    Moderator: Elisabeth Thomas | Panellists: Jeanne Morain, Simon Ratcliffe
    With Coronavirus having infected 785,000 people worldwide at the time of writing, many companies are enforcing a remote working rule to protect its workforce and minimize the threat of the virus. As such, there will be increased use of online conferencing tools and monitoring tools to remotely manage IT workloads and continue business as usual.

    Data center operators are taking steps to ensure continued operations, and also to provide mission-critical technology to support first responders, hospitals and public agencies reacting to COVID19’s impact.

    But how do data center operators ensure their digital infrastructure can handle this much use? Join this panel of experts as they discuss:

    - Preparing for the increase of hospitals’ use of data centers for data and image storage and transmission
    - Ensuring business as usual for companies’ sudden switch to a temporarily remote workforce
    - How to ensure your investments in maintaining continued operations during this period last beyond the threat of Coronavirus

  • IT Resilience in a World of Risk Recorded: Mar 11 2020 23 mins
    Steve Blow, Systems Engineering Manager UK, Zerto (interviewed by Simon Ratcliffe, Ensono)
    IT professionals are under tremendous pressure to ensure IT Resilience and that business technology services are protected and available 24/7, regardless of risk. Lost or corrupted data can cause the customer experience to suffer enormously and balloon into business liabilities.

    Having the right tools in place to simplify and deliver on IT resilience is therefore essential in today’s world of risk, whether planned or unplanned.

    Join this session to discover:
    - The biggest challenges that are overlooked when protecting your organizations from Ransomware
    - How to solve Ransomware recovery challenges
    - What is the level of complexity in installation and management of recovery
  • Surviving Ransomware Recorded: Mar 11 2020 51 mins
    Ensono | Zerto | Crisis Team | Cybersec Innovation Partners | Meta Defence Labs
    The estimated cost of ransomware for 2019 is $11.5bn, more than many global industries and markets. Think about that, the total cost of ransomware for this year will be more than many Fortune 1000 organizations make in revenue.

    The cost of ransomware isn’t simply the requested ransom, something most will recommend you don’t pay. It’s the cost of recovery, the cost of data loss, the loss in productivity, the intangible damage to your reputation and the most direct cost: a disruption of your services. With the prevalence and also ingenuity behind Ransomware attacks prevention isn’t the answer.

    Organizations have never had success stopping attacks. To survive, they need to build a strong internal security culture that mitigates risk. Surviving the accident is what’s important, not preventing it in the first place.

  • AI, Infrastructure and Cloud - is your Infrastructure AI-Ready? Recorded: Nov 19 2019 38 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, Technology Evangelist, Ensono
    Discover whether your infrastructure lacks support for AI, where these discrepancies lie, and where the cloud comes in.

    Artificial Intelligence is only as effective as the infrastructure on which it is built. Failing to provide that infrastructure can lead to catastrophic failure of an AI implementation. Building an effective AI infrastructure demands a strategic view of the storage, networking and data requirements of the AI platform. This webinar will examine the very specific requirements for an AI infrastructure, help determine where the gaps exist and make recommendations that can help your AI implementation succeed.

  • The IT Architect of the Future Recorded: Oct 17 2019 38 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor and Mentor, IT Evangelist
    The role of the architect has changed dramatically in the past few years and is headed for even more change as the landscape of possible technology options is only going to increase. Faced with a list of options that is increasing almost daily across a highly competitive landscape, many architectural decisions have become an exercise in avoiding error rather than exploring possibility.

    Whilst an acceptance of failure is becoming the norm in smaller development faced activities, architects must make big decisions that can affect the entire operation of an organisation. This webinar explores some ideas for architectural best practice and mechanisms for reducing risk whilst empowering architects to unleash some of the exciting new options available to them.

  • A Guide to Navigating Cost, Security and Risk in a Multi-Cloud Environment Recorded: Sep 12 2019 49 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor and Mentor, IT Evangelist
    The majority of organisations today are running their IT estate across multiple platforms including private clouds, on-premise data centres, software as a service, and public clouds. Whilst this flexibility can drive significant business benefit, there are a number of key areas of operations and governance that require a different approach. Many organisations have suffered from cost management challenges despite the claims of many cloud providers that their platform will create savings and so we will examine options for effective cost management that actually work – and the pitfalls to avoid!

    Cloud itself has a well-established security pedigree but managing security and risk across multiple clouds adds a layer of complexity that can lead to issues and so we will explore some of the key risks in such an environment and suggest how these can also be mitigated.
