Agiliance®, Inc., the Big Data Risk Company™ and leading independent provider of integrated solutions for Operational and Security Risk programs, today announced that it will host a webinar in collaboration with BankInfoSecurity.com on vendor risk management best practices, Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 11:30 AM Eastern Time. Entitled, “How to Tackle Vendor Risk Management: Operationalizing Third-Party Risk Management in Today’s Regulated Environment”, the webinar will offer expert advice from Nate Bedrossian, global head of vendor risk and control at a major international financial institution, and Kevin Barcellos, director of technical alliances at Agiliance.
With many organizations pushing outsourcing to its limits, regulators and standards bodies (e.g., MAS, OCC, BaFin, FCA, FedRAMP, BITS, NERC, NEI, ISO, PCI Security Council, AICPA, and Cloud Security Alliance) are increasingly mandating the use of supplier risk management frameworks. Systems and process failures by third parties can have catastrophic reputational and operational consequences for an organization. Thus, assessing just the top 25 critical vendors is no longer sufficient.
“It is no longer sufficient to simply implement procedures to manage vendors and the risk they may pose to an organization, we now need to also safeguard against third-party related control failures,” said Torsten George, vice president of worldwide marketing and products at Agiliance. “In this webinar we will explore how organizations can fulfill their regulatory mandates and implement an end-to-end risk assessment process that covers everything from on-boarding, contract execution, KPI monitoring to risk mitigation actions.”
Moderated by Tom Field, vice president of editorial at Information Security Media Group, the webinar will provide practical advice on how organizations can leverage enterprise vendor risk management systems such as RiskVision™ to continuously monitor and manage third-party risks (operational, reputational, cyber/cloud) downstream in the supply chain.
This educational webinar will specifically cover:
- What regulators are requiring in vendor governance, what is driving their actions, and what the future holds.
- How a top 10 global bank designed a vendor risk management framework and supporting operations/technology capabilities to support tens of thousands of risk owners and hundreds of thousands of supplier services in an increasingly regulated environment.
- How to implement a highly scalable, end-to-end vendor risk management framework that covers parallel workflows of on-boarding of new vendors, renewing vendor contracts, as well as taking real-time business feeds (e.g., payment, reputational) and business performance into account.
- Best practices around vendor risk management.
The first broadcast of this webinar is scheduled for July 31, 2014 at 11:30 AM Eastern Time. For more information, additional broadcast dates, and to register, visit http://bit.ly/1rI9JIt.

We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
