The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.
Many industry experts advise financial services institutions (FSIs) to embrace digital transformation. At the heart of that mandate is the need to satisfy rising customer expectations for fast, secure, always-on services delivered seamlessly across all channels and devices. While it’s important to harness the digital technologies today’s customers turn to — especially when it comes to engaging the millennial generation — FSIs need to optimize web and mobile performance to deliver exceptional end-user experiences. Here are eight considerations.

The headwinds facing traditional and online retailers in 2017 are numerous and well documented. Chief among the challenges: a sustained assault on established business models driven by changing consumer behavior and the competitive might of e-commerce giant Amazon. Large big-box players, such as Walmart and Target, are responding to the threat - and embracing the opportunity of e-commerce - by boosting online spending by hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars annually.
Yet even the largest and most well-resourced players can’t
simply spend their way to success. Competing with Amazon
and adjusting to the changing demands of consumers
means taking a hard look at the engines driving e-commerce
and digital marketing operations, scouring for missed
opportunities, and investing in the technologies that will
fuel the innovations of tomorrow.

Social and business networking sites are changing the way people talk online. Sites like Facebook, MySpace and Bebo help friends stay in touch while LinkedIn and Plaxo mainly connect business users. They are very popular but present new challenges to IT managers. They seem to have come out of nowhere. For example, Facebook currently has 70m users, 40% of which are located in the US. The rapid growth of such sites is part of the problem. Companies risk being caught off guard. Learn how to protect your business from threats posed by online social networking in this 7 Step Guide for IT Managers.
The Internet has proven to be a vital communications medium for worldwide commerce, but as an open and unprotected global network it can also present a wide range of threats that can cripple any business organization. Several years ago, most Internet threats were relatively benign examples of a young adolescent’s technical expertise but over time they have evolved into increasingly sophisticated domestic and foreign attacks that are designed to capture financial, personal, or strategic business information. Threats now come in the form of deliberately malicious acts, and exploitative opportunities for hackers and/or organized crime. The impact is serious, and the landscape of victims is getting broader every day. In response, no organization can afford to have its networks remain unprotected.

Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone.
These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates.

Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks;
Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors;
How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.

With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.

This ExecBlueprint discusses how companies can address these risks through the development of a comprehensive risk management framework that incorporates both company policy to enforce standards for safe social media and technology use and technical controls to monitor activity. Although no single blueprint exists, the framework should be sufficiently robust to prevent most employees from clicking on suspicious links and posting confidential information— and contain damage caused by inevitable human error, before the story ends up in The New York Times.
