  • CEO PoV: Take Control of your Cloud Application Experience
    CEO PoV: Take Control of your Cloud Application Experience Praveen Akkiraju, CEO, Viptela Recorded: Apr 20 2017 39 mins
    Enterprises are undergoing a revolution in their infrastructure as the application world is being transformed by cloud technologies. Today your applications can be located in the data center, through IaaS, or in a SaaS cloud. Similarly, users are transforming with mobility; no longer are they tied to one location. Enterprises want to solve the problem of connecting users to their applications in a consistent and secure manner.

    The overarching issue is the connectivity between these two worlds as we're stuck in two-decades old technology. Enterprises are therefore challenged with the requirement to transform their infrastructure while integrating underlying legacy technologies, and for the user to access their applications while maintaining policy and security framework.

    Join our CEO as he discusses how IT infrastructure is being transformed during the era of cloud technologies, and how Enterprises across a number of industries can embrace the network revolution.

  • Coal beneficiation. Feedstock quality is key for power station performance
    Coal beneficiation. Feedstock quality is key for power station performance Dr Ian Reid Recorded: Apr 19 2017 30 mins
    This webinar examines technical developments in coal beneficiation covering dense-media and dry coal treatment, and upgrading various technologies.

    Amid a global trend to use low quality, inexpensive coal, it is now recognised that feedstock quality is a key element of a future power strategy to raise power station performance and meet environmental legislation. Preparing feedstock in order to remove inert matter and reduce contaminants can benefit every aspect of a coal plant operation. We examine technical developments in coal beneficiation covering dense-media and dry coal treatment, and upgrading technologies such as coal refining, digestion, oxidation, fuel blending and biomass substitution.

    Lignite or brown coal, the lowest quality coal, is normally used in its raw state resulting in significant energy and reliability penalties. Energy efficient technologies to reduce moisture and ash levels can significantly improve performance. As lignite demand declines in OECD countries, alternate markets are being sought that utilise synthesised humates.
  • How to Detect and Investigate Brute Force Attacks with AlienVault USM Anywhere
    How to Detect and Investigate Brute Force Attacks with AlienVault USM Anywhere Sacha Dawes, Principal Product Marketing Manager, AlienVault Recorded: Apr 18 2017 49 mins
    A brute force attack is one of the more common types of attack that malicious actors use to try and gain access to your IT servers, applications and data. In theory, a brute-force attack can be used to attempt to decrypt any encrypted data (except for data encrypted in an information-theoretically secure manner). These attacks are relatively simple for attackers to implement and they can wreak havoc on your organization when successful. However, many IT security teams may not be aware that they are at risk from these attacks, or what to do about them.

    Join us for a live demo where we'll demonstrate how the AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) approach, delivered as a SaaS solution with our USM Anywhere offering, can help you detect and investigate these types of attacks.

    You'll learn:

    - How attackers can use brute force attacks to gain access to your network
    - Steps you can take BEFORE an attack to identify systems or applications that may be at greater risk
    - How USM Anywhere can alert you immediately of brute force attacks targeting your cloud, hybrid cloud and on-premises environments
    - How to use USM Anywhere to investigate brute force attacks and identify compromised assets

    About the Presenter:
    Sacha Dawes is responsible for the technical marketing of the AlienVault Unified Security Management (USM) family of solutions. He brings multiple years of experience from product management, product marketing and business management roles at Microsoft, NetIQ, Gemalto and Schlumberger where he has delivered both SaaS-delivered and boxed-product solutions that address the IT security, identity and management space.

    Industrial Internet Security in Action --
    Interoperable IIoT Security Event Monitoring
    (Inlcuding a preview of security interop demo at Hannover Messe)

    With the rise of the Industrial Internet of Things and Industrie 4.0, manufacturers are adding more connected devices and sharing operation data with IT systems within their own factories and businesses, and they are extending information exchange across their entire value chain. This increased digitization offers a host of benefits to businesses, partners, suppliers and customers. But such connectivity must not itself put sensitive equipment at risk. Security is important within a single manufacturers’ plants, and across every participant in the value chain. Since there is no single, homogeneous security environment, multiple companies and systems that need to work together.

