  • Privileged accounts: the most powerful backdoor used by hackers
    Privileged accounts: the most powerful backdoor used by hackers Grant Burst and Chad Carter Recorded: Apr 27 2017 47 mins
    Privileged accounts can be some of the most serious threats your company can face. As more and more processes are digitalized and activities externalized, the number of accounts accessing critical and strategic information escalates, extending the cyber threat across continents. Meanwhile, companies and individuals are becoming increasingly aware that any data or server can be accessed with the right privileges; it is therefore imperative to know who accesses critical resources, as well as when and why they do so to avoid any leak. By monitoring the users holding the keys to the kingdom - the privileged users, we are able to know what exactly happened on a system at any given time and how. Whether malicious or negligent, incidents caused by internal or external threats can be avoided quickly if visibility over the IS is restored. Session monitoring and recording dissuades malicious or negligent users while offering real-time alerts, traceability, and post-mortem analysis. Discover how some of the most dramatic cyberattacks to date could have been prevented had there been a Privileged Access Management solution in place to protect and secure target systems.

  • How Scale-Out Storage Enables the Next Frontier of Life Sciences Breakthroughs
    How Scale-Out Storage Enables the Next Frontier of Life Sciences Breakthroughs Joel Groen & Dave Kaminsky Recorded: Apr 26 2017 17 mins
    Workflows in life sciences and bioinformatics are characterized by massive volumes of machine-generated file data that is pipelined into downstream processes for analysis. With today’s sequencer technology, most experts agree that about 100 GB of data is generated for each human genome that is sequenced.

    With the Earth’s population predicted to eclipse 8 billion people by 2025, some researchers believe that Life Sciences and Genomics in particular will soon become the single largest producer of new data across all media types — outpacing today’s leaders like YouTube, Twitter, and astronomical research.

    Legacy file storage fails to provide researchers with acceptable performance and cost effectiveness at petabyte scale, especially with the wide mix of file sizes that characterizes modern research workflows.

    But it’s not all bad news.

    Balancing researcher, IT, and executive team concerns, watch this video case study about the Department of Embryology at the Carnegie Institution for Science, and see why they turned to Qumulo’s modern scale-out storage to deliver the performance, scalability, and simplicity needed to keep pace with evolving research data requirements.

  • Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom?
    Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom? Monique J. Morrow, CTO, Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder, Humanized Internet Recorded: Apr 25 2017 43 mins
    A mixed-reality world driven by intelligent systems would have to be observing behavior and sensing physical phenomena continuously in order to provide individuals with appropriate content. Is that a sensible trade-off or a dance with the devil?

    Does the sensing possible with these technologies allow for ways to level the playing field or does it exacerbate existing power inequities? If the AI-enabled world of the future is monetized with personal data, then surveillance might well be baked into the system, but the ethical issues we see today will only be amplified in an immersive environment.

    Join this discussion with Monique Morrow, CTO & Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, for an in-depth look at what a true MR/AR/VR world means.
