The more holistic view of risk a property underwriter can get, the better decisions they are likely to make. In order to build up a detailed picture of risk at an individual location, underwriters or agents at coverholders have, until now, had to request exposure analytics on single risks from their portfolio managers and brokers. Also, they had to gather supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones to look-ups on Google Maps.

Growth in new markets introduces new costs to
control, regulations to manage, and supply chain
complexities to solve.
Longer, more complicated cold chains mean that
collaboration with third party logistics providers
(3PLs) can help make the difference between
profitable simplicity and unmanageable complexity.
Companies are increasingly relying on their 3PLs
for services such as monitoring and intervention,
contingency planning, and cost control.
Reduce risk by improving packaging, visibility, and
establishing QA best practices.
Improved visibility, new tools, new monitoring
capabilities and appropriate packaging can also help
drive down costs for shippers.
One of the biggest challenges IT ops teams face is the lack of visibility across its infrastructure — physical, virtual and in the cloud. Making things even more complex, any infrastructure monitoring solution needs to not only meet the IT team’s needs, but also the needs of other stakeholders including line of business (LOB) owners and application developers.
For companies already using a monitoring platform like Splunk, monitoring blindspots arise from the need to prioritize across multiple departments. This report outlines a four-step approach for an effective IT operations monitoring (ITOM) strategy.

So you’re thinking about moving to the cloud. Which means you’ve got some new (and some old) security issues to think about.
Where do you start? What should you look for when you’re planning your cloud migration or expansion, and what features do you need to tick off your list when you compare partners for the project?
At AWS, we’ve worked with millions of cloud users in 190 countries, from all kinds of industries – large enterprise, start-ups, non-profits, education and government. Every organisation's needs are different, but we’ve identified the top features of any successful cloud security initiative. Here are six must-haves for cloud security confidence.
Databases tend to hold an organization’s most important information and power the most crucial applications. It only makes sense, then, to run them on a system that’s engineered specifically to optimize database infrastructure.
Yet some companies continue to run their databases on do-it-yourself (DIY) infrastructure, using
separate server, software, network, and storage systems. It’s a setup that increases risk, cost, complexity, and time spent deploying and managing the systems, given that it typically involves at least three different IT groups.
As deal complexity has risen, so too has customers' risk aversion and the number of stakeholders dedicated to a given purchase. The best companies build consensus among diverse groups by tapping into the right values and fostering an environment of collective learning.
The world is changing, and so are we. The e-commerce revolution continues to disrupt how goods and services are bought and sold, creating new demands and opportunities for our global logistics network. We’re making bold investments in advanced technologies to keep pace with this change, taking our integrated network to new levels of efficiency that translate into tangible sustainability benefits.ups.com/sustainability

Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies.
Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology.
But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business.
A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.

Another must have feature of any modern Availability solution is self-service restore. Self-service restore is essentially a delegation, or granting the task of restoring files within the guest OS to users that have administrative rights. In many organizations, there are users who are responsible for the applications running within the VMs. These application owners are the primary administrators for the files and folders within the VM — so why would they have to go to a backup administrator to simply restore a file? Self-service restore allows these applications owners to log into a portal, search through the content of the backups for their VMs only and perform any necessary restores of those files back to their original or new locations.

Rapid changes in technology and software, and the nearly universal shift to electronically stored information (ESI), has made eDiscovery more complex and expensive. In a movement to simplify and standardize their procedures—and dissolve some of the extra tensions surrounding litigation—many organizations are bringing phases of the eDiscovery process in house, in particular legal hold.
Among other benefits, Code42 eDiscovery simplifies legal hold management. Litigation preparation can be a large task crossing over many departments, but will consistently feature two main players: Legal and IT. This document focuses on those two groups, and aims to enable one to see the eDiscovery world through the point of view of one group—or the other. Read more to find out the details.

Cloud computing vendors and colocation data centers make every effort to maximize the scalability, efficiency and agility of their data centers. As a result, more and more of them are looking into replacing older, transformer-based centralized power protection schemes with distributed architectures in which uninterruptible power systems (UPSs) reside in the white space (or data hall).
This white paper describes the advantages of positioning UPSs in the white space as well as the essential qualities to look for in a white space-ready UPS.
There will be a ransomware attack on businesses every 14 seconds by the end of 2019 . Every 40 seconds, one of those attacks will prove successful , with devastating effects ranging from permanent loss of irreplaceable data to life-threatening interruptions to patient care. In years past, expert malware authors packaged up their know-how into costly exploit kits sold on the underground market. Cyber criminals had to recover high upfront costs before launching a campaign and realizing a profit. Today, ransomware-as a-service groups like Satan make it easier than ever before for would-be cyber criminals with minimal technical skills to launch attacks, offering free ransomware toolkits and hands-on help to manage campaigns and extort payments. Read our white paper to learn how CylancePROTECT® prevents Petya, Goldeneye, WannaCry, Satan, and many more from executing, with machine learning models dating back to September 2015, long before the ransomware first appeared in the wild.

Like other IT leaders, you know you have to modernize your IT infrastructure to become more productive, efficient, agile and competitive. So what's holding you back? Many organizations are still devoting anywhere from 60% to 80% of their time, energy, human resources and budget to supporting legacy systems rather than develop transformative solutions.
Our new eBook, Your 3-step roadmap to IT modernization, will help you align your approach to IT with the way your business works today — and the way you will work in the digital age:
• Increased mobility, multiple device formats and distributed workgroups
• Greater collaboration with outside organizations, including customers, suppliers and partners
• Essential enterprise risk management features such as compliance, legal, security and data governance
Here you'll learn the three stages of IT modernization — from realigning your infrastructure to updating business processes — so you take the right steps.
When evaluating single risks, underwriters and coverholders typically have to request exposure analytics from their portfolio managers and brokers, or gather their own supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones, through to lookups on Google Maps. But all this takes valuable time, requires multiple user licenses and can generate information that is inconsistent with the underlying modeling data at the portfolio level.
