As financial services firms embrace digital, they need business assurance strategies that extend conventional quality assurance methods to address the nuances of emerging technologies such as blockchain and advanced artificial intelligence (AI). At the same time, they also need assurance that their strategies can accommodate changes in the ever-shifting regulatory landscape wrought by
the acceleration of digital within the core of their businesses.
This white paper explores how financial firms can excel in digital by holistically addressing the quality of business processes built on disruptive technologies while assuring compliance to regulations.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.
As the use of cloud solutions in government increases, both business and IT leaders are recognizing that the safety and success of their business depend on finding ways to take full advantage of cloud innovation while ensuring consistent service levels, data management and privacy, and user experiences. Hybrid IT management includes aligning the organization around service levels, cost control, security, and IT-enabled innovation.
Big Data is not just a big buzzword. Government agencies have been collecting large amounts of data for some time and analyzing the data collected to one degree or another. Big data is a term that describes high volume, variety and velocity of information that inundates an organization on a regular basis. But it’s not the amount of data that’s important. It’s what organizations do with the data that matters. Big data can be analyzed for insights that lead to better decisions and better services.
IoT has proven its value in the private sector. Ever since the 1980’s, US manufacturing has undergone a dramatic transition based on IoT. Machines that where once manually calibrated and maintained began to be controlled by specialized computers. These computers were able to quickly recalibrate tools which allowed manufactures to produce smaller batches of parts, but were also often locked into proprietary computing languages and architectures.
Too often we hear that people want to move everything to the cloud. Unfortunately cloud is not the easy button, and it will not fix
every problem that you have with IT today. We have seen a large number of customers who do the math after moving to the cloud only to realize that it was more expensive to run in an offsite cloud than onsite IT. These customers then move away from offsite cloud for workloads that never should have left the building. The cloud in its many varieties is a good tool that can help organizations, but it needs to be thought out. This document is intended to help you move the right workloads to the right clouds in the best way possible and avoid the yoyo effect of moving twice and paying for the privilege of the experience.

The NSA’s Information Assurance Directorate left many people scratching their heads in the winter
of 2015. The directive instructed those that follow its guidelines to postpone moving from RSA
cryptography to elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) if they hadn’t already done so.
“For those partners and vendors that have not yet made the transition to Suite B elliptic curve
algorithms, we recommend not making a significant expenditure to do so at this point but instead to
prepare for the upcoming quantum-resistant algorithm transition.”
The timing of the announcement was curious. Many in the crypto community wondered if there had been
a quantum computing breakthrough significant enough to warrant the NSA’s concern. A likely candidate
for such a breakthrough came from the University of New South Wales, Australia, where researchers
announced that they’d achieved quantum effects in silicon, which would be a massive jump forward for
Enterprise data center clients operate in some of the most complex and regulated environments in the world. These clients need assurance that their partners are up to the challenge of meeting their needs and operating effectively within a dynamic ecosystem. For the client-focused data center solutions provider, this presents a perfect opportunity to differentiate its services from those of other solution providers who simply provide five 9’s. See how they manage the regulatory landscape.
Les technologies d'intelligence artificielle telles que l'apprentissage machine et le Deep Learning permettent d'obtenir des informations et de la précision à deux marques majeures dans des secteurs très différents : la santé et les assurances.
Des théories sur les futures incidences de l'intelligence artificielle (IA) sur les entreprises et la société vont florissantes. Mais la réalité du terrain aujourd'hui pour les entreprises et les dirigeants appliquant des technologies comme l'apprentissage machine et l'apprentissage profond à leurs enjeux majeurs est déjà très enthousiasmante. Les modèles de fonctionnement sont refondés en se basant sur les informations obtenues de puissantes capacités cognitives. De nouveaux produits et services améliorent l'expérience client, voire la condition humaine. D'une façon très concrète et significative, l'IA change le monde pour le meilleur.
