Darktrace: The Importance of Email Implementation
Email is the front door into an organisation and humans typically manage it. However, with phishing attacks becoming more targeted and sophisticated, and increasing cases of account takeover and data loss due to a successful email attack, humans alone can no longer be relied on to protect the inbox. Fortunately for businesses, there are email security solutions - Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies - that can help.
Join Dr Eric Cole, CEO and Founder of Secure Anchor Consulting, and Mariana Pereira, Director at Darktrace, as they discuss email security and why organisations now, more than ever, need to treat it as a top priority. In this podcast, the pair explore how to secure enterprise inboxes with AI. Mariana leads the conversation by sharing her knowledge and expertise on the current threat landscape for email in 2021, the use of AI in email security, and the key factors decision-makers should consider when determining the best AI system. The discussion ends with a look at a real-life case study of an email attack autonomously stopped by AI.

Fixing the Money Laundering Problem in Tech with Napier
One of the biggest problems when managing data is that vast quantities of it is scattered across data silos and multiple systems. The primary issue this causes is the inability to shape your business to your customers' demands. What's often forgotten about is that when that data also has transactional information, it becomes hard to monitor suspicious activities from within your business. This is where money laundering becomes a fear.
Regularly, industries rely on legacy systems, however this has proved ineffective as over $2 trillion is laundered every year. Financial sectors spend over $180 billion on anti-money laundering capabilities to catch less than 1% of the financial criminals responsible. 66% of this is spent on staff and with the volume of transactions increasing exponentially, it's easy to understand that simply scaling teams to manually trawl through this data is unsustainable. Increasingly, financial organisations are looking to new technologies to provide assistance.
The key is to invest in the right kind of anti money laundering (or AML) software, but how do you know where to start? In this podcast, Chief AI Officer at Napier Luca Primerano and CTO of Napier Nick Portalski talk about the problems with modern approaches to AML, the potential of AI as a solution to problems in the compliance space and what the future of AML looks like.
Navigating Around the Cybersecurity Pandemic
2020 was comprised of big data breaches, leaks and new obstacles, leading to what many have dubbed a "Cybersecurity Pandemic." Surviving in these difficult times has been hard and more often than not, it's the people that suffer; in fact, 58% of breaches in the last year involved some level of personal data. The Cybersecurity Pandemic has affected so many people and organisations that the worldwide cybercrime spending is estimated to reach $6 trillion this year, a sharp increase from $1 trillion in the year before.
In this EM360 podcast, we spoke to Raghu Nandakumara of Illumio about the best ways to navigate around this cybersecurity pandemic, the importance of the Zero Trust Model and the best ways to mitigate the impact of high-profile breaches in 2021.
UCaaS in Hybrid Workplaces
Technology as a service is a methodological approach that seeks to place the importance of the customer's need at the forefront of the software. The world of Unified Communications saw the breakthrough of Unified Communications as a Service (or UCaaS) in around 2014 and it has since managed to leverage cloud technology to send requests and communicate across hybrid workplaces. The key with cloud technology, as always, is to simply and unify, but how does UCaaS allow organisations to achieve this goal?
Explaining the ins and outs of UCaaS is Anthony Cummings, Director of Infrastructure and Operations at Frank Recruitment. In this episode, Anthony gives us the basics in UCaaS 101, the advantages and use cases of it and the way it works in hybrid workplaces to support employees and business leaders alike.
2021 Zero Trust Report from Tempered
As a security framework that has rapidly developed over the last few years, "Zero Trust" has become a hot topic for many in the industry. Despite the huge amount of attention that Zero Trust is receiving, at this point 70% of reported correspondents have stated that they have no Zero Trust access projects underway or in place. The fear for many is having to struggle with the major technological shifts in strategy and architecture.
In this insightful EM360 podcast, we speak to Rich Langston, Director of Product Management at Tempered, about Tempered's latest Zero Trust Report. Implementing this security framework is essential for businesses; why not tune in today to find out what obstacles you need to know about?
How Strong Data Privacy Equals Positive CX
It's now widely accepted that customer experience (CX) knowledge now has a direct impact on a company's success, and if you don't know how to leverage that knowledge to make informed decisions, your company might not be reaching its full capabilities. The problem with focusing on CX is that it occasionally comes at the expense of organisations' security and it is also difficult to navigate around the separate global regulatory requirements. Whether you're navigating around GDPR or PIPA, improving a customer experience comes with the same difficulties.
Our guest today is Phillip Dunkelberger, CEO of Nok Nok Labs. Phillip knows exactly how focusing on CX can improve your organisation and, this time, we seized the opportunity to ask him some of the most important questions on this hot topic.
