Regardless of the size of the vehicles, and often despite the utmost caution, operating vehicles can be a risky endeavor.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, highway accidents accounted for 37,461 deaths in the U.S. in 2016.1 Moreover, a recent study by Motus, a vehicle management and reimbursement platform, found that 40% of all motor vehicle accidents are work-related and cost employers a staggering $56.7 billion in 2017, taking into account medical expenses, property damage, increased insurance premiums, and lost productivity.2 While liability insurance is an important way for employers to address that risk, it’s by no means a panacea. Companies can and should be doing more to lessen the likelihood of accidents in the first place. And given that the vast majority (94%, according to NHTSA’s study) stem from driver-related actions or inactions as opposed to equipment malfunctions, one of the most important ways of doing so is to ensure that the in

Did you know that organizations with advanced finance teams are more likely to have a compelling digital customer experience? The driver behind this trend? A digital, customer-first way of working with greater investment in talent, innovation, and advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
While finance has long taken advantage of technology to help drive productivity and collaboration, the goalposts have recently moved. Today’s organizations must adopt an agile finance operating model— powered by emerging digital technologies and skillsets—to better support the demands of an economy driven by continuous innovation.
In this report, we''ll analyze the many challenges that organizations face when it comes to building and managing modern IT infrastructure. We'll also look at how many businesses are taking advantage of a hybrid cloud and on-premise approach, which comes with some significant benefits.
However, big data and analytics solutions can have shortcomings. Proprietary and best-of-breed approaches can require valuable time and resources to build, integrate and maintain — while outsourcing data analytics can constrain reporting frequency and timeliness. In a world where operational efficiency and fast, reliable information is paramount, these limitations can put payers at a competitive disadvantage.

Finance leaders believe data management is a burden on businesses. Yet less than half of organisations have a data management strategy in place. But data management strategies positively impact security across all lines of business.
Poor data management practices inevitably lead to poor outcomes, with bad decisions based on bad data. Data must also be protected, with weak practices leading to cyber breaches. And the reputational damage to an organisation’s brand cannot be underestimated. However, when managed well, data offers a competitive advantage. In the past, data was typically informed historical reporting, with internal needs and compliance taking priority.
There is a new data paradigm. Data is the new currency in the digital age.

Cost, speed, and reliability are all important to consider when designing a network, but balancing all three is no easy task. As your organization expands, you need a resilient, fast, and secure network—especially in large, distributed environments. And it needs to be affordable.
This is where a software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) comes to the rescue. And deploying it today can provide a quantifiable competitive advantage. Gartner estimates SD-WAN has less than 5% market share today, but predicts 25% of users will manage their WAN through software within two years.
"Secure Enterprise SD-WAN for Dummies" guides you step-by-step how to manage and secure digital networks with SD-WAN, with instructions even the most novice networking professional can understand.

Five false assumptions about SD-WAN
By now, almost everyone knows something about software-defined-wide-area networking (SD-WAN). SD-WAN is getting a lot of buzz over its MPLS counterpart, but every innovation in tech comes with certain misconceptions—it’s just part of the territory.
Can SD-WAN take the place of internet? SD-WAN doesn’t require on-premises hardware, right? Outside of cost, is it really better than MPLS?
Read “Secure Enterprise SD-WAN Myths” for answers to these questions and more, clarity around SD-WAN’s advantages and limitations, and how Forcepoint can help you implement secure SD-WAN for your distributed enterprise.
And yes—SD-WAN really is better than MPLS.
The former Keppel Harbour was transformed into the vibrant marina-waterfront living precinct that it is today. To date, the Keppel Bay waterfront is lined by three iconic residential developments – Caribbean At Keppel Bay, Reflections At Keppel Bay and Corals At Keppel Bay – with a total of 2,464 apartments.
As the Keppel Bay precinct matures over the years, the marina-waterfront housing lifestyle has taken roots and offers an attractive living concept to prospective buyers.
Being situated on the mainland, Keppel Bay also have the advantage of being closer to amenities and have better accessibility and connectivity. Following the announced extension of the CCL to include three more stations (Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward) to close the circle, Keppel Bay will be directly connected to Marina Bay in the Downtown Core. When these stations are in operation by 2025, travel time between Keppel Bay and the CBD will be reduced by one-third of the current travel time.
Finding the right IT service provider is not as simple as it may seem. Choosing a service provider based exclusively on low price may be good for your bottom line, but may fall short on delivering the right level of IT expertise and resource scalability for long-term advantage.
Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.
