  • Protocol Analysis for High-Speed Fibre Channel Fabrics
    Protocol Analysis for High-Speed Fibre Channel Fabrics David Rodgers, Teledyne LeCroy; Yamini Shastry, Viavi Solutions; Joe Kimpler, ATTO Recorded: Oct 10 2018 62 mins
    Protocol Analysis for High-Speed Fibre Channel Fabrics in the Data Center: Aka, Saving Your SAN (& Sanity)

    The driving force behind adopting new tools and processes in test and measurement practices is the desire to understand, predict, and mitigate the impact of Sick but not Dead (SBND) conditions in datacenter fabrics. The growth and centralization of mission critical datacenter SAN environments has exposed the fact that many small yet seemingly insignificant problems have the potential of becoming large scale and impactful events, unless properly contained or controlled.

    Root cause analysis requirements now encompass all layers of the fabric architecture, and new storage protocols that usurp the traditional network stack (i.e. FCoE, iWARP, NVMe over Fabrics, etc.) for purposes of expedited data delivery place additional analytical demands on the datacenter manager.
    To be sure, all tools have limitations in their effectiveness and areas of coverage, so a well-constructed “collage” of best practices and effective and efficient analysis tools must be developed. To that end, recognizing and reducing the effect of those limitations is essential.

    This webinar will introduce participants to Protocol Analysis tools and how they may be incorporated into the “best practices” application of SAN problem solving. We will review:
    •The protocol of the Phy
    •Use of “in-line” capture tools
    •Benefits of purposeful error injection for developing and supporting today’s high-speed Fibre Channel storage fabrics

    Join us on October 10, 2018. FCIA experts will be on hand to answer your questions.

  • 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.

    About the presenter:
    David joined Kaspersky Lab in 2004. He is a member of the company's Global Research and Analysis Team and has worked in the anti-malware industry since 1990 in a variety of roles, including that of Senior Technology Consultant at Dr Solomon's Software, and Systems Engineer and Product Manager at McAfee.
