Whether it’s for business or education, entertainment or shopping, nearly every financial transaction, phone call or text, movie download or Internet search either now takes place or is recorded in a data center. With nearly everyone’s professional and personal lives dependent upon a healthy ecosystem of data centers, it is only natural that data centers are now targeted by thieves, spies and others maliciously seeking to cause damage or to steal the information contained within a data center.
GDPR has prompted banks to re-evaluate their data protection policies. Going beyond pure compliance can help establish consumer trust as a point of differentiation.

The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.
To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support.
At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
Companies typically begin with a
basic approach to sales tax: figure out the requirements of the state
in which they’re headquartered, register with that state, and start collecting sales tax from customers in that state. That approach may work for a while,
but as your business expands into new states (whether you have a physical presence there or not), the risk of non-compliance with sales tax becomes significant.
Smart finance leaders know they need to have a sales tax
compliance strategy before they start getting notices from state tax authorities.

2017 and 2018 were not easy years to be a CIO or CISO, and 2019 isn’t showing any signs of being easier. With so many career-ending-level data breaches in 2017 (e.g., Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, to name a few) and with the stronger regulatory requirements worldwide, CIOs/CISOs have a corporate responsibility to rethink their approach to data security. Regulatory compliance aside, companies have a responsibility to their customers and shareholders to protect data, and minimize its exposure not only to external attackers but also to employees. The most common method of data breach in 2017 was a phishing email sent to a company’s internal employees (See 2017 Data Breach Investigation Report), This makes employees unwillingly complicit in the data breach. Over 80% of successful cyberattacks have a critical human element that enabled them. The average employee who opens the innocent-looking attachment or link, is unintentionally jeopardizing a company’s data. While there is no 100% protection, th

A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade.
More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome.
But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous.
This white paper will discuss:
• The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management
• Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance
• The cost of different contractor management systems
• How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain
On January 23, 2019, OSHA put into effect its 2019 Annual Adjustment that raised the penalties of violation by approximately 2.5% over the 2015 revised amounts. The consequences of non-compliance with OSHA regulations extend beyond the financial penalties imposed by the regulatory authority, with the biggest risk that an organization runs is that of reputational damage. In this whitepaper you’ll learn:
• The most cited occupational hazards over the last year
• How to be proactive in preventing occupational hazards in your workplace
• The importance of pre-qualifying third party contractors in order to mitigate risk in your organization
11 ways to identify the best supplier verification partner for your organization.
Third-party supplier qualification vendors typically offer a combination of technology and service – but they are not all created equal. This guide will help you compare the features to look for in a technology platform, the kinds of services provided, and how to evaluate a third-party supplier qualification partner to meet your needs.
It is most suited to safety, procurement, compliance, risk management, operations, and other professionals evaluating a third-party vendor to help manage their supplier qualification program.
Skilled IT teams understand that one cloud does not fit all. Compliance issues may demand that some data be held internally. Budget-imposed total cost of ownership (TCO) limits may push other data out to public clouds. Hence, a scalable multi-cloud infrastructure becomes imperative.
This whitepaper addresses key questions commonly raised by CIOs considering the move to multi-cloud. Further, it sheds light on how Intel® technologies such as the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory can help boost your cloud credentials.

Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily.
Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, notably the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the EU, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents.
For US banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer protections, which financial organizations must also uphold.

When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider
the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions
along the way that can help or hinder progress.
For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies
to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and
languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order
to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations
also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest
In addition, given the steep learning curve in cloud development, con
The European Union’s new regulatory framework for data protection laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), became enforceable on 25 May, 2018. Under GDPR, organisations have new obligations to improve the security and privacy practices for the personal data they collect and use. With these new obligations comes the potential for heavier fines and penalties. Fortunately, Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help guide your organisation toward compliance under the new requirements. Take advantage of our services, resources, and experts as you navigate these changes.

Securing cloud environments is different from securing traditional data centers and endpoints.
The dynamic nature of the cloud requires continuous assessment and automation to avoid
misconfigurations, compromises, and breaches.
It can also be difficult to gain complete visibility across dynamic and rapidly changing cloud
environments — limiting your ability to enforce security at scale. On top of these challenges, cloud
governance is critical to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and security policies as
Because cloud deployments are not just implemented once and left untouched, organizations need
to consider how to integrate security into their CI/CD pipeline and software development lifecycle.
Implementing a security solution that addresses cloud challenges requires deep security and cloud
expertise that organizations often do not have.
Once in the cloud, organizations manage and create environments via automation, adapt their
workloads to changes by automa
While monitoring is critical for any business, it is especially imperative for highly regulated
industries such as healthcare. With patient data to protect and regulatory standards to meet,
you need to make sure your teams are building solutions that comply. If you’re not compliant,
you need to be able to quickly remediate issues, so you can still get your products out to
market and deliver better patient care.
Fulfilling the security and compliance obligations within the AWS Shared Responsibility Model is critical as organizations shift more of their infrastructure to the cloud. Most infrastructure and application monitoring solutions haven’t caught up to meet these new requirements, forcing IT and security teams to resort to traditional monitoring strategies that don’t allow for innovation and growth.
