in three small businesses are penalised for incorrect payroll. To protect your company from costly fines and even litigation, you need to stay informed about employment laws, reporting rules, and changing workforce compliance issues. In this guide, we look at the challenges and the payroll solutions that will help your payroll department meet its compliance requirements wit

The General Data Protection Regulation, is a piece of legislation that was approved and put in to place by the European Parliament in April 2016. As European Law, it will fully take effect after a 2-year transition ending May 25th 2018.
GDPR, replaces the previous Data Protection Directive (DPD), adopted in 1995, and will in the UK, replace and strengthen the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). One of the initial differences between GDPR and DPD, is that GDPR is a regulation not a directive; as a regulation, no additional enabling legislation will have to be passed by governments of member states.
Redstor have the ability to give insight into the data organisations have on their networks, advise on best practice to protect data and then implement strategies around backup, archiving and disaster recovery. Data is searchable through an intuitive console making compliance simple and achievable for all organisations protecting data through the Backup Pro Platform.

As travel and expense (T&E) management solutions have improved, the expectations of the end user are higher than ever before. Business travellers want a seamless experience and you want better visibility, increased compliance, and reduced spend.
Our research identified two types of people – Leaders and Followers. Leaders have most of their spending under management, have increased compliance to company policies and approve expense reports more quickly. Followers are lagging behind.
At Concur, we receive a lot of questions about the best way to audit expense claims. Often the approaches to audit vary greatly by industry and company culture.
It doesn’t have to be confusing. In this report, we hope to provide a clear perspective that can help every business identify ways to improve their audit process.
Directed at cloud architecting concerns, this paper covers streamlining complexity at scale, knowing infrastructure state, and using easily repeatable patterns that bolster security, compliance, and disaster recovery. Get this white paper now.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a significant step change for data protection across EU member states. The EU GDPR also brings with it serious implications for organisations who suffer a breach. People will always make mistakes – and in busy and stressful workplaces such as banks and insurance firms the likelihood of this increases. Without the right processes and technologies in place to help avoid mistakes, sensitive client information remains at risk. This white paper provides financial services organisations with a four-step process to ensure compliance.
CFO’s need clear vision and technology to help them juggle new balls in the finance ecosystem: regulatory changes, artificial intelligence and blockchain. Finance must add these balls to its mix while still juggling its “traditional” responsibilities of internal controls, compliance and closing the books quickly.

Automated asset inventory might not be the first thing that comes to mind when considering cutting-edge security technologies. In the context of today’s distributed enterprise, however, it’s essential. Since the apps, systems, and services your users access to conduct business are already in the cloud, it makes sense to consider looking to cloud-based technologies to keep track of them all.
For the security and compliance professional, it’s critical to have access to a reliable and accurate asset inventory, especially when investigating security incidents and verifying and demonstrating compliance.
It’s not easy being today’s CISO or CIO. With the advent of cloud computing, Shadow IT, and mobility, the risk surface area for enterprises has increased dramatically, while IT budgets have shrunk and skilled cyber security talent is virtually impossible to find.
Thankfully, the CIS Top 20 Critical Controls provides a pragmatic approach, offering prioritized guidance on the important steps for implementing basic cyber hygiene practices. With the CIS Top 20 Critical Security Controls, CISOs now have a blueprint for reducing risk and managing compliance.
By automating each of these controls, CISOs enable their information security teams to do much more with less, essentially operationalizing good cyber hygiene.
Despite increasingly complex data center environments, IT is expected to provide business owners with faster service, higher reliability, and greater agility than ever before – all within a tight budget. It is impossible to meet these goals with manual IT processes. However, EMA research shows that IT Process Automation (ITPA) helps achieve these goals, delivering annual savings of $500,000 on staff costs alone, and 64 hours of additional uptime per year – plus improved resource utilization, security and compliance, problem response times, and agility.
