Every day reinforces the urgency to address cybersecurity. Unfortunately, most enterprises are not aware of their most obvious vulnerabilities: security leaks from obsolete, unsupported and unauthorized IT assets. Without complete visibility to their IT environment, how can organizations really know if they are truly secure and are not leaving openings to their systems and networks that can be exploited by malicious parties? Organizations must have accurate, up to date information that enables them to prioritize projects and investments for replacing outdated systems and establish rules for data in their system to reduce vulnerabilities and strengthen security. This webinar will address cybersecurity intelligence, a new discipline that can mitigate risk, ensure compliance and effectively govern IT assets.

Maximizing the Value of Compensation for Diversity and Talent Management - Mark Smith speaks at PeopleFluent WISDOM 2016
April 18th, 2016 at 10:45 AM EDT

Proactive compensation management supports a broad set of talent management processes, including recruiting, performance and succession. It can also support compliance and inclusion efforts, such as ensuring organizations are compensating fairly and in compliance with diversity requirements, including gender and race. But in order to be truly successful in supporting these initiatives, compensation needs to be available to and managed by finance, and it should provide the team the information it needs to execute on financial governance initiatives, performance processes, and overall workforce planning and analytics needs. This session will provide insight into the new generation of requirements for compensation management, and why your organization will be at significant risk without a dedicated system that can meet a broad set of needs and also be integrated with your financial and talent management processes.
