Financial reporting teams, often led by Controllers, face mounting pressure to provide accurate, useful, and timely data, while also decreasing turnaround time and costs. Regulatory agencies don’t care if an organization is short of staff or if its financial management system amounts to a collection of spreadsheets.

The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies.
One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include:
• Loss or theft of device
• Unauthorized access to device
• Mobile operating system vulnerabilities
• Communication over untrusted networks
• Malware or malicious Apps
• Jailbreak or rooting activity
• Data loss through user behaviors

This short video will show real examples of how government agencies are applying new capabilities like cognitive and analytics to improve how they ingest, manage, store and interact with content.
Banks today are continuously challenged to meet rigorous regulatory
requirements. They must implement strict governance programs that
enable them to comply with a wide variety of regulations stemming
from the financial crisis that began in 2007, including the DoddFrank
Act, Basel Committee on Banking Supervision regulations, the
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Revised Payment
Services Directive (PSD2) and the revised Markets in Financial
Instruments Directive (MiFID2).
Many of these new regulations are spurring banks to rethink how data
from across the enterprise flows into the aggregated risk and capital
reports required by regulatory agencies. Data must be complete,
correct and consistent to maintain confidence in risk reports, capital
reports and analytical analyses. At the same time, banks need ways to
monetize, grant access to and generate insight from data

Wherever an organization is in the world today, it relies on IT in its quest to drive revenues, improve profit margins, and service customers. Yet most small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and government agencies select IT infrastructure solutions that drive higher costs and limit the business' ability to respond to changes in the marketplace. This is driven by perceptions that many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms. Specifically, they erroneously believe that their best option is to execute the applications either on standalone or virtualized on x86 servers. RFG finds that there are 10 compelling reasons why an IBM LinuxONE solution is superior to an x86 one, including the fact that LinuxONE is a better, more economical choice.

Society simply must change the way it serves its most vulnerable members. Service delivery models are outdated and constrained by budgets, organizational structures and legislation. Citizens aren’t getting what they need to become more self-sufficient and recover from hard times or significant events such as disasters. Government isn’t keeping up with the demand generated by the complex times we live in and agencies are stressed to the breaking point by current service expectations. Something different must be done to generate better outcomes. This action requires better engagement between government and citizens which can lead to more self-reliant individuals and lower demands and costs on government. In California, one county is tackling this challenge head on and has found a better way to serve their citizens.

Data centers help state and federal agencies reduce costs and improve operations. Every day, government agencies struggle to meet critical cost controls with lower operational expenses while fulfilling the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative’s (FDCCI) goal. All too often they are finding themselves constrained by their legacy in-house data centers and connectivity solutions that fail to deliver exceptional data center reliability and uptime.

Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done.
This paper outlines:
The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks;
What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats;
A reimagined approach to IT security.

Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone.
These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates.
This white paper highlights:
Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks;
Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors;
How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) works best for smaller centrally located user bases that share a core set of applications and file needs. As the world moves to the web and to the cloud, agencies are asking whether VDI is still a good fit for emerging mobility and BYOD needs. See this important infographic to learn more about the tradeoffs between VDI and emerging cloud technologies, and what you can do to take advantage of new solutions to drive improved mobile productivity across your entire organization.
Renewed interest in Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) comes largely from the need to solve mobility and BYOD demands. Though traditional VDI vendors bring their own solutions to market, isn’t it time to consider smarter alternatives? By focusing on where VDI excels, where it falls short, and where web and cloud services can be most compatible, agencies can take a smarter approach to these difficult decisions. See the tradeoffs in plain English, and learn why more agencies are taking notice to emerging cloud technologies through this exclusive executive summary.
Agency IT is tasked with building smarter and more responsive state and local government services, while CTOs look to enable government workforce mobility and address strategic issues, such as BYOD. Adding to the challenge is a rise in devices, data, and even multiple OS’s that IT must support and secure. With the decline in traditional Windows-based computing, these challenges are driving agencies toward cloud solutions that don't sacrifice security or IT manageability. See our featured cloud solution for government agencies that has IT leaders re-thinking how they enable mobile productivity.
Government and public sector agencies are just beginning to realize how social networks can improve business results. With access to real-time communication, collaboration, and social networking platforms, agencies can improve internal process efficiencies that help them provide better services to their constituents. But first, these agencies have to consider regulatory requirements like the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which require compliant use of these networks and the content people create on them.
