  • Targeted Attacks: A Review of Current Trends and Future Developments
    Targeted Attacks: A Review of Current Trends and Future Developments David Emm, Principal Security Researcher, Kaspersky Lab (Global Research & Analysis Team) Recorded: Sep 19 2018 46 mins
    Targeted attacks are now an established part of the threat landscape and in 2017 the headlines were full of news about sophisticated attacks of all kinds. Some were highly-targeted, others affected many businesses and quickly reached epidemic proportions. Often the motive was clear - to gather data, to make money, to cause damage and disruption. But sometimes the lines between these became blurred.

    It's clear that organisations of all kinds need to understand and prepare for cyber-threats affecting their sector. And this must start with an understanding of the current threat landscape and how it's likely to develop.

    This presentation will outline the trends we're seeing and offer some predictions for 2018 and beyond - based on our analysis of attacks in 2017.

  • Legacy Modernisation: Overcoming the Transformation Barriers
    Legacy Modernisation: Overcoming the Transformation Barriers Simon Ratcliffe, Principal Consultant, Ensono, Kevin Stoodley, CTO, IBM Z Series, & Alex Hilton, CEO, CIF Recorded: Jun 27 2018 58 mins
    A recent survey conducted by Ensono, in partnership with the Cloud Industry Forum, showed that 89% of respondents believed that legacy technology was a barrier to effective digital transformation. Given that many organisations operate a complex technology landscape often with elements in different locations, and with core components that are regarded as ‘legacy but critical’, there needs to be a clear and simple approach to overcoming these obstacles.

    Breaking down the barriers requires effective change in people, process and technology to attain a viable level velocity that will enable transformation without being held back by perceptions of legacy issues.

    Examining these issues, this webinar will provide insight and thought provoking approaches for organisations seeking to transform their operations against this backdrop.

  • Are EMEA organizations behind the curve, developing their Cloud Backup Strategy?
    Are EMEA organizations behind the curve, developing their Cloud Backup Strategy? Phil Maynard, Sr. Director, Technical Sales EMEA; Alex Hilton, CEO, Cloud Industry Forum Recorded: Dec 8 2017 45 mins
    Many organizations within EMEA are beginning to host more of their business-critical applications and data in the Cloud. However, many of these organizations are not fully aware of the risks, so are not fully protecting their Cloud-based applications or data. In addition, the majority of organizations still rely on traditional on-prem focussed Backup solutions, many of which do not enable the cloud to be used efficiently, or cost effectively.

    Join Phil Maynard, Sr. Director EMEA, Technical Sales at Barracuda and Alex Hilton, CEO at Cloud Industry Forum to discuss:

    - Findings from Barracuda research on how companies are using Backup and Cloud in EMEA
    - What’s preventing companies from moving their backups to the Cloud
    - Why moving to Office 365 could break your data protection and IT security strategy
    - Real life examples of how organisations have adopted a hybrid on-prem and Cloud Backup Strategy

  • The rise of multi-cloud - what to expect and how to prepare
    The rise of multi-cloud - what to expect and how to prepare Antonio Piraino, Chief Technical Officer, ScienceLogic Recorded: Oct 18 2017 62 mins
    With HyperScale Clouds reaching their eleventh year of operation, The Cloud is no longer a semi-autonomous shadow-IT playground, but rather the critical component of any Enterprise Transformation strategy. The fear of cloud failure is no longer the deterrent it once was, and modern strategies dictate a multi-cloud architecture allowing for optimized value and simultaneous risk mitigation. This webinar discusses why there is now widespread adoption of a multi-cloud strategy, and how it helps to achieve several business objectives; namely: optimized ROI, superior security, lower latency and higher throughput, greater autonomy, greater availability and resource optimization. Antonio will also dig into the most current emerging trends of the multi-cloud, including immutable infrastructure and the concurrent tools transformation accompanying this paradigm shift.
