  • Long-term Data Retention: Challenges, Standards and Best Practices Long-term Data Retention: Challenges, Standards and Best Practices Simona Rabinovici-Cohen, IBM, Phillip Viana, IBM, Sam Fineberg Recorded: Feb 16 2017 61 mins
    The demand for digital data preservation has increased drastically in recent years. Maintaining a large amount of data for long periods of time (months, years, decades, or even forever) becomes even more important given government regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, OSHA, and many others that define specific preservation periods for critical records.

    While the move from paper to digital information over the past decades has greatly improved information access, it complicates information preservation. This is due to many factors including digital format changes, media obsolescence, media failure, and loss of contextual metadata. The Self-contained Information Retention Format (SIRF) was created by SNIA to facilitate long-term data storage and preservation. SIRF can be used with disk, tape, and cloud based storage containers, and is extensible to any new storage technologies. It provides an effective and efficient way to preserve and secure digital information for many decades, even with the ever-changing technology landscape.
Join this webcast to learn:
    •Key challenges of long-term data retention
    •How the SIRF format works and its key elements
    •How SIRF supports different storage containers - disks, tapes, CDMI and the cloud
    •Availability of Open SIRF

    SNIA experts that developed the SIRF standard will be on hand to answer your questions.

    This webinar is part one of a four part series that examines how digital transformation enables you to outperform competitors.

    Digital transformation occurs when a company adopts technologies and practices that change it from one that ships its software slowly and painfully to one that ships software quickly while, at the same time, improving its quality and mitigating risk. Businesses that embrace digital transformation outperform their competitors: they capitalize on disruption rather than allowing themselves to be disrupted. They deliver their software faster, with higher efficiency and lower risk. These advances can be quantified to prove their effectiveness.

    This short-form webinar series invites you to participate in a discussion on how to implement digital transformation and which metrics demonstrate progress on your journey. The first part of our series, focuses on the overall challenges businesses face in the marketplace and how to gauge where you stand. Subsequent webinars will focus on specific measures that move transformation forward.

  • The Data Warehouse in the Age of Digital Transformation The Data Warehouse in the Age of Digital Transformation Neil Raden, Principal Analyst, Hired Brains Research Feb 22 2017 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In the past years of Big Data and digital transformation “euphoria”, Hadoop and Spark received most of the attention as platforms for large-scale data management and analytics. Data warehouses based on relational database technology, for a variety of reasons, came under scrutiny as perhaps no longer needed.

    However, if there is anything users have learned recently it’s that the mission of data warehouses is as vital as ever. Cost and operational deficiencies can be overcome with a combination of cloud computing and open source software, and by leveraging the same economics of traditional big data projects - scale-up and scale-out at commodity pricing.

    In this webinar, Neil Raden from Hired Brains Research makes the case that an evolved data warehouse implementation continues to play a vital role in the enterprise, providing unique business value that actually aids digital transformation. Attendees will learn:

    - How the role of the data warehouse has evolved over time
    - Why Hadoop and Spark are not replacements for the data warehouse
    - How the data warehouse supports digital transformation initiatives
    - Real-life examples of data warehousing in digital transformation scenarios
    - Advice and best practices for evolving your own data warehouse practice

    The sad truth is that Invaders are trying to breach your defenses every day. With five out of every six large organizations being targeted by advanced attackers, protecting your data is a smart way to keep you from becoming tomorrow’s headline.

    So what does data protection mean? A comprehensive approach allows the right people to access the right data, anywhere, by controlling access, monitoring its flow, and keeping it out of the wrong hands.

    We will explain how Symantec technology addresses this approach and how you will benefit from:

    •Grant and ensure access only for authorized users with strong, multi-factor authentication, on any device, including BYOD.

    •Watching over data wherever it lives—in the cloud, on premise, in motion, and at rest.

    •Preventing data loss with unified policy controls to encrypt or block vulnerable information before it leaves the gate.
  • Calculation Tools & ICT Insights on energy saving:SAT-S, Save@work, GreenSpector Calculation Tools & ICT Insights on energy saving:SAT-S, Save@work, GreenSpector Thomas Corvaisier (Greenspector), Frédéric Croisson (Deloitte), Karen Robinson (Save@Work) Feb 23 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The 4th ICTFOOTPRINT free webinar has crucial information on ICT Calculation tools and Sustainable ICT insights on energy savings, on 23rd February 2017, 15:00 CET.

    Thomas Corvaisier (CEO of GREENSPECTOR) will introduce the concept of software eco-design, and tell us how it may help lowering the consumption of IT resources while preserving performance and user experience.

    Frédéric Croisson, from Deloitte Sustainability, will showcase the ICTFOOTPRINT.eu Self-Assessment Tool for Services (SAT-S), a useful, quick and easy-to-use tool that calculates the carbon footprint of your ICT services. The tool helps users not only to make informed decisions about how to make an ICT service sustainable, but also discover the impact of ICT devices & activities in terms of Green House Gas emissions and primary energy consumption. (SAT-S will be launched very soon).

    Karen Robinson will share some sustainable ICT practices and introduce the save@work initiative, which encourages public sector employee’s to come together in teams to reduce the energy consumption of their building by making small changes to their everyday energy consuming behaviours. Adding an element of competition to the project has been a significant driver in encouraging teams to really examine and challenge those unconscious energy consuming behaviours. The scale of working in a large office has also highlighted those practices that on their own seem to make almost insignificant savings but when applied across an office of over 300 people, have a very different impact.

