We live in the age of data. Organisations gather increasing quantities of data, but not everyone knows how to use it well.
Analytics can be worthless, counterproductive and even harmful when based on data that isn't high quality. It doesn't matter how fast or sophisticated the analytics capability, you won't be able to turn data into better decisions with poor data.
With a growing number of companies investing in analytic tools to visualise their data, there has never been a better time to look at the quality of your data.
Join Leopard Business Solutions, the data management experts and Yellowfin, a global analytics vendor as we discuss the way to making business decisions based on data you can trust.

The demand for business to be more agile and stay competitive is driving a change in the way applications are developed, deployed and adopted. The challenge has become balancing the agility needs of the business with improving the security of the applications and, more importantly, securing the data as it moves between the various clouds. Gaining visibility and preventing attacks attempting to gain access to the data, whether from an external location or through a lateral attack, becomes imperative in all locations where the applications and data reside, without adding additional cost or complexity. Organizations require visibility, control and prevention capabilities across any cloud environment, enabling consistent security policies and protection no matter where it is deployed.
This webinar will cover:
• Visibility: Consistent visibility across clouds is one of the most common issues with multi-cloud deployments.
• Threat prevention: Block known and unknown threats is a critical requirement to protect applications and data no matter where they reside.
• Automation: The ability to natively integrate into a variety of environments to match the dynamic and on demand nature of cloud services.
• Centralized management: Manage your virtualized and physical firewalls from a single management console, delivering consistent policy and features across all clouds.

Organisations are transitioning more of their data and infrastructure into the cloud. Worldwide, the public cloud market is expected to grow 17.2% this year, topping $208.6 billion, according to recent research.
While many IT organisations may just assume that their service providers have backup, recovery and business continuity plans taken care of, that isn’t always the case. Couple that with recent poll results that found 36 percent of IT execs said the loss of data in the cloud would be worse than their data centre crashing and the 14 percent who said such a crash would cost them their jobs and it’s clear that there’s work to be done.
Hear more about why you can’t cede control of your backup and business continuity plans to your cloud provider -- and why doing so could put your data at risk. In this webinar you will also learn:
· What cloud providers are actually responsible for in terms of backup and recovery
· How an SLA doesn’t always mean you are protected
· Why your overall business continuity strategy must embrace the cloud
· Where the most common issues happen and how to prevent them

Cyber-attacks can originate from anywhere, but there appears to be an unabated trend of pointing the finger on either "sophisticated attackers" or, more blatantly, naming and blaming nation-states like Russia, China and now North Korea (alright, maybe even Iran).
The truth about attribution (who is the attacker) is often overlooked for something more dramatic, especially in situations where sensitive information or brand reputation is at risk.
The tactic is simple. Switch the focus from internal bad practices and shift the blame to “sophisticated, nation states and or criminal gangs.” Lazy, but effective.
Join Amar Singh and Joseph Carson, from Thycotic, as they both discuss the real reason behind why cyber attacks succeed (no - not because of Russia or China)and the steps you can take to make the job of hackers, both sophisticated and otherwise, much harder.
