Complying with the safe work practices required by NFPA 70E and implementing arc flash mitigation strategies through engineering controls will enhance workplace safety for employees and lower financial risk for your company. Read the white paper, "Mitigating Arc Flash Hazards", for more information.
If not, you are increasing the risk for costly, unplanned downtime. However, despite the importance of having a reliable flow of electricity, over half of building owners rely on reactive maintenance programs to care for their equipment. This means they wait until equipment fails completely before initiating corrective action, which is typically 3-4 times more costly than taking preventive measures.
A good first step to go from being reactive to proactive is having a power system assessment performed. While often deemed expensive or unnecessary, the truth is power system assessments reveal opportunities to modernize, imiprove performance and help protect employees.

Rising costs, declining reimbursements and the mandate to improve quality: these are key challenges that surgery centers face every day. For years, costs have continued to climb, while reimbursements have declined or, at best, remained stable. To address these issues and succeed in the future, surgery centers need to develop comprehensive plans that leverage both supply chain and clinical expertise. For many facilities, the next step is to conduct a clinical assessment that identifies new ways to improve inventory management and clinical practices. The heart of this approach from Cardinal Health is a clinical team that leverages OR and supply chain expertise to understand, prioritize and pursue opportunities for improving the health of patient and your practice alike. To learn more, read this case study and find out how two surgery centers have used a clinical assessment from Cardinal Health to improve performance.

Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
Among your primary responsibilities as a board member is providing advice on both business strategy and enterprise risk. A general understanding of risk management is essential when looking at cyber risk specifically. Ultimately, an enterprise should consider adding cybersecurity expertise to its board membership, but all members can benefit from increasing their understanding about how cyber risk affects corporate strategy and the overall enterprise risk profile. To provide effective strategic advice to company leadership on cyber risk, you must ask the right questions, including whether a company does ongoing cyber risk assessment and management, and how.
Pour dynamiser le marché ou rester compétitives, les entreprises doivent livrer leurs produits logiciels plus rapidement que jamais. Les méthodes traditionnelles d’assurance qualité ne sont cependant pas en mesure de supporter cette cadence soutenue. Bien qu’ils aient aidé les organisations à améliorer la qualité du code, les mécanismes d’intégration continue ne prennent pas en charge les tests de bout en bout à l’échelle du cycle de vie du code.

Does your website load in two seconds or less? If not, you could be disappointing nearly half of your customers. According to Kissmetrics, 47 percent of e-commerce users expect websites to load in less than two seconds – and nearly a quarter of them will abandon your website entirely if it takes longer than four seconds. Additionally, 50 percent of customers shop on their mobile phones. In other words, your website needs to load fast and be optimized or your customers will leave.
The reality is that an e-commerce company can increase revenue by up to 7 percent just by making the load time one second faster. So, how can your company improve its site performance and make it faster?
The best practices outlined in this whitepaper can reduce your site’s loading time, improve your user experience, and ultimately increase your company’s revenue.
