More and more, software-based solutions determine lenders’ profitability. Traditional lenders will not survive in the small business loan market without a renewed tech-driven focus on reducing transaction costs, accelerating decision cycles, embracing tech-touch, and expanding risk management tools.
Organizations undergoing digital transformations are dealing with amplified concerns around risk and security, which isn’t surprising.
Ensuring visibility and accountability for compliance, security and governance while enabling flexibility for digital transformation requires a fresh and more tightly aligned approach to who—and now what in the form of applications, services, machines and things—are given the keys to the kingdom: privileged access.
Read this white paper to understand how the digital transformation journey requires thinking through a clear roadmap that spans multiple years, anticipating near- and long-term requirements from a privileged access management solution and ensuring scope and scale needs at a reasonable cost of ownership through the entire lifecycle.
As the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe prepare for Brexit (Britain’s exit from the European Union), information security experts are left wondering what this would mean to the security and risk management processes that have been put in place in the past and how they need to adjust to the emerging reality. This document discusses the impact of Brexit on privileged access management and what information security professionals may consider as immediate solutions to mitigate risks.
Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations
as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities
looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost
and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial
risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for
dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk
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.
Protecting PHI is not optional. Data security is so important in healthcare that fear of jeopardizing patient privacy and facing fines leads many providers to reject modern and more efficient cloud software. However, the facts tell a different story. Read this eye-opening e-book to get the facts on how the cloud can help your office provide better, more secure patient care.

Many small businesses rely on owners and other employees to take on HR responsibilities in addition to their “day jobs,” a role we call the ad hoc HR manager (aHRM). Although a common practice, using an aHRM can present unforeseen risks. Read the complete guide to risky ad hoc HR management to find out more.
Digital technology is creating change at a pace never seen before. Customers now expect speed, ease, choice and a personalised service. It makes customer experience key to success. And it sets merchants a challenge. To survive, and thrive, businesses need to stay agile in everything they do –including how they manage fraud. As the people who set the strategy that determines if an order is
accepted or not, fraud teams have a pivotal role to play in improving customer experience and reducing risk. This makes fraud management more than a back-office utility. It’s a way to differentiate your business and achieve a competitive advantage.
This is the question we put to three specialists from CyberSource – as well as Chris Monk from digital literacy agency Decoded. This report reflects their expert opinion, and explores:
• The changing landscape for businesses.
• The key challenges for fraud teams.
• How to develop an agile fraud solution
Among your primary responsibilities as a board member is providing advice on both business strategy and enterprise risk. A general understanding of risk management is essential when looking at cyber risk specifically. Ultimately, an enterprise should consider adding cybersecurity expertise to its board membership, but all members can benefit from increasing their understanding about how cyber risk affects corporate strategy and the overall enterprise risk profile. To provide effective strategic advice to company leadership on cyber risk, you must ask the right questions, including whether a company does ongoing cyber risk assessment and management, and how.
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.

The current business-enterprise climate demands robust connectivity and delivery in services. As IT executives continue to invest in integrated infrastructure, companies that remain committed to hardware-centric infrastructure are being left behind and subsequently are exposing their enterprises to risk and loss. Liabilities include time wastage and financial costs in the management and maintenance of legacy infrastructure, creating a deficit in executives’ energy when it comes to innovation and future planning.
VMware’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is a malleable, sophisticated solution which facilitates the vital transition from physical to virtualized storage solutions. HCI is the foundation for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) destined for leading enterprise operations.
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.
