  • A Data Breach Prevention, Detection & Response Strategy to Combat Todays Threats
    A Data Breach Prevention, Detection & Response Strategy to Combat Todays Threats Nick Frost, Principal Consultant, ISF LTD Recorded: Sep 18 2018 47 mins
    With the ever-increasing frequency and sophistication of security threats to organisations, business leaders need to have a comprehensive data security strategy to protect themselves. Information security practitioners have to think and plan beyond existing protection capabilities that are aimed at preventing threats only. Today's cyber security strategies need to protect an organisations mission critical assets in a way that is:

    ‒ balanced, providing a mixture of informative, preventative and detective security controls that complement each other
    ‒ comprehensive, providing protection before, during and after threat events materialise into security incidents
    ‒ end-to-end, covering the complete information life cycle.

    This will enable organisations to match the protection provided with the sophistication of threats to such mission critical information assets. This webinar will look at past and present models and share ideas on how organisations can ‘future proof’ their strategies to combat next generation threats.

    In particular in this webinar, Nick Frost, Principal Consultant at the ISF will discuss what actions can be taken to identify your most critical information assets, and how a modern day cyber security model needs to focus on prevention and detection of a data breach, and how to respond to a breach in order to reduce damage to brand and reputation.

Once these digital transformation objectives have been established, success metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) can guide the path to measuring performance and investments effectively.

  • The Art of Sales and Management
    The Art of Sales and Management Laurence Winmill, ISM Fellow Recorded: Sep 4 2018 50 mins
    I keep saying to business owners, C-Suite Executives, Managers and Employees that nothing happens in business until somebody sells something.

    That’s the message of this webinar. Great organisations are those that understand people, create and adapt process and manage with empathy and leadership that inspires everyone in the business to work, breathe and share the core values that underpin everything the brand stands for.

    Sales is all about people and the messages focus on why selling is an emotional experience and the essential human characteristics needed to be successful. It’s not about glittering CV’s or past reputation it’s about what you believe and how persuasive and authentic your messages are during your conversations between you and the client.

    However, structure and processes that keep the business on track are an important part of any organisation’s success and having the right leaders in place that understand people and live and breathe the visions and values of the company is an essential part of the machine.

    Great people, processes that work and inspired leadership is what this webinar is all about.

    Competing on customer experience in retail is not just a passing fad – it’s here to stay. Customers expect more, want convenience, and they change quickly. Retailers have responded by introducing new channels, services, and personalized marketing promotions to capture customers’ attention and wallet share. What does it take to really take to engage with customers?  The answer is hidden in your data. According to Forbes, 80% of data is dark and untouched - meaning it’s never actually used to make improvements or changes deemed necessary by the customer.
    In this discussion you’ll learn what is possible as we review how you can create a trusted 360-degree view of your customer and put the customer truly at the center of your operations.  We’ll review how retailers of all types are delivering a customer experience that sets them apart from other brands to drive consumer loyalty.  And we’ll share the best practices and use cases retailers have adopted to get to know their customers better by unleashing the disruptive power of their data.

    You can only succeed – in the long term - if you give value and help customers.

With better product information and insight, retailers will be to engage with customers in a more personal and meaningful way, driving additional revenue.

  • Edge Computing: the opportunity behind distributing    capabilities
    Edge Computing: the opportunity behind distributing capabilities Gabriele Roberti, Douglas Hayward, Bruno Teyton, Helena Schwenk, Chris Barnard and Giorgio Nebuloni Sep 26 2018 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Delocalizing intelligence to edge locations seems counterintuitive in the Cloud era, but history has proven to be cyclical also in the IT world. In the last months, “Edge” has been a skyrocketing buzzword, to highlight the fact that transmitting and elaborating data into “the Core” is not always the best choice. As found in recent IDC research, IoT users in Europe have a mixed approach to data processing and are almost equally split between processing data on-premises within a centralized platform (37%) and processing data at the edge on sensors and devices (36%). At the same time, all kind of vendors and Service Providers in the IT space are now adding “Edge” capabilities to their portfolios.

    In this IDC Web Conference Gabriele Roberti, Douglas Hayward, Bruno Teyton from the Edge Computing working team will give an overview on the European Edge Computing scenario, and how this is impacting on and relating to other technologies, like the Internet of Things.

