    Steve Drew and Joost De Geus
    Over the last ten years, IT has stood at the epicenter of dramatic changes, as the cloud has forced businesses to rethink how they can best serve their customers and employees.

    Many IT organisations have gone all-in with a ‘cloud first’ policy to align more closely with the needs of their business customers. However, the journey to cloud is not a simple one. It requires a fundamental change in enterprise architecture, service contracts, internal processes and – most of all – culture and skills.

    Join cloud specialists from Rackspace, AWS and CloudHealth for this live webinar and hear first-hand insights into these challenges from The Cloud Governance Playbook 2020, including:

    •Common challenges encountered with cloud migrations
    •Performance optimisation in a multi-cloud world

  • Safe & Sound: Managed Cloud Security Recorded: Apr 24 2020 60 mins
    Maik Ellerbrock, Solution Architect
    Jahr für Jahr vervielfachen sich die Cyberattacken und dabei gehen die Angreifer immer versierter vor. Es ist und bleibt ein unendliches Katz- und Maus-Spiel zwischen Security Experten und Kriminellen.

    Allein im Jahr 2019 betrugen die durchschnittlichen Kosten für einen Security Breach 3,9 Millionen Dollar. Dazu kommt, dass sich in Europa, speziell beim Verlust von personenbezogen Daten, die Gesetzeslage stark verschärft hat. Oft heißt es daher nicht mehr "Können wir es uns leisten in Sicherheit zu investieren", sondern "Können wir es uns leisten, es nicht zu tun?“.

    Solutions Architect Maik Ellerbrock (Rackspace Germany) führt Sie in diesen Webinar durch folgende Punkte:

    -Vorgehensweisen der Angreifer
    -Cloud Native Security
    -Hybrid-Cloud Security
    -Shared Security Model
    -Rackspace Security Lösungen
