The attacks continue. The breaches occur. Penalties are assessed. While most universities manage to keep pace with the latest digital trends, they have been far less timely when it comes defending their networks and sensitive data against the latest targeted attacks and threats. This lack of protection is evident as recent headlines expose costly data breaches of student records and research, state and federal compliance violations, and a raft of other privacy and security issues that put students, alumni, staff, and the institutions themselves at considerable risk.
Banks want to use technology to work smarter, better and faster to maintain regulatory compliance, reduce risk and increase productivity. Automated IT systems management is helping them reach those goals in a seamless, efficient manner.
Effective workforce management starts with in an accurate, efficient and user-friendly method for capturing work hours, pay rates and absences. Those critical details inform you of whether you are overstaffing particular roles, shifts or locations (or the opposite), provide a true gauge of worker performance through productivity and attendance rates, and – when fully automated – keep your payroll spend in check. In short, there’s immense value in getting the right time and attendance system.

While file sharing proliferates in the enterprise environment, the unsecure and unsanctioned deployment of file sharing technologies poses significant risk to organizations.
Extensive new research conducted by Ponemon Institute in North America and Europe, sponsored by Intralinks, reveals that individuals are behaving badly, organizations are addressing the challenges inadequately, and IT professionals feel a loss of control.
Here is just a sample of the results:
• Half of all respondents lack the confidence to deal with risky file sharing practices
• 62% of respondents accidently sent files to unauthorized individuals outside the organization
• 70% of organizations do not conduct regular audits to determine if file sharing activities are in compliance with regulations

In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis regulatory exams have become increasingly demanding for governance, risk, and compliance professionals. New rules brought about by the Dodd-Frank Act will continue to shape future examinations including safety and soundness, compliance, market conduct, and risk-based targeted exams. We can expect these changes will require examiners to spend more time onsite, request more documents, and extend the scope and/or depth of their examinations. This means it is more important than ever to avoid the classic mistake of sharing examination documents through ad-hoc, manual processes and delivering highly sensitive data through unsecured channels like mail, e-mail, thumb drives, and FTP.
In response to these increasing burdens financial institutions are looking to take control with a more structured, collaborative process for collecting, refining, and submitting regulatory information. Download this white paper to learn more about Intralinks VIA.
The sponsor named below commissioned Ardent Partners to write this report. While the report topic In 2015, collaboration is the name of the game in procurement and frequently entails working with key internal stakeholders (like line-of-business managers and legal departments) or preferred suppliers to drive greater value through sourcing and procurement. For Chief Procurement Officers ("CPOs") and other supply management leaders, collaboration has taken on many new and innovative forms over the years, causing these executives to leverage new (and, in some cases, existing) processes, relationships, and technologies to enhance compliance, decrease risk, and increase savings. One such business process, contract management, has been reborn with digital, automated features that can shift the way procurement teams collaborate, mitigate risk, drive performance, and realize greater savings for the enterprise.
The Impact of CECL and Financial Institution Readiness
When it comes to CECL compliance, top financial consultants agree that extensive amounts of historical data, including different lengths of portfolio histories, will be needed. In addition, this research reveals that a majority of financial institutions do not understand how their risk management methodology needs to change. Nor do they comprehend the impacts of the changes that will need to be made to calculate Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL).
This represents a significant opportunity for top-tier consultancies to provide valuable thought leadership and guidance now, before financial institutions find themselves scrambling to meet the new standard. Learn more in our survey results."
Don’t Let Non-Compliance Fines Impact your Bottom Line and Reputation.

Microsoft has announced that it will end active support and “end of life” Windows XP on April 8, 2014. Now, as that date fast approaches, the highly negative consequences of continuing to use Windows XP in enterprise environments are becoming much clearer. After that date, IT security risks and compliance issues from continued use will be magnified. This white paper examines three aspects that can potentially create a “nightmare” for your organization.
Establishing a culture of integrity, ethics and respect is the number one priority for companies in 2017, according to a new report. In common with the 2015 report, getting an organisation's culture right is the main objective for compliance professionals in the year ahead, with 85 per cent of respondents saying it is one of their three main goals.
However despite this, only 32 per cent of firms indicated that they are planning to undertake a culture or ethics assessment in the next twelve months. In addition, workplace behaviour was rated as the lowest area of risk receiving attention by stakeholders (29 per cent).

Compliance is one of the top challenges facing any payroll and HR department. It’s up to you to ensure that all personnel business practices follow current laws and that you are keeping proper records to document your company’s compliance. While an efficient payroll system can help to enhance employee moral and boost your reputation, mistakes in record-keeping and compliance can result in punitive penalties– even lawsuits. Of course, no business wants to expose itself to such financial and reputational risk. However, keeping up to date with payroll legislation can be a complex task. It’s reported that as many as one in three small businesses are penalised for incorrect payroll. To protect your company from costly fines and even litigation, you need to stay informed about employment laws, reporting rules, and changing workforce compliance issues.
