The Future Of Data Security And Privacy: Growth And Competitive Differentiation

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Sep 30, 2016
Data is the lifeblood of today’s digital businesses; protecting it from theft, misuse, and abuse is the top responsibility of every S&R leader. Hacked customer data can erase millions in profits, stolen IP can destroy competitive advantage, and unnecessary privacy abuses can bring unwanted scrutiny and fines from regulators while damaging reputations. S&R pros must take a data-centric approach that ensures security travels with the data regardless of user population, location, or even hosting model; position data security and privacy capabilities as competitive differentiators; and build a new kind of customer relationship.

AI Is Ready For Employees, Not Just Customers

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Aug 01, 2018
Your customers aren't the only ones who can benefit from advancing artificial intelligence (AI) support — your employees can, too. Chatbots help employees who service customers, and you can build them with mature AI components. But success requires a focus on tasks rather than job replacement as well as a cyborg-like division between human and machine tasks. This report helps infrastructure and operations (I&O) pros determine which tasks are best executed by people and which are best left to machines, with use cases describing how that looks.

No More Chewy Centers: The Zero Trust Model Of Information Security

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption. This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
