Modern Governance 3.0: Modern Governance Extends Beyond the Boardroom to Allow Secure Sharing of Files and Collaboration with Auditors, Regulators and Other Third Parties

Share

In its next major extension to support modern governance, Diligent announced today the launch of Secure File Sharing and Secure Meeting Workflow applications, as part of the Diligent Governance Cloud. These groundbreaking applications enable completely secure collaboration not only between board members and executives, but also reaching beyond the boardroom including auditors, regulators and other key third party stakeholders. This significantly raises the bar on security and information governance for organizations operating in this digital, mobile and social era.

In today’s fast-paced world, threats come at light speed – from every angle. Leading organizations must set increasingly higher standards to protect against cyber attacks and leaks, while at the same time work collaboratively with more outside parties. Even competent leaders can have blind spots when it comes to the handling of highly sensitive files, specifically in preparation for a board meeting, sharing documents haphazardly with limited controls and visibility into who has access. Modern governance demands another level of security for data within your organization – one that goes beyond even normal file storage systems.

Diligent Secure Meeting Workflow and Secure File Sharing enable secure, controlled collaboration that helps organizations level up their security and lock down risk – supporting the practices of leading CISOs and CIOs. By offering Secure Meeting Workflow and Secure File Sharing applications as integrated components of the Governance Cloud offering, Diligent enables a comprehensive communication framework for critical documents and facilitates their use in collaboration beyond the board and executive team, down through the organization and even outside of the organization where necessary.

“In today’s high-stakes environment, board members and leadership teams need a closed-loop solution that enables them to effectively collaborate on critically sensitive documents, not just their board materials, without exposure to leaks or attacks,” said Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent. “And while our solutions have always provided the utmost security within the boardroom, I am proud to expand the Governance Cloud to support file sharing and collaboration outside of the boardroom – down through the organization and with auditors, bankers, regulators and other third parties. Modern governance requires protecting a company’s most important data at an even higher standard, and we now enable that secure, controlled collaboration, during board meeting preparation and beyond.”

Diligent Secure Meeting Workflow enables a structured and totally secure board meeting preparation process, including the ability to confidently share and collaborate on ultra-sensitive files with a carefully controlled group of internal and external stakeholders. By operationalizing and securing the meeting preparation process within a straightforward, easy-to-use application, Secure Meeting Workflow comprehensively displaces the use of non-secure email and messaging applications to communicate sensitive information to the board.

Diligent Secure File Sharing gives leaders a completely trusted private space, available exclusively to them for the distribution and storage of sensitive documents. This private space – including IT shielding that is lacking in standard file storage systems – supports sharing and collaboration on documents confidentially with specifically selected individuals or groups.

"AEGIS has been a Diligent customer for several years. For us, Diligent Boards is an essential tool for confidentially and reliably disseminating board materials and related information. We are very pleased to learn that Diligent is now able to support secure collaboration during our board meeting preparation process.” said Mark A. Walsh, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for AEGIS Insurance Services, Inc. “We look forward to having a tool for our meeting preparation process that will deliver the same standards of efficiency, innovation, and ease of use that we have come to rely on from Diligent."

These new applications are built from the mature technology acquired from Brainloop AG, the leading supplier of board portal and secure collaboration solutions used within the enterprise for high-security collaboration on confidential documents. Providing secure cloud storage for enterprises in Germany and throughout continental Europe, Brainloop is used by 70% of Germany’s DAX 30-listed companies.

Bempedoic Acid Lowers LDL-Cholesterol without Adversely Impacting Glycaemic Control in Pooled Analyses of Phase 3 Trials Presented at the American Heart Association 2019 Scientific Sessions18.11.2019 10:00:00 EETPress release

Daiichi Sankyo Europe GmbH (hereafter, ‘Daiichi Sankyo’) today announced the results of two pooled analyses from four Phase 3 clinical trials of bempedoic acid which were presented at the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions in Philadelphia. Bempedoic acid is currently undergoing review for marketing authorisation by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). One presentation highlighted that bempedoic acid reduced haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) by 0.19% versus placebo in patients with diabetes at 12 weeks.2 HbA1c is a standard measure of glycaemic control used in diabetes management. The analysis also showed that patients on bempedoic acid had fewer instances of new-onset diabetes as well as hyperglycaemia than those on placebo.2 The pooled analysis suggests that bempedoic acid does not have an adverse impact on glycaemic control in patients with and without diabetes when added to a stable background of lipid lowering ther
