The way that people and companies leverage IT is in
the process of a revolutionary change. To maintain a
competitive edge in the face of an unrelenting pace of
innovation, opportunity creation and environmental
turmoil, organizations must exploit the provisioning of
IT resources to facilitate new ways of doing business.
And whether you’re talking about the increase in mobile
technologies, the Internet of Things or some other transformative
technology, cloud is at the forefront and the
heart of this change
All of cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure is vulnerable to a wide range of risk and exposure from both physical
and cyber threats and perils. Sophisticated cyber individuals and groups exploit standalone and congregated
vulnerabilities to steal money and information, or disrupt, endanger and damage operations. The combination of wide
opportunity for crime in cyberspace and the ability to execute from geographically-dispersed locations has produced a
transformation of traditional criminal activities.
After several years of relentless hardware and software innovation, the mainframe is at an inflection point. It’s quickly moving from being a supporting platform of transaction revenue to becoming a source of revenue growth and innovation. Organizations are evolving toward what IDC calls the “connected mainframe.” This evolution to the platform is also enabling the mainframe to play a central role in organizations’ digital transformation (DX) journey. Key steps in achieving the connected mainframe require that organizations modernize and integrate the platform with their internal and external environments. IDC finds that these modernization and integration initiatives lead to new business innovations, which in turn are driving revenue growth.
Early adopters of a connected mainframe strategy have achieved more than 300% return on investment (ROI). Over 50% of the benefit value came from business productivity gains, realized from higher transaction volumes, new services, and/or business
Encryption, if properly deployed and managed, is one of the most powerful tools that organizations can
use to avoid costly and embarrassing data breaches. Yet organizations struggle with the complexity
associated with the technology that often stems from a history of siloed investments of point solutions
designed to largely address pools of regulated data associated with a compliance mandate.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a paradigm shift in the way companies across the globe must approach protecting personal data. As of May 2018, EU data subjects now have greater autonomy than ever before over how their personal information is collected, stored and shared – and the repercussions for companies that fail to comply will be significant.
At the heart of the matter lies Data Security and Protection. Protect the personal data, and you are well on your way to tackling many of the challenges the GDPR presents. But this is no easy task – before you protect your data, you must understand it, and even once you’ve achieved these goals, continually re-evaluate your data privacy and protection posture to adapt to changes in this dynamic environment.
