The impact of information is changing and while this change provides great opportunities, it also presents greater risks. Traditional monitoring processes and technology advancements alone no longer deliver effective identification, management, and prevention of business risks, instead the changing impact of information demands early detection and root cause analysis. Learn how leading companies are magnifying exploitation of information security risks, along with advancing identification and protection of compliance risks.
To address the volume, velocity, and variety of data necessary for population health management, healthcare organizations need a big data solution that can integrate with other technologies to optimize care management, care coordination, risk identification and stratification and patient engagement. Read this whitepaper and discover how to build a data infrastructure using the right combination of data sources, a “data lake” framework with massively parallel computing that expedites the answering of queries and the generation of reports to support care teams, analytic tools that identify care gaps and rising risk, predictive modeling, and effective screening mechanisms that quickly find relevant data. In addition to learning about these crucial tools for making your organization’s data infrastructure robust, scalable, and flexible, get valuable information about big data developments such as natural language processing and geographical information systems. Such tools can provide insig

Near-perfect inventory visibility is critical to transforming the customer experience and competing in the retail revolution. Yet inventory accuracy across retail sectors hovers at around 60%. That shortfall causes retailers to lose out on potential sales and puts customer loyalty at risk.How do retailers address this issue? RFID—or radio frequency identification—is 10 times more efficient at cycle counting and can increase inventory accuracy across the supply chain by up to 99.5%, enabling retailers to truly compete in the highly competitive omnichannel world. Launch a successful RFID technology pilot program in your retail operation with our free How-to Guide: Five Steps to Piloting RFID for Unprecedented Inventory Visibility. This guide takes you from Step 1 (a KPI checklist) to Step 5 (execution and monitoring), so you can launch a pilot program and effectively measure its ROI before moving to full deployment.

Detecting and preventing errors that threaten patient safety is a closed-loop process that begins at the point of care, extends to independent laboratories, and then back to the caregiver. Sample identification and results reporting errors can lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment with deadly consequences. A 2006 Wall Street Journal article reported that while malpractice claims for pathology errors are relatively low, they are the second most costly. In addition to creating a serious risk to patient safety, sample misidentification creates significant financial implications. Redraws, retesting and additional treatment that result from sample errors cost the healthcare industry an estimated
$200 million to $400 million per year.
A zero-day threat is a vulnerability that becomes known to the vendor on the same day it becomes known to the public, meaning IT assets targeted by a zero-day threat won't have a patch available when it's needed. However, zero-day attacks operate in a realm of the probable - they work only because there are exploitable vulnerabilities within IT systems. Many of these can, and should be prevented.
This guide describes why organizations are vulnerable to zero-day attacks, and what you can do to add a zero-day offense to your existing vulnerability management processes to protect your organization's assets and data.
