Regardless of the size of the vehicles, and often despite the utmost caution, operating vehicles can be a risky endeavor.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, highway accidents accounted for 37,461 deaths in the U.S. in 2016.1 Moreover, a recent study by Motus, a vehicle management and reimbursement platform, found that 40% of all motor vehicle accidents are work-related and cost employers a staggering $56.7 billion in 2017, taking into account medical expenses, property damage, increased insurance premiums, and lost productivity.2 While liability insurance is an important way for employers to address that risk, it’s by no means a panacea. Companies can and should be doing more to lessen the likelihood of accidents in the first place. And given that the vast majority (94%, according to NHTSA’s study) stem from driver-related actions or inactions as opposed to equipment malfunctions, one of the most important ways of doing so is to ensure that the in
Collaboration among compliance safety, and risk
DS Services, a distributor of leading beverage brands to residential and business customers, employs more than 3,500 drivers nationwide. Tracking its drivers – and ensuring they’re qualified to be behind the wheel – isn’t easy. “Reviewing motor vehicle records (MVRs) can take weeks, as every state reports violation information differently,” says Jason Gay, DOT compliance administrator for DS Services. “I was spending 12 to 15 hours a week on paperwork alone. It was time to simplify the process.”
DS Services originally turned to SambaSafety to help reduce paperwork and increase efficiency; however, by incorporating continuous driver monitoring into its safety program, DS Services is able to impact its business in . other positive ways.

It is common belief that automation of existing processes and implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system can help organizations with their strategic objectives and seamlessly translate into operational excellence. While a modern ERP system certainly provides companies with many benefits, it does not necessarily translate to optimal business performance.
With networks sprawling to massive proportions and malicious activity hitting hard, fast, and constantly evolving, situational awareness is more vital than ever in keeping your network secure. Situational awareness refers to the continuous monitoring of your network by analyzing bulk data collected from sources across the board. In other words, it delivers a detailed overview of all areas of your network so you know exactly what’s going on through increased visibility and response capabilities.
This guide describes the need for continuous monitoring and offers a blueprint for creating a continuous security practice. As a result, continuous monitoring will give your organization the most comprehensive view of its global perimeter, and empower you to proactively identify and address potential threats enabled by vulnerabilities in software or weak system configurations.

"This Gartner report charts your course to the future of information security with Gartner’s “continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment” (CARTA) as your guide.
This reports highlights a need for security and risk management leaders to embrace a strategic approach where security is adaptive, everywhere, all the time. Gartner calls this strategic approach ""continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment,"" or CARTA.
By reading “Seven Imperatives to Adopt a CARTA Strategic Approach,” you will gain insight into CARTA and better understand the people, process and technical changes it calls for, including:
-Replacing one-time security gates with adaptive, context-aware security platforms.
-Continuously discovering, monitoring, assessing and prioritizing risk and trust — reactively and proactively.
-Performing risk and trust assessments early in digital business initiatives, including development.
-Instrumenting for comprehensive, full-stack visibility, including sensitive data handling.
Large organizations can no longer rely on preventive security systems, point security tools, manual processes, and hardened configurations to protect them from targeted attacks and advanced malware.
Henceforth, security management must be based upon continuous monitoring and data analysis for up-to-the-minute situational awareness and rapid data-driven security decisions. This means that large organizations have entered the era of data security analytics.

The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) provides a cost-effective, risk-based approach for the adoption and use of cloud services by U.S. government agencies. FedRAMP processes are designed to assist federal government agencies in meeting Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requirements for cloud systems. By standardizing on security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, this program delivers costs savings, accelerated adoption, and increased confidence in security to U.S. government agencies that are adopting cloud technologies.
With enhanced regulatory pressure, banks must continuously evaluate their risks. To meet these demands, the AML industry has turned to analytical/statistical methodologies to reduce false-positive alerts, increase monitoring coverage and reduce the rapidly escalating financial cost of maintaining their AML programs. An effective AML transaction monitoring strategy includes segmenting the customer base by analyzing customer activity and risk characteristics in order to monitor them more effectively. This paper explains how to blend both quantitative and qualitative methods to tune scenarios to identify the activity that poses the most risk to the bank.

Continuous Monitoring has become an overused and overhyped term in security circles, driven by US Government mandate (now called Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation). But that doesn’t change the fact that monitoring needs to be a cornerstone of your security program, within the context of a risk-based paradigm. This paper from Securosis discusses Continuous Security Monitoring, including how to do it, and the most applicable use cases they have seen in the real world. It also provides a step-by-step guide for things to do for each use case to move forward with a monitoring initiative.
Enhanced regulatory pressure requires continuous evaluation of your bank’s risks. To meet these demands, the AML industry has turned to analytical/statistical methodologies to:
• Improve monitoring programs.
• Reduce false-positive alerts.
• Increase monitoring coverage.
• Reduce the rapidly escalating financial cost of maintaining AML programs.
