Wi-Fi Optimization: Every Day, Another 4 Million Devices Are Activated. Ready?Perry Correll, Senior Technologist, XirrusThe mobile enterprise challenges are mounting: enabling users simple and secure access to the network, ensuring applications run smoothly, and building sufficient capacity to handle unpredictable usage and future growth. A superior level of Wi-Fi design is now required—something shown lacking by a recent Gartner report: “By 2015, 80% of newly installed wireless networks will be obsolete because of a lack of proper planning.” A clear indication of the problem is that a typical wireless user is provisioned with less than 5% of the bandwidth of a typical wired user. Wi-Fi Optimization includes designing for: the user, device, application, spectrum and capacity. This session will examine critical design components to ensure predictable performance, even under heavy loads.Read more >

How do you respond when your organisation has been breached and law enforcement is unable to help?
More and more companies are turning from a reactive response to breaches to a proactive one: preventing a breach before it happens and hacking back. This panel session will feature 4 experts discuss these topics in-depth, from its technical to legal implications.
As companies migrate to the virtual datacenter, executives must deal with security, audit, and visibility of their environment which has grown beyond their physical datacenter. Because of this, hesitancy remains and many questions are still being asked. What is a next-gen datacenter? What changes as businesses take steps toward a hybrid datacenter? When they move to a virtualized environment, how does their data remain secured and in their control? Will encrypting data in this environment achieve visibility and control of who is accessing it? Plus despite more knowledge on virtual risks, cloud services are still being purchased without authentication, adopting cloud first and then thinking about security second. So how can organisations win the struggle with authentication in the cloud?
Join your fellow professionals for this lively and insightful discussion providing a complete vision on virtual risks in a virtual world. Then understand a way to manage risk, maintain compliance, accelerate and protect business from evolving security threats.
Social business represents a new transformational opportunity for organizations. After initial forays into external social media, many companies are now discovering the value of applying social approaches, internally as well as externally. Social business can create valued customer experiences, increase workforce productivity and effectiveness and accelerate innovation. But many companies still wrestle with the organisational and cultural challenges posed by these new ways of work.
Join this webinar to hear the proven results from easily integrating social into your everyday tools to improve your business.

Public cloud providers offer better uptime and business continuity than most organisations can achieve on their own, despite well-publicised outages. But failing to plan for an outage, means you are planning to fail. At the center of this argument is the concept of designing for resilience: organisations should not hide from failure, but rather expose themselves to it early and often, in a way that allows them to learn quickly and build the right infrastructure to build reliability in an unreliable world.
Join Paul Wallace, Director of Product at Riverbed Technology, as he discusses strategies that will help you design for resilience and security, and learn how to:
* Prepare for unplanned cloud outages
* Build a globally resilient cloud application
* Avoid some of the most common mistakes when faced with a cloud outage
Cyber-risk is one of today’s most high profile business risks. While good cyber-mitigation strategies can reduce this risk, it cannot be eliminated – defences will be breached. The organisation’s ability to respond to and recover from these breaches – its cyber-resilience – is fundamental to its risk management strategy. This session examines cyber risk, the pervasiveness of cyber-incidents and the key steps in building a cyber-resilience strategy.

The premise behind this talk is to challenge both the technical controls we recommend to developers and also our actual approach to testing.
We continue to rely on a “pentest” to secure our applications. Why do we think it is acceptable to perform a time-limited test of an application to help ensure security when a determined attacker may spend 10-100 times longer attempting to find a suitable vulnerability? How can we expect developers to listen to security consultants when the consultant has never written a line of code? Why are we still happy with “Testing security out” rather than the more superior “building security in”?
This talk is sure to challenge the status quo of web security today.
