Garnering value from legacy applications and processes challenges every enterprise when faced with the challenges of Big Data, Social Media and the Cloud. Strategically planning your transformation journey is critical for success. At HP Discover 2013, you’ll find a host of breakout sessions designed to help you clear the path for an uneventful trip.
Technological drivers like cloud, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) mobility, and Big Data have become deeply embedded into all operational aspects of the 21st century enterprise. This presents both peril and opportunity for the security of your operations as the old command-and-control strategies become increasingly ineffective.
Increasingly, the more perceptive security strategies understand that basic breach prevention is not the end game for securing the enterprise. Instead, security operations must fully integrate into the profit and growth driven process of the business as a whole. An enterprise that is resilient and focused on ensuring business continuity with minimal disruption of operations is more agile and at a competitive advantage. Security must be a business enabler and the strategy for security must move beyond mere incident prevention and mitigation and perform as a driver for growth.

As we learned in the Winter 2013 issue of Industry Edge, e-commerce is growing by leaps and bounds. But even as customer demand increases, so do security implications for the enterprises that provide it.
We caught up with Louis McKenna, Area Leader for HP Enterprise Security Services, to get his thoughts on this emerging area and the security barriers that face the retail industry as they work to implement new mobility options.

The global cost of cyber crime now exceeds $114 billion USD annually, significantly more than the market for marijuana, cocaine, and heroin combined.
As hackers boldly attack major corporations and pilfer customer information and cash, the daunting role of chief information security officers (CISO) is increasingly in the spotlight.
Although the CISO function has existed for years, cyber security is now so central to the mission and execution of an enterprise, regardless of what industry it’s in, that the role is becoming more visible among senior leaders.
The retail industry is facing a tall set of challenges as it enters 2013. The convergence of new trends in technology, economics and society are compelling retailers to transform their enterprise around the modern consumer.
As it begins to deal with these challenges, the industry will gather for its annual National Retail Federation (NRF)’s Annual Convention & Expo, also known as “Retail’s BIG Show,” January 14-15 in New York City. The Big Show hosts over 25,000 global retailers with representation from more than 80 countries.
We had an opportunity to discuss the changes in the Retail industry and the upcoming NRF Big Show with Saif Rivers, Retail Client Principal, HP Enterprise Services.