    Some of the key points to be discussed in this webcast will be:

    1. What is “the Edge” and how to classify different types of Edge

    2. How different Edge models intersect with industry deployments and different use cases in Europe

    3. Telcos and edge: unlocking new revenue opportunities and enabling 5G use cases in distributed architectures

    4. Some European real-life implementations of Edge Computing and how the Edge paradigm is paving the way to new opportunities for both end-users and vendors

    Data Privacy– Why your company should know what’s behind the compliance curtain! Jeff Hughes CA Technologies, Alan Shimel DevOps.com Sep 27 2018 8:00 am UTC 48 mins
    Data Privacy has once again vaulted to the forefront with Facebook and other large companies grappling with data breaches and the use (or misuse) of personal data. We are charting new frontiers in data privacy and legislation alone will not mitigate the data challenges that lay ahead. Brand loyalty and brand trust can take years to build, but can be lost in an instant with one data privacy misstep. There are a number of regulatory challenges facing enterprises globally that need to be considered as well including The US Patriot Act and the upcoming GDPR requirement

  • [Earn 1 CPE] Compliance vs Risk: Aligning Priorities & Prioritizing Threats
    [Earn 1 CPE] Compliance vs Risk: Aligning Priorities & Prioritizing Threats Colin Whittaker, Moderator. Stephen Boyer, CTO at BitSight; Marc French, SVP at Mimecast; Scott Petry, CEO at Authentic8. Sep 27 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Compliance is a fundamental pillar to effective risk management at any company. However, simply complying with laws and regulations without considering the broader threat landscape can result in disaster. Certainly, a balance between compliance and risk is necessary. Ensuring compliance represents an organization's starting point, not the endgame, should be a priority.

    In a dynamic threat environment, forward-thinking organizations have concluded that the goal of total protection is elusive and that a risk-based approach to governance and management of cybersecurity is necessary. That is easier said than done, as the way most information security professionals measure risk today fails to quantify threats in terms the business can understand and use. In this CPE accredited webinar, our panel of experts will discuss:

    - Aligning risk and compliance metrics and controls across functional domains.
    - Benchmarking existing process for managing the risks identified by stakeholders.
    - Creating a transparent 'system of record' and collaborative process life-cycle management system.
    - Prioritizing control efforts accordingly.
    - Aligning compliance investments with compliance risk ratings and business priorities.

  • Modernize & Automate Windows Workloads on AWS
    Modernize & Automate Windows Workloads on AWS Eric Miller, Onica's VP of Solutions and Development Sep 27 2018 7:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    There’s a common misconception that Microsoft workloads are more naturally suited to run on Microsoft Azure. However, the hundreds of migrations Onica has performed shows that this is not necessarily the case. Microsoft workloads run well on AWS, in fact more Microsoft workloads run on AWS than on any other platform. Don’t limit your Microsoft workloads and development team to Azure. Instead, consider the possibilities of AWS with our team of certified experts.

    Join Onica and Amazon Web Services (AWS) for a webinar focused on migrating Windows workloads to AWS and running .NET applications in the cloud. Whether you're running Microsoft Windows, SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint, or custom .NET applications, you can rely on the secure global infrastructure of AWS to easily run any Microsoft Windows Server application in the cloud. We’ll discuss the various benefits running Windows workloads on AWS bring such as cost savings and reliability as well as how to reinvent your business with accelerated innovation through Windows automation and faster .NET application release cycles.

    What we'll cover:
    • Why AWS is the chosen platform for Windows workloads: more secure, more cost-effective and higher performance
    •Enhance and future-proof your Windows applications and accelerate innovation by utilizing the AWS platform for Serverless .NET development
    •Demonstration on how to seamlessly integrate and automate your .NET development and deployment onto AWS
    • Customer success story: Learn how Onica enabled a leading provider of technology-enabled financial solutions to deploy and re-deploy their 150+ Windows applications within minutes, greatly contrasting with an average pre-migration release window of 8.5 hours.
  • Relevance, Risk, and Resilience: The 3Rs That Matter in Utility Transformation
    Relevance, Risk, and Resilience: The 3Rs That Matter in Utility Transformation Roberta Bigliani, VP, IDC Energy, Government and Health Insights Sep 28 2018 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Utilities are facing some of the strongest headwinds in their century-old history. Technology is changing how energy and resources are produced, transported, and consumed, as well as our ability to conserve them. Digital technologies have changed not so much the nature of utility services, but how consumer expect them to be delivered. They are also opening avenues for utilities to do different things, while deeply transforming their core operating model.

    During the webcast, IDC Energy Insights analysts will share views on emerging utility industry and technology themes, such as:

    •Digital utility maturity. Most utilities fall into what IDC defines digitally distraught organizations. These companies are either running digital as an impromptu effort, running multiple digital strategies initiated by the line of business, or are operating with a short-term perspective.

    •Roadblocks on the transformation journey. Transforming is not an easy journey and most of utilities are facing execution challenges. Siloed initiatives, limited expertise, and weak roadmaps are but a few of the most common stumbling blocks.

    •New key success factors utilities should consider as they evolve toward digitally determined organizations and how leading European utilities are working with the ecosystem to overcome some of the barriers to transformation.
