In today's world of unprecedented growth in enterprise storage demands, traditional infrastructure provisioning and management methods just aren’t capable of keeping up with the frequent adjustments required within modern enterprises.

Please join us for an upcoming webcast on May 19th, featuring guest speaker Sr. Research Analyst Henry Baltazar with Forrester Consulting who will share insights on the growing need to rethink traditional data storage and on where the data industry is heading. Eric Carter, Sr. Director of Product Marketing at Hedvig will share how Hedvig’s new software-defined storage solution can deliver modern storage for any enterprise compute environment.
Attend this webcast featuring industry experts from Forrester Research and Hedvig to discover:
•Why 55% of technology decision makers are expressing interest in or starting to implement software-defined storage
•What workloads IT leaders consider as top candidates to operate with software-defined storage
•Why the need for choice and flexibility are ushering in a new era of data management that brings the simplicity of public clouds to your data center

The velocity of change for today's business has exposed weakness in traditional approaches to IT infrastructure. Forrester estimates that 58% of organizations measure storage provisioning in days, weeks, or even months. That’s simply not fast enough!

Learn how data encryption and encryption key management address compliance for healthcare providers and payers. Join Derek Tumulak, VP Product Management at Vormetric, and Tricia Pattee, HOSTING Product Manager as they discuss how HIPAA/HITECH regulations impact electronic protected health information (PHI) and best practices to safeguard sensitive patient data.
• HIPAA and HITECH regulatory mandates impact data security for healthcare institutions
• Strong encryption and policy-based access controls provide a separation of duties between data security and system administrators
• Secure key management and policy management ensure consistency in applying policies and encryption keys to both structured and unstructured data
• Rapid implementation is achieved because encryption is transparent to users, applications, databases and storage systems
• The HOSTING and Vormetric cloud solution can satisfy HIPAA and HITECH compliance requirements in the cloud
In this presentation, solution providers learn simple steps to help build and grow their IT security practice. Attendees learn about compliance regulations, cloud integration, how to weave security into each opportunity, adherence to best practices, and re-educating customers.
Migrating your Hadoop cluster between versions or distributions is difficult. It is a critical process that if done incorrectly can lead to the loss of data, system downtime, and disruption of business activities.
In this webinar, learn how you can mitigate the risk in a migration through the development of a comprehensive migration strategy and leveraging tools like those from WANdisco to simplify and automate your migration.
For years, most endpoint security strategies have revolved around endpoint anti-virus, but this approach is clearly unable to keep pace with modern threats. To mitigate their risks, IT organizations need to rethink their current endpoint security strategies and move past these reactive security technologies. In order to set organizations down the right path, we will present Forrester’s five design principles of an effective endpoint security strategy, helping security professionals to place attack surface reduction and tool integration as their central focus points within their own strategies. Ultimately, this will allow organizations to better deal with the influx of new device types and data access requirements while reducing the likelihood of data breaches.

Internal auditors play a vital role in their organization’s strategies and daily activities. Your department’s audit plan should be a well-balanced examination that covers regulatory requirements and aligns key risk areas within the organization. However, in today’s fast changing environment, plans change and the needs of the organization may evolve rapidly. Has your support of the organization kept pace with those changes? Should you make changes to your audit plan to ensure coverage of new risks? Also, do you know what new elements should be included in your 2014 plan?

Internal Auditors are often the first line of defense in a company’s fight against fraud and corruption. Indeed, Internal Auditors are often called upon to “pivot” when a routine internal audit unearths red flags that may be indicators of fraud, corruption or misconduct.
This presentation is intended to provide internal auditors with:
•Knowledge of investigative techniques
•The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
•Tools to respond to red flags

Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.
