Gartner reports that 75% to 80% of organizations are using some form of agile project management process.
Although agile project management has been around for many years, the way we adapt it has changed significantly, especially as project portfolio management (PPM) practices have evolved.
In today’s businesses, technology plays a crucial role in our success, but technology can also make things more uncertain. This uncertainty has given us the motive to be more flexible and requires a “think on your feet” mentality. For this reason, we've seen a big spike in Agile PPM over the last few years. So how do we continue to deliver stability and efficiency, the result of traditional style PPM, while also giving in to necessary risks that lead to innovation and competitive edge?
It’s simple: accept the value in each method, avoid the inevitable pains that may develop with segregation, and opt for a unified agile and traditional PPM model.

Security has become top of mind for CIOs, and CEOs. Encryption at rest is a piece of the solution, but not a big piece. Encryption over the network is another piece, but only a small piece. These and other pieces do not fit together well; they need to unencrypt and reencrypt the data when they move through the layers, leaving clear versions that create complex operational issues to monitor and detect intrusion.
Larger-scale high-value applications requiring high security often use Oracle middleware, including Java and Oracle database. Traditional security models give the data to the processors to encrypt and unencrypt, often many times. The overhead is large, and as a result encryption is used sparingly on only a few applications. The risk to enterprises is that they may have created an illusion of security, which in reality is ripe for exploitation.
The modern best-practice security model is an end-to-end encryption architecture. The application deploys application-led encryption s

How can you plan more certainty into your PR practice? Break down silos, hone
processes, and measure bottom-line business value.
Public relations is entering an era of unprecedented challenge — and unprecedented
opportunity. Digital technologies are rocking every boat, from consumer behaviors, to
B2B decision-making, to the nature and reputation of media itself.
Today, every discipline is being buffeted by continual change and performance
pressure. But the convergence of key trends poses a particular set of challenges for
Cloud investment continues to grow
over 20% annually as organizations are
looking for faster time to deployment,
scalability, reduced maintenance, and
lower cost. But there is one aspect
of cloud that consistently worries IT
and security professionals – how to
achieve high levels of security in the
cloud. As cloud adoption increases, the
fears of unauthorized access, stolen
identities, data and privacy loss, and
confidentiality and compliance issues
are rising right along with it.
This report has been produced by the

to explore how organizations are
responding to the security threats in the
cloud and what tools and best practices
IT cybersecurity leaders are considering
in their move to the cloud.
At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the
way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers.
Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard
AWS provides powerful controls to manage the security of software-defined infrastructure and
cloud workloads, including virtual networks for segmentation, DDoS mitigation, data encryption,

implement consistent protection across your AWS environment.

strict security posture that addresses your unique business needs, and maintaining consistency
across regions, accounts, and Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) as your environment grows.
Cloud services bring new and significant cybersecurity threats.
