1. The myth of email as proof of communication
It is now time to look to a more ubiquitous means of achieving such a proof of content - and this can be done through the simple medium of email.
2. Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC)
An organisation has multiple stakeholders that need to be communicated with or reported to regularly. Ensuring that all the stakeholders' information needs are met requires a holistic approach to managing information - the creation of a GRC platform
3. The trouble heading for your business
New research, presented in this report, underlines the scale and real impact of the problem, the measures being taken to defend against targeted attacks and how effective they are.
4. Managing employee expenses in the financial sector
The need to ensure that employees remain within the bounds of policies dictating permitted expenses cannot be left to chance, or to expenses being dealt with after the point of transaction.
5. Effective Public Sector Citizen Communications
The UK public sector is in the midst of a period of transformation and improving citizen engagement will be key to the success of this change. The effectiveness of public services relies on reliable, accurate and clear citizen communication.
6. You sent WHAT?
The technology exists today to link the use of data to people through enforceable policies. This allows a compliance-oriented architecture to be put in place based on widely accepted information security standards, such as ISO 27001
7. Removing the complexity from information protection
Encryption technologies can reduce risks by ensuring the information on devices is secure when users are on the move. They can also add value by the secure sharing of information among authorised users and by enabling more secure remote working.
8. The New Europe
As the EU continues to expand, European businesses must look to how they can trade across increasing numbers of regional boundaries, languages, cultures and laws, both within the EU and across the greater Europe.
9. Another Year on the ILM Journey
Quocirca conducted two surveys separated by 12 months that looked at the data management infrastructure of UK and Irish businesses and how this was linked to their ability to respond to the whims of the regulators. A lot has changed in the year.
10. Email as Intellectual Property
Growth in overall email volume, driven by more sophisticated spamming attacks, as well the need to filter out malware and to ensure content is suitable for purpose means that we now must re-address how we view email within the organisation.
