LONDON, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA Insurance Group plc, a leading multinational insurer, has deployed the multi-award winning CloudMargin platform for its over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives and Repo portfolios. CloudMargin is the world's first cloud-based, end-to-end collateral and margin management tool. Dan Ferguson, Group Treasurer of RSA Group, said: "This innovative tool is a great fit for RSA as we have a variety of instruments we need to collateralise on a daily basis. It is helping us address the significant operational challenges we will face from impending regulations effective March 1 for users of non-cleared derivatives. RSA's infrastructure for managing derivatives must keep pace with our strategic and operational objectives as well as changes in the regulatory environment. As a result of implementing CloudMargin, RSA has been able to automate the derivative and collateral management work flow, saving valuable resources, enhancing controls and protecting the business against changes in the regulatory landscape." It took less than two weeks to get RSA Insurance Group onboarded and fully functioning on the platform. The Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based technology behind CloudMargin allows firms to automate and optimise their collateral management processes at a fraction of the cost of other solutions available in the marketplace. CloudMargin also supports regulatory compliance through enhancements which deliver automated reconciliation and reporting solutions via approved vendors. Steve Husk, CEO of CloudMargin, said: "Insurers, which have long used derivatives to hedge their risks, are experiencing the same pressures to cut costs and create efficiencies as other financial institutions. CloudMargin's ability to aggregate data, automate margin calls and streamline communication is ideal for forward-thinking insurance companies like RSA Insurance Group that demand best-in-class solutions to support compliance and efficiency requirements." He added: "RSA's strategic step of onboarding CloudMargin means it has laid a foundation for the future. Those insurers who move more quickly to embrace the cloud will gain a competitive advantage that others may struggle to match, especially as firms look to operate within the new regulatory landscape." CloudMargin is built to handle complex collateral requirements with multiple counterparties. The platform also provides automated connectivity to global custodians, banks, clearing brokers and clearing houses in order to manage collateral across all asset types and instruments. With a 300 year heritage, RSA is a multinational quoted insurance group. Focusing on general insurance, RSA's core markets are the UK & Ireland, Scandinavia and Canada, with the capability to write insurance business in over 100 countries. RSA's core businesses have around 13,500 employees with net written premiums of £6.3bn in 2016. Headquartered in London, CloudMargin created the world's first cloud-based collateral management workflow tool, which has earned eight different industry awards since 2015 for innovation and best-in-class technology. The firm's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model is helping many of the leading financial institutions globally – including exchanges, brokerage firms, banks, asset management firms and insurance companies – meet time-critical regulatory deadlines and reduce costs associated with collateral requirements that are growing dramatically. CloudMargin bypasses many of the shortfalls of legacy, on-premise software, enabling clients to experience rapid implementation and access to robust and secure collateral management workflow software.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RSA® Conference, the world’s leading information security conferences and expositions, today concluded its 26th annual event in San Francisco. A record number of more than 43,000 attendees experienced keynotes, peer-to-peer sessions, track sessions, tutorials and seminars. "Leading up to RSA Conference 2017 it could have been argued that this event was the most anticipated in our history," said Linda Gray Martin, Director & General Manager of RSA Conference. "Over the last few months information security has experienced both tremendous highs, and weathered scrutiny of lows as experts in private and public sectors debated various practices of information sharing. As a result of this increased exposure, it was critical to have an RSA Conference full of constructive dialog, discussion and debate that will form the information security agenda and continue to move our industry forward. We hope our attendees took this powerful opportunity as the chance to help forge a future we can all be proud of." The 20th Annual RSA Conference Awards program highlighted the work of three security professionals in the fields of mathematics, public policy and security practices. This year’s winners included: RSAC Unplugged London will take place on June 8, 2017. RSA Conference 2017 Asia Pacific & Japan takes place July 26-28, 2017 in Singapore. Additionally, RSA Conference returns to Abu Dhabi November 7-8, 2017.

We are always excited to be at the RSA conference. Engaging with the smartest infosec professionals from our customers, partners and the community provides us with important input into our strategy and roadmaps. The increasing size of this event illustrates the growing importance and investment that every company is making in information security. And that is good for us all.” - Jeff Samuels, VP Security Marketing, Cisco “RSA Conference 2017 brought together the business and government community at the forefront of the dramatic changes reshaping cybersecurity. This year’s conference provided a valuable backdrop for us to discuss critical issues like the need for new approaches to endpoint protection, and the challenge of eliminating the cost and complexity of security operations. FireEye places a high priority on threat intelligence and the insights learned on the frontlines of today’s cyber breaches, and RSA Conference 2017 reflected the defining developments we see emerging from the continually evolving threat landscape.” - Kara Wilson, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, FireEye "This year's RSA Conference challenged a big industry audience to think small. Small are the attack surfaces of security cameras, home routers, and mobile devices increasingly populating our office and home work environments. Small are the diverse data transactions that require innumerable protective measures. Big are the shifts in thinking that require us to think of ourselves as small players inside a vast ecosystem of solution providers. Thinking small is the first step in working together more effectively, and having a big impact with better outcomes." - Chris Young, General Manager and SVP, Intel Security “Security is a team sport. Splunk customers want solutions that work together in a coordinated and automated manner, using data, analytics, next generation firewalls, threat intelligence and other technologies to defend and protect against threats in real-time. We clearly saw at RSA Conference 2017 that the industry is moving in this direction. We heard repeatedly this year how emerging threats are disrupting and negatively impacting businesses across the globe, but the spirit of collaboration, powered by industry advancements in analytics and orchestration, were on full display at RSA.” - Haiyan Song, Senior Vice President of Security Markets, Splunk “In 2017 we continue to see a wide variety of attack types, yet many teams out there tell us they lack the proper tools or skills to address threats comprehensively. RSAC 2017 provided a valuable platform for the infosec community to come together and share ideas on how to pragmatically reduce risk for our organizations. With so many considerations – regulatory compliance, cloud, industrial OT environments – one message came through clearly: foundational security controls are more important than ever to establish resilient Infosec capabilities that deliver effective security regardless of what comes at you.” - Dwayne Melancon, Vice President of Products, Tripwire RSA Conference is the premier series of global events where the world talks security and leadership gathers, advances and emerges.

Since 2003, the Lombardy region has introduced a case-mix reimbursement system for nursing homes based on the SOSIA form which classifies residents into eight classes of frailty. In the present study the agreement between SOSIA classification and other well documented instruments, including Barthel Index, Mini Mental State Examination and Clinical Dementia Rating Scale is evaluated in 100 nursing home residents. Only 50% of residents with severe dementia have been recognized as seriously impaired when assessed with SOSIA form; since misclassification errors underestimate residents' care needs, they determine an insufficient reimbursement limiting nursing home possibility to offer care appropriate for the case-mix.
