About this talk

Join us to as we untangle the reality behind one of most intriguing outages in recent history. Even if you were in a cave and under a rock in the cave in the middle of nowhere, there is no doubt you would have heard about the Facebook outage. Almost SIX hours of NO Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp meant that a significant portion of humanity suddenly had a massive amount of time for their families. Jokes aside, the outage cost FB a lot. Conservative estimates put the loss at several billion US dollars, if not more. This is NOT a FB bashing webinar. The fact is this type of an outage does happen and can happen to any organisation. In addition a complete and catastrophic outage could mean the end of your business OR in the best case, a significant impact to your bottomline. Join Amar Singh and Dawid Kowalski, Senior Technical Technical Director, EMEA, FireMon, as they - Unpack what happened at FB, - Argue why the Facebook outage should be perceived as a “good outage” - Discuss tangible and tactical actions you can take to avoid the same fate.
