    ABOUT CHRISTIAN

    Githhub: https://github.com/chrish42

    When did you learn to code?

    I learned to code as a kid, starting with BASIC on this thing called a pocket computer — this one, actually: http://oldcomputers.net/trs80pc3.html. My first real computer was a Commodore 64, which was my first real computer. My two other formative early experiences were learning C once we got our first PC, and working through the SICP book for a course dedicated to that book during my bachelors in Computer Engineering.

    What's your coding pet peeve?

    Definitely people who write code only for computers and not for their human audiences too.

    What are your favorite programming languages?

    My favorite high-level language is still Python, even after 20+ years. It still hits the sweet spot between expressiveness, conciseness, readability and ease of use.

    What's your go-to coding playlist (or podcast)?

    Mostly silence, actually. But for the occasions that I do, it's mostly white noise, or baroque classical music. I find most other music too distracting, especially anything with lyrics, or even with too much of a musical "story".

    Nick Cross VMware, Andrew Buss EEA, Garry Owen VMware, Leon Chang AT&T Recorded: Nov 26 2020 58 mins
    Business Continuity solutions in the IT space certainly aren’t new, but in the light of recent events, have moved overnight from being an insurance policy to being a critical and current business need. Organizations across the world are either preparing to, or are already implementing, remote work policies for their employees, the success of which can dictate whether business can continue at all as offices become no-go zones. But this isn’t just about virtual desktops and mobility solutions: most organizations will already have at least some provision for remote working, but the current situation dictates that nearly the entire workforce may have to work from home to keep businesses afloat. What are the implications of this for network connectivity and bandwidth? What do you need to do manage all these new connections from outside the firewall? Is this even a practical proposition with your current network implementation? In this webinar, industry experts from VMware and IDC will be discussing the best short and long-term networking practices and solutions that you should be adopting now and in the future, to help guarantee the continuity of your business, even in times like these.

    1-2-3 clicks: Optimized checkout experience boosting your conversion rates
    Jukka Yliuntinen, Head of Digital Solutions for Financial Institutions Recorded: Nov 24 2020 14 mins
    With shopping shifting from brick-and-mortar to online, the amount of payment frauds have increased. For customers, updating and handling payment credentials and personal data at the checkout can be a real conversion killer. For online merchants, storing this type of data opens up for great risks if data breaches occur. With card-on-file tokenization, the customer can pay frictionless without having to worry about where sensitive credentals are stored, or have to update expiring card data. For online merchants, no payment data is stored making the checkout process not only more secure but also quicker.
    In this talk, our digital payment champions Jukka Yliuntinen and Dietmar Maierhöfer will take you behind the scenes and give insights in how this is done.

    Ransomware Survival Guide: Ransomware Kill Switch
    Ritesh Agrawal, CEO, Airgap Networks Nov 30 2020 4:00 pm UTC 29 mins
    Ransomware attacks continue to plague K–12 schools nationwide, and they’re not slowing down anytime soon. In the pandemic, more than 1,000 educational institutions have fallen victim to ransomware, according to a report by security firm Armor. With most schools implementing some form of online instruction this school year, these attacks have only increased in volume and speed, and their impact is much more significant.

    In addition to the ransom itself, these attacks can exact a heavy cost: school district operation disruption, remediation costs, and job implication.

    In this BrightTalk session, Edu tech and IT will learn:
    How ransomware is surging in a remote/online learning environment?
    What is the fundamental mind shift in network design required?
    What to do before, during, and after a ransomware attack with Zero Trust solution?
    Why you shouldn’t and cannot pay ransoms?
    What is Ransomware Kill Switch and how it can protect you?

    Overwhelmed with data from different sources and systems?
    Phil Coop, Marketing Cloud Director, Acquia APJ Dec 1 2020 3:00 am UTC 30 mins
    We know a well-defined customer data management framework can help ensure that valuable customer data is not locked up in silos, but rather flows freely across the organization, not only providing a single source of truth to marketing and other customer-facing functions such as sales and service; but also enabling real-time, data-driven responses to customer actions.

    According to Forrester, “On average, between 60% and 73% of all data within an enterprise goes unused for analytics.” Today there is a data deluge in most organizations, where millions of data points are coming into the system from thousands of customer touchpoints across diverse channels, platforms and devices.

    Organisations first need to understand what and how data needs to be ingested into the system to effectively use a customer data platform.

    The problem is, many of us face multiple challenges with integrating a CDP with all current/pre-existing relevant systems (BI, CRM, MA, 3rd Party Industry Data, etc.).

    In this session you will learn:

    - The first step in building a practical customer data integration plan and strategy.
    - How to unify all data from different sources to gain a 360° view of customers (Identity Resolution)
    - How to strategically and effectively deliver relevant and useful experiences based on customer data at scale

    Operationalize Threat Intelligence with Mandiant Security Validation
    Alexis Bourbion, Sales, Mandiant Threat Intelligence & David Grout, Director Southern Europe Sales Engineering Dec 1 2020 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    A recent SANS study showed that while organizations used threat intelligence to hypothesize where attackers may be found, they lack the investigative skills to conduct searches. This limitation exacerbates their struggle to justify the high-cost of cyber defenses and organizations often rely on assumptions to guide decisions and justify decisions.

    This session reveals the actual state of cyber security based on real world data around cyber security controls across enterprise networks, from email, endpoint, network and the cloud. It also explains how security validation can validate, consolidate, recoup and maximize the value from existing investments.

