  • 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?

    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

    Single Source of Truth in the Enterprise: From Mirage to Reality Praveen Kankariya, CEO - Impetus Technologies, Inc. and Ajay Anand, VP Products & Marketing - Kyvos Insights, Inc. May 3 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Complex and fragmented data systems make it challenging to define a 'single source of truth' for data that provides a comprehensive single view of the enterprise. Enterprises are pushing for higher levels of data integrity that can drive business insights quickly and easily up and down and across the enterprise.

    Is it possible to achieve a single source of truth across the enterprise? Or is it just an expensive myth? Is the path easy? Or is it a never-ending journey?

  • Integrating the Enterprise with a Streaming Data Approach
    Integrating the Enterprise with a Streaming Data Approach William McKnight, Analyst, Gigaom Research & Jon Bock, VP of Marketing, Streamlio May 8 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Streaming and real-time data has high business value, but that value can rapidly decay if not processed quickly. If the value of the data is not realized in a certain window of time, its value is lost and the decision or action that was needed as a result never occurs. Streaming data – whether from sensors, devices, applications, or events – needs special attention because a sudden price change, a critical threshold met, a sensor reading changing rapidly, or a blip in a log file can all be of immense value, but only if the alert is in time.

    In this webinar, we will review the landscape of streaming data and message queueing technology and introduce and demonstrate a method for an organization to assess and benchmark—for their own current and future uses and workloads—the technologies currently available. We will also reveal the results of our own execution of the OpenMessaging benchmark on workloads for two of the platforms: Apache Kafka and Apache Pulsar.

    What Will Be Discussed:

    •The Evolution of Queuing, Messaging, and Streaming
    •Today’s Technology Landscape
    •Assessing Performance: The OpenMessaging Benchmark
    •Considerations for Your Evaluation
  • Predicting Failures Before They Happen With Machine Learning

  • Data Preparation Done Right
    Data Preparation Done Right Davinder Mundy, Specialist Big Data Technologies, Informatica May 9 2018 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    How do you avoid your enterprise data lake turning into a so-called data swamp? The explosion of structured, unstructured and streaming data can be overwhelming for data lake users, and make it unmanageable for IT. Without scalable, repeatable, and intelligent mechanisms for cataloguing and curating data, the advantages of data lakes diminish. The key to solving the problem of data swamps is Informatica’s metadata driven approach which leverages intelligent methods to automatically discover, profile and infer relationships about data assets. Enabling business analysts and citizen integrators to quickly find, understand and prepare the data they are looking for.
  • Is Your Data Lake GDPR Ready? How to Avoid Drowning in Data Requests
    Is Your Data Lake GDPR Ready? How to Avoid Drowning in Data Requests Arsalan Tavakoli-Shiraji, VP of Solutions; Justin Olsson, Senior Legal Counsel and Michael Armbrust, Software Engineer May 9 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    With GDPR enforcement rapidly approaching on May 25, many companies are still trying to figure out how to comply with one of the regulation’s biggest pain points - data subject requests (DSRs). Under GDPR, data subjects (individuals) in the EU have the right to request information on what personal data is collected, how it is being used, and to have that data changed or erased.

    For many organizations that rely on data lakes to store their big data, sifting through millions of files to locate and modify records for a DSR is at minimum a massive effort. And trying to do this within prescribed timelines is near impossible.

    Fortunately there’s a path forward. Through an optimized approach to data management, Databricks powered by Apache Spark™ makes it easy to quickly find, edit and erase data submerged deep within your data lake without disrupting your data pipelines.

    Join this webinar to learn:
    • The GDPR requirements of data subject requests
    • The challenges big data and data lakes create for organizations
    • How Databricks Delta, a powerful new offering within the Databricks Unified Analytics Platform improves data lake management and makes it possible to quickly find and surgically remove or modify individual records
    • Best practices for GDPR data governance
    • Live demo on how to easily fulfill data requests with Databricks

  • 2018 Verizon DBIR and Federal Agencies: A Cyber Security Panel Discussion
    2018 Verizon DBIR and Federal Agencies: A Cyber Security Panel Discussion Craig Bowman, Vice President - Advanced Solutions, Verizon May 10 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), now in its eleventh year, is an industry benchmark for information on cybersecurity threats. This year we looked at over 53K security incidents and 2,216 confirmed breaches. But what does it really mean for federal agencies? Join our panel of federal cyber security experts for a look at some of the key findings of the 2018 report:
    • Cybercrime can come in any shape or size, and not always in the form you’d expect.
    • State affiliated actors are prevalent threat actors against the public sector.
    • The average time gap between the first click on a phishing campaign and the first report to security? Longer than you think.
    • Ransomware was the top variety of malicious software in 2017.
    • The overwhelming majority of incidents fell into one of nine attack patterns — knowing these can help you mitigate the risks of a breach.

    Our panel:
    • Chris Gagne- United States Secret Service, Criminal Investigative Division, Cyber Forensics and Technology Unit
    • Jeff Wagner- Associate Chief information Officer, U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM)

  • Dead-end dashboards and how to avoid them
    Dead-end dashboards and how to avoid them Andy Cotgreave, Technical Evangelism Director, Tableau May 10 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Dashboards are a vital part of any business intelligence (BI) strategy. But there's an unspoken truth: dashboards are always incomplete and out of date. You have new business decisions to make every single day. Do your dashboards change that fast? No. Fortunately, a good BI strategy can also encourage iteration, curiosity, and flexibility. Learn how to adopt those cultural changes in order to evolve your BI investments beyond dead-end dashboards and towards data-driven decisions.
