  • The rise of multi-cloud - what to expect and how to prepare
    The rise of multi-cloud - what to expect and how to prepare Antonio Piraino, Chief Technical Officer, ScienceLogic Recorded: Oct 18 2017 60 mins
    With HyperScale Clouds reaching their eleventh year of operation, The Cloud is no longer a semi-autonomous shadow-IT playground, but rather the critical component of any Enterprise Transformation strategy. The fear of cloud failure is no longer the deterrent it once was, and modern strategies dictate a multi-cloud architecture allowing for optimized value and simultaneous risk mitigation. This webinar discusses why there is now widespread adoption of a multi-cloud strategy, and how it helps to achieve several business objectives; namely: optimized ROI, superior security, lower latency and higher throughput, greater autonomy, greater availability and resource optimization. Antonio will also dig into the most current emerging trends of the multi-cloud, including immutable infrastructure and the concurrent tools transformation accompanying this paradigm shift.

  • How to Bridge the Gap between Citizen Developers and Corporate IT
    How to Bridge the Gap between Citizen Developers and Corporate IT Stephen Terlizzi Oct 24 2017 5:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Not everyone can write code – but nearly anyone can solve a problem. Today's businesses are facing an ever increasing set of problems that require innovative digital solutions. Learn how to safely enable a new army of application developers: the citizen developer.

    This webinar will examine the use of citizen developers to meet the ever increasing demand for new applications. We will discuss:

    • The current challenges with citizen developers and the gap between them and corporate IT

    • An new approach to the application development lifecycle to reduce the complexity of software development and empower this new army of developers

    • Potential areas where citizen developers can quickly build their own applications
  • Bias in the Web
    Bias in the Web Ricardo Baeza-Yates, CTO, NTENT; ACM Fellow; IEEE Fellow Oct 24 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Web is the most powerful communication medium and the largest public data repository that humankind has created. Its content ranges from great reference sources such as Wikipedia to ugly fake news. Indeed, social (digital) media is just an amplifying mirror of ourselves. Hence, the main challenge of search engines and other websites that rely on web data is to assess the quality of such data. However, as all people have their own biases, web content, as well as our web interactions, are tainted with many biases.

    Data bias includes redundancy and spam, while interaction bias includes activity and presentation bias. In addition, sometimes algorithms add bias, particularly in the context of search and recommendation systems. As bias generates bias, we stress the importance of de-biasing data as well as using the context and other techniques such as explore & exploit, to break the filter bubble.

    The main goal of this talk is to make people aware of the different biases that affect all of us on the Web. Awareness is the first step to be able to fight and reduce the vicious cycle of bias.

    Ricardo Baeza-Yates areas of expertise are web search and data mining, information retrieval, data science, and algorithms. He is CTO of NTENT, a semantic search technology company based in California, USA since 2016. Before, he was VP of Research at Yahoo Labs, based first in Barcelona, Spain, and later in Sunnyvale, California, from January 2006 to February 2016. He also is part time Professor at DTIC of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona, Spain, as well as at DCC of Universidad de Chile in Santiago.

    Cloud Interconnection: A Faster, More Secure Road to the Cloud Carlos Arévalo, Global Solutions Architect, Equinix | David Maclean, Systems Engineer, F5 Networks Oct 25 2017 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Organisations are rapidly adopting cloud interconnection at colocation facilities. It is an ideal place to provide services that need to be shared by multiple cloud locations, run legacy applications, or deliver application and security services. By deploying application delivery with cloud interconnection services, businesses get the flexibility and scale of the public cloud without sacrificing security, availability, and performance of their applications.

    Join Equinix and F5 experts for an informative webinar where you will learn how to:

    - Benefit from cloud interconnection services
    - Deliver advanced security services: Single sign-on, Cloud federation, Web application firewall, SSL inspection, DDoS protection, DNS, and more
    - Leverage cloud gateway services as a central point of control between legacy data centers, colocation, and public, private, or hybrid cloud
    - Avoid cloud provider lock-in through direct, private access to multiple public clouds
  • Endpoint Security: No longer taking a back seat!
    Endpoint Security: No longer taking a back seat! Remon Verkerk, Systems Engineer, FireEye Oct 25 2017 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Endpoint security has long been an obvious necessity, but mostly proved a resource heavy burden with limited value. The threat landscape has changed and so have the attack vectors. Endpoints are a popular and often easy in to customer networks. This ideal stepping stone needs proper protection and NGAV is no longer sufficient. Privacy laws and regulations demand answers quickly when things go south and data breaches occur. The endpoint is usually a good starting point to provider answers to questions like:

    - Is there command and control activity?
    - Did lateral movement occur?
    - What other systems were accessed?
    - Et cetera…

    This webinar explains how FireEye Endpoint Security (HX) helps our customer to protect their endpoints, and enable you to go from alert to fix in a matter of minutes. Visibility, speed and cost efficiency are the key components in this solution.

    After this webinar, you will have good understanding of the capabilities on countering attacks on your endpoints, and how Fireeye’s Endpoint Security can be of added value to your organisation.

  • Top 10 Public Cloud Security Recommendations
    Top 10 Public Cloud Security Recommendations Matt Keil, Director of Product Marketing, Public Cloud Oct 25 2017 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Offering organizations of all sizes the benefits of agility and scalability, the adoption of public cloud continues at a pace rivalled only by that of the early days of the Internet era. As was the case then, the speed of adoption often means that “good enough” security is viewed as acceptable.

    With the underlying premise that the public cloud is someone else’s computer, and an extension of your network this session will cover public cloud security concerns, what the shared security responsibility model really means and recommendations for protecting your public cloud workloads and data.
