Enhancing the value of core banking transformations


The whitepaper “Enhancing the value of core banking transformations” by SunTec, talks about how core banking renewals continue to be an “Over my dead body” program for most CIOs with the risk of a failed project looming large – and how to be truly beneficial, transformation programs must go beyond being a mere renewal exercise. The business case for such a program can be strengthened if the renewal is converted to a true transformation program. This could then lead to both top line and bottom line outcomes that could make the undertaking of the transformation program worthwhile. This journey has to consider the delivery of a superior customer experience as its central objective, which would in turn become the true driver of success.

STRATEGIES FOR GUARDING AGAINST HEALTHCARE CYBER THREATS


Emerging cyber threats

From 2012-2013, HIPAA data breaches rose 138 percent, with medical-related identity theft accounting for 43 percent of all identity thefts reported in the U.S. in 2013.

Medical-device manufacturers are being singled out as the primary target in 2014. The reason for all this unwanted attention is simple: healthcare data is approximately 50 times more valuable on the black market than credit card data because it exposes information such as a person’s height, eye color and other physical characteristics, which can be used to create comprehensive fake identities Healthcare security systems, however, are lagging compared to other industries in addressing this problem.

AWS Cloud Security Report for Risk & Security Professionals


Key Takeaways

AWS Is Serious About Information Security

There has been too much hype about cloud security being different and inherently insecure. Cloud security is no different from other solutions we deploy. Security pros should apply the same security standards to cloud workloads applied to on-premises workloads.

In The AWS World, Security Is A Shared Responsibility

AWS is not going to secure your applications or software infrastructure for you. AWS’ responsibility stops at the abstraction point between its services and the applications you deploy. It’s up to security and risk pros to engineer the correct security atop AWS. AWS provides key security building blocks, but it’s still your responsibility.

AWS Demonstrates Strong Cloud Security Processes and Controls

AWS has a very comprehensive security program for its platform. AWS has foundational security controls for its services that enable customers to build secure applications. Where AWS does not have a solution, third parties are working to provide security technology as SaaS and virtual appliances for the AWS environment.
