The New Cyber: Faster, Better, Cheaper

Government agencies face the need to augment traditional SIEM systems and to do so in a manner that is better, faster and cheaper than before. This need for SIEM augmentation is driven by three factors - threat, scale, and cost. In addition most agencies now realise that they want to be more independent from cloud and SIEM vendors, so having a way to bring on new analytic destinations, including modern SIEMs, is an emerging requirement.



Confluent enables you to bridge the gap between old-school SIEM solutions and next-gen offerings by consolidating, categorising and enriching event logs, network data and log data generated by all relevant data sources for the purpose of real-time monitoring and security forensics.



Join the Confluent team for this online talk in which you will learn:

1. The top enterprise SIEM challenges facing government agencies
2. The value of augmenting your SIEM with Confluent
3. An overview of the Confluent solution and how it works
4. Customer use cases and examples
5. An integration example with Splunk

  • Apache Kafka® Use Cases for Financial Services May 12 2021 9:15 am UTC 62 mins
    Tom Green, Senior Solutions Architect, Confluent.
    Traditional systems were designed in an era that predates large-scale distributed systems. These systems often lack the ability to scale to meet the needs of the modern data-driven organisation. Adding to this is the accumulation of technologies and the explosion of data which can result in complex point-to-point integrations where data becomes siloed or separated across the enterprise.



    The demand for fast results and decision making, have generated the need for real-time event streaming and processing of data adoption in financial institutions to be on the competitive edge. Apache Kafka and the Confluent Platform are designed to solve the problems associated with traditional systems and provide a modern, distributed architecture and Real-time Data streaming capability. In addition these technologies open up a range of use cases for Financial Services organisations, many of which will be explored in this talk. .



    By attending this talk you will develop a new understanding of:



    •How Apache Kafka enables a 360 view of the customer

    •How to provide a back bone for distribution of trade data

    •How Kafka and Confluent Platform enable you to meet regulatory requirements for trade information, payments, liquidity

    •How to overcome security concerns with SIEM

    •How to integrate mainframe data with event streaming and the cloud

    •How to reduce fraud with real-time fraud processing, fraud analytics and fraud notifications.

    •How to Develop and enhance microservices.
  • Apache Kafka Architectures and Fundamentals May 4 2021 9:00 am UTC 37 mins
    Henrik Janzon, Solutions Engineer
    Apache Kafka is a community distributed event streaming platform capable of handling trillions of events a day. Initially conceived as a messaging queue, Kafka is based on an abstraction of a distributed commit log. Since being created and open sourced by LinkedIn in 2011, Kafka has quickly evolved from messaging queue to a full-fledged event streaming platform.



    In this session Martijn Kieboom, Senior Solutions Engineer at Confluent, explains Apache Kafka’s internal design and architecture. by attending you will learn why companies like LinkedIn, ING, Dominos Pizza, Nordea, & Royal Bank of Canada are now sending trillions of messages per day to Apache Kafka. In addition you will come to understand the underlying design in Kafka that leads to such high throughput.



    This talk provides a comprehensive overview of Kafka architecture and internal functions, including:



    •Topics, partitions and segments
    •The commit log and streams
    •Brokers and broker replication
    •Producer basics
    •Consumers, consumer groups and offset
  • Journey to Event-driven Architecture Apr 28 2021 1:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    Naveen Nandan, Solutions Engineer, Confluent Asia Pacific
    The world is changing. New problems need to be solved. Companies now run global businesses that span the globe and hop between clouds, breaking down silos to create seamless applications that connect the organisation. There is a continuous state of change that organisations must manage and innovate with.

    Traditional architectures simply cannot meet the challenges of real time and extreme scale. Today, we are addressing these new, rising needs through microservices, IoT, cloud, machine learning and more. At some point it becomes obvious that we need to go back to basics, back to first principles of system design, and start again.

    The common element of all these new world problems is that they revolve around the notion of events. These events drive actions and reactions, and transform between different streams, splitting, merging and evolving like the pathways of your brain.

