“More than 70 percent of cyber attacks target small businesses," according to a National Cyber Security Alliance estimate. Yet 68 percent of small business owners in a recent survey seemed oblivious to the threat. Why the disconnect? What should they be doing to protect their business-critical systems and data? How can small businesses wring maximum value from their cybersecurity investments? Where do AI-based endpoint protection, detection, and response platforms fit into the mix? Read this BlackBerry Cylance sponsored white paper, Small Organizations Still Need Big Security, to find out.
With the increasing complexity and volume of cyberattacks, organizations must have the capacity to adapt quickly and confidently under changing conditions. Accelerating incident response times to safeguard the organization's infrastructure and data is paramount. Achieving this requires a thoughtful plan- one that addresses the security ecosystem, incorporates security orchestration and automation, and provides adaptive workflows to empower the security analysts.
In the white paper ""Six Steps for Building a Robust Incident Response Function"" IBM Resilient provides a framework for security teams to build a strong incident response program and deliver organization-wide coordination and optimizations to accomplish these goals.

A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade.
More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome.
But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous.
This white paper will discuss:
• The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management
• Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance
• The cost of different contractor management systems
• How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain
We’ve heard it before. A data warehouse is a place for formally-structured, highly-curated data, accommodating recurring business analyses, whereas data lakes are places for “raw” data, serving analytic workloads, experimental in nature. Since both conventional and experimental analysis is important in this data-driven era, we’re left with separate repositories, siloed data, and bifurcated skill sets.
Or are we? In fact, less structured data can go into your warehouse, and since today’s data warehouses can leverage the same distributed file systems and cloud storage layers that host data lakes, the warehouse/lake distinction’s very premise is rapidly diminishing. In reality, business drivers and business outcomes demand that we abandon the false dichotomy and unify our data, our governance, our analysis, and our technology teams.

Spend-related regulatory violations come in the form of different types of payments or gifts, including those to sanctioned organizations or people; debarred organizations or people; organizations or people on an export control list; foreign officials or government-owned entities; politically-exposed people; and healthcare professionals or organizations.
How do you know if you have these violations hiding in your organization's expenses, contracts, or invoices?
It’s not easy to weed them out, and if you don’t have an automated, systematic approach, doing so is prohibitively time consuming.

More and more financial institutions are partnering with fintechs and leveraging Application Program Interfaces (APIs) to attract new prospects and to delight current consumers through unprecedented Customer Experience (CX). APIs offer a bridge between systems while paving a digital path to a connected financial ecosystem.
The institutions that are able to drive this digital transformation successfully, do not think of these capabilities as additional channels and services. Rather, these institutions understand that they must move from a vision of banking as a physical network of branches and ATMs, to a digital platform, comprising core capabilities such as account servicing and the provision of financial products that can be accessed wherever, and whenever, customers wish.
Join this webinar and learn how these institutions are building a digital banking platform with APIs.

City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites:
• Consider the local culture and the people • Prioritize basic needs and requests • Work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments • Consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system
A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovatio
Local and regional governments around the world are using the cloud to transform services, improve their operations, and reach new horizons for citizen services. The Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud enables data collection, analysis, and decision making for smarter cities. This whitepaper provides strategic considerations for local and regional governments to consider as they identify which IT systems and applications to move to the cloud. Real examples that show how cities can stop wasting money, move faster, and innovate.

Ingen kan jämföra sig med Dell när det kommer till livslängd. Våra maskiner har inte bara kapacitet, hanterbarhet och säkerhetsfunktioner som IT-avdelningen kan lita på, de är dessutom utformade för en lång livscykel vilket minskar avfalls- och återvinningskostnader. Det är inte konstigt att de har funnits så länge.
Så ser bakgrunden ut, men hur är det med framtiden? Latitude 7400 2-i-1 använder den nya Dell Express-inloggningen. Den upptäcker att användaren är där, väcker systemet på ungefär en sekund och loggar in användaren med ansiktsigenkänning och Windows Hello. Användaren kan bara sätta sig vid skrivbordet och börja jobba, utan att behöva trycka på control-alt-delete eller sträcka sig till strömbrytaren. Det är faktiskt världens första PC som använder en närhetssensor driven av Intel® Context Sensing Technology. När användaren tar en paus upptäcker Latitude att personen har gått iväg och låser sig själv för att spara på batteriet och skydda datorn.

Banking is rapidly being transformed by one, distinct theme: digital technology.
For those leading the charge, there is no longer a distinction between a business strategy and a technology strategy. There is just strategy driven by technology and the client needs it will evolve to continually meet. In this new world, upgrading existing operations and making legacy systems fit new challenges is not going to be enough. To succeed, banks need to become future-ready, connected enterprises, backed by a new type of technology and operating model that is nimble enough to adapt to new challenges and growth opportunities.
This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t
In the last few years we have seen a rapid evolution of data. The need to embrace the growing volume, velocity and variety of data from new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) has been accelerated.
The ability to explore, store, and manage your data and therefore drive new levels of analytics and decision-making can make the difference between being an industry leader and being left behind by the competition. The solution you choose must be able to:
• Harness exponential data growth as well as semistructured and unstructured data
• Aggregate disparate data across your organization, whether on-premises or in the cloud
• Support the analytics needs of your data scientists, line of business owners and developers
• Minimize difficulties in developing and deploying even the most advanced analytics workloads
• Provide the flexibility and elasticity of a cloud option but be housed in your data center for optimal security and compliance

The attacks and tools being used against financial
services organizations are part of a complex
ecosystem. This may seem like an obvious statement
at first glance. When you read most industry reports,
they tend to focus on a single aspect of the whole
ecosystem, as if it were unrelated to other types of
attacks. To be honest, we’ve been just as guilty of
having a myopic view of attack traffic as anyone else.
We wanted to do something different for this report.
Instead of looking at a single type of attack, we
stepped back to look at attacks against banks, credit
unions, trading companies, and other organizations
that make up financial services as a whole. Most
defenders only see a very small segment of the
overall traffic, whether they’re the target or the
vendor supplying defensive tools. The breadth of
Akamai’s products and our visibility into a significant
portion of Internet traffic allows us to research
multiple stages of the attack economy.
