Forrester – How Dirty is Your Data

‘As consumers’ privacy concerns grow, marketers must rethink their data practices. Today’s data governance practices — the rules that guide what consumer data a company collects; how it stores, transfers, and manages that data; and how it uses and disposes of that data — are nebulous at best and dangerously misguided at worst. Marketers must redefine how their organizations treat customers’ personal data.’

This report helps marketers categorize the different types of data their firms collect and provides guidelines on how to govern that data. Get the report and learn:

  • Different types of data being collected and emerging data types that further complicate the landscape
  • The 3 dimensions for evaluating consumer data
  • Guidelines on how to govern that data

Best Practices for Optimizing Website Performance With Tag Management

Many factors impact site performance, including the speed of the hosting provider, page design, number of http requests, and more. One big factor is the accumulation of digital marketing vendor tags and pixels on web pages. Tags can dramatically impact site performance in a number of ways, including poor tag design, slow response time associated with the collection servers, tag placement and the sheer number of tags accumulated on pages. Over the years, Tealium has pioneered many of the best practices in tagging and has incorporated various techniques to minimize the effect of tags on website performance.

They include:

  • Tag Loading & Page Performance – Perceived Load Time vs Actual Load Time
  • Asynchronous Loading
  • Client-Side Tagging with Multi-CDNs
  • Script Compression (gzip) and Bundling
  • Conditional Loading
  • Reduced Page Weight
  • Fewer DNS Lookups
  • Intelligent Cache

Using these techniques, our e-commerce clients can see a 20 to 50% increase in overall site speed. This whitepaper provides more details about these techniques and their associated benefits.

This is understandable and necessary to a degree, but it's also a great way to lose sight of your ultimate goal: protecting customers and empowering the business. Zero Trust networks accomplish the dual tasks of deep, continuous data inspection across the network and lean operation and oversight — tasks that seem mutually exclusive in traditional networks. This report highlights the eight most significant ways Zero Trust boosts security and your business. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

Five Steps for Uncovering Data at Risk for GDPR

Enacted in April 2016, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been called the most important change in data privacy regulation in decades. Now, it’s sweeping regulations are being enforced by the EU.

GDPR introduces a fundamental change in the relationship between businesses of all sizes and personal data regarding EU citizens that is collected and stored regardless of where your business – or data- is maintained. And, GDPR isn’t just an IT problem. It impacts risk, privacy, security and compliance teams, all of whom may be audited.

Want to get started with GDPR assessment? IBM Security Guardium Analyzer is a purpose-built, SaaS-based tool that can help with all of the above. Available in the IBM Cloud, Guardium Analyzer scans your data – on-premises or cloud– and its next generation classification engine delivers efficient scans that produces a visual guide prioritizing which data might be at risk. Guardium Analyzer shows you the potential vulnerabilities tied to the databases scanned as well as which sensitive data that you need to protect and begin the remediation process.

5 Steps to Achieve Risk-Based Application Security Management

Software applications support the most sensitive and strategically important business processes of most enterprises. Yet application security is one of the most neglected fields of cybersecurity.

IT and business management typically have no visibility into the overall state of application security. Activities for assessing, prioritizing and remediating application vulnerabilities are ad hoc, fragmented and carried out at low levels in the IT security organization. Quality assurance and software development groups lack the knowledge and incentives to address critical vulnerabilities early in application development lifecycles, where testing and fixing vulnerabilities are most cost-effective.
