“Convergex takes a great deal of pride in making its clients’ interests and service needs of top priority,” says CIO Ann Neidenbach. “We like to tackle the industry’s toughest challenges—from complex trades to complex business solutions. Since regulation changes in 2008, there’s been a proliferation of places to trade. In the US alone, there are over 50 light pool (LIT) and dark markets. This makes it incredibly expensive, complicated, and very difficult for our customers to find best execution. They’re seeking liquidity and trying to figure out the best place to fill their orders. We’re trying to simplify that for them. “Convergex historically had consisted of several different affiliated companies, which meant that we had silos of trading systems, technology solutions and data. As a result, it was difficult to understand the revenue and profitability for each client across our businesses.” “My number one objective is to help us improve operational efficiencies, and I’m doing that in
The biggest headache for most payment operations teams is cost control — and a large part of it comes from fraud management:
Investigation teams waste large amounts of time just assembling the data needed to make decisions.
Detection engines are always playing catchup with the latest fraud patterns.
Ever changing regulations increase the time and cost required to reach compliance and meet audit standards.
Given their scope and impact, replacing core fraud systems is not an option for most firms. But instead of replacing them, you can improve the investigative process with augmented investigation, and improve the detection process by enhancing current systems.
This whitepaper describes three ways financial services firms can use TIBCO solutions to lower the cost of investigations through faster results, reduce fraud losses through better detection, and simplify audit and regulatory compliance through centralized access to information.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and no need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
A world class IT organization needs to be better than even the regulators require – and good IT governance doesn't have to tie the IT department up in red tape. Judicious application of IT best practices, frameworks and methodologies can help achieve this, based on an accurate picture of the IT environment, at which point regulatory compliance becomes a happy side effect. Find out how you can have an up-to-date true view of your infrastructure on a daily basis – not just at a point in time by reading this white paper.

Businesses are experiencing a dramatic increase in spam and email-based attacks. These assaults not only hurt employee productivity, they consume valuable IT staff time and infrastructure resources. These threats can also expose organizations to data leaks, compliance issues and legal risks.
Trend Micro's SaaS email security solution blocks spam, viruses, phishing, and other email threats before they touch your network, helping you reclaim IT staff time, end-user productivity, bandwidth, mail server storage and cpu capacity. Optional content filtering enforces compliance and helps prevent data leaks.
Information technology (IT) security is indispensable to an organization's ability to conduct business and achieve its objectives. Security requirements affect almost every business process and system, and successful security measures help protect a business’ brand value, stakeholder confidence, risk management strategies, and compliance status. Requirements vary among industries, geographies, and regions, but the need to protect privacy, retain important data, and facilitate e-discovery are common to all. This paper provides an overview of the regulatory landscape and identifies steps to take for defining a flexible compliance strategy.
Protecting individual and financial data, retaining data, and meeting e-discovery requirements are common compliance requirements across geographies and industries. Finding accurate, usable, and cost-effective solutions for meeting these requirements can make the difference between achieving compliance goals or leaving the organization vulnerable through unsecured use of sensitive data. Trend Micro Data Protection solutions for endpoint data leak protection, email encryption, and email archiving help organizations meet their compliance requirements – easily and cost-effectively.
Simply deploying a security solution cannot guarantee meeting every Payment Card Industry (PCI) requirement in full. This whitepaper discusses the challenges of PCI compliance and how security information and event management (SIEM) provides the data visibility, log management, end-point security and active response needed to demonstrate and meet each of the 12 PCI compliance requirements.
It’s widely accepted that Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems are excellent tools for regulatory compliance, log management and analysis, trouble-shooting and forensic analysis. What’s surprising to many is that this technology can play a significant role in actively defending networks. This whitepaper explains precisely how real-time analysis, combined with in-memory correlation, and automated notification and remediation capabilities can provide unprecedented network visibility, security and control.
This white paper discusses the mot critical compliance concerns for small and midsize businesses, from potential workplace litigation issues and benefit regulation mistakes to lack of HR expertise within the company and onboarding errors. Solutions are offered as well.
