Unlike hacktivists and cyberterrorists, who are motivated by promoting a cause or punishing an organization for some perceived wrong doing, cyber gangs’ motivations are more old-fashioned — money. While hacktivists and cyberterrorists use sophisticated, targeted attacks, cyber gangs target the path of least resistance and look for widespread vulnerabilities so they can breach more enterprises with less effort.
Listen to the Get Inside the Minds of Cyber Gangs webinar to find out:
-Why cyber gangs are so successful despite their unsophisticated methods
-What enterprises can do to protect themselves from these damaging cyber gangs

For many organizations MS-SQL is the backend to many of their mission critical applications. The environment provides a cost effective foundation for an organization to develop custom designed solutions that drive the business forward. As MS-SQL has risen in importance, the demands on the storage infrastructure have also increased. MS-SQL needs a high performance, well-protected storage system that is also cost effective. To meet these requirements many organizations are now looking at flash storage.
Join experts from Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems as we discuss the various options that storage and MS-SQL administrators have as they begin to look for new ways to meet the MS-SQL challenge.
Data breaches of all sorts, affecting credit card providers, retailers and health care providers, suggest that such breaches will continue and grow as a major risk to all organizations and their IT, security, and compliance departments. At the same time, Big Data solutions are gradually becoming more prevalent, connecting many new sources of data and thus potentially increasing both the vulnerability and the magnitude of a data breach. It is no wonder that Stratecast survey data suggest that one of IT managers’ primary concerns with Big Data is security, yet the advantages of Big Data in enabling revenue creation make it very attractive to the business. This panel discussion will explore the security issues around Big Data.
In particular, the panel will discuss:
•Whether Big Data necessarily increases the risk of a security breach
•How to assess the risks associated with different types of Big Data solutions
•How to avoid data breaches in a Big Data environment

Higher-order features such as lambdas exist ubiquitously in web applications and frameworks. They make development easier, but at a cost of added complexity and exposure to high risk vulns and attacks. However, statically ruling out such vulnerabilities is theoretical and practically challenging, especially when high-order functions and complex control-flow collide with opaque, dynamic data structures such as objects.
This talk aims to provide an easy-to-understand explanation of higher-order function and the difficulties involved in assessing it. We’ll include a brief report on the how HP Fortify Static Code Analyzer handles higher-order analysis and our plans for future improvements. Note: Content focused on a technical-level viewer.

For disaster recovery (DR), you’ve outsourced or virtualized your network, infrastructure, applications and telephony system. Your data is stored in multiple, secure locations, and you’re safe from hurricanes, tornados and blackouts. But what about a pumpkin-spiced latte?
The desktop is the most overlooked and vulnerable link in your disaster recovery plan. Whether a device is disabled from a coffee spill, a hardware failure, theft or vicious malware, the result is the same: your employee loses access to her desktop, primary lines of communication, and user data. Productivity comes to a grinding halt. One computer, with one access, can snowball into a local or a global problem. You’re only one desktop away from disaster.
There is a solution: virtualize the desktop. Join Michael McCracken, Director, Professional Services at Hosting, and Steve Prather, CEO of Dizzion, on May 14th, 2015 at [time] for a revealing look at how top planners are now integrating Desktop as a Service (DaaS). This 45-minute webcast is ideal for IT leaders, business risk and compliance professionals, and disaster recovery / business continuity planners.
Attendees will learn:
• The basics of Disaster Recovery and accessibility of your data
• How to extend your DR strategy all the way to the desktop
• DaaS deployment best practices
From their first cup of coffee, to meetings in the field and late night conference calls—today’s workers expect a seamless continuum of access to enterprise resources. And while remote network access, virtual desktops and cloud applications are invaluable assets for these employees, the increasingly splintered data ecosystem is wreaking havoc among the unprepared—be they IT, security or compliance professionals. So how can IT administrators service 100s, 1000s or even 10,000s of users while keeping management overhead low? Can security staff support mobility and remain unruffled in the face of a data breach? And exactly how can compliance stewards ensure they have the visibility they need to smoothly undergo audits? This webinar will provide the answers.

One of the most unique and critical feature of Cloud is it’s “Elasticity”. The very nature of SaaS applications being delivered over cloud (internet) enforces a natural requirement for these applications to be elastic as well in order to leverage the cloud benefits. However, one of the common myths in SaaS is Cloud will take care of scalability and application need not worry about it. Many SaaS providers realize this when their applications are put for a true scalability test – which can span across all the layers of your application. While the cloud facilitates elasticity the application should have been architected to make use of it. In this webinar we are going focus on the best practices involved in building a true scalable SaaS application.
• Scalability considerations in a layered architecture
• Scalability design patterns
• Techniques for database scalability
• Balancing cost vs. scalability in AWS cloud
• Key services in AWS for SaaS applications to leverage scalability
Moving existing applications to a public cloud can produce a variety of benefits for business and IT, including speed, flexibility, focus, agility, scale, geographic reach, and cost savings.
