With the introduction of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and UK Bribery Act, organisations must take corruption in business seriously. Given the complexity of the activities addressed in an anti-bribery and corruption programme, however, the task can seem overwhelming.
Our Anti-Bribery and Corruption Risk Assessment Checklist outlines how to implement an effective anti-bribery compliance programme using a protect, detect and correct methodology to manage core programme components such as:
• Risk Assessment
• Corrective Action
• Training / Communication
• Controls / Oversight
• Business Partners
Our checklist will enable you to design and implement an effective, global and consistent anti-bribery compliance programme.
A strong ethics and compliance programme improves organisational culture, protects corporate reputation and enhances employee engagement. When an ethics and compliance programme is lacking, an organisation could be exposed to significant risk. To ensure compliance programmes meet ongoing best practices, assessments and regular reviews are necessary, valuable and expected by numerous internal and external parties, including government agencies.
New laws and regulations, new lines of business, new geographies and mergers and acquisitions become part of a growing enterprise your compliance ecosystem must support. This requires those in charge of the system to regularly revisit and assess their risk and priorities to make necessary adjustments that ensure an effective compliance programme.

If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement: Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow. Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.
Is open source secure? How much business risk is introduced with it? Fortify surveyed the open source community for an answer and revealed that open source projects lack the three essential elements of security: people, process and technology. Read this research to discover what actions can reduce these risks within your organization.
The hacking community has shifted its effort toward a new frontier: the application layer. How are companies responding? Business Software Assurance – the capability to address the problem of application risk within an enterprise. This whitepaper provides an overview of the severity of the problem along with everything needed to develop Business Software Assurance in your organization.
For a CISO, open source introduces a new source of risk and unique security challenge: how do you influence developers over whom you have no direct management control? Jennifer Bayuk, former CISO of Bear Stearns, provides insight on best practices for evaluating, deploying and managing open source code.
While investments to secure the enterprise continue to rise, breaches into company systems and data are skyrocketing. These cyber crimes are consistently debilitating organizations operations, reputations and ultimately, viability. Today’s CEOs are demanding aggressive strategies to protect their business. CIOs and CSOs are working together to employ proven Business Software Assurance approaches across the enterprise to stay ahead of constant threats.
With an extensive background in police, military, government, and industry security, Howard Schmidt explains how to respond to the changing landscape of cyber threats and how business leaders are helping set the standards for application security. He then profiles industry role models who are setting the standard for application security.

"This Gartner report charts your course to the future of information security with Gartner’s “continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment” (CARTA) as your guide.
This reports highlights a need for security and risk management leaders to embrace a strategic approach where security is adaptive, everywhere, all the time. Gartner calls this strategic approach ""continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment,"" or CARTA.
By reading “Seven Imperatives to Adopt a CARTA Strategic Approach,” you will gain insight into CARTA and better understand the people, process and technical changes it calls for, including:
-Replacing one-time security gates with adaptive, context-aware security platforms.
-Continuously discovering, monitoring, assessing and prioritizing risk and trust — reactively and proactively.
-Performing risk and trust assessments early in digital business initiatives, including development.
-Instrumenting for comprehensive, full-stack visibility, including sensitive data handling.
With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.
