    You’re Perfect, You’re Doomed. A psychological examination into cybersecurity.
    Paul Mazzucco, Chief Security Officer | TierPoint Recorded: Apr 11 2019 45 mins
    TierPoint’s Chief Security Officer, Paul Mazzucco, is an expert in the field of human behavior and cybersecurity, and in this presentation, Mr. Mazzucco examines the natural human tendency to fear the unknown and how this has consequences on today’s IT leaders, namely for the data and people they attempt to protect. Mr. Mazzucco will also highlight how attackers leverage these psychological vulnerabilities for attacks in Phishing, Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

    Attendees will learn about the latest tactics attackers are using to exploit cybersecurity efforts, and they will also understand how to address the tension between the unknown of what an attacker is capable of doing versus what an IT leader can proactively do to avoid organizational complacency and security vulnerabilities.

    In addition to Paul’s security duties at TierPoint, Paul Mazzucco is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) answering to the FBI, the United States Secret Service, Pennsylvania Electronic Crimes Task Force (PAECT) and the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (U.S. CERT).

  • The Software-Defined Data Center: A Foundation for Digital Transformation
    The Software-Defined Data Center: A Foundation for Digital Transformation
    David Hines, Vice President of Architecture and Engineering - TierPoint Recorded: Jan 22 2019 47 mins
    As reported in Forbes last year, 73% of companies are planning to move to a fully software-defined data center within two years.

    A software-defined data center is based on a virtualized environment of compute, storage, networking and security in conjunction with policy-based management and automation. The evolution from a traditional data center architecture to one that is software-defined can take months if not years but can yield immense benefits for the business.

    Join us for a discussion on the progress toward the fully software-defined data center, including benefits of infrastructure as code and overcoming challenges associated with traditional workflows.