    Ransomware Survival Guide: Healthcare
    Ritesh Agrawal and Jason Mafera Dec 1 2020 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    "All systems were quickly disconnected, and the network was shut down in order to prevent further propagation," Is this your response to a ransomware attack? If the answer is Yes or Maybe, this BrightTalk session can help you improve your ransomware response. In Oct 2020, Ransomware hit the Universal Health Services (UHS), one of the largest US health systems, and consequently, malicious actor affected all of its US care sites and hospitals, spurring clinicians into EHR downtime procedures.

    In this BrightTalk session, Healthcare tech and IT will learn:
    How ransomware is surging in Healthcare facilities?
    Why agent-based endpoint security may not be your answer to ransomware defense
    What is the fundamental mind shift in network design required?
    What to do before, during, and after a ransomware attack with Zero Trust solution?
    Why you shouldn’t and cannot pay ransoms? What is Ransomware Kill Switch and how it can protect you?
    How to stop ransomware propagation in seconds?

    Financial Services Case Study: Using Automation to Manage Influx of Documents
    Patricia Diaz-Hymes, Director of Product Marketing at Hyperscience Dec 1 2020 4:00 pm UTC 16 mins
    No one was prepared for the effects COVID-19 would have on the world. Many companies continue to struggle with the high demand of services being requested by their customers. In the financial services industry, they are seeing an influx in document processing requests and the legacy technology in place is not keeping up with the demand. Banks and lenders are witnessing first hand this strained process and how it is effecting their customers.

    Recently, a large financial service company was facing a similar issue.. With the advances in automation and machine learning, companies are leaving their legacy technologies behind and turning to faster, more efficient solutions.

    In this session, Patricia Diaz-Hymes, Director of Product Marketing at Hyperscience, talks about automation and how it can assist banks with the influxes they are seeing. Join us to hear about:

    -Reasons banks and lenders are struggling to serve their customers

    Managing Remote Teams: Business Best Practices for 2020 and Beyond
    Irwin Lazar - Vice President & Service Director, Nemertes; Todd Carothers - Chief Revenue Officer of CounterPath; Dec 1 2020 4:00 pm UTC 42 mins
    We're teaming up with global research firm Nemertes to reveal brand new research and data to help you make the best decisions in managing remote teams:

    - Why work-from-home is here to stay
    - Managing security concerns
    - Methods to cut costs
    - Conquering shadow IT
    - Steps to create a future-proof solution for your team

    In the blink of an eye, companies across the globe went virtual to combat the threat of COVID-19. While this move may have originally been a temporary change, new research shows work-from-home is here to stay.

    Even as lockdown restrictions begin to lift, 35% of companies say they definitely plan to continue to allow work-from-home, and an additional 35% say they’re likely to do so, according to research firm Nemertes.

    That sudden shift to a remote workforce (and now back from it) brings a significant amount of risk, particularly around shadow IT. We're teaming up with global research and advisory firm Nemertes to share emerging research, and talk about how to mitigate risks while building a long-term solution for your team.

  • The Digital Workplace
    The Digital Workplace
    Dirk Schlotter Dec 2 2020 3:00 am UTC 36 mins
    68% of companies now believe that the future workforce will be remote*. A hybrid of remote working and reduced office working will be the new reality. On one hand, this could have positive outcomes such as increased productivity for some departments, but on the other hand, it may also negatively impact work/life balance and raise mental health issues.

    In this session, we will be discussing the changing concept of work, the workplace and the environment that business leaders need to create to thrive in this new world in relation to:

    • Changes to the physical workplace: Offices may need to be repurposed as drop‐in collaboration centres rather than everyday bases, and use more tech such as VR
    • Smarter working: With the proliferation of video and web conferencing, how can you enable more productive collaboration tools such as document sharing, annotation and white‐boarding
    • The importance of security: How to protect the organisation from today's evolving threat landscape especially when the employee's environment is out of your control
    • What to prioritise to enable your digital workplace: Simplicity and integration are key in this area in order to provide employees with a single, app‐like experience across the tools they use every day

    Attend this session to solidify your plans and uncover the journey to the new digital workplace.

    How to Accelerate Growth in a Post-COVID World: 8 Strategic Imperatives
    Archana Vidyasekar and Richard Sear, Frost & Sullivan Dec 2 2020 4:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Visualizing and articulating a possible future for an organization or company has always been vital to long-term success. Disruption of the global economy, industry, companies, and investments makes it difficult to prepare your company for the future. A solid, realistic vision and strategy will enable organizations to set long-term objectives and build a growth pipeline of innovative opportunities, leading to sustained, transformational growth. Though growth cultures are desirable, and most leaders claim to understand what they entail, they are hard to create and maintain. Why is it becoming increasingly difficult to grow? The reason, often, is that leaders don’t understand the growth imperatives that are strategic to their long-term success.

    Using ML/AI and Metadata to Detect Anomalous Activity and Produce Actionable Alerts for Known/Unknown Threats

    Collecting hundreds of log types and analyzing them has shown to be an ineffective approach to threat detection, even when applying behavior analysis and machine learning. The converse entails capturing the raw data and facing delays to decode and reassemble, plus high storage expenses. Logs lack content and context, and the raw data itself is too slow to analyze and expensive if you require a time span of months or a year. And while most security tools focus on specific detection techniques, Fidelis leverages more than 20 different detection methods… including endpoint and asset terrain, deep session and deep packet inspection, sandboxing, malware detection, metadata analytics, threat intelligence and more… making it that much harder for attackers to evade.