Extended Validation (EV) certificates were launched in January 2007. EV certificates are an effort to define a standard for a high assurance SSL/TLS certificate and create a new trust foundation. The EV Guidelines are managed by the leading browsers and certification authorities (CAs) through the CA/Browser Forum, and have been since launch.
Research in the SSL/TLS security market points to a growing need for securing web applications with high assurance certificates issued by a reputable Certification Authority (CA). Organizations want to avoid the negative publicity associated with security breaches and customers want to be assured of data protection when making online transactions.
The need for authentication and assurance is great and options are few; therefore, we have come to rely on encrypted SSL/TLS certificates for almost every new application, appliance, device and cloud service.
L’infrastructure Cloud, vous avez dû vous y mettre au début en prenant beaucoup de précaution… Vous avez probablement limité votre périmètre à un provisionnement rapide ou à une diminution des coûts matériels ou opérationnels.
Mais comment résister aux avantages de cette technologie ? Le cloud continue d’évoluer et de gagner en crédibilité dans tous les secteurs d’activité. Aujourd’hui, nous attendons de tous les systèmes d’entreprise qu’ils intègrent les avantages du cloud.
All’inizio, probabilmente avrai scelto di adottare l’infrastruttura cloud con una certa prudenza, limitandoti a un approvvigionamento rapido o alla riduzione dei costi operativi o delle macchine.
Ma come resistere ai vantaggi di questo nuovo modo di fruire della tecnologia? Il cloud continua a evolvere e a conquistare credibilità in tutti i settori. Oggi, ci aspettiamo che ogni sistema aziendale possa beneficiare dei vantaggi del cloud.
I progressi nel campo digitale rivoluzionano in profondità il nostro modo di lavorare, introducendo innovazioni nei nostri uffici praticamente ogni giorno. Queste tecnologie hanno alzato il livello delle aspettative, costringendo le aziende a operare con un'agilità senza precedenti.
Questi cambiamenti sono grandi opportunità, ma purtroppo ci imbattiamo anche in nuovi ostacoli che possono intralciare la nostra marcia verso il successo, come la necessità di innovare rapidamente, di minimizzare i costi e di reagire prontamente alle pressioni della concorrenza.
La tecnologia IaaS, un tempo vista con scetticismo da molti responsabili IT, viene oggi adottata da molte aziende, che trasferiscono sul cloud i workload e accantonano l’architettura locale che prima ritenevano indispensabile.
Nonostante i vantaggi in termini di prestazioni, flessibilità e opportunità di innovazione sperimentati dagli utenti che già hanno adottato questa tecnologia, alcune aziende ritardano la migrazione per paura del cambiamento.
Les avancées du numérique révolutionnent la manière dont nous travaillons, en apportant des innovations de façon permanente dans notre quotidien de travail. Ces technologies très prisées ont renforcé les attentes, obligeant les organisations à développer l'agilité métier à des niveaux sans précédent.
Même si les opportunités annoncées sont prometteuses, nous sommes confrontés à de nouveaux freins qui peuvent faire obstacle à la réussite, comme la nécessité d'innover rapidement, de minimiser les coûts et de répondre rapidement aux pressions exercées par la concurrence.
Pour réussir dans le contexte concurrentiel actuel, les entreprises doivent se liberer des limites inhérentes à leurs infrastructures informatiques existantes. L’époque de l’achat de matériel et de la gestion d’énormes centres de données pour faire fonctionner les systèmes informatiques est en train de prendre fin. La gestion et la maintenance des infrastructures sont tout simplement trop coûteuses.
Digital developments are forever shaping the way we work, bringing new innovations through our office doors almost every day. These high-demand technologies have increased expectations, with organizations now having to drive business agility at unprecedented levels.
Although we’re presented with enormous opportunity, we also face new obstacles that can block the path to success; obstacles such as the need to innovate quickly, keep costs down, and actively respond to competitive pressures.
