Agile methods have a reputation for being fast and adaptive and can enhance both quality and team productivity. For these reasons they are attractive to software teams in many different domains - including safety-critical systems development. But how can agile methods be adapted to meet the needs of such a challenging domain? In the fourth episode of the series, IBM Rational Chief Evangelist, Bruce Powel Douglass discusses how agile practices can be adapted to meet the evidence needs of safety-critical projects.
The need for threat-focused next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) that can effectively mitigate risks that traditional unified threat management (UTM) and point solutions cannot is highlighted by numerous studies, including one from Cisco that reported that every organization should assume it has been hacked. Cisco threat researchers found malicious traffic was visible on 100 percent of the corporate networks that they observed, with evidence that adversaries had often penetrated those networks and were frequently operating undetected over a long period.

Have you ever wondered how the bad guys actually get control of a system? And, how they convert that system into a data-syphoning droid? Join AlienVault security engineer, Tom D'Aquino as he walks you through the steps of a system compromise and how detect these nefarious activities at every stage.
• How attackers exploit vulnerabilities to take control of systems
• What they do next to find & exfiltrate valuable data
• How to catch them before the damage is done with AlienVault USM
Using a real-world example of a common vulnerability, Tom will show you how AlienVault USM gives you the evidence you need to stop an attack in its tracks.

The Definitive Guide to Compliance Programme Assessment is a comprehensive resource full of advice and best practices. It is designed to help organisations evaluate and improve their ethics and compliance programmes through industry evidence and insights.
Each programme is unique, with disparate risks and various levels of maturity, so not everything in this guide will apply to every programme. It is designed to help you perform a robust gap analysis of your unique programme and guide you through best practices to achieve the next level of programme sophistication right for your organisation.
Enterprise risk management (ERM) is moving to the top of corporate agendas, and evidence shows strategic risk is a key factor in a robust ERM framework.
Check out this white paper from risk management pioneer James Lam. In it, Lam explains why every organization should be focusing on strategic risk. You'll learn how to integrate risks into the planning process, use economic capital and risk-adjusted return on capital to measure risk, and how to apply these results.

dversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular,

becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having
a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive
techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less
effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology
can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to
“go on the hunt.”
Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on
the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave
behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking
with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of
just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected
activity, you apply human analytical capacity and
understanding about environment context to more quickly
determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process
allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping
them before intruders are able t

Michelle has been with Twilio for nearly four years, supporting “Twilions” — as employees are affectionately known inside the company — through tremendous growth in both revenue and headcount. “We’re looking at creating a great employee experience at Twilio. We want to provide Twilions with the tools, resources, and experiences they need to innovate, scale, and grow.” BetterUp’s whole person approach was a key part of Michelle’s evaluation process. Most leadership development approaches focus on teaching people what to do. But what they miss is an equal focus on how to be. In contrast, BetterUp’s approach addresses the psychological resources that allow leaders to manage themselves so they have the capacity to manage others. This includes the ability to remain resilient, have a growth mindset, maintain a sense of control, and take risks. Evidence shows that these resources need to be in place for sustainable leadership habits to take root.

American corporations today spend an estimated $160B annually on learning and development initiatives. Yet employees forget up to 75% of the material taught, meaning up to $120B of that investment is wasted. It’s no wonder that 70% of organizational transformations fail – organizational transformation starts with individual transformation. If we can’t nail the latter, we have no hope in achieving the former. This eBook will detail the phases of successful individual transformation, from Learning to Doing to Being, incorporating the latest evidence from fields across the behavioral sciences.
