In recent years, the legal marketplace has seen an influx of new start-ups and new entrants looking to challenge the long-standing service model offered by law firms to their clients. Traditionally, clients looked to their law firms to provide a full range of legal and legal-related services, i.e., to handle every aspect of a matter, even including those activities that did not involve the direct provision of legal services. Today, by contrast, consumers of legal services find themselves the beneficiaries of a new and growing number of nontraditional service providers that are changing the way legal work is getting done.
These alternative providers comprise a new sector of the legal market, one that is emerging and evolving rapidly, but is still very much in its infancy.

Businesses often come up with great ideas; when auditors come in six months later, they find that some tasks were done incorrectly. Auditing forward means addressing compliance and internal controls as part of the system and process design of a project or new strategy in order to identify potential holes and weaknesses where mistakes, omissions, or even fraud could happen. The Workday technology platform instantiates internal controls in business processes. These business processes are configurable without expensive IT coding and the overhead of the associated process. Therefore, considering, designing, and implementing real-time auditing integrated into the business processes allows the business to audit forward.
Effectively monitoring and managing cloud infrastructure configuration changes and performing on-going vulnerability analyses through forensics, troubleshooting, audits, and automation are key activities to help secure your AWS environment.
Selecting the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software often poses a challenge for many businesses in the manufacturing industry. With so many options out there, it’s difficult to break down each potential application and choose the one that’s the best fit for your business.

Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.
Privileged credentials have served as a major attack vector in the successful execution of many breaches. Protecting privileged access is an imperative to successfully defend an organization from a breach and is a core requirement of multiple compliance regimes.
CA Privileged Access Management helps drive IT security and compliance risk reduction and improves operational efficiency by enabling privileged access defense in depth—providing broad and consistent protection of sensitive administrative credentials, management of privileged identity access and control of administrator activity.
The OCR conducts HIPAA audits of covered entities and their business associates and subcontractors. If HIPAA violations are discovered during these audits, the OCR will implement significant penalties. Additionally, since OCR is posting the details of every breach affecting 500 or more individuals on a public website1 , the organizations involved have become susceptible to class-action lawsuits.

This whitepaper looks into Governance, compliance, control, and audit, and how its been traditionally treated as afterthoughts, or even irritants, in the financial modules of classic “big ERP” software. It has been easy and, unfortunately, typical to ignore this topic when planning, building, and evaluating enterprise business software. Control concepts are not as urgent as transaction processing, as visible as financial reporting, or as exciting as analytics so they are almost always an afterthought. Today we can’t afford for governance to be an afterthought, and from day one Workday was built with that in mind.
Erfahren Sie, warum ein neuer Ansatz nötig ist.
Lesen Sie das Whitepaper “Ein neuer Ansatz für Audits und Kontrollen in Enterprise-Software” und erfahren Sie mehr über die sich verändernde Kontroll- und Governance-Landschaft. Lesen Sie, wie ein neu definierter Umgang mit Technologie zum Prüfstein für Aufgabentrennung, transparente Geschäftsprozesse und umfassende Audits werden kann. Das Whitepaper liefert Ihnen Antworten auf folgende Fragen:
Inwiefern ändern sich die Anforderungen an moderne Finanzlösungen durch neue Kontroll- und Governance-Prozesse?
Warum lässt sich mit traditionellen Lösungen und nachträglich hinzugefügten Funktionen zur Finanzkontrolle keine vollständige Compliance erreichen?
Wie können technologische Innovationen dazu beitragen, das Finanzmanagement zu transformieren und die Kontrolle zu stärken?
Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.
Au cours de ces dernières années, la gestion des accès à forts privilèges, un processus englobant différentes fonctionnalités de contrôle, de supervision et d’audit visant à réduire les risques associés aux utilisateurs, aux comptes et aux identifiants à forts privilèges, est devenue une priorité majeure pour les entreprises et organisations de tous secteurs.