    JOIN THE WEBINAR TO LEARN:
    -How a strong Identity and Root-of-Trust forms the foundation of IoT Security

    -How to securely connect systems from the operational domain (OT), to become more accessible to the information technology (IT) domain.

    -How to implement end-to-end security from device to cloud

    -How 24 IIC Members will demonstrate secure, interoperable IIoT event monitoring at Hannover Messe

  • Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech
    Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech Luciana Carvalho, VR Evangelist Apr 25 2017 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Humans have shared gathered around and communicated through stories throughout history. Text, pictures, images and videos have sought to capture our imagination, or portray the non-fictional in a relatable way. Now, as we move beyond the 2D flat screen to new ways of interacting/communicating with the world — virtual and augmented reality, for example — we begin to see the power of immersion in storytelling, and the impact it has, beyond anything we have ever seen, on those in the receiving end. Arguably, the ultimate empathy machine.

    As we shape the next 'Information Age', and given the state of the world today, never before have we been in more need of putting ourselves in other people’s shoes, and empowering diverse and inclusive voices worldwide. Never before have we seen more women jump at the opportunity to lead and make content that is all-encompassing, that touches and inspires, and that aims to build bridges not walls. Here is their story.

    Learner, maker, systems thinker, innovator and tech evangelist, Luciana splits her time between growing the Realities Centre London — a new innovation space, incubator and academy for B2B/enterprise VR, AR, MR and AI — and Unfold UK, promoting women/diversity in future in the UK. Passionate about VR and tech for good, she carries ongoing research on the possibilities and challenges immersive tech presents as re neuroscience, empathy and female empowerment.

    She was elected one of Code First Girls ‘25 Ones to Watch’, 'Top 5 Female Role Models in the Tech Industry', and Virtual Perceptions' 'Heroes of VR' in 2016.

    Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom? Monique J. Morrow, CTO, Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder, Humanized Internet Apr 25 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A mixed-reality world driven by intelligent systems would have to be observing behavior and sensing physical phenomena continuously in order to provide individuals with appropriate content. Is that a sensible trade-off or a dance with the devil?

    Does the sensing possible with these technologies allow for ways to level the playing field or does it exacerbate existing power inequities? If the AI-enabled world of the future is monetized with personal data, then surveillance might well be baked into the system, but the ethical issues we see today will only be amplified in an immersive environment.

    Join this discussion with Monique Morrow, CTO & Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, for an in-depth look at what a true MR/AR/VR world means.

In comparison we can ask ourselves: 'how much would I pay and what kind of mobile phone would I buy if it would not allow me to have video calls or take pictures and share them live on my social networks'?

    EF EVE™ is a live holographic streaming engine which is changing the industry by bringing real time 3D VR/AR experiences. Just imagine putting on your VR/AR glasses and in a split second traveling miles to visit your friend in New York or standing next to Ed Sheeran during his performance in Brazil.

    Lets have a live demo of EF EVE™, and discuss the future of live 3D events for VR/AR.

  • Why AR/VR Will Disrupt Productivity and Collaboration in the Enterprise
    Why AR/VR Will Disrupt Productivity and Collaboration in the Enterprise John Nall, CEO, Appzion Apr 26 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Enterprise is the best starting or entry point for AR and VR because the pain points are high, the dollars are there to make a strong ROI case for use, and the wearable form factor is much less of an issue. AR and VR technologies will be instrumental in closing the skill gap that is responsible for the shortage of skilled manufacturing workers. We are optimistic that industrial productivity will grow and that this will ultimately translate into higher wages because AR and VR will allow more workers to do high-skill jobs, and improve their performance.
