Business applications today have become the primary interface between a company and its customers. And, there has simultaneously been tremendous innovation in the area of business intelligence, which can unlock a personalized experience for each and every user - and help support key corporate objectives to increase revenue, strengthen customer loyalty and establish and maintain a high-quality brand in the marketplace. For technology managers, then, this is an exciting time to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. But, the situation also exposes the intense risk we place on our IT applications because they now carry enormous organizational responsibility and significance. Companies that have implemented infrastructure management solutions from CA Technologies Report:
. Service desk calls by as much as 40%
. Reduction of IT management tools in use by 50%
. First-call closure rate improvement by a factor of three
. Mean-time-to-repair improvements of up to 50%
. Staff efficiency improvements of up to 43%
. An average return on investment in nine months or less
In May 2010, CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the financial impact and potential return on investment (ROI) that an organization might realize from implementing CA's Oblicore Guarantee solution. To determine the impact, Forrester examined the specific costs, benefits, flexibility, and risk elements that a CA customer, Catholic Health East (CHE), experienced over the past three years using the CA Oblicore Guarantee solution. From interviews conducted by Forrester, it was determined that CHE's use of CA's Oblicore Guarantee solution allowed for a significant redeployment of labor necessary to compile and distribute service-level management reports to its system office customers and enabled a similar labor cost avoidance associated with compiling and distributing reports to its hospitals or Regional Health Corporations (RHCs). Based on our interviews, Forrester projects a three-year, risk-adjusted total net present value (NPV) of $173,420, representing the net costs and benefits attributed to using the CA Oblicore Guarantee solution versus CHE's previous manual processes used in service management reporting. (See details below in Costs, Benefits, Flexibility, and Risks sections). In addition, the risk-adjusted ROI was a favorable 45%, and the payback period was within 20 months.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

The time has come for enterprise risk management to change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal and professional lives, yet most enterprises remain focused on traditional PC endpoints.
Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile feet is ineffective.
Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile specifc security. To encourage this evolution, Lookout developed the Mobile Risk Matrix. Its purpose is to help security organizations understand the spectrum of risk on mobile devices and to provide data that demonstrates the prevalence of mobile risk.

Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better. Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before the competition is better.
In the mid-2000s, Financial Services was the first industry to strongly adopt data virtualization as a disruptive, new technology for accessing and integrating more data, faster and more easily than ever before.
Buy and sell side groups at the largest institutions led the charge, followed soon after by risk management and compliance units. The leading mutual fund providers, along with hedge funds, led the next wave of adoption. In recent years, commercial banks and insurers have accelerated their use of data virtualization. And today, analyst firms such as Gartner, Inc. and Forrester project continued data virtualization adoption for both first-time use at new firms and expanded deployments at existing sites.

Streamlining the close process is the new imperative for many financial executives in order to keep pace with the speed of information coming from various mediums. When financial information is released weeks after the period end, the risk is that this information is perceived and received as old news and less relevant for management decision making. This amplifies the perception of the finance department acting as the “back office” and just another cost center inside the organization.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution

Email is the backbone of today’s corporate business processes. It lives as the primary communication vehicle internally between employees and externally with customers, vendors, partners and investors. It is arguably today’s most pervasive and critical business application within which is stored the most valuable business content. To protect this vital information while working to eliminate risk, lower management costs and improve business insight, companies require a comprehensive email archiving solution. This solution should not only work to effectively retain email information in a searchable repository, the best email archiving solutions also provide a smarter approach to collecting, retaining and accessing data so that it can deliver true business value.
Research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by Oracle,
provides answers. The results show that a proactive security strategy backed by a fully
engaged C-suite and board of directors reduced the growth of cyber-attacks and
breaches by 53% over comparable firms. These findings were compiled from responses
by 300 firms, across multiple industries, against a range of attack modes and over a
two-year period from February 2014 to January 2016.
The lessons are clear. As cyber-attackers elevate their game, the response must be an
enterprise solution. Only C-suites and boards of directors marshal the authority and
resources to support a truly enterprise-wide approach. In sum, proactive cyber-security
strategies, supported by senior management, can cut vulnerability to cyber-attack in half.

Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.

As of May 2017, according to a report from The Depository Trust &
Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which provides financial transaction and data processing services for the global financial industry, cloud computing has reached a tipping point1. Today, financial services companies can benefit from the capabilities and cost efficiencies of the cloud. In October of 2016, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) and the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) jointly announced enhanced cyber risk management standards for financial institutions in an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR)2. These proposed standards for enhanced cybersecurity are aimed at protecting the entire financial system, not just the institution. To meet these new standards, financial institutions will require the right cloud-based network security

How are you balancing strong security and the customer experience? The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirement is an opportunity to properly balance privacy and the user experience. Those who embrace it will distinguish themselves as a trustworthy and respectful custodian of their users’ data. Personal data plays an increasingly important part in providing the kind of appealing experience that brings users back time and time again. But, there’s a balance to be struck. Strong security is the best tool available for navigating the dichotomy between an appealing user experience and the risk posed by data breach; it allows the collection and management of personal data in line with the user’s expectations, and without jeopardizing the trust that is so important between them and you.
Complexity, globalization and digitalization are just some of the elements at play in the risk landscape—and data is becoming a core part of understanding and navigating risk.
How do modern finance leaders view, navigate and manage enterprise risk with data? Dun & Bradstreet surveyed global finance leaders across industries and business types. Here are the top trends that emerged from the study:
1. The Enterprise Risk & Strategy Disconnect—Finance leaders are using data and managing risk programs, but over 65% of finance leaders say there’s missing link between risk and strategy.
2. The Risks of the Use and Misuse of Data—Up to 50% of the data used to manage modern risk is disconnected. Only 15% of leaders are confident about the quality of their data.
3. Risky Relationships—Only 20% of finance leaders say the data they use to manage risk is fully integrated and shared.
