The Ponemon Institute is pleased to present the results of the 2012 Confidential Documents at Risk Study. The study focuses on the security threats associated with inadequate management of confidential business information contained in files such as spreadsheets, presentations and documents, especially when shared or synced. The study also identifies best practices for achieving stronger document-centric security.
Increasingly, many organizations are considering Cloud Computing as a target platform for modernization. Rather than purchasing and operating new IT infrastructure, "Infrastructure as a Service" (IaaS) Cloud solutions enable the computing resources you need to be accessed via the Internet, typically provided by a third party using virtualization, adapters, or other cloud-enabling technologies. Trinity Millennium Group, Inc. (“TMGi”) believes that although migration to the cloud may reduce operational infrastructure expenses, in the absence of true modernization that follows a disciplined, scientific process that emphasizes extracting the knowledge contained within a legacy application will result in merely displacing the inherent inflexibility of the legacy system, rather than removing it.

Do You Know the Policies to Protect Enterprise Mobility? Managing smartphones and tablets is only half the MDM story. Securing the data and access points between corporate systems and your workers' iOS, Android, Windows, and BlackBerry devices requires just as much consideration and planning as protecting the devices themselves. This white paper explores ten policy best-practices for secure and compliant enterprise mobility.

When embarking on an information governance initiative for the enterprise, conventional wisdom dictates that one of the first steps be the formation of an information governance committee. This is easier said than done. In order to be effective the committee must include stakeholders from across the enterprise. Often these constituents have diverging interests that may be difficult to align with an information governance strategy. Corporate leaders may also be reluctant to join “another committee.” In spite of these hurdles, the need for a body to govern the organization’s information policies and procedures is increasingly clear, as the amount of information within enterprises is growing exponentially and the regulations pertaining to information handling are also multiplying. This paper provides practical advice to those who may be in the position of needing to form such a committee.
RSD GLASS brings customers substantial risk mitigation benefits through rigorous, policy-based management of business records over their full lifecycle. In addition to these risk-reduction benefits, adoption of RSD GLASS also drives significant cost savings. The cost savings fall into four categories: 1. Storage and retention optimization: 60-68 percent storage cost savings annually 2. Elimination of over-retention of physical records: For large enterprises, major real estate or off-site storage cost savings in the hundreds of thousands of dollars 3. Staff cost containment: Stable human resource costs can be maintained despite 50 percent year-over- year record volume growth 4. Reduction in e-discovery costs: 40 percent reduction in legal fees or $750,000 per case.
Over the past several years, Aberdeen has been monitoring the adoption of enterprise applications in the public cloud. Critical business applications, such as email, document management, and collaboration tools, traditionally installed as on-premise software are being replaced by solutions offered by service providers in an on-demand, pay-per-user model. The economics of cloud computing are particularly compelling in the contact center where organizations are enjoying a 32% reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) as a result of cloud migration. However, many enterprises satisfied with the hard-dollar returns in the contact center, fail to measure and fully exploit the less obvious benefits and savings. A simple cost comparison is not nearly sufficient to understand the full value to the organization. This document identifies four categories of non-obvious benefits that come from migrating to and/or deploying cloud-based solutions into the contact center architecture.
