  • If your organization is reliant on a rapidly aging version of SQL Server, you need to join SQL Server experts Michael McCracken from HOSTING and Rodney Landrum, a Microsoft SQL Server MVP, from Ntirety for this in-depth discussion of the hows, whys and whats of upgrading from Microsoft SQL Server 200X to SQL Server 2014.

    •Considerations to understand
    •How to smooth the transition
    •Q & A
  • Ingesting raw data into Hadoop is easy, but extracting business value leveraging exploration tools is not. Hadoop is a file system without a data model, data quality, or data governance, making it difficult to find, understand and govern data.

    In this webinar, Tony Baer, Principal Analyst of Ovum Research, will address the gaps and offer best practices in the end-to-end process of discovering, wrangling, and governing data in a data lake. Tony Baer will be followed by Oliver Claude who will explain how Waterline Data Inventory automates the discovery of technical, business, and compliance metadata, and provides a solution to find, understand, and govern data.

    Attend this webinar if you are:
    --A big data architect who wants to inventory all data assets at the field level automatically while providing secure self-service to business users
    --A data engineer or data scientist who wants to accelerate data prep by finding and understanding the best suited and most trusted data
    --A Chief Data Officer or data steward who wants to be able to audit data lineage, protect sensitive data, and identify compliance issues
  • Targeted malware, zero-day vulnerabilities and advanced persistent threats are increasingly responsible for data breaches. Why? Because they work. Most security products have a hard time protecting from advanced malware. This problem is compounded because attackers can easily mass produce new malware variants. What’s an IT person to do?

    Join us to learn key techniques to stop modern malware the first time. We will discuss:
    •What tactics work
    •Where to apply them
    •How to optimize cost, staffing and security.
  • Software defined architectures are all the buzz, helping to start conversations about transforming customer data centers from cost centers into competitive advantages. But in today’s economy, no business can afford to stand still. And a business is only as agile as its IT organization allows. An agile data center and IT department can:

    •Protect the infrastructure and easily recover if faults are found or predicted
    •Control access to data while meeting compliance and regulatory requirements
    •Deliver services quickly, resiliently, and cost-effectively

    Join us on at 10am GMT on 16th April 2015 and learn how Symantec’s view of the “Agile Data Center” covers delivering the right resources in the right way to the users. Whilst bringing a broader view on how you can introduce critical solutions and new revenues around disruptive customer events.
  • For years ClearCase was the standard for enterprise SCM. If you had a large number of developers and lots of projects ClearCase was a great choice, while ClearCase MultiSite provided basic support for distributed teams. Now industry trends are converging toward a new generation of development tools and processes. Today, continuous delivery brings agile development and DevOps together, promising much shorter development cycles and higher quality.

    Learn how moving from ClearCase to Subversion can improve your development processes and significantly reduce deployment cost and complexity. You'll also learn practical ClearCase to Subversion migration techniques.

    Topics Covered:
    • Differences and similarities between Subversion and ClearCase
    • How to merge in Subversion
    • Continuous delivery using Subversion: bringing agile and DevOps together for faster delivery and higher quality
    • ClearCase vs. Subversion in a distributed development environment
    • Migrating from ClearCase to Subversion
  • Recently cyber attacks against Industrial Control Systems (ICS) used by
    utilities and other Critical Infrastructure organizations have hit the
    newlines worldwide. Stuxnet is the best known cyber attack against an
    industrial installation, but it's not the only one.

    But what if cyber attacks were not the biggest threat to industrial
    networks and systems? Although malware is still a major point of
    interest, the sword of Damocles for critical industrial networks is
    represented by system misuse performed by disgruntled employees,
    contractors and vendors, as well as unintentional mistakes,
    network and system misconfiguration; all this could lead to the
    divergence or failure of critical processes.

    In this talk we will reshape the concept of ICS cyber security and will present our vision for a comprehensive approach to cyber security for ICS.
  • Adhering to international maritime sanctions requirements can be challenging in today’s regulatory landscape. Join Dow Jones Risk & Compliance and experts from HFW and Pole Star for a discussion on best practice in shipping compliance. Learn about regulatory developments -- including the latest UN Security Council communiques on "Sanctions compliance for the maritime transportation sector" -- and leverage case studies on the use of enhanced sanctions data and monitoring tools to mitigate sanctions risk.
  • As superfast connectivity becomes widely available, it will increase both data volume and velocity as well as new business opportunities. However, this dramatic leap forward will also result in new and potentially destructive activity online, which can affect an organisation’s defences both internally and within their supply chain. It has never been more important for businesses to assess and understand their critical infrastructure in an increasingly connected environment.

    During this webinar Steve Durbin, Managing Director of ISF Ltd, will discuss how businesses can update their resilience along with examining the role in securing the network boundary that investments in technology and third party provider programmes can play. This will necessarily include an assessment of cloud-based systems and the use of robust risk assessment methodologies.
  • An overview of how businesses can gain visibility into B2B transactions to speed decision-making, respond to changing customer and market demands, and optimize business processes.

    Brian Christensen, David Brand and Keith Keller, Protiviti
    Internal auditors play a vital role in their organization’s strategies and daily activities.

However, in today’s fast changing environment, plans change and the needs of the organization may evolve rapidly. Has your support of the organization kept pace with those changes? Should you make changes to your audit plan to ensure coverage of new risks? Also, do you know what new elements should be included in your 2014 plan?

  • Infusing Traditional Investigative Techniques into the Audit Recorded: Dec 17 2013 63 mins
    Scott Moritz, Managing Director, Protiviti and Pam Verick, Director, Protiviti
    Internal Auditors are often the first line of defense in a company’s fight against fraud and corruption. Indeed, Internal Auditors are often called upon to “pivot” when a routine internal audit unearths red flags that may be indicators of fraud, corruption or misconduct.
    This presentation is intended to provide internal auditors with:
    •Knowledge of investigative techniques
    •The ability to recognize fraud or corruption indicators
    •Tools to respond to red flags

  • Your Vulnerability Scanner is Lying to You (And What To Do About It) Recorded: Nov 6 2013 47 mins
    Adam Brand, Associate Director, Protiviti; Magen Hughes, Consultant, Protiviti
    Infosec is known for constantly telling IT to "patch your stuff" to prevent getting compromised. Scan reports with a bunch of red are kicked over the wall, and scary reports showing thousands of vulnerabilities are an all-to-frequent result of a vulnerability assessment. But these scan reports are often lying about the true severity of the vulnerabilities, which creates more work for everyone and leaves Infosec crying wolf more often than it should. In this talk, we take a closer look at the problem with vulnerability ratings and how to have IT fail less by having to patch less, while simultaneously being more secure.
