Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cisco TrustSec software-defined segmentation. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Cisco on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with TrustSec, Forrester interviewed four customers that had deployed TrustSec. The TrustSec software-defined segmentation solution simplifies the provisioning and management of highly secure access to network services and applications. Unlike access control mechanisms that work on network topology, TrustSec policies use logical grouping. Highly secure access is consistently maintained even as resources are moved in mobile and virtualized networks. A more detailed description of TrustSec is available on the Cisco TrustSec Overview page in this document.
Every user’s first interaction with your website begins with a series of DNS queries. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a distributed internet database that maps human-readable names to IP addresses, ensuring users reach the correct website when entering a URL. DNS mappings are maintained in special-purpose servers called DNS nameservers. When a user enters your company’s URL, a DNS query is routed to a DNS nameserver containing the address mappings for your company’s internet domain.
The largest national multiline insurance had built a repository of Insurance policies (P&C and Life Insurance) on Microfilm and Microfiche in early 90’s, as a preservation strategy. They were grappling with issues as this technology became outdated over time:
• Risk of losing their only source of data for Insurance policies and corresponding communication, need to improve data availability and speed of claims evaluation
• Compliance issues, need of a WORM (write once read many) storage compliant with FINRA regulations, where data should be encrypted when at rest
• Total cost for digitization compared to 10-12 years of support left to maintain insurance policies was not very encouraging
• Required a low cost, cloud-based, FINRA-compliant document management solution which could provide quick access to stored data

High-priority big data and analytics projects often target
customer-centric outcomes such as improving customer loyalty
or improving up-selling. In fact, an IBM Institute for Business
Value study found that nearly half of all organizations with active
big data pilots or implementations identified customer-centric
outcomes as a top objective (see Figure 1).1 However, big data
and analytics can also help companies understand how changes
to products or services will impact customers, as well as address
aspects of security and intelligence, risk and financial management,
and operational optimization.
Cloud-based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain competitive advantage in their industries.
However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be challenged to reconcile their legacy on-premises data with new third-party cloud-based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.
Firms face loss of Intellectual property (IP) and breaches of sensitive data as a result of account takeover (ATO). Risk-based authentication RBA plays an important role in the identity and access management (IAM) and risk mitigation of ATO across a variety of user populations (employee-facing [B2E] users, partners, clients, and consumer/citizen-facing users).
Web applications are often the most vulnerable part of a company’s infrastructure and yet are typically given direct paths to the internet, thus leaving these vulnerabilities exposed. IBM commissioned Tolly to evaluate IBM Security Access Manager for its Web protection effectiveness and performance as well as its identity federation, risk management and mobile one-time password capabilities. Tolly found that IBM Security Access Manager provided effective, high-performance threat protection while conveniently providing identity federation features and flexible risk-based access options.
This technology profile examines how IT decision makers’ expectations and approaches are evolving to address increasing demands for higher levels of IT availability from their organizations and clients.

The increased mobility of the workforce is changing the way we work. Business users want the flexibility to share and collaborate on content that drives their business while IT needs to ensure the security of that data, no matter where it goes. An effective enterprise collaboration solution must consider people, processes and technologies to be effective, but where to begin?
This comprehensive Buyer’s Guide offers guidance on how to develop your organization’s requirements with regard to:
• Risk management – avoiding data breaches and loss of information that can result in non-compliance
• Business productivity - allowing for secure collaboration while enabling teams to work anywhere on any device
• IT efficiency - supporting the full breadth of external business content requirements while integrating with existing applications and protocols
The sponsor named below commissioned Ardent Partners to write this report. While the report topic In 2015, collaboration is the name of the game in procurement and frequently entails working with key internal stakeholders (like line-of-business managers and legal departments) or preferred suppliers to drive greater value through sourcing and procurement. For Chief Procurement Officers ("CPOs") and other supply management leaders, collaboration has taken on many new and innovative forms over the years, causing these executives to leverage new (and, in some cases, existing) processes, relationships, and technologies to enhance compliance, decrease risk, and increase savings. One such business process, contract management, has been reborn with digital, automated features that can shift the way procurement teams collaborate, mitigate risk, drive performance, and realize greater savings for the enterprise.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet most enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints.
Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile feet is ineffective.
Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile specifc security. To encourage this evolution, Lookout developed the Mobile Risk Matrix. Its purpose is to help security organizations understand the spectrum of risk on mobile devices and to provide data that demonstrates the prevalence of mobile risk.
The Impact of CECL and Financial Institution Readiness
When it comes to CECL compliance, top financial consultants agree that extensive amounts of historical data, including different lengths of portfolio histories, will be needed. In addition, this research reveals that a majority of financial institutions do not understand how their risk management methodology needs to change. Nor do they comprehend the impacts of the changes that will need to be made to calculate Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL).
This represents a significant opportunity for top-tier consultancies to provide valuable thought leadership and guidance now, before financial institutions find themselves scrambling to meet the new standard. Learn more in our survey results."
"In today’s ever-evolving lending landscape where loan quality and risk management challenge profitability and the customer experience, technology may be the key to thriving – both now and in the future. Winning financial services institutions will be the ones that transform their business models to place loan quality and risk management at the center of their operations.
To facilitate continuous life-of-loan management, inclusive of the requisite data transparency and audit trails that support loan quality and loss mitigation, these institutions will implement and automate a loan completion process. Such a process will manage data quality and access to loan data and documents throughout origination, servicing and sale on the secondary market."
For the past decade, financial institutions have created sophisticated digital platforms for consumers to access, save, share and interact with their financial accounts. As sophisticated as these digital platforms have become, cyber criminals continue to pose an ever-present risk for everyone – from individual consumers to large corporations
