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.
The insurance industry boasts some of the most sophisticated modeling capabilities in the world. And yet the average property underwriter does not have access to the kind of predictive tools that carriers use at a portfolio level to manage risk aggregation, streamline reinsurance buying and optimize capitalization.

Data security is a top concern these days. In a world of privacy regulation, intellectual property theft, and cybercrime, ensuring data security and protecting sensitive enterprise data is crucial.
Only a data masking solution can secure vital data and enable outsourcing, third-party analysis, and cloud deployments. But more often than not, masking projects fail. Some of the best data masking tools bottleneck processes and once masked, data is hard to move and manage across the application development lifecycle.
According to a McKinsey study, half of all outsourced projects failed to meet their expected goals – while an Information Week Survey showed that 40% of outsourced projects did not save money! Factors that contribute to these problems include issues with quality, time zone challenges, and added travel expenses, among others.
Security breaches are expensive, costing U.S. businesses an average of $3.5 million per incident, which doesn’t include brand damage or other intangibles. Unfortunately, breaches are highly likely to happen, with 87% of organizations experiencing a breach in the past 12 months.
Data, whether it’s intellectual property or personal data, needs to be protected. Dell Data Protection solutions provide encryption, malware protection, and authentication for Dell and non-Dell products, to equip businesses with a complete, easy-to-manage, end-user security solution.
Adversaries and defenders are both developing technologies
and tactics that are growing in sophistication. For their part,
bad actors are building strong back-end infrastructures
with which to launch and support their campaigns. Online
criminals are refining their techniques for extracting money
from victims and for evading detection even as they continue
to steal data and intellectual property.
It was recently found that most Global 2000 organisations have failed to completely remediate Heartbleed. This leaves these organisations vulnerable to cyberattacks, future brand damage, and intellectual property loss.

In this white paper you will learn how data classification can be one of the most cost-effective methods for ensuring the value of data is maximized while still being used securely and how it can be a critical component to successfully govern information at an enterprise.
Many breaches happen because of compromised privileged user accounts. Risks spread like wildfire in the dynamic traditional, virtualized and cloud environments common in enterprises today. One improperly authorized privileged account can cause widespread and irreparable damage to an organization’s infrastructure, intellectual property and brand equity, leading to sudden drops in market value, broad organizational disruption and costly compliance penalties. Effectively managing privileged access across your hybrid enterprise is an imperative to reducing security and compliance risks.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
In property and casualty insurance, closing new business quickly is key. The longer you leave documents on the kitchen table for signature, the higher the risk of drop-off. Today, people are online. That’s where they want to do business, and they are rewarding carriers and agents who can provide a fast and convenient digital experience.

Hotels and resorts with function space may well have an opportunity to boost their
overall property revenue, given the escalating demand for function space and the
fact that many of them have already maximized the value of their guest rooms
through sophisticated revenue management capabilities. Success generally starts
with a next-generation technology solution that can empower sales and catering
personnel. Success also requires having in place the right organizational resources,
business processes and performance metrics.
Regardless of the size of the vehicles, and often despite the utmost caution, operating vehicles can be a risky endeavor.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, highway accidents accounted for 37,461 deaths in the U.S. in 2016.1 Moreover, a recent study by Motus, a vehicle management and reimbursement platform, found that 40% of all motor vehicle accidents are work-related and cost employers a staggering $56.7 billion in 2017, taking into account medical expenses, property damage, increased insurance premiums, and lost productivity.2 While liability insurance is an important way for employers to address that risk, it’s by no means a panacea. Companies can and should be doing more to lessen the likelihood of accidents in the first place. And given that the vast majority (94%, according to NHTSA’s study) stem from driver-related actions or inactions as opposed to equipment malfunctions, one of the most important ways of doing so is to ensure that the in
Information is the engine of business growth in the digital age. Market intelligence, customer information, intellectual property and other data can be harnessed to create a quantifiable competitive advantage for a company and lay the path for future expansion. Yet as critical as data can be, the sweeping year-over-year proliferation in data volumes can quickly overwhelm an IT organization. This is much more than a budget problem: Without an effective data storage strategy, an organization is putting a critical resource at risk.
