  • Cloud Transformation: Security in the Age of Digital Disruption
    Cloud Transformation: Security in the Age of Digital Disruption Gary Marsden, Senior Director of Data Protection Services at Gemalto Live 60 mins
    While the technological and commercial advances of the cloud have created significant opportunities for enterprises, service providers and IT vendors alike, this cloud-driven transformation has also undone conventional approaches to data security and created compliance challenges when it comes to data control and ownership.

    These changes have unwittingly drawn us into a realm of increasing threat vectors, poor security practices and bad actors. From reducing cost of ownership to empowering IT decision making across the value chain, it is safe to say that the cloud means that life will never be the same for anyone.

    During this webinar we will:
    - Look at the challenges facing today's IT and security teams;
    - See how this wave of disruption can be overcome using ever advancing automation, processing and intelligence technologies that can be used to build and deliver security an increasingly diverse IT landscape; and
    - Look at how security will need to evolve in the wake of digital transformation.
  • How to achieve better work-life balance
    How to achieve better work-life balance Mira Rutter, Work-Life Balance Coach and Strategist Live 60 mins
    In our hectic modern lives, we often get pulled from pillar to post, drown in detail, more is expected from us and we demand more of ourselves. As a result, we rarely get off the hamster wheel and pause to think about what it is we really want, and why.

    Spending time to reflect on what is truly important to us and what we really want in life gives us focus and direction on how to spend our time and energy. Having a plan of action and taking regular steps toward achieving what we want means we are far more likely to get there than if we were just wishing for it.

    In this webinar, Mira Rutter, a Work-Life Balance Coach and Strategist will share with you practical tips on what you can do to achieve more balance in your life by focusing on what’s important to you and freeing up time and energy for what truly matters to you.

    Key takeaways:

    - What is work-life balance to you and how to bring more balance into your life
    - The two essential pillars to leading a well-rounded and fulfilling life
    - Common productivity misconceptions
    - Strategies for freeing up time & energy for what’s important to you
    - How to structure your days & weeks for optimal results
  • Securitized Credit: A Timely Fixed Income Credit Alternative
    Securitized Credit: A Timely Fixed Income Credit Alternative Jeff Williams, Fund Manager, Securitized Credit Team, Schroders Recorded: Oct 16 2018 60 mins
    As investors contemplate the lower return environment, the potential for rising interest rates and rich valuations, many rely on traditional fixed-income credit strategies, or leveraged loans, as a way to generate return or income. These markets have become crowded, and the crowds pushing into risk by the global liquidity glut are, in our view, concernedly complacent.
    Now is the time to avoid these very crowded parts of the market through an alternative that’s been here in place sight all along - Securitized Credit. In this webcast we will explore the broad range of alternatives, from defensive to opportunistic, that can be found in Securitized Credit and lending. We will also demonstrate how these traditional credit replacements can consist of a hybrid of private debt and public securities to provide an attractive return profile, and offer better diversification with the most commonly held portfolio allocations.

  • Artificial Intelligence & Behavioral Biometrics: Improving Productivity
    Artificial Intelligence & Behavioral Biometrics: Improving Productivity Ehab Samy, VP Product Management, Plurilock Recorded: Oct 16 2018 32 mins
    Traditional security and authentication methods are designed to put up stumbling blocks for your employees, challenging them at several points throughout their workday to identify themselves. To do this they must enter, remember, and frequently change passwords, and in the expanding world of two- or multi-factor authentication the enterprise seeks greater security at the further expense of productivity. But traditional passwords and other authentication methods can be compromised, so the impact to your user processes does not always deliver proportional security.

    Artificial intelligence and biometrics can change the authentication game, supporting enhanced security by automatically identifying employee identity without impacting workflows and user processes.

  • Don't Be a Bystander, Be an Incident Commander
    Don't Be a Bystander, Be an Incident Commander Rachael Byrne, Data Enablement, PagerDuty Oct 16 2018 5:00 pm UTC 17 mins
    Many organizations have some kind of incident response process to coordinate during a major service outage. Some operationally mature companies incorporate a formal Incident Commander role in their process for a faster, more effective response. The Incident Commander serves as the final decision-maker during a major incident, delegating tasks and listening to input from subject matter experts in order to bring the incident to resolution. Whether or not a company has a formal process that includes an Incident Commander, most companies believe that your most senior engineer is best suited to lead an incident response. Rachael challenges this assumption.

    Rachael has learned first hand that successful Incident Commanders do not need to be highly technical, let alone senior, to effectively lead a coordinated response to a major incident. Comfort with a structured process and soft skills such as communication are actually more important than technical knowledge for an effective Incident Commander.

    All organizations need to maximize the number of people able to lead a major incident response to avoid burn-out of their most senior technical leaders and increase overall availability of their service. In this webinar, you’ll how to develop an inclusive incident response process that welcomes more Incident Commanders without compromising response effectiveness that they can immediately apply at their own organizations.

    Getting Ready for a Multi-cloud future with Containers and Kubernetes Ritesh Patel, Co-Founder & VP of Products at Nirmata Oct 16 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    For the last few years, there has been an ongoing debate about multi-cloud/hybrid cloud vs single cloud approach. However, there is increasing evidence that the future will be multi-cloud. Data from a recent survey released by Forrester Research indicates:

    62% of public cloud adopters are using 2+ unique cloud environments/platforms

    74% of enterprises describe their strategy as hybrid/multi-cloud today

    So, the question is what does this mean for your applications? Does adopting multi-cloud increase management complexity? How can you effectively control and manage spend?

    In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of a multi-cloud approach. We will see how containers are becoming a key building block for enabling application portability and how Kubernetes is becoming the toolbox across clouds. Finally, we will discuss real-world best practices for enabling multi-cloud deployments.
