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.

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.

The Oakley Union Elementary School District in California has a long track record of providing
quality education to children living in Oakley. Operating seven schools at different locations
around the city, the school district handles large amounts of data. As an educational institute,
data needs to be properly protected in order to preserve student records and other vital
The data backup configuration that was being used by the school district was inefficient and
costly, and was no longer able to meet data backup demands. The school district commenced
a search for a new solution, and after a careful selection process it decided to adopt Infortrend's iSCSI-host ESVA solution.

As the healthcare industry continues to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and greater coordination of care through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater to use technology to truly improve how healthcare professionals interacts with patients. However, growing dependence on your network for everything from medical records to billing information can also mean that healthcare networks hold greater amounts of data than ever before. This makes them a tempting target for hackers.
In this era of digital transformation, business and IT leaders across all industries are looking for ways to easily and cost-effectively unlock the value of enterprise data and use it to deliver new customer experiences while fueling business growth. The digital economy is changing the way organizations gather information, gain insights, reinvent their businesses and innovate both quickly and iteratively.
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.
A solid information integration and governance program must become a natural part of big data projects, supporting automated discovery, profiling and understanding of diverse data sets to provide context and enable employees to make informed decisions. It must be agile to accommodate a wide variety of data and seamlessly integrate with diverse technologies, from data marts to Apache Hadoop systems. And it must automatically discover, protect and monitor sensitive information as part of big data applications.

The outcome of any big data analytics project, however, is only as good as the quality of the data being used. As big data analytics solutions have matured and as organizations have developed greater expertise with big data technologies he quality and trustworthiness of the data sources themselves are emerging as key concerns. This paper explores the link between good information governance and the outcomes of big data analytics projects and takes a look at IBM's StoredIQ solution.
With organizations keeping larger and larger quantities of data the question will come up that given dropping storage costs, does uncontrolled data growth even matter? It does matter, and in this IBM publication featuring Gartner research you will learn about this ever growing problem and ways for information managers to address solutions.
The benefits of moving data to the cloud are touted everywhere, but doing so without an information governance plan in place can cause more problems than it solves. Information governance (IG) is increasingly cited as one of the top five initiatives for companies to tackle over the next two years.
Analytics has permeated, virtually, every department within an organization. It’s no longer a ‘nice to have’. It’s an organizational imperative. HR, specifically, collects a wealth of data; from recruiting applications, employee surveys, performance management data and it sits in systems that remain largely untapped. This data can help drive strategic decisions about your workforce. Analytic tools have, historically, been difficult to use and required heavy IT lifting in order to get the most out of them. What if an analytics system learned and continue to learn as it experienced new information, new scenarios, and new responses. This is referred to as Cognitive Computing and is key to providing an analytics system that is easy to use but extremely powerful.
