Security concerns, accountability and privacy issues are some the major focuses for organizations throughout the US and worldwide. Complying with legislation and regulations that are designed to protect an organization's critical information is often time consuming, costly and difficult to implement. Organizations that fail to comply, or are unable to account for data risk incurring severe penalties for their organization, in addition to facing possible jail time. The IT systems that contain company information have to be constantly well maintained, verified and protected. Errors, discrepancies and future risk assessment must be addressed to avert dissemination of inaccurate information and the release of confidential data.
Sharing Data Effectively Without Compromising Confidentiality – Many corporations need to share information with business partners and service providers as part of their business model. Organizations struggle to maintain the confidentiality of data while also making it accessible. Risk and vulnerability assessment as well as internal audit is critical to ensure that the integrity of confidential data is not compromised and that regulations concerning privacy are followed.
Exploring and Understanding Successful Risk Management Models – Risk has become an integral part of corporate life. Successful risk management can have a significant impact on the bottom line, customer satisfaction and business processes. Building an effective risk management model is a paramount factor contributing to a company's success, as fewer failed ventures occur and unexpected occurrences are countered more effectively.
Achieving Compliance and Efficiency with Role-Based Access Control – Many companies have not been successful in developing and managing roles to help their organizations achieve compliance and creating efficiencies. Others believe its simply too complex to create a reliable and secure method for requesting end-user access and a level of efficiency for security administration.
Countering the Workforce Impacts of Medical & Health Crisis – The Center for Disease Control estimates that a medium size pandemic would have an economic impact of $71.3 billion to 116.5 billion dollars. During the next major health related crisis (e.g. Avian Flu or influenza pandemic), businesses are at risk of loosing resources due to health-related absences.