    To understand the importance of being event driven, we’ll examine why events have become so pivotal in our thinking today. We will then evaluate the qualities and how events have become a first-class concern for the modern organisation, as awareness of events underpins event-first thinking and design. In this discussion we we will examine:

    History of “events” – Why do they matter?
    -Adoption journey of the “event”
    -Considerations of the event-driven architecture
    -Transitioning to event-first thinking
    -Event-first versus event-command patterns for event-driven design
    -Event-command pattern
    -Benefits of the event-first approach

    Michael Roseman, SVP & Chief Architect, KeyBank
    In this rapidly changing environment, financial services firms must find innovative ways to grow revenues, fight fraud, and deliver great customer experiences over various digital channels. At the same time, they must meet continually evolving compliance standards around data residency, identity and access control, and risk management.

    KeyBank, the 18th largest bank in the US, was no exception. KeyBank felt the threat of disintermediation by market entrants, increased customer expectations, and pressure to innovate and deliver more real-time products and services. But none of this was easy—especially because their data was scattered across multiple legacy mainframes and trapped in ETL processes.

    Hear from KeyBank and how they are leveraging Confluent Platform and Google’s Business Application Platform (Google Cloud’s Anthos and Apigee) to drive ongoing digitization initiatives such as real-time fraud detection, lead management, and microservices.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to:

    Improve operational efficiency by adopting an event-driven architecture enterprise-wide backed by a Center of Excellence
    Bring new real-time products to market faster by moving away from a top-down, project-oriented approach

  • Confluent’s Premium Connector Spotlight: Oracle CDC Source Recorded: Apr 14 2021 32 mins
    Nathan Nam, Senior Product Manager, Connectors Nam, Senior Product Manager, Connectors
    One of the most common relational database systems needing to connect to Kafka is Oracle, which holds highly critical enterprise transaction workloads. While Oracle excels at storing data, it struggles to implement continuous real-time syncs to other data warehouses. Change Data Capture (CDC) seeks to solve this challenge by efficiently identifying and capturing data that has been added to, updated, or removed from Oracle relational tables. It then makes this change data available to the rest of the organization. Most enterprises seek to utilize this change data to enhance their real-time use cases, which requires bridging legacy systems to their modern data systems and applications through Kafka.

    However, sending Oracle CDC data to Kafka adds additional complexity for development teams, as few tools exist in the market today to address this need. Confluent’s new Oracle CDC Source Connector, the first of Confluent’s Premium Connectors, allows customers to reliably, and cost-effectively implement continuous real-time syncs by offloading data from Oracle Database to Confluent.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to:

    1. Jumpstart technical uses cases by leveraging a pre-built connector that has enterprises features and functionality ready out-of-the-box
    2. Reliably and quickly connect your Oracle database to Kafka and other modern data systems by leveraging 120+ pre-built connectors
    3. Quickly scale horizontally without taking on additional licensing costs with Oracle CDC Source Connector’s native Kafka connectivity

  • Confluent Real time event streaming - why it matters for Industry 4.0 Recorded: Mar 10 2021 47 mins
    James Gollan
    Companies now run global businesses that span the globe and hop between clouds in real-time, breaking down data silos to create seamless applications that connect the organisation internally and externally. This continuous state of change means that legacy architectures are insufficient or unsuitable to meet the needs of the modern organisation. Applications must be able to run 24×7 and be elastic, global, and cloud-native.

    Mining, resources, chemical, energy and industrial organisations must process billions of these events per day in real-time and ensure consistent and reliable data processing and correlation across machines, sensors and standard software.

    Enter event-driven architecture (EDA), a type of software architecture that ingests, processes, stores, and reacts to real-time data as it’s being generated, opening new capabilities in the way businesses run.

    Real-time streaming data enables you to modernise existing processes, streamline costs and extract more value out of your business data.

    Join us on Wednesday, March 10th 2pm AEST to learn how event streaming with Apache Kafka, Confluent Platform and Confluent Cloud provide a scalable, reliable, and efficient infrastructure to ensure you can leverage the value of real time data.
