If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement:  Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow.  Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems. A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.

The digital revolution is transforming every industry. Yet it also brings new challenges: threats to the security and Availability of mission-critical data and services. Approximately 80% of IT decision-makers say their organization has an Availability gap, that is, a failure to meet recovery requirements—a common issue across all industries. 75% say they also have a data protection gap, meaning they are unable to protect their data frequently enough to ensure that business units’ expectations against data loss are being met.

In 2014, the UK saw online sales exceed £10bn per month. For small businesses, getting online is a great way to increase revenue. However, there’s no escaping the fact that small e-retailers are most at risk of suffering a data breach and that breaches are increasing. It is your responsibility to keep the card payment data of your customers safe and a failure to secure your systems could be a costly mistake which leads to penalty fines, lost custom and bad publicity. Worldpay is the leading payments provider in the UK and Europe. Whilst Worldpay has fewer businesses suffering data breaches, compared to our market size, we have a unique oversight on most UK card data breaches. We have compiled our insight and advice into this guide so all businesses, new or old, can ensure they are prepared.

ERP system acquisition projects are rarely deemed to fail.  All the well-advertised failures come later, during implementation and afterward.  Nevertheless, the seeds of these failures are invariably planted in the earliest stages of ERP acquisition planning.

Projects to implement ERP tend to be difficult, expensive and drawn-out. They are often full of painful surprises and overrun budgets and schedules that were extravagant in the first place. They fail entirely in an alarming number of cases.  Why this should be so is not immediately apparent. If we list, at a fairly high level, the tasks required to implement an ERP system in a company that’s already familiar with ERP practices, what we see is a significant but not daunting amount of work.

Information security has undergone a sea change in the past 10 years. Compliance mandates in the form of industry standards and Federal rules like NERC, FFIEC, HIPAA/HITECH and PCI-DSS are the new norm. To stay in compliance, IT teams need to be able to keep up with updatesand changes to existing mandates while also being prepared for new ones. To maximize efficiency, manage risk and reduce potential violations due to compliance failure, organizations need to implement security tools whose features support multiple specifications within and across different compliance frameworks.

As in years past, 2017 was packed with stories of cyber security failure. Between sophisticated attackers, lack of proper security monitoring and controls implementation, and devastating data breaches that may have arisen from these scenarios, it’s easy to see that we still face serious challenges in the security arena, with potentially serious consequences. Why are we continually seeing these issues? Many security professionals readily admit that we don’t have the staff, training and breadth of coverage in our security controls to adequately combat the attackers today. How is this happening when we’re spending so much money and time on cyber security?

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

Not so long ago, if you asked a business executive, “what is the most irreplaceable part of your business?” they might have pointed at their building or their employees. The really forward-thinking execs may have chosen their customers. But the reality is that businesses have insurance to deal with the loss of a building; they can hire new employees; and they can acquire new customers. The one thing that is truly irreplaceable is their data. Lose that and you really are out of business. The potential risks to your data can be as subtle as the malfunction of tiny areas on a disk drive or as enormous as the failure of an entire data center. That means it’s not enough just to protect your data — you must also select the best way to protect it. To deliver that protection in an economical and rapidly recoverable way requires a system that gives you complete control to determine levels of data protection based on the type of data. In this paper, we’ll talk about the science of data protect

While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs. That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. Cheaper oil, for example, may save money initially, but it requires more frequent changes and provides less protection to the equipment, which could shorten component life. For many companies, the short-term savings simply aren’t worth the longterm cost risk. “Some companies don’t realize that they may be able to reduce their overall maintenance costs significantly by spending more up front on better quality lubricants,” Saffell says. “Their equipment may last longer and they are likely to see

That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. By adopting a total cost of ownership (TCO) program, companies can find efficiencies they didn’t even know existed and reap benefits they didn’t realize were possible. Download our white paper, “The Cost Reduction Game,” to learn more about how a TCO program can help increase equipment reliability, extend equipment life, and lower energy costs.
