  • Assessing Cloud Apps Risk Mar 25 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Mirror mirror on the wall who's the riskiest of them all?

    It's no secret that companies are adopting cloud applications like Office 365, Google Apps, Dropbox and Salesforce to help improve their business. With the cost savings and increased scale and efficiency of the cloud, who could blame them? But what some companies tend to overlook is that there is a level of risk when it comes to each of these apps, and that it can differ based on each company's use case.

    Do you know what cloud applications are running in your infrastructure today? How about the ones putting your sensitive data at the most amount of risk? Do you have a way of finding out?

    In this webinar Chris Hines, Product Manager at Bitglass will teach you what's necessary when it comes to determining your company's riskiest cloud applications.
  • Healthcare Analytics in a Disconnected World Mar 18 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Some of the most critical data required to solve analytical problems in the healthcare and life sciences world lack the type of keys that we rely on so heavily in other domains. This session will focus on solutions to the fundamental data connectivity challenges in this area and how to enable impactful analytics on a few high value but disconnected healthcare data sources.
  • Streamlining Deployment of Patient Record Systems Mar 12 2015 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Deploying new patient record systems is more than just servers, networking, and storage. Specialized software applications, compliance and secure data management all need to be considered. Traditional technology vendors all offer partial solutions but you’re left with the hard work. Join Chris Bukowski, Product Manager from NexGen Storage to learn about a better way to deploy patient record systems that include new value-driven data management capabilities that ensure a superior end user experience.
  • Securing Office 365 Mar 11 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    As much as Silicon Valley startup execs love to portray Microsoft as a dinosaur, the fact is that Office 365 adoption is accelerating in the enterprise. Office 365 offers a promising compromise for enterprises deciding, “to cloud or not to cloud": Bring cloud-based productivity tools under the company’s security umbrella so that people can work the way they want to, without sending sensitive company data astray. The idea that you can simply shift responsibility for your company’s data security to Microsoft, however, couldn’t be further from the truth. You can achieve Office 365 data security... but only through a partnership that involves, at its core, a comprehensive in-house security plan, together with Office 365’s built-in security functionality.

    In this webinar, Rich Campagna, VP Products at Bitglass, and Chris Hines, Product Marketing Manager, will help you understand where Microsoft’s security responsibility ends, and where yours begins, highlighting key gaps to keep in mind as you make the move to Office 365, and how to solve them.
  • Maintaining Security in a Mobile World Mar 4 2015 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The game has changed. Due to cost savings, and the privacy and mobility needs of employees, in just a few short years companies have loosened the mobile device leash.

According to Gartner, by 2017 fifty percent of companies will actually force employee to bring their own device to work.

    But if you’re tasked with securing devices, how do you accommodate BYOD? Where do you start and what kinds of security solutions should you be looking for?

    In this webinar, Chris Hines, Product Manager at Bitglass will teach you how to balance the needs of IT admins and employees when it comes to securing your mobile world.
