In describing what forecasters are trying to achieve, Saffo outlines six simple, commonsense rules that smart managers should observe as they embark on a voyage of discovery with professional forecasters: Map a cone of uncertainty, look for the S curve, embrace the things that don't fit, hold strong opinions weakly, look back twice as far as you look forward, and know when not to make a forecast.

Despite increased awareness and focus on defending against targeted attacks from both business and security leaders, organizations continue to be breached and suffer the consequences. Many of today’s security investments are simply not aligned to defend against these targeted threat vectors. Advanced threat detection and response should not be a point solution but rather a combination of technologies and core competencies. Detecting and responding to advanced threats should involve tight integration of multiple security technologies, network analysis and visibility (NAV) tools, the ability to automatically generate content such as security rules and signatures, context on attacker history, and overall customization and flexibility to ensure that the solution is fine-tuned for your specific IT environment.

Although typically thought of as an artifact of legacy computing, batch processes remain vital to today’s real-time enterprises. Behind the real time systems that power the real time enterprise, such as customer order fulfillment, account management, supply chain scheduling and optimization, or financial trading systems, are regularly-updated back office business systems. Over the years, batch technology has evolved from script-based automation to rules or policy-driven workload automation.

To meet the requirements of FINRA & SEC, you must first understand what they require of investment firms and organizations. Better yet, you must understand what is classified as a violation of those rules, then put practices in play that mitigate the risk and position you as an active advocate for compliance— not a violator or passive enabler for non-compliant activity.
Read this report to understand how the age of the customer requires tech management to transform into a customer-facing function in speci?c ways. Business technology (BT) brings together technology and traditionally customer-facing roles like marketing, sales, service, brand/product management, and
ful?llment for the purpose of deploying systems of engagement that provide di?erential customer experience. Firms must build these systems of engagement from the outside in, according to how customers move in market spaces. The rules for planning, building, and running systems of engagement are not the same as for previous generations of tech management because customers are not employees. The increasingly crucial role that digital technologies play in customer engagement elevates the CIO role in business — if CIOs can move beyond the traditional IT focus on technology assets and adopt an expanded view that centers on customer experience and choice

Information management is getting harder. Organizations face increasing data volumes, more stringent legal and regulatory record-keeping requirements, stricter privacy rules, increasing threat of breaches and decreasing employee productivity. Companies are also finding that their old-fashioned, legacy archive strategies are increasingly ineffective. This is driving many organizations to rethink their approach, developing more modern Information Governance strategies.
Current Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions have optimized heavily for complete customization, leaving customers with full flexibility in designing rules and workflows. The problem is that it takes these solutions too long to deploy, at too high a cost, and rarely do they deliver on the ROI that was originally anticipated. Okta believes there is a better way, and a way to reach a much broader set of organizations, by building a cloud-based IGA product that is optimized for out-of-the-box capability and is easily configurable.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has arrived. Every company doing business with
European customers — regardless of location — must make considerable governance, people, process,

management. Despite the work ahead, forward-looking businesses understand GDPR is an opportunity.
