Customer relationship management (CRM) deployments are most effective when they legitimately support all three words that make up the acronym itself. Customers of the modern business-to-business (B2B) enterprise benefit when they purchase goods and services from companies who are focused on the buyer’s experience. Internal relationships within the selling organization are more effectively maintained when all customer-facing stakeholders have access to the rich data contained in a well-maintained CRM. And the management of the enterprise providing solutions can run their business like a finely-tuned machine when the maximum levels of visibility into customers and accounts are clear and accurate. This Research Brief combines research from a number of Aberdeen Sales Effectiveness research data sets, to create a holistic view of the most effectively deployed CRM systems.

Businesses face an increasingly complex set of threats to their Web applications—from malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) to disgruntled employees and unintentional data leaks. Although there is no single security measure than can prevent all threats, there are some that provide broad-based mitigation to a number of threats. The use of SSL encryption and digital certificate-based authentication is one of them. Changes in the way we deliver services, the increasing use of mobile devices, and the adoption of cloud computing compounded by the ever-evolving means of stealing information and compromising services leave Web applications vulnerable to attack.
In this chapter, we turn our attention to the combined risk of losing data and losing customer trust.
Learn how to properly select the right real-time security options for your organization and see how the right actionable security intelligence will allow for safer and more secure data and security operations.

Financial institutions (FIs) must support the channels and services that consumers demand in order to remain competitive with each other and with disruptive competitors. To that end, supporting account opening, delivering new transactional features, and facilitating payments through digital channels have become table stakes. Unfortunately, the speed and convenience that these capabilities afford is a benefit to consumers and fraudsters alike. To successfully prevent fraud while retaining the benefits of offering digital financial services, FIs must understand how fraudsters are exploiting these capabilities and fight fraud with customer experience in mind.
In this white paper, John Pescatore of SANS Institute explores how DDoS is used as part of advanced targeted attacks (ATAs) and describes how DDoS detection and prevention tools and techniques can be used against ATAs as well. Today’s DDoS attacks, as damaging as they are, sometimes mask even more threatening and dangerous advanced targeted threats. The good news is that some of the same tools that can detect the footprints of DDoS attacks can also find the telltale signs of ATAs. To be successful, though, enterprises need to coordinate their use of both types of logs and adjust their monitoring parameters correctly. They must also eliminate operational gaps, such as unclear lines of security authority, and limit the use of managed security services that can deprive enterprise security managers of the data they need to detect and stop DDoS attacks and ATAs.

Good analysis and benchmarking of hotline data helps organisations answer crucial questions about their ethics and compliance programme.
Comparing internal data year over year to help answer these questions is important. But getting a broader perspective on how your performance matches up to industry norms is critical. To help, each year NAVEX Global takes anonymised data collected through our hotline and incident management systems to create these reports. This particular report is the second NAVEX Global benchmark report we have published that focuses specifically on the status of ethics and compliance hotline services in the EMEA and APAC regions. This benchmark only takes reporting data from organisations that has its data warehoused in Europe—a subset of the data used in our global hotline report.
