  • Not All Background Checks Are Created Equal
    Not All Background Checks Are Created Equal
    Nathan Rowe, Chief Technology Officer & Co-Founder , Evident Recorded: Nov 14 2018 43 mins
    "Why Background Checks Should Be a Part of Your IT Security Program"

    The term “background check” is not particularly well-defined –– it can mean many different things to different companies, and can also vary from type to type (and from vendor to vendor), but ultimately, having the right background checks in place can help organizations avoid serious IT and cyber security issues.

    Those who have never purchased background checks can be understandably confused and overwhelmed by the broad range of options, when selecting the right check can be as simple as evaluating them based on a few key factors: cost, scope, diligence, and regulatory compliance.

    Determining the best checks for your specific business needs can be a challenging undertaking. Some companies require background checks that are more comprehensive, while others may opt for checks that are less detailed and less costly.

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss the most common background checks available today, how they support a comprehensive IT cyber security program, and their applications in several different use cases, ranging from small businesses to enterprise-level organizations.

    Key takeaways:
    - Complete summary of all primary background check types
    - How background checks support a comprehensive (and compliant) cyber security program
    - Examples of which background checks work for specific company and industry use cases
    - Learn how automating background checks can minimize friction and reduce liability

  • How to Use Containers to Simplify Speedy Deployment of Database Workloads
    How to Use Containers to Simplify Speedy Deployment of Database Workloads
    Stephen O'Grady, RedMonk, Cornelia Davis & Ivan Novick, Pivotal Recorded: Nov 14 2018 59 mins
    Containers have been widely adopted to make development and testing faster, and are now used at enterprise scale for stateless applications in production. Database infrastructure has not seen quite the same gains in terms of velocity over that same period, however.

    Can containers be as transformative for databases as they have been for application development? If container technology can be leveraged for running database workloads, what impact does this have on architects and operations teams that are responsible for running databases?

    We’ll discuss the trends—from virtualization to cloud to containerization—and the intersection of these platform trends with the data-driven world.

  • Branched Execution, The Evolution of a Kill Chain
    Branched Execution, The Evolution of a Kill Chain
    Chris Berry, Director of Cybersecurity Analytics, System Soft Technologies Recorded: Nov 13 2018 34 mins
    In modern information security, we have come to understand that just as many organizations are being exploited through external threat vectors as internal. The relative ease in which an attack can be "customized" or at least "optimized" for a specific target is ever increasing.

    What we would like to explore is the ability of an existing Security analytics team to use existing logs, in conjunction with a "Big Data" back end to detect threats that may be evolving.

    Looking at existing/known attack techniques and using logs and near-time analysis we will look for how and where a known TTP chain may deviate to circumvent a Kill Chain/Alert or other active counter measures.

    Chris has more than 25 years working in the Security industry. Most Recently, Chris was in charge of product management for Cylance and charged with machine learning in their product development. Chris's experience has been derived from working within Healthcare, Financial Services, Government and a variety of compliance oriented industries.

  • Ecommerce, ML and Recommendation Engines: Why The Database Matters
    Ecommerce, ML and Recommendation Engines: Why The Database Matters
    Sucharita Kodali, Vice President & Principal Analyst, Forrester and Bharath Yadla, VP Product Strategy, Aerospike Recorded: Nov 13 2018 60 mins
    Online shoppers expect the right product at the right price at the right time. While this is a simple concept, the applications supporting these goals are extremely complex. An online retailer’s inventory, pricing and marketing management system must deliver real-time updates and associated recalculations within milliseconds in order to serve millions of dynamically-generated pages per second.

    The problem is exacerbated as an e-commerce business scales. Most databases cannot handle the inventory updates, price adjustments and personalized recommendations in real-time as early successes deliver a significant increase in demand. This degrades the customer experience just as word of mouth starts to take hold.

    In this webinar, Matt Bushell, Director of Product Marketing - Aerospike, and guest speaker, Sucharita Kodali, Vice President and Principal Analyst - Forrester Research, will cover:
    > The latest technology trends affecting the Retail/Ecommerce space
    > Where and how Machine Learning can be deployed
    > How one larger retailer is managing its dynamic growth and needs with a real-time database
  • Keeping Costs Under Control When Processing Big Data in the Cloud
    Keeping Costs Under Control When Processing Big Data in the Cloud
    Amit Duvedi and Balaji Mohanam, Qubole Recorded: Nov 13 2018 48 mins
    The biggest mistake businesses make when spending on data processing services in the cloud is in assuming that cloud will lower their overall cost. While the cloud has the potential to offer better economics both in the short and long-term, the bursty nature of big data processing requires following cloud engineering best practices, such as upscaling and downscaling infrastructure and leveraging the spot market for best pricing, to realize such economics.

    Businesses also fail to appreciate the potential of runaway costs in a 100% variable cost environment, something they rarely have to worry about in a fixed cost on-premise environment. In the absence of financial governance, companies leave themselves vulnerable to cost overruns where even a single rogue query can result in tens of thousands of dollars in unbudgeted spend.

    In this webinar you’ll learn how to:

    - Identify areas of cost optimization to drive maximum performance for the lowest TCO
    - Monitor total costs at the application, user, and account level
    - Provide admins the ability to control and design the infrastructure spend
    - Automatically optimize clusters for lower infrastructure spend based on custom-defined parameters
