Ritchie Fiddes, Executive Vice President Marketing, Backup Technology Limited
A disaster can strike at any time. A company that does not have a sound contingency in place can be exposed to prolonged downtime, causing loss of revenue and irreversible damage to its reputation. And as companies cope with the growing amount of corporate information being generated every day, they face a daunting truth: without their data, they have no business. That’s why it’s so critical to now have a modern and dependable system in place to safeguard valuable business information. Over the last decade, cloud backup, recovery and restore (BURR) options have emerged as secure, cost-effective and reliable solutions.

A cloud backup, recovery and restore solution takes advantage of your existing infrastructure, so you don’t need to buy or install expensive equipment. Cloud backup software integrates with IT environments to locate and prioritize files for backup, and then securely transmits encrypted copies of those files to offsite data centers. This results in a lower total cost of ownership compared to the purchase and maintenance of complex tape backup systems.

According to International Data Corporation (IDC), the volume of data worldwide is expected to increase 50 times by 2020. However, many organizations are experiencing a high level of data growth today as they struggle to keep up with the rise in data volumes. Businesses today must identify much better approaches to data management, retention, storage, sharing, access and security in order to effectively deal with this growth.
Join us as we discuss how an automated, secure cloud backup solution can remove the burden of managing the complex and error-prone data protection process. During this session we will review the trends and challenges in cloud-based data protection; continuous backup and recovery for various servers, laptops, mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones; and how to mitigate costs and risk.

  • Identity Access Management is a complex matrix of requirements meant to assure that only the right people have access to your data. This requires the creation of a rules, roles, and a method for preserving information about access rights. In other words, we create 'big data' that then must be mined to find the most risky individuals and risky behaviors. By starting with a risk-based approach, finding those behaviors and individuals is easier. Explore with us as we examine how risk values can be assigned as you build the database so that analyzing and reporting become easier.

  • Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) are one of the hottest new security technologies on the market. Recommended by Gartner, they provide visibility and control in a new IT world now based in public cloud applications and corporate data being accessed by employee BYOD devices.
  • As mitigating third party risk becomes an essential business function across many industries, business relationships will be tested. Organizations must now subscribe to a “trust, but verify” philosophy to ensure their third parties are secure. To verify vendor security, organizations now use BitSight Security Ratings, which are gathered externally and don’t rely on any vendor input.

    On August 27 at 1:00 pm EST join Debbie Umbach, Director of Product Marketing at BitSight as she discusses the best practices for implementing vendor security ratings. Viewers will learn:

    - different approaches for incorporating BitSight Security Ratings into vendor risk management (VRM) programs, whether your program is just getting started or is well underway
    - how companies have used BitSight Security Ratings to notify key vendors of security incidents
    - how vendor ratings can allow for more effective communication and thus greater transparency