    The webinar will be moderated by Silvana Muscella, Project Coordinator of ICTFOOTPRINT.eu and CEO of Trust-IT Services. Silvana has a broad experience in ICT sector, focusing on high-level strategy building, the delivery of multichannel platforms, business acquisition & development & strategic marketing for international clients.
  • Sensible Daten überall absichern, schützen und überwachen Sensible Daten überall absichern, schützen und überwachen Thomas Hemker, Matthias Senft Feb 23 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Es ist eine traurige Tatsache, dass Hacker tagtäglich versuchen, Ihre Abwehrmaßnahmen zu durchbrechen. Inzwischen werden fünf von sechs großen Organisationen zur Zielscheibe von versierten Angreifern. Daher sollten Sie Ihre Daten aktiv schützen, um nicht zur nächsten Schlagzeile zu werden.

    Was also bedeutet Schutz von Daten? Ein umfassendes Schutzsystem ermöglicht den richtigen Personen von überall aus Zugang zu den entsprechenden Daten, indem es den Zugriff steuert, den Fluss der Daten überwacht und dafür sorgt, dass diese nicht in falsche Hände geraten.

    Wir erläutern, wie dieser Ansatz mit Symantec-Technologien umgesetzt werden kann, um Ihnen Folgendes zu ermöglichen:

    •Sicherstellen, dass nur autorisierten Benutzern Zugriff gewährt wird, indem Sie auf allen Geräten – einschließlich bei der Nutzung privater Mobilgeräte im Unternehmen (BYOD) – eine starke Multifaktor-Authentifizierung einsetzen.

    •Daten überwachen, ganz gleich, wo sie sich befinden – in der Cloud, vor Ort, auf Mobilgeräten und im Speicher.

    •Datenverlust mithilfe einheitlicher Richtlinienkontrollen verhindern, damit sensible Daten verschlüsselt oder blockiert werden, bevor sie das Unternehmen verlassen.
  • [VIDEO Panel] Securing the Cloud and Driving Digital Transformation [VIDEO Panel] Securing the Cloud and Driving Digital Transformation Josh Downs, BrightTALK (moderator); Dan Webb, James Brown, Oliver Pinson-Roxburgh & David Howorth, Alert Logic Feb 23 2017 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Digital transformation is changing the business landscape for every organisation, with the way new technologies can unlock competitive advantage, enable efficiently, agility and enhance customer experiences. The cloud is where this innovation is happening and enabling this transformation, but when you take advantage of its possibilities, it’s crucial that you secure your cloud applications and workloads.

    If you’re building applications or migrating workloads to the cloud, you’re probably like most organisations – trying to determine what security controls are needed, and how to integrate workload security without slowing down innovation or needing to add dedicated security staff – which these days is harder to find and more expensive to keep.

    During this panel discussion you will hear from industry experts as they discuss what steps and considerations should be taken when moving to any cloud. Where are the responsibilities of security and how do you maintain visibility and control over your data, including:

    - Why when moving business critical applications to the cloud you require a different approach to security?
    - Best Practices for minimizing risk in your cloud adoption
    - Filling the Cloud Security IT Skills Gap
    - Managing the Challenges of the Cloud under EU GDPR

  • PKI - Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats PKI - Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats Rae Barton, Enterprise PKI Expert at Gemalto Feb 23 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    PKI used to be difficult to implement, and was seen as complex, labor intensive and expensive. The development of powerful credential management software has brought considerable improvements. It now does much of the manual work that used to be left up to the administrators saving them valuable time in the war against security threats. In our last webinar, we found almost 50% of those you voted cited the Internet of Things as the main driver for PKI. More connected devices and users will create a need for higher levels of security in all organizations as the number of possible threats and attacks increase.

    For security professionals, implementing and modernizing their PKI systems will be crucial, keeping in mind not all PKI implementations are created equal. Some are inherently more complex, depending on the level and layers of security needed for within your organization. Following our previous PKI foundational webinar, this one will cover the elements you need to consider when designing a PKI environment.

    Join us for the “PKI – Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats” to learn how you can maximize your organization’s security and the things you need to know to get started including:

    •PKI use cases in an enterprise environment to secure access and protect data
    •Budgeting for your PKI deployment of modernization
    •Outlining the deployment size, scope and timeline
    •Analyzing and reviewing current and/or future security policies
    •Maintenance and administration of the PKI system
    •Configuring and understanding certificate authorities
    •Developing a scalable approach to prepare for future needs
    •Addressing the protection of sensitive keys and the ecosystem integration

    Working in silos, while never a good idea, is a reality in many organizations today. Security and network operations teams have different priorities, processes and systems. Security teams use various controls and tools to mitigate different kinds of threats which provides them with thousands of alerts on a daily basis. They often find it difficult to prioritize the threats to address first. What they may not know is that there is a whole piece of the puzzle they could be missing - core network services like DNS, DHCP and IPAM. These can provide a wealth of information and context on threats, which can help prioritize response based on actual risk and ease compliance. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on February 23, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a roundtable discussion on how to use ecosystem integrations between network and security tools for better security and compliance.
