    Discover How to Increase Data Security in Your Mobile Data Collection with New Workspaces and Expanded Security Settings

    SurveyCTO Collect is even more secure now. Best practices such as industry-leading end-to-end encryption, GDPR-compliant setupsSOC 2 Type 1 certification are already baked into the product, but in our latest release, we’ve added a new set of options to help you improve data security and organize your work. With this new addition, you can be confident you’re using a tool with unmatched security.

    If you work on data collection projects for multiple clients or outsource data collection to other organizations, then you’re probably familiar with the hassle of keeping track of various information. To do so, you may even use different ways to separate forms, data, and settings on SurveyCTO Collect. But now you can easily keep things organized using the new SurveyCTO Collect “workspaces”. These new spaces will allow you to clearly separate and restrict forms, data, and settings in each device across different servers, teams, or projects.

    Join us on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, at 1 PM UTC / 9 AM EST for our next webinar, where you’ll learn about the new data security improvements.

    As data collection becomes increasingly decentralized, it’s critical to have control over certain mobile settings from the server-side. With this latest release, the new server-side mobile settings will help you gain more control over devices’ security and enforce your organization’s information security policies.

    What you’ll learn

    In this webinar, discover how to leverage these new SurveyCTO functionalities to your use case as we explore the following:

    • Setting up SurveyCTO Collect workspaces
    • Configuring workspaces for different servers, teams, or projects; each with its own forms and settings
    • Customizing new mobile security settings, such as requiring dedicated workspaces, on the server-side to lock down data on the mobile devices connected to your server
    • Enforcing your organization’s information security policies across devices and using new security options and restrictions at the user role level
    • And much more!

    With these new features, you’ll be able to step up your game and increase your data and information security policy enforcement across all your users, devices, and projects.

    The Circular Carbon Economy: Managing Carbon Holistically

    Overview

    Climate change is a growing challenge, with global carbon emissions increasing rapidly and greenhouse gas concentrations at record levels. If we are to reach the Paris climate agreement target of limiting the rise in global temperature to below 2°C, the transition needed will have huge effects on global economic growth.

    An essential approach to mitigating carbon emissions is to embrace the circular economy. Endorsed by the G20 energy ministers in September 2020, the circular carbon economy (CCE) approach incorporates clean technologies such as carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) to store carbon underground, along with processes that turn CO2 into value-added products. The “four Rs” of CCE aim to reduce the amount of carbon that must be managed, reuse and convert emissions to valuable products, recycle carbon through natural processes and remove emissions from the system altogether.

    The majority of greenhouse gases are emitted by the production of new materials and products, but following the covid-19 pandemic there is renewed resolve among manufacturers to focus on circular approaches. CCE enables all sectors and industries to collaborate in using available technologies and carbon-mitigation options for emissions reduction, and it provides solutions for research and policy in all markets. There is huge potential for the manufacturing and production ecosystem to integrate circular carbon systems at all levels, enabling industrial symbiosis, preventing emissions and creating climate-friendly structures that support sustainable development.

    Join the Saudi Industrial Development Fund (SIDF) and The Economist Events for The Circular Carbon Economy: Managing carbon holistically, a virtual event bringing together industry leaders, policymakers, regulators and academics for a practical discussion on the policy and regulatory reforms needed to successfully advance clean-energy technologies and innovation.

    The Economist’s Climate Risk Virtual Week

    The Economist’s Climate Risk Virtual Week convenes thought leaders, investors, regulators, policy makers, sustainability professionals and scientists to delve deep into conversations about the impact that climate-related risks will have on businesses and how management can respond.

    They will assess the best ways of measuring the exposure to physical and transition risk and how to improve disclosure and how to mitigate the threats from climate change litigation. They will put scenario analysis in practice so you can understand the implications of climate change for your business. The flip side of risk is opportunity –  identifying opportunities to enhance and develop new products and services based on a better understanding of climate risk will play a big part.

    Over three days, they discuss the case for speedy action on climate risk.

    On Day 1 we look at climate change risk management within the financial services, Day 2 tackles the impact of climate change on high-impact sectors and Day 3 puts scenario analysis in practice, as well as highlighting some of the climate change market opportunities you can tap into.
