    Total Performance Management (TPM) for Hadoop and Spark Alex Pierce Recorded: Apr 25 2018 23 mins
    Pepperdata makes Hadoop+YARN based systems better by providing total performance management (TPM) for big data. Total performance management is the combination of application performance management (APM) and operations performance management (OPM) in a single package so developers and operators can rely on the same underlying information to build and operate highly performant big data applications in multi-tenant clusters.

    For developers, the Application Spotlight self-service APM portal surfaces applications that need attention from a performance perspective. For these applications, Application Spotlight provides precise recommendations to improve performance, automatically identifies bottlenecks and makes it easy to analyze root cause of errors and failures.

    For operators, the Cluster Analyzer OPM solution makes it easy to identify applications and users causing issues on the platform, proactively alert on those issues, and improve cluster performance. We also have roll up reports for things like chargeback and capacity planning. The Capacity Optimizer add-on module automatically increases cluster throughput 30-50% by addressing some of the inefficiencies of how YARN does resource management today.

    Join us for this webinar presented by Alex Pierce and learn how we can bring performance management to your applications and your cluster.

  • Reducing Breach Costs with Early Detection and Rapid Response
    Reducing Breach Costs with Early Detection and Rapid Response Harlan Carvey Director of Intelligence Integration, at Nuix Recorded: Apr 25 2018 28 mins
    It takes minutes to get inside. Days to exfiltrate. Detection can take weeks, maybe months. The impact is huge: lost revenue, increased costs, and damage to your organization’s brand.

    You can’t completely stop breaches from happening, but you can remediate the direct and indirect costs they can have on your organization. By taking a proactive stance, you can properly plan and budget for the costs associated with a breach. Through early detection and rapid response, you can obviate the need to notify affected customers and reduce the costs associated with notification.

    This webinar will cover:
    • How a “data breach” is defined, legislated, and how they occur
    • Direct and indirect costs facing organizations that are breached
    • Differences between “left of breach” (proactive approach) and “right of breach” (reactive approach) by exploring real-world examples
    • How early detection and rapid response can drive down the cost of a breach.

  • Security and Privacy: How to grow the relationship
    Security and Privacy: How to grow the relationship Rob Anderson, Privitar; Becky Pinkard, Digital Shadows & Jonathan Hayes, Dinube Recorded: Apr 25 2018 58 mins
    The words privacy and security are often used interchangeably - as both seek to protect information - but they are unique and complimentary disciplines, which each need respective levels of focus. This session will look to define the relationship between the two and how they need to align and work hand in hand.

    Security protects data against unauthorised access; privacy protects sensitive data in use within an organisation. Security is quite mature; privacy is an emerging discipline. Security is a technical field that has grown over several decades. Recognised security standards exist, and are maintained by an active community, with vetted security protocols in use everywhere. This is not yet the case for privacy. But if the Facebook / Cambridge Analytica story has taught us anything, it's that you definitely do need both.

    Maturity: What can Privacy learn from the maturity journey of enterprise Security?

    Emerging roles: Whose job is Privacy and Security respectively? What job titles are emerging and what do their job descriptions look like?

    Is there such a thing as a privacy culture?

    Ethics: Would it be advisable for data scientists to have a code of ethics? should they do ethics training?

    Transparency: consumers are concerned about the way businesses are using their data. But do they care about the distinction between privacy and security?

    The catch? BOPIS isn’t easy. The service requires pinpoint precision with inventory tracking, a new set of skills for store associates and a commitment to managing the kind of fraud threats that have historically been the responsibility of the online team.

    In this webinar, we’ll explore the reasons BOPIS represents the future of retail and we’ll outline the perils and potential profits the channel presents.

  • 7 Strategies for Effective Vulnerability Remediation
    7 Strategies for Effective Vulnerability Remediation Syed Abdur, Brinqa, Director of Product and James Walta, Brinqa, Sales Engineer Apr 26 2018 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The remediation gap is real.

    You have completed your network and application scans to identify the vulnerabilities in your technology infrastructure. Now begins the long journey from a vulnerability being identified and reported, to appropriate actions being taken to address the problem. This ‘Remediation Gap’ is the window of opportunity for attackers to exploit a weakness. According to research, vulnerabilities typically spend hundreds of days in this limbo, leaving organizations exposed to attacks. Fortunately, there are concrete steps that you can take to combat this problem.

    Join us for this webinar as we discuss 7 practical strategies designed to reduce the remediation gap while improving effectiveness, efficiency, and consistency, including how to

    Ensure that remediation efforts prioritize the most critical problems

    Improve remediation coverage while reducing overhead

    Leverage existing ITSM systems and processes

    Automate significant parts of the process

    Chris Wylie: Inside the Facebook & Cambridge Analytica story Chris Wylie, Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower & Harry Davies, Writer & Journalist, The Guardian May 2 2018 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Few names are more central and more important to the Facebook / Cambridge Analytica privacy story than Chris Wylie.

    Over the last 5 years, Chris's path as a data scientist lead him from his native Canada, to the head of research at SCL Ltd - a contractor developing military ‘information operations’ for the US and UK - to the top of a (then) little-known company named Cambridge Analytica.

    It was at Cambridge Analytica that he met Steve Bannon and began helping to pioneer their 'propoganda machine' designed to use social media to propel Donald Trump to the presidency in the 2016 election. To train the machine, they first concentrated it on the Brexit vote.

    This year, Chris came forward as the key whistleblower in the case and we were delighted to host him speaking on stage at In:Confidence 2018.

    Chris was joined for the extended interview by leading data privacy journalist and former Guardian and Observer Researcher Harry Davies, renowned for breaking the original story back in 2015. The pair took a deep-dive into the news storm that brought data privacy roaring onto the front pages, and became a pivotal moment in the public’s digital consciousness.

    Exclusive to BrightTALK, this session features Chris Wylie the man at the centre of the Facebook / Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal giving the inside view; how we got to where we are now and suggesting what the industry can do moving forwards to prevent another damaging privacy breach.

  • Replace Your Datamart with a Scalable, Cost Effective, Performant Solution
    Replace Your Datamart with a Scalable, Cost Effective, Performant Solution Josh Klahr, VP of Product at AtScale May 2 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    To deliver timely and actionable information to business users, organizations have turned to building data marts and using purpose-built appliances (like Netezza and Vertica). These options require time consuming, antiquated processes that impair the agility of many organizations. Some of these appliances are facing end of life, so enterprises must choose their next, better step.

    To modernize and simplify their data intelligence strategy, enterprises must:

    - Build a modern architecture for both data science and business use
    - Architect the data like so that business users can query the data using the BI tools they already know
    - Avoid data movement, a data mart, or data appliance
    - Deliver the speed business users have learned to expect from purpose built appliances

    In this webinar, we will showcase:

    - How a company can use a data lake built on Cloudera to modernize their data architecture to deliver flexibility and agility to both data scientists and business users
    - How using AtScale’s Universal Semantic layer can end the data chaos and allow business users to use the data in the data lake
    - Highlight the performance benchmark of AtScale and Impala using the newly completed benchmark using the TPC-DS standard
