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
Three myths about driver safety can cause business leaders to make dangerous decisions -- exposing their organizations to unnecessary risk.
Our free white paper Driver Monitoring: Myth vs. Reality, will show you:
• Why background checks, public records, and license checks are inadequate
• Why pulling Motor Vehicle Records once or twice a year isn’t enough
• How to go beyond telematics and GPS to create real behavioral insights
• The four best practices for comprehensive driver monitoring
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.

of DevOps methodology, maintaining software security is
crucial to you and your customers. Is your software security
program up to the challenge? If you’re not getting the most out
of your software security program, our security experts may be
able to diagnose your difficulties. We’ve created a list of specific
recommendations on how to improve your program for better,
faster results. We present to you “How to make your software
security program successful: 10 Essential Best Practices.”
How confident are you and your peers about the data and security practices you’re working with? We asked 5,000 executives globally, across 24 markets and have some interesting results to share. For example, up to half of IT leaders consider their data is manageable but struggle to gain meaningful insights from it. Yet, while AI and autonomous technology could help relieve this situation, they aren’t high on the priority list. Read our report to find out more about executives’ views about data in connection with security, ethics, and visualisation.

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.

Many business leaders know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are critical to their future but don’t know where to start. Those who do have an AI/ML strategy struggle to find qualified data scientists; and once they find them, even advanced data scientists need a lot of time—even months—to build and deploy ML models. These challenges put significant limits on the range and number of problems a business can solve.
In this webinar, learn how H2O Driverless AI on Amazon Web Services (AWS) automates the best practices of leading data scientists to create advanced machine learning models automatically. With these production-ready models, relative newcomers to AI/ML can generate reliable results and scale-up AI programs that anticipate and capitalize on trends, optimize supply chains, understand customer demand, match consumers with goods and services, and much more.
