Best practices for taking control.
The numbers don’t lie: Driver monitoring can reduce accidents, save organizations money, and protect the people and communities you serve.
Advances in safety technology, like comprehensive driver monitoring solutions, are enabling companies not only to stay safer, but to better navigate the tricky territory of insurance. By following a few new best practices, you can manage insurance costs and protect your company’s bottom line before your drivers even hit the road.
In our free white paper, “Lowering Commercial Automotive Fleet Insurance Costs,” we’ll show you:
• The many ways vehicle crashes affect the bottom line
• A deeper look at the risks of employer- and employee-owned vehicles
• How negligent entrustment suits can snare companies in any industry
• How to mitigate risk and take control of insurance
Collaboration among compliance safety, and risk
DS Services, a distributor of leading beverage brands to residential and business customers, employs more than 3,500 drivers nationwide. Tracking its drivers – and ensuring they’re qualified to be behind the wheel – isn’t easy. “Reviewing motor vehicle records (MVRs) can take weeks, as every state reports violation information differently,” says Jason Gay, DOT compliance administrator for DS Services. “I was spending 12 to 15 hours a week on paperwork alone. It was time to simplify the process.”
DS Services originally turned to SambaSafety to help reduce paperwork and increase efficiency; however, by incorporating continuous driver monitoring into its safety program, DS Services is able to impact its business in . other positive ways.
Three myths about driver safety can cause business leaders to make dangerous decisions -- exposing their organizations to unnecessary risk.

What you don't know could hurt your bottom line
Let’s begin with a question: Do you know who is behind the wheel? The reality is that for many enterprises with employees who drive as part of their job, the answer is, “I think so,” or maybe, “no.” Driver risk management has recently become a top issue for many organizations since it directly affects budgets and the bottom line. The fact that there are more than 100 million people driving for work-related activities on U.S. roads and many of them have invalid, suspended or no driver’s license at all should be cause enough for concern. But combining this with the facts that:
• most organizations’ budgets are at best flat
• P&C insurance rates are rising 14% every 2 years
• 90% of crashes are due to human error
• there are fewer qualified drivers available today
• the number of lawsuits around negligence are skyrocketing
• and it becomes clear that understanding exposure to driver risk is imperative for every organization.
So what do
Today, it’s commonplace for companies to check the motor vehicle records (MVRs) of their drivers once a year. That’s considered due diligence. But what if one driver gets a moving violation or a citation for driving under the influence three weeks after the report was pulled? It could take months for that potentially costly issue to come to light. Likewise, a driver safety policy issued annually is typically worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. There is great potential in setting high standards and creating positive driving behaviors, but this must be a continual process informed by concrete policies, shared motivation to improve, useful data, and quality leadership. Fortunately, several important practices can help companies create a better safety culture –saving money, reducing risk and legal vulnerability, and keeping employees and communities safe. Here’s how.

2. End-to-end Server Security How Dell EMC defines end-to-end server security. In this section, we also provide crucial characteristics business and IT leaders can use to classify prospective server vendors.
3. Key Security Criteria for the Modern IT Infrastructure The security questions every IT leader should ask of their server vendor before embarking on an IT transformation.
4. Conclusion & Additional Resources
The objective of this paper is to highlight the Dell EMC comprehensive approach to server security. PowerEdge servers come with security built-in, not bolted-on. Using a Cyber Resilient Architecture, Dell EMC commits to end-to-end server security on all PowerEdge servers.
Technology is quickly moving to the forefront of business priorities as organizations undertake digital and IT transformation projects that enable strategic differentiation in a world where users leverage applications and data in new ways. Organizations in all industries must better align with changing customer preferences to avoid being disrupted by a new crop of nimble competitors. Technology will increasingly determine how businesses define and distinguish themselves in the market. IDC has noted that most organizations were not born digital but instead have legacy business processes, applications, and infrastructure that require modernization and automation. As a result, businesses must embark on an IT transformation initiative to modernize and automate their legacy infrastructure to prime themselves to achieve their digital business goals and initiatives
It’s not exactly breaking news that cardholder security is front and center of the payments ecosystem “to do” list. And, with that, the search for a solution that keeps cardholder data secure without compromising the consumer experience at checkout. Nowhere is this more important than online, where the incidences of fraud are increasing, and it becomes harder to authenticate the user.

Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.

Since when did budgeting become a process that companies dread? Just say the word “budget,” and you’ll elicit at least a few groans or eyerolls from teams outside of finance. It’s daunting: the weight of the next few years rests on a couple of forecasts, financial projections and line-item lists. As a result, cross-functional teams are under a lot of stress to ensure that their cases and arguments are heard. In some ways, the budgeting process almost feels combative.
IBM QRadar and BigFix solutions empower IT security teams to view, prioritize and respond to endpoint intelligence in near real time.
How can an organization stay ahead of these advanced security threats? Maintaining a high level of baseline security by consistently enforcing security policies and patch levels on endpoints and servers is definitely required and important. But when networks can have multiple vulnerabilities per IP address at scan time, the slow process of mitigating and patching these weaknesses can result in dangerous security gaps. Today’s IT personnel have to make difficult, risk-based decisions on where to focus their efforts—often without having a complete picture of the security environment. This is even more critical when the number of vulnerabilities across the organization is increasing while the organization has limited resources and skills to fix the vulnerabilities.
