Data management is becoming more and more central to the business model of enterprises. The time when data was looked at as little more than the byproduct of automation is long gone, and today we see enterprises vigorously engaged in trying to unlock maximum value from their data, even to the extent of directly monetizing it. Yet, many of these efforts are hampered by immature data governance and management practices stemming from a legacy that did not pay much attention to data. Part of this problem is a failure to understand that there are different types of data, and each type of data has its own special characteristics, challenges and concerns. Reference data is a special type of data. It is essentially codes whose basic job is to turn other data into meaningful business information and to provide an informational context for the wider world in which the enterprise functions. This paper discusses the challenges associated with implementing a reference data management solution and the essential components of any vision for the governance and management of reference data. It covers the following topics in some detail: · What is reference data? · Why is reference data management important? · What are the challenges of reference data management? · What are some best practices for the governance and management of reference data? · What capabilities should you look for in a reference data solution?

"Financial services institutions are high-value targets for cyberattacks because of the capital they control, the personal information on customers they maintain, and the fear an attack on a bank generates in the public. Phishing attacks on FSIs have risen steadily, especially employee credential theft - because once an employee’s credentials are stolen, cyberattackers can access customer information, employee data, even finances. While legacy security solutions claim to block up to 99.9 percent of cyberattacks, all it takes is one employee or contractor to open an email from an unknown source, download a file from a compromised website, or in any other way fall victim to a cyberattack. So, it’s time for a new approach: Isolation, also known as, remote browsing. Download this Financial Services Best Practices Guide to Isolation to learn how to best eliminate phishing attacks and web malware. "
