Advances in attacks on network security over the last few years have led to many high-profile compromises of enterprise networks and breaches of data security. A new attack is threatening to expand the potential for attackers to compromise enterprise servers and the critical data on them. Solutions are available, and they will require action by company officers and administrators. “SSLStrip” and related attacks were among the highlights of the July 2009 Black Hat show in Las Vegas. Researcher Moxie Marlinspike combined a number of discrete problems, not all related to SSL, to create a credible scenario in which users attempting to work with secure websites were instead sent to malicious fake sites.
Ethics and compliance officers have many opportunities to leverage the data in their hotline and incident management systems to improve their compliance programmes— and their organisational culture of ethics and respect. This year’s benchmarks point to several opportunities to increase programme effectiveness.
Hotline data that is carefully tracked, reviewed, benchmarked and presented with sufficient context often provides the early warning signs needed to detect, prevent and resolve problems. We at NAVEX Global hope that this report is helpful to your organisation and we welcome any feedback on these findings.

How much is the life of an employee worth? How much is the loss of a big toe? Or an index finger?
These are the questions that keep safety managers awake at night.
While there are no good answers, the only way to get a good night’s sleep is to ensure that your company is doing everything possible to make your company as safe as possible. Unfortunately, simply meeting OSHA standards isn’t good enough. Would you want to drive in a car that was deemed the “least” unsafe, or one that was a model of safety?
Make safety a priority by allocating yearly funding, finding the best trainers (whether external or internal), and empowering employees to work with managers to create easy-to-understand safety procedures and protocols. Encourage people to think first, act second, and consider safety protocols as not just a rote function, but an essential fact of daily practice that might just save their lives.

An employee’s first few days are critically important, not only because organizations need to get their new hire up to speed as soon as possible, but also because the initial days at a new job hold huge influence over an employee’s decision to stay with the company long term.
While onboarding has typically been geared toward new hires, organizations are now also onboarding transitional workers, to better prepare those moving into managerial or executive roles.
Human Capital Media — the research arm of Chief Learning Officer magazine — partnered with SilkRoad for the “2016 CLO Innovations in Onboarding Survey.” We examined best practices in onboarding to answer these common questions, and more:
• How do organizations define onboarding and how it fits into their overall strategy?
• Who is involved in the process and how does technology enhance onboarding efforts?
• What are examples of successful onboarding outcomes?

In a series of real-world examples, this eBook presents before-and-after scenarios that illustrate how deploying a mobile solution helped companies achieve their goals, and how the roles of safety professionals – from inspectors & technicians in the field, to safety officers and executives in the office – have evolved with mobile technology.
The eBook also highlights the recent trend among safety professionals to go beyond safety inspections and use technology to automatically dispatch remedial actions in real time and build ambitious preventative maintenance programs. This trend makes it possible to leapfrog current safety practices, and save additional lives.
