Modern businesses are being transformed into digital businesses. To do so, IT is being re-imagined to span hybrid infrastructures; including multiple data centers, co-location facilities and cloud service providers. This hybrid approach has many benefits including cost savings, but can increase the overall difficulty in supporting such environments to deliver a predictable level of IT services. We’ll discuss one methodology designed to assess your current risk profile and spot vulnerabilities.
Before an organization can benefit from a self-service data environment to reduce time to insight, an essential first step is to catalog your data so that business users can discover what’s important to them. Seamlessly wrapping other self-service data tools around a comprehensive data catalog is the remainder of the journey to faster business insights.
This webinar will discuss approaches that enable self-service data for analytics, from discovery to insight, including making the most from a data lake and standing up new data processing pipelines for achieving business success.

When AI meets automation, organizations win. Companies can manage volumes of information and unstructured data as never before--and that makes other programs and applications easier to use. As for standardized data, robotic process automation (RPA), and other automation tools, they've already enhanced the work of humans--and have even exceeded human performance in some cases. That leaves people free to do what they do best--empathize and take a nuanced approach to make complex connections. In such instances, the human touch will always prevail.
As more companies adopt artificial intelligence, it's important to be aware of the hurdles ahead. And, more importantly, know how to overcome them. Sanjay Srivastava, CDO at Genpact, shares his insights on how to make your AI investments a success.
Most of us want to have better meetings with senior executives. Meetings that feel like conversations, not pitches. Meetings that build deeper relationships. Meetings that uncover more ways in which they can help their customers. Behind closed doors, when I ask what's holding people back, many will tell me things like, "I don't feel comfortable," "I have nothing to offer to them,"" or "I'm not at their level." Selling to Senior level executives can be difficult, and getting a first meeting can be a real challenge. But, in our experience, the most difficult part is not getting the first meeting. It's getting the second one. Or the third one. This webinar explores the ways that you can get to that second and third meeting

Infrastructure spending is shifting towards services providers. Most of the data already resides with service providers and where are currently at a tipping point when a majority of spending on servers, storage and networking takes place in the service provider segment of the market. With this shift is spending, innovation and key skills are expected to shift as well. Service providers are already at the center stage in many aspects of Digital Transformation, from technology to operations.
At the same time, it is not only the size of the market that is changing, it is also its structure. For example, with rapid growth of ODMs in the region, competition in the market intensifies. In these circumstances, it is more important than ever to understand the rapidly evolving service provider market in a greater detail than ever.
After almost a year of research, IDC rolls out a brand new detailed view on infrastructure spending in the service provider market, segmenting the market by service provider type and tier 1-3 and tracking ODM spending and other aspects, such as in which geography the purchasing decisions are made as opposed to where the shipments land.
Please join Giorgio Nebuloni and team on February 22nd, 2018, where these questions along with key findings from IDC EMEA Service Provider Model will be presented. Essential guidance to European infrastructure vendors will also be provided, as organizations plan their infrastructure spending for 2018 and onwards.

Auf der Wunschliste für tägliche Aufgaben steht Hunting bei Sicherheitsanalysten, SOC Mitarbeitern und Administratoren häufig ganz oben. Die fehlenden Möglichkeiten, Aufgaben sinnvoll und effizient zu priorisieren und dabei die Sicht aufs Ganze zu behalten sorgt aber oft dafür, dass dieser Wunsch selten erfüllt wird und stattdessen die tägliche Routine in der Analyse von false positive Alarmen und Alarmen mit geringer Kritikalität liegt.
FireEye Helix stellt eingehende Alarme in Kontext dar, bewertet diese und bietet Ihnen so die Möglichkeit, schnell zu priorisieren und bei den wenigen, entscheidenden Fällen in der gleichen Oberfläche mit dem Hunting zu beginnen.
Dieses Webinar gibt einen kurzen Überblick über die Möglichkeiten der FireEye Helix Plattform gefolgt von einer leicht verständlichen Hunting-Demonstration.
Incidents are fast-paced, dynamic events, forcing responders in to stressful and unfamiliar situations. Ineffective or delayed response to an incident can potentially lead to millions of dollars in lost revenue and damages. Even seasoned response teams require structure and leadership to respond effectively to an incident.
This webinar offers a deeper look into the Incident Management System (IMS) and explains how when combined with a properly designed and implemented incident response process, the IMS can help organizations achieve a more effective and efficient incident management process, translating directly to a decrease in financial loss and reputational damage from incidents.
- One of the core requirements of an IMS is that it must remain both flexible and scalable.
- The first and most crucial step in implementing an IMS is integrating it into current organization processes and procedures.
- Incorporating an IMS can elevate incident management to a level which is simply not possible with a more ad hoc system.
- Utilizing an IMS for every incident large and small alike, will ensure that stakeholders remain proficient and in control of the process.
Join us on this webinar as we try to answer the common questions surrounding how to increase the effectiveness of incident management, including the best set up of an Incident Management System, its structure and roles, when it should be used, as well as how an organization should go about implementation.

Organisations around the world are embracing cloud solutions like Office 365 at a breakneck pace, but online collaborative platforms can leave an unprepared organisation vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Who is accessing your cloud applications? Are they truly authorised users, and are they conducting illegitimate activities?
Without sufficient visibility, detection and protection, it can be easy for a cyber-criminal, or rogue employee to slip through the cracks – and when they do, your sensitive data won’t be their only target. Cyber-criminals have been known to load partial payloads for ransomware attacks, access email accounts for targeted phishing campaigns, host malware on SharePoint, and more.
On 6 March 2018, Symantec will be hosting the ‘Securing the Cloud Generation: Who’s Using My Cloud’ webinar. Join our speaker and panel of experts as they discuss:
