Both the speed of innovation and the uniqueness of cloud technology is
forcing security teams everywhere to rethink classic security concepts
and processes. In order to keep their cloud environment secure,
businesses are implementing new security strategies that address the
distributed nature of cloud infrastructure.
Security in the cloud involves policies, procedures, controls, and
technologies working together to protect your cloud resources, which
includes stored data, deployed applications, and more. But how do you
know which cloud service provider offers the best security services? And
what do you do if you’re working on improving security for a hybrid or
This ebook provides a security comparison across the three main public
cloud providers: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and
Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With insight from leading cloud experts,
we also analyze the differences between security in the cloud and

Public clouds have fundamentally changed the way organizations build,
operate, and manage applications. Security for applications in the cloud
is composed of hundreds of configuration parameters and is vastly
different from security in traditional data centers. According to Gartner,
“Through 2020, at least 95% of cloud breaches will be due to customer
misconfiguration, mismanaged credentials or insider theft, not cloud
The uniqueness of cloud requires that security teams rethink classic
security concepts and adopt approaches that address serverless, dynamic,
and distributed cloud infrastructure. This includes rethinking security
practices across asset management, compliance, change management,
issue investigation, and incident response, as well as training and

Container adoption continues to grow as organizations look to transition from virtual machines to microservices-based architectures, known for their increased efficiency, portability, and scalability. But while containers afford an additional layer of security through their ability to isolate applications, a containerized environment is still susceptible to malicious attacks between containers or the within the shared resources of the underlying host.
Download this eBook to learn how you can develop a stronger security strategy for your AWS container deployments, from start to finish. Key takeaways include:
• Planning for maximum portability
• Setting permissions for users and system resources
• Creating an action plan based on log monitoring and IDS data

Today’s most successful brands blend Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation with human intelligence (HUMINT) to augment their customer and employee experience strategies in the contact center – and as a result, they’re winning over customers.
While some tasks are perfect for automation – think about those mundane, repetitive, low-value actions – the truth is, AI simply cannot replicate the “human touch.” Understanding the strengths of each kind of intelligence (AI + HUMIT), and using them to cooperatively deliver exceptional employee and customer experiences is a pivotal competitive differentiator for brands.
These leading brands agree there are four specific ways to drive the greatest outcomes – and we go into detail about them in all our Contact Center Collaborative Intelligence strategy guide.

Thousands of federal employees are issued mobile devices every year to carry out their agency’s mission. The government has strict security standards for such devices, but a new poll by Government Business Council (GBC) suggests that employee perceptions may be at odds with organizational priorities regarding security of these mobile devices.
The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.

In January 2016, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program released a draft of its high-impact baseline for moving federal data to the cloud. Not long after, Amazon Web Services (AWS) accepted an offer to pilot the new security threshold. AWS worked with FedRAMP to develop a set of standards under which highly sensitive government data could securely migrate into cloud environments. If ever you doubted that cloud computing was the new frontier for federal data and software management, look around. Over 2,300 government agencies worldwide have already migrated to the AWS Cloud. And in the U.S., this will only increase with the release of FedRAMP’s high baseline standards. Previously, CSPs could only become certified at a low or moderate baseline under FedRAMP, meaning agencies had no security baseline from which to spring their sensitive data into the cloud. These new standards effectively represent the fall of the final formal barrier to federal cloud computing. Terabytes o

The breach of 1.5 million patient records—including patient data for the prime minister—at SingHealth, Singapore’s largest group of healthcare institutions, has been called the most serious breach of personal data in the nation’s history. The breach was of great concern and created a chill of fear in many public and private organizations throughout the region and the world. If Singapore, one of the world’s most connected countries, as well as one of the world’s most cybersecure, could have a breach of this magnitude perpetrated against a national institution, why couldn’t this happen to any organization, anywhere?

For the second year, we asked 500 panelists their
feelings and perceptions regarding the state of brickand-
mortar retail. The results may surprise you.
Our research found that, although sales associates are generally viewed
neutrally, specific sectors such as consumer electronics stores and momand-
pop shops have a positive perception.
Consumers seek out sales associates who are educated and able to
help them make an informed purchase. Our results also confirmed prior
reporting1 into the growing fluidity between e-commerce and traditional
retail. More than 75 percent of our panelists reported frequently browsing
online, then purchasing the product in-store. Sales associates who are
educated about the products in their store are more likely to sell more. Brands
that ensure that their sales teams have the proper product knowledge
maximize the likelihood that consumers will purchase from them.
