Chris Hill, RVP, Public Cloud EMEA; Alex Hilton, Chief Executive, Cloud Industry Forum
Multi-Cloud or hybrid environments has become a growing strategy for many organisations moving their applications and data in the cloud as it gives organisations the ability to be flexible in what they need for their business. In fact, according to recent research by Computing, 26 per cent of enterprises surveyed were using a multi-cloud approach compared with 22 per cent last year. However, along with this approach one thing organisations should not forget is that the need for security does not diminish. As the cloud continues to offer more in services, organisations need to be aware of the protection they are responsible for to ensure their applications and workloads are safe.
So how do organisations stay ahead of the curve with security as well as being able to manage these multi-cloud or hybrid environments?
Join our latest webinar where, Chris Hill, VP Public Cloud EMEA at Barracuda, and Alex Hilton, Chief Executive and Cloud Industry Forum (CIF)will discuss the latest challenges when it comes to migrating to the cloud, especially in a multi-cloud environment as well as analyse CIFs latest research findings on what organisations need to consider when adopting these cloud services.

The term multi-cloud has caught on this year, and we’ll be discussing the reasons it could matter a great deal to your business. If you are a cloud user, a company providing services and solutions that use public cloud infrastructure, or currently defining a cloud strategy, we’ll discuss why being able to keep your cloud options open is so important. Scality is working hard to provide tools to help public and private cloud users keep control of their storage, permitting the use of the right cloud for the right job. We’ll be discussing the business implications of multi-cloud storage, the freedom that our Zenko technology allows. We’ll be joined by Nodeweaver who will share why multi-cloud is important to their business.

David Emm, Principal Security Researcher, Kaspersky Lab (Global Research & Analysis Team)
Targeted attacks are now an established part of the threat landscape and in 2017 the headlines were full of news about sophisticated attacks of all kinds. Some were highly-targeted, others affected many businesses and quickly reached epidemic proportions. Often the motive was clear - to gather data, to make money, to cause damage and disruption. But sometimes the lines between these became blurred.
It's clear that organisations of all kinds need to understand and prepare for cyber-threats affecting their sector. And this must start with an understanding of the current threat landscape and how it's likely to develop.
This presentation will outline the trends we're seeing and offer some predictions for 2018 and beyond - based on our analysis of attacks in 2017.

David joined Kaspersky Lab in 2004. He is a member of the company's Global Research and Analysis Team and has worked in the anti-malware industry since 1990 in a variety of roles, including that of Senior Technology Consultant at Dr Solomon's Software, and Systems Engineer and Product Manager at McAfee.
In his current role, David regularly delivers presentations on malware and other IT security threats at industry events, highlighting what organisations and consumers can do to stay safe online. He also provides comment to broadcast and print media on the ever-changing cyber-security and threat landscape. David has a strong interest in malware, ID theft and the human aspects of security, and is a knowledgeable advisor on all aspects of online security.

Simon Ratcliffe, Principal Consultant, Ensono, Kevin Stoodley, CTO, IBM Z Series, & Alex Hilton, CEO, CIF
A recent survey conducted by Ensono, in partnership with the Cloud Industry Forum, showed that 89% of respondents believed that legacy technology was a barrier to effective digital transformation. Given that many organisations operate a complex technology landscape often with elements in different locations, and with core components that are regarded as ‘legacy but critical’, there needs to be a clear and simple approach to overcoming these obstacles.
Breaking down the barriers requires effective change in people, process and technology to attain a viable level velocity that will enable transformation without being held back by perceptions of legacy issues.
Examining these issues, this webinar will provide insight and thought provoking approaches for organisations seeking to transform their operations against this backdrop.

Phil Maynard, Sr. Director, Technical Sales EMEA; Alex Hilton, CEO, Cloud Industry Forum
Many organizations within EMEA are beginning to host more of their business-critical applications and data in the Cloud. However, many of these organizations are not fully aware of the risks, so are not fully protecting their Cloud-based applications or data. In addition, the majority of organizations still rely on traditional on-prem focussed Backup solutions, many of which do not enable the cloud to be used efficiently, or cost effectively.
Join Phil Maynard, Sr. Director EMEA, Technical Sales at Barracuda and Alex Hilton, CEO at Cloud Industry Forum to discuss:
- Findings from Barracuda research on how companies are using Backup and Cloud in EMEA
- What’s preventing companies from moving their backups to the Cloud
- Why moving to Office 365 could break your data protection and IT security strategy
- Real life examples of how organisations have adopted a hybrid on-prem and Cloud Backup Strategy
To win the revenue battle you need to focus like a laser, not a spotlight. More and more businesses are reaping the benefits of orchestrated marketing campaigns to high-value clients. Less risk, bigger rewards but only if it's done properly. Our experts tell you how
Cloud has been on the top of everyone's mind for quite a while already. But is this a good thing? Cloud has many undeniable benefits, but if used inappropriately it could produce more harm than good. In this panel discussion our group of experts will analyse the good, the bad and the ugly of cloud.
Among questions covered will be:
- Why are businesses attracted by cloud?
- What cloud gives you that you can't get from any other infrastructure
- How does cloud help speed up legacy integration?
- How does devops support cloud computing?
- How does agile methodology support accountability in the cloud?
Antonio Piraino, Chief Technical Officer, ScienceLogic
With HyperScale Clouds reaching their eleventh year of operation, The Cloud is no longer a semi-autonomous shadow-IT playground, but rather the critical component of any Enterprise Transformation strategy. The fear of cloud failure is no longer the deterrent it once was, and modern strategies dictate a multi-cloud architecture allowing for optimized value and simultaneous risk mitigation. This webinar discusses why there is now widespread adoption of a multi-cloud strategy, and how it helps to achieve several business objectives; namely: optimized ROI, superior security, lower latency and higher throughput, greater autonomy, greater availability and resource optimization. Antonio will also dig into the most current emerging trends of the multi-cloud, including immutable infrastructure and the concurrent tools transformation accompanying this paradigm shift.
Four in ten planned technology purchases don’t happen. Buyers struggle to buy in the way they want to. The result? They choose not to purchase and that’s a lose-lose for buyer and supplier.
Buyers say they don’t feel they have been guided well enough for them to be confident in making a purchase. The ground simply isn’t solid enough.
Join Dr Lucy Green and Melanie Foster from Larato and our guest technology buyer to learn what buyers want their technology suppliers to do to help them buy. Want to secure more sales? This is the webinar to attend!
