  • Achieving Consensus and Prioritising Your Steps to GDPR Compliance
    Achieving Consensus and Prioritising Your Steps to GDPR Compliance Andy Tomkins & Nigel Tozer, Commvault Recorded: Mar 15 2018 60 mins
    Taking a workshop approach: GDPR compliance has been described in many ways, but often as confusing, difficult and even impossible. A recent Commvault survey revealed that only 21% of organisations said they felt they have a good understanding of what it means in practice, with only 17% saying they fully understood the impact on the overall business. For many then, it’s safe to say that it needs demystifying.

    This session will show the benefits of running a workshop geared towards a greater understanding of the impact of GDPR on your organisation. By profiling the responses from key stakeholders in your security, legal, risk and IT teams, you can throw a spotlight on:
    •Where you really are with regard to GDPR
    •Areas of risk specific to your organisation
    •What the most pressing gaps are, so you can develop a plan
    Above all, for GDPR working groups struggling to set priorities or achieve consensus, this workshop approach will help you construct a path, unique to your organisation and tailored to your specific needs.

  • Closing the Window on Fraud and Financial Crime
    Closing the Window on Fraud and Financial Crime Keith Lowry, SVP & Peter Evans, Sr. Information Security Consultant, Nuix Recorded: Mar 14 2018 42 mins
    Everyone’s been compromised. Financial services companies should just assume that’s the case. Yet, many companies still don’t have effective programs or inter-departmental policies and procedures in place. They measure the time it takes to identify a breach in months, sometimes years, and fraudulent transactions often go uncaught.

    However, there is hope. We will examine three distinct cases of financial fraud and, using investigations, eDiscovery, and cybersecurity tools in new ways, demonstrate how you can minimize your risk and limit the damage done to your organization.

    Attendees to this webinar will learn:

    • The differences, and similarities, between three distinct types of financial fraud using real-world examples
    • The business challenges that arise from not detecting or reacting to fraud and security incidents
    • How inter-departmental boundaries prohibit effective response
    • How to expand their use of traditional forensic, eDiscovery, and cybersecurity tools to shorten the time criminals have to operate.


    Keith has more than 25 years of experience implementing, managing, and directing insider threat, counterintelligence, and intelligence collection programs. He is a former law enforcement officer and High-Technology Crime Unit detective with the City of San Jose California and a United States Navy Mobilized Reservist. He also served as Chief of Staff to the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Human intelligence, Counterintelligence and Security at the Pentagon.

    Peter is a Senior Information Security Consultant at Nuix. He has more than ten years’ experience in federal law enforcement and another ten years’ experience as an Information technologies and radio frequency engineer. While working in law enforcement, Peter was detailed to the Electronic Crimes Task Force and was the lead forensic investigator on many computer crimes, network intrusions, and wireless exploitation cases.

  • Cómo Scale-Out resuelve los dolores de cabeza del almacenamiento secundario
    Cómo Scale-Out resuelve los dolores de cabeza del almacenamiento secundario Ivan Abad - Director Técnico Iberia Mar 21 2018 8:30 am UTC 45 mins
    Muchos departamentos de TI no se dan cuenta de que más del 70% de sus datos vive en almacenamiento secundario. Pero conocen de primera mano los dolores de cabeza asociados con el enfoque scale-up para lidiar con el crecimiento de ese almacenamiento y la necesidad de migrar a sistemas cada vez más grandes a medida que se expanden los datos.

    La alternativa es una arquitectura scale-out que le permite simplemente expandir la capacidad a medida que la necesita. Además de resolver el problema de escalabilidad, este enfoque es más barato, más fiable y ofrece un coste de rendimiento predecible.

    Gartner dice que el 30%1 de los datos ya se ha movido a una infraestructura scale-out, principalmente para almacenamiento primario. Su éxito ahora está impulsando el interés en aplicar los mismos principios al almacenamiento secundario.

    En este webinar examinaremos cómo la infraestructura Scale-Out:
    •Simplifica la gestión del almacenamiento
    •Reduce los costes de infraestructura
    •Mejora la fiabilidad y disponibilidad
    •Dirige el rendimiento
    •Expande el almacenamiento sin fisuras

    The emerging role of libraries in research information management Anna Clements, University of St Andrews, Jennifer White, University of St Andrews & Rebecca Bryant, OCLC Research Mar 21 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Pure, as one of the leading CRIS (or research information management RIM) systems, has facilitated the emergence of exciting opportunities for research organisations to transform their support for researchers, with many research libraries taking an increasingly important role. Broadly defined, RIM is the aggregation, curation, and utilization of information about institutional research activities, and as such, intersects with many aspects of traditional library services in discovery, acquisition, dissemination, and analysis of scholarly activities.

