    BraveIT is an interactive, thought leadership event designed for the modern IT professional who is tasked with navigating opportunity and risk in a mission-critical world. The live event is taking place in Chicago on 9/13, we hope you'll join us for the live stream if you are unable to attend in person.

    In this era of accelerating opportunity and risk, IT decision-making evolves constantly. And while the propagation of possibilities fuels innovation and growth, it also makes it increasingly difficult to keep pace; to continuously optimize mission-critical strategies in the face of new threats and persistent change. Although your master plan may be established and stable, you know it can’t be static. Fine tuning it regularly is a required exercise in business optimization, product differentiation, and risk mitigation. That’s why BraveIT is an essential part of your yearly planning cycle. It keeps you current with industry best practices and best-in-class implementations, pressure tests your operating assumptions and enriches your plans for a broad range of potential events and opportunities—all while connecting you with peers and partners who are facing similar challenges.

    As IT professionals face daunting challenges to combat the likes of hackers and shrinking budgets, we recognize your heroics in changing the dialogue from “no” to “how.”

  • From Hurricanes to Hackers: The Expanding Horizons for Disaster Recovery
    From Hurricanes to Hackers: The Expanding Horizons for Disaster Recovery David Hines, TierPoint - Vice President of Architecture and Engineering Recorded: Aug 22 2018 52 mins
    Business disruptions are not just inconvenient but can significantly damage a company’s reputation and bottom line. Many businesses are turning to Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solutions as they have effectively solved for downtime and data loss due to weather, system failures and human error. Moreover, DRaaS solutions are effective against cyber threats. Indeed, it’s not just the weather we should be worried about when it comes to disasters.

    One of the fastest growing types of attacks in recent years is ransomware. When infected, files and data are locked down and held hostage until a ransom is paid to the anonymous attacker. Due to the nature of DRaaS solutions, your organization is protected against ransomware thanks to available, continuous copies (or snapshots) of your data as well as processes to help fail back to regular operations.

    In this session, David Hines, Vice President of Architecture and Engineering at TierPoint will review the latest in ransomware tactics, and how to best prevent malware from entering the network in the first place. Sometimes, however, this is unavoidable and having a plan to mitigate the damage is a necessity.

  • Enterprise IT Shifts Off-Premises: Cloud, Data, and Digital Transformation
    Enterprise IT Shifts Off-Premises: Cloud, Data, and Digital Transformation Melanie Posey, 451 Research Recorded: Jun 14 2018 62 mins
    Digital transformation initiatives such as business intelligence/analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and big data are top priorities for IT organizations in 2018. Toward that end, according to a recent 451 Research survey, a full 60% of more than 1,000 IT leaders surveyed report that they plan to run the majority of their IT off-premises by year-end 2019, including public cloud and SaaS.

    At the same time, a number of organizational, cultural, and technology challenges have kept almost two-thirds of IT executives from developing formal digital transformation strategies.

    What is the path forward? What does the off-premise landscape look like? What are the key elements of a successful strategy?

    Melanie Posey, research vice president and general manager, Voice of the Enterprise at 451 Research will delve into the data and strategies IT organizations are implementing to facilitate this strategic shift and arrive at the point where they can focus on helping differentiate their business, rather than merely keeping the lights on.

    Evolving Cyber Threats: Targeting the Hidden Attack Surface of Automation Carl Herberger - Radware, Vice President, Global Security Solutions; host: Paul Mazzucco, TierPoint Chief Security Officer Recorded: Dec 7 2017 50 mins
    Every day, we hear about Artificial Intelligence (AI) invading more and more of everything around us. Within Information Security, we cannot get around new algorithms, new machine learning techniques, and a rush to automate everything. However, have these new technologies paradoxically ushered in a completely new world of vulnerabilities?

    In this webinar for technical and non-technical business leaders, Carl Herberger, Radware’s Vice President of Global Security Solutions, explores a fascinating topic of how everything from APIs to people are being attacked in a new, hidden attack surface with a unique ability to cloak and anonymize its designers, and which has incredible speed and efficiency in its attack types. This presentation will highlight how each step towards deeper and total connectivity comes with consequences of needing to protect the very automation designed to make our world easy. In this session, you will learn how everything from humans to bots have weak undersides to automation and even AI interfaces can be duped into attacks.

    A frequent guest of Fox Business News, CNN, CBS Evening News, CNBC and Bloomberg Broadcast News, along with numerous NYT, WSJ and Washington Post citations, Herberger will share his insights and answer your questions about this important topic.

  • The Frontline Is Everywhere: New Perspectives on Defense in Depth
    The Frontline Is Everywhere: New Perspectives on Defense in Depth Brian Anderson, Director of Security Product Management Recorded: Nov 8 2017 60 mins
    As today’s businesses come under attack from increasingly malicious cyber threats, a traditional “defense in depth” strategy may become insufficient to effectively fend off attackers and prevent business disruptions and downtime. As mobility, IoT, and BYOD open new attack vectors and attacks become more sophisticated, the situation only worsens. While 100% prevention is impossible, rapid identification and containment is not.

In this live webinar, TierPoint Director of Security Product Management, Brian Anderson will discuss why we need to redefine defense in depth approaches to safeguard data from emerging threats.

Join Brian as he shares insight into the following key considerations when developing a better, more comprehensive security strategy:

    • The implications of the disappearing network edge.
    • Why a traditional “defense in depth” approach, while still a good start, is no longer sufficient
    • Keys to rapid identification and containment
    • How visibility, detection, escalation, and automated response help close the loop
