Organizations use a lot of their resources to hire the best talent. So, after spending all that time and money to find an employee, the last thing they want is to have them leave.
Believe it or not, that’s exactly what happens. It’s not hard for employees to find a new job in today’s competitive business landscape. Organizations must do more than simply take action. They need to develop a comprehensive strategy to engage and retain talent.
As the workplace becomes more global, the skills mismatch grows, and the Trump administration focuses on immigration, more and more organizations are dealing with the challenges and intricacies of hiring foreign nationals.

When it comes to the threat landscape, it’s important to take a look in the rearview mirror once in a while.
As with driving, not only do you get a good look at what’s behind you, but you can often spot what’s coming up quick, set to overtake you.
That’s the spirit of this threat report. We’ve picked out five key stories from the last year or so, not just because they were big events, but because we think these threats, or similar ones, could very well appear in the near future. Take modular threats like Emotet and VPNFilter, for example.
These are threats that can deliver an on-demand menu of attacks and threats, depending on which device is infected or the intended goal of the attacker. We saw plenty of such modular threats in recent history, and wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in the future.
Email remains the darling delivery method of attackers, with threats from cryptomining to Emotet using it to spread. It’s also highly likely that other threats, such as unauthorized M
In our latest survey report, we explore the growth challenges facing businesses and HR leaders in a rapidly changing landscape.
We surveyed over 500 HR leaders in leading organisations to explore their views on these challenges, and to find out how they are supporting people and leveraging people data to help them achieve their growth goals.
The survey revealed that:
• It’s the war for talent, again. The greatest challenges for growing companies are winning the war for talent, growing productivity and improving workforce visibility.
• Fast-growth companies share common traits in the way they manage and engage their people—we call this being a People Company.
• There’s a disconnect between managers and employees in terms of what being a People Company means.
• Becoming a People Company is a journey, with many organisations some way from embracing all aspects.
• People Science is a thing: there’s an appetite to leverage people data and analytics, but there are blockers in the way.
The way we work has completely transformed. New technology is changing how, where and when we work. In this new landscape, businesses face challenges around growth, talent acquisition and productivity. Employers need to embrace new technology to get ahead in
this new world of work, and put people at the heart of their strategy. However, HR and People leaders are in fierce competition for that all-important slice of budget and that makes building the strongest business case for technology investment vital.
This guide is designed to help HR and People leaders like you get the financial support you need. You’ll get practical, effective tips on:
• Understanding and explaining the true benefits of investing in a new HR system and likely return on investment
• Positioning HR as a leader of change throughout your business

A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?
How adopting a framework can optimize cybersecurity
Today’s threat landscape has created new challenges for security analysts and incident responders, as the number of alerts and their complexity have increased significantly. Organizations with small IT teams are overwhelmed, often lacking the time or resources to investigate every alert. Failing to do so means a high-risk threat might go unnoticed. This can result in a devastating breach, damaging an organization's finances and reputation.
This white paper discusses how CrowdStrike is solving these challenges, by implementing the MITRE ATT&CK™ Framework across multiple CrowdStrike processes and product features to help improve analyst’s productivity and prevent breaches. This provides many benefits, including time savings; adding advanced context to security alerts and information; and enabling a common, shared language. However, it also provides some hidden advantages, especially concerning cybersecurity.