    OCLC Research has been working with members of its international OCLC Research Library Partnership, including the University of St Andrews in Scotland, on a publication to help libraries and other institutional stakeholders to understand developing RIM practices and, in particular, their relevance for service and staff development purposes.

    In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the OCLC position paper and provide a case study from the University of St Andrews.

  • Data Architecture - from Requirements to implementation with SAP PowerDesigner
    Data Architecture - from Requirements to implementation with SAP PowerDesigner George McGeachie Mar 22 2018 12:15 pm UTC 45 mins
    To be successful at Data Architecture, organisations have always needed to understand what data they have, why they have it, how they use it, where it is, how it got there, and what happened to it along the way - forming a 'pipeline' of information. Very often, this pipeline is managed and documented using a mish-mash of tools and methodologies, often resulting in conflicting and contradictory information, making it difficult for Data Governance to be effective.
    In this webcast, George McGeachie will demonstrate the key features of SAP PowerDesigner that support the pipeline. A set of requirements and business rules, and an existing Conceptual Data Model, will be used to create Logical and Physical Data Models. This will include the generation of JSON structures from both Logical and Physical Data Models.
    Some of what you will see is not out-of-the-box - it has been built using PowerDesigner's powerful customisation features.

  • Building a multi-purpose Data Lake for Increased Business Agility.
    Building a multi-purpose Data Lake for Increased Business Agility. Pablo Alvarez, Director of Product Management at Denodo. Mar 27 2018 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    The data contained in the data lake is too valuable to restrict its use to just data scientists. It would make the investment in a data lake more worthwhile if the target audience can be enlarged without hindering the original users. However, this is not the case today, most data lakes are single-purpose. Also, the physical nature of data lakes have potential disadvantages and limitations weakening the benefits and possibly even killing a data lake project entirely.

    A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and greater use of the data lake investment without minimizing the potential value for data science or for making it a less flexible environment. Multi-purpose data lakes are data delivery environments architected to support a broad range of users, from traditional self-service BI users to sophisticated data scientists.

    Attend this session to learn:

    * The challenges of a physical data lake
    * How to create an architecture that makes a physical data lake more flexible
    * How to drive the adoption of the data lake by a larger audience

  • How to Solve Backup Appliance Sprawl
    How to Solve Backup Appliance Sprawl Vanessa Wilson, CEO, StorReduce; Victor Nemechek, Senior Solutions Marketing Manager, Western Digital Mar 27 2018 2:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Your first backup appliance was great, but how did you feel about your fifth? As data sets explode into the realm of petabytes, most backup appliances can’t scale to meet the capacity needs of a digital company. The lack of scalability forces companies to buy multiple backup appliances, creating the ‘backup appliance sprawl’. The more backup systems companies have to manage, the more time it takes to balance, monitor and maintain.

    Join members of Western Digital and StorReduce to learn about a scale-out deduplication software that enables primary backups to be stored directly on object storage based private or hybrid cloud, eliminating backup appliance sprawl. In this webinar you’ll learn how this technology allows you to:

    •Save up to 70% or more for backup environment TCO while retaining your existing backup applications
    •Reduce hardware refresh cycle for backup appliances
    •Scale as you need without migrations or rip-n-replace hardware changes
    •Build a “Data Forever” environment with extreme data durability

    Just because Easter is around the corner doesn’t mean your backup appliances should be multiplying like rabbits. Register today!

    Is the Traditional Data Warehouse Dead? James Serra, Data Platform Solution Architect, Microsoft Mar 27 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    With new technologies such as Hive LLAP or Spark SQL, do you still need a data warehouse or can you just put everything in a data lake and report off of that? No! In the presentation, James will discuss why you still need a relational data warehouse and how to use a data lake and an RDBMS data warehouse to get the best of both worlds.

    James will go into detail on the characteristics of a data lake and its benefits and why you still need data governance tasks in a data lake. He'll also discuss using Hadoop as the data lake, data virtualization, and the need for OLAP in a big data solution, and he will put it all together by showing common big data architectures.
