This paper outlines the five simple steps you can take to help prevent sensitive information leakage from your organization, while keeping up with the rapidly evolving regulatory environment. The average employee sends and receives about 29,000 emails per year. One in every 20 of those emails contains “risky” data – from sensitive attachments to social security numbers to protected health information to valuable corporate secrets that set your organization apart. All of this risky data can become toxic to your company if it’s hacked or suffers a breach – causing reputational damage, customer loss, heavy fines, and decreased competitive edge. SilverSky offers a game-changing Email Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution, run on IBM SoftLayer, which brings content-aware policy capabilities normally reserved for complex enterprise DLP solutions.

With the massive growth of data from the Internet of Things (IOT) to collaboration to compliance, users are demanding low-cost, flexible, easy to scale, and simple to manage data center storage solutions. Software-defined object storage delivers on these demands by capitalizing on industry standard x86 infrastructure and storage technologies to deploy more economic and manageable storage solutions compared to legacy storage architectures.
Cloudian HyperStore is an example of the new breed of software-designed storage. Cloudian HyperStore allows companies to build their own public or private cloud storage infrastructure including enterprise IT organizations, cloud service providers, or cloud hosting providers. This document gathers the essential information about a scale-out storage reference architecture and a real-world example from the Cloudian support organization that uses the Cloudian HyperStore® appliances that are powered by Lenovo hardware.
In the last few years there have been radical changes in the ways organizations operate and people work. Explosion of data, increased mobile demands, and the globalization of business in general are making 24/7 access to people and information the norm. Sophisticated cyber attacks are requiring robust systems security designed to counter new threats. And velocity is now essential when delivering new IT services.

The tokenization of sensitive data is a key component in the ensuring of payment system security. Chief Information Security Officers at card acceptors and payment processors should use this Market Guide to choose the most appropriate products for their tokenization projects.
Cloud has revolutionized computing from the desktop to the data center and, perhaps even more meaningfully, down to the mobile devices we work and play with. The cloud approach of scalable shared infrastructure has allowed customers to consider both purchasing and deploying information technology resources in more flexible, cost-effective ways. They’ve saved money and invested in only the capacity they needed and are enjoying the benefits of consolidated infrastructure. Virtualization has been at the epicenter of this revolution and has enabled racks of disparate hardware to become one. But the move to virtualization has not come without bumps in the road.

Whilst the levels of availability and security that are applied to data can be determined by the owner, the need for compliance is often enforced by governing regulatory bodies. However, not all data is the same. Information that is of high value to companies, but is not subject to regulatory pressures like the Data Protection Act, is often overlooked. This information can be of such high strategic value that its compromise could have major financial or public relations implications and possibly disastrous consequences for the company.

There are many case studies with real data extolling the benefits of cloud computing and virtualization - the twin forces behind the transformation of the way companies of all shapes and sizes 'do' computing. But to take part in this information revolution, it's critical to have the right underpinnings. That means not only upgrading the decade-old Windows Server 2003 operating system software that still drives more than 12 million servers, but also upgrading the underlying hardware to ensure you realize all the benefits the software can deliver. The combination Windows Server 2012 and the latest Intel Xeon based server hardware should be part of an IT strategy for companies and departments looking to modernize their IT infrastructure. This checklist will identify 10 of the top issues driving the need for server OS software and hardware upgrades.

For decades, the financial services industry has endured constant change
and uncertainty, from the depths of a financial crisis to widespread
regulation overhauls. With the advent of more advanced cybersecurity
threats, the industry has responded with rapid digital transformation to
remain competitive while also pushing the envelope. Today, managing
and mitigating cyber-related risks not only draws government scrutiny, but
increased consumer scrutiny as well, with longstanding brand reputations
anchored to institutions’ ability to protect its most sensitive data. In a
recent survey of Americans, financial information was considered by
consumers to be their most valuable personal information, worth even
more than personal or family photos and videos. For consumers, failing
to protect their data is a grave violation of trust, to the point where 72%
would consider leaving their current financial institution if their sensitive
information was taken hostage by ransomware.1

On the 13th February 2017, the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act was passed in the Australian
Parliament, introducing a mandatory notification regime. This bill commences on the 23rd February 2018 and will
require organisations to notify data subjects and regulators in the event of an “eligible” data breach.
An “eligible data breach” will occur where:
? There is unauthorised access to, or unauthorised disclosure of, the information; and
? A reasonable person would conclude that the access or disclosure would be likely to result in serious harm to
any of the individuals to whom the information relates
The amended legislation provides greater clarity to Australian citizens about the privacy of their personal information
and will affect Australian companies as well as international organisations with Australian operations.
It also means that businesses must carefully think about the practical issues related to data breach responses

For both finance and HR, this separation is often driven by organizational obstacles, disparate systems and data sources, regulatory uncertainty, and a lack of complete visibility into the business. As Joseph Fanutti, CFO of Bill Gosling Outsourcing, says of his own organization’s challenges, “Finance operated its own silo, HR its own, operations its own. There was a lack of consistency in terms of how we viewed the business.” He recalls, “Numbers were always challenged, no one could agree on metrics, and people couldn’t agree on what actions to take going forward.”
If this situation sounds familiar, that’s because it’s commonplace across organizations the world over. Strategic uncertainty and incomplete data are symptoms of a larger problem: a lack of unification among finance, HR, and operations teams. Managers need to make financial and people decisions in tandem, yet traditional systems store this information independently. This separation creates multiple versions of the same u

Much has been written about Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) and its potential to herald a new era of open banking where banks no longer have a monopoly on payment services. Instead they will be forced to provide full access to customer accounts to third parties looking to provide financial services of their own, on top of banks’ existing data and infrastructure.
All of this could prove to be true, just not on January 13th 2018, the deadline for national governments to transpose PSD2 into law. This is because there is still so much to be decided and clarified. The European Banking Authority’s longawaited regulatory technical standards (RTS) on strong customer authentication (SCA) were issued in March 2017 but missing some of the finer details, such as the methods to remotely access customer data and account information and the measures around the use of application programming interfaces (APIs) and screen-scraping.
The banking industry is being pressured by two new forces simultaneously: an increasingly stringent regulatory environment that requires new levels of data governance, and a shift to digital business processes that introduces new, nimble competitors and empowers customers in new ways.
This E-Book is intended to provide information and insights on how banking executives involved in digital transformation can successfully navigate in this new and quickly evolving landscape.
