  • Everyone’s A Little Bit Hybrid Jul 19 2018 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Dan Pitman, Senior Solutions Architect, Alert Logic
    According to Forbes, hybrid cloud adoption grew 3x in the last year, increasing from 19% to 57% of organisations surveyed. This rapid growth of hybrid cloud also brings a challenge – how do you retrospectively ensure the security of on-premises infrastructure whilst focusing on cloud security? Especially in multi-cloud/multi-vendor environments, because few standards exist. With many businesses approaching hybrid cloud differently, there need to be some standards and common methodology to help businesses navigate this area.

    Highlights Include:
    - What does hybrid really mean?
    - Shared responsibility in hybrid environments
    - The security challenge on your cloud journey
    - Is selective sourcing a good approach and of what to be wary

    Join Dan Pitman, Alert Logic’s Senior Solutions Architect, as he takes you on a hybrid journey and guides on how to optimise your security scale on that journey.

  • Securing People HR's Critical Data in Time for GDPR Jul 16 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Daniel O'Neill, Director of Global Security, Rackspace
    People HR® helps companies manage their employees, which means handling high volumes of personal information – just the type of data criminals wants. They required support to protect critical customer data and reach an exceptional standard on compliance and security; a need emphasised with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    Given the sensitive nature of the data, People HR required effective security controls to be put in place to ensure adherence to regulatory requirements. Implementing new technologies can be costly and filling the cyber security skills gap has become increasingly difficult in today’s evolving threat landscape. The set and forget, controls-based strategy of the past will no longer adequately protect organisations against more sophisticated cyberattacks.

    In this session, Rackspace will discuss how the provision of proactive monitoring, intrusion detection and incident response in addition to data encryption enabled People HR to protect customer data and create clear policies around the data governance and protection regulation with an approach that is both platform agnostic and cloud-centric.
  • Visibility: The Key to Better Threat Detection Jul 16 2018 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Matt Selheimer, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, Alert Logic
    Networks, services, applications and data are under virtually constant siege from both automated and targeted attacks. Once compromises and data breaches are discovered, companies often learn that attackers have been camped out for months – conducting reconnaissance and spreading across the network to find the most valuable resources or data. Therefore, it is important for organisations to have effective threat detection and incident response systems in place to identify and address threats.


    Many organisations are also starting to realise that simply replying on blocking tools is not the right approach, it is the lack of visibility in most cases, that leads organisations missing the obvious signs of a cyber attack.


    Effective threat detection is continuously monitoring your cyber assets for advanced threats, alerting you to validated exploits, and rapidly investigating and responding to confirmed incidents.
