Agenda

Synopsis: This presentation is not for the faint of heart: the IT struggle is real. How do you determine which technologies to adopt? Are you leveraging the cloud and should you? How can you protect everything? IT changes are frenetically happening across every industry; how will you keep up? Your technology decisions today dictate your companies agility and future competitiveness. Come hear a few stories and learn what you should and shouldn’t be doing to ensure success.

Advising CIOs and business leaders for nearly 20 years, my knowledge culminates as an senior trusted advisor, empathic and focused on strategic customer outcomes. Paying it forward by mentoring future CIOs, current IT managers and IT professionals. Helping others see the bigger picture, understand ROI (especially time) and differentiate themselves by growing both professionally as well as personally.

Synopsis:

Learn why collaborative digital workplaces require a level of security not implemented by many organizations. Securing identities, data, source code, and other intellectual property is much more difficult because mobile, cloud, and IoT have radically changed the security perimeter.

As customer, partner and employee interactions move increasingly to digital channels, the availability and performance of websites and applications is critical. Join an Oracle Dyn expert as he unlocks the secrets of modern DNS for improving digital performance and resilience. The session will provide a high-level overview of DNS, a review of redundant DNS configurations, and an explanation of how this layer of your infrastructure has everything to do with resilience. From DDoS to DNS amplification and reflection attacks, it’s all covered including strategies to mitigate, opportunities to architect infrastructure resiliency, and tips for improving digital performance.

Sterling's Bio: Al Sterling is a Senior Sales Engineer at Oracle + Dyn. He has been in the commercial software space for over 30 years across a vast variety of technologies and platforms.

Synopsis:

Are you tired of fighting fires, spending countless time troubleshooting infrastructure, and having to deal with problems that come out of nowhere? What if artificial intelligence (AI) can watch over your infrastructure and predict and prevent problems before your business can be impacted? If that sounds good to you, then this is a webinar you can’t afford to miss. Learn how HPE InfoSight gets you out of the heat and eliminates disruptions and wasted time through cloud-based predictive analytics and machine learning. We’ll show you how HPE InfoSight is making infrastructure autonomous. Specifically, how it predicts and prevents issues across the infrastructure stack, makes infrastructure smarter and more reliable, and eliminates the guesswork in managing infrastructure.

Synopsis:

IT infrastructure is not only a significant investment in hardware and software, but it can come with hefty cost in training, management, and maintenance. Traditional IT infrastructure is a mix of different vendor solutions adding more complexity and cost than necessary. Find out how a simpler approach to infrastructure can streamline operations and lower infrastructure costs in a very real and dramatic way.

Seal's Bio: Coming soon...

Synopsis:

From insiders to sophisticated external attackers, the reality of cyber security today is that the threat is already inside. Legacy approaches to cyber security, which rely on knowledge of past attacks, are simply not sufficient to combat new, evolving attacks, and no human cyber analyst can watch so much or react quickly enough. A fundamentally new approach to cyber defense is needed to detect and respond to these threats that are already inside the network - before they turn into a full-blown crisis. Self-learning systems represent a fundamental step-change in automated cyber defense, are relied upon by organizations around the world, and can cover up to millions of devices. Based on machine learning and probabilistic mathematics, these new approaches to security can establish a highly accurate understanding of normal behavior by learning an organization’s ‘pattern of life,’. They can therefore spot abnormal activity as it emerges and even take precise, measured actions to automatically curb the threat. Discover why autonomous response and machine learning is the future of defense and how the ‘immune system’ approach to cyber security provides complete network visibility and the ability to prioritize threats in order to better allocate time and resources.

Glaser's Bio: Coming soon...

Synopsis:

This roundtable is for attendees for executives with VIP badges ONLY. Companies are using various titles for their IT Leaders. Some larger companies have split this role.

Synopsis:

As a security practitioner, how does it feel today? To me, it’s not a pretty picture. In fact, attackers have unlimited resources and unlimited number of tries to conduct the attacks. They only need one to succeed for it to be a win for the bad guys. We, as the good guys, have limited resources, time, and people, plus we need to know ALL of the ways in to protect our infrastructure and data. It’s clearly not a very fair equation. Cisco takes our best of breed products and integrates them into an architecture to share threat intelligence, event information, context and policy... they fit and work together in an architecture that can see a threat once and block it everywhere – to get out in front of attacks and close the security effectiveness gap.

Gasdia's Bio: Lloyd Gasdia has been in the IT industry for 15+ years and has been with Cisco since 2005 serving in multiple capacities.

Synopsis:

Are you challenged by managing and protecting ever-increasing amounts of data and how to do so at less cost? Deploying an effective backup storage solution requires deduplication but how you implement it will have a major impact on the cost and performance of your backup environment for the next three to five years. During this presentation, you'll learn what to look for in a hyper-converged secondary storage for backup solution to ensure you make the right choice to get the fastest backups for the shortest backup window, fastest restores, instant VM recoveries in seconds to minutes, a fixed length backup window even as data grows, and fast, reliable offsite disaster recovery.

Synopsis:

Up until now WiFi has focused on achieving higher speeds or PHY rates. Now the focus is on improved efficiency capacity, higher capacity, and reduced congestion. Simply put, 802.11ax is designed to improve the way WiFi works. Future networks will face an ever increasing demand to efficiently move more data from a very diverse range of devices whose bandwidth requirements range from extremely low to blinding fast. An increasing number of competing networks will generate massive amounts of interference, and with only a limited number of channels available, the 802.11 protocol as we know it today will be hopelessly overwhelmed. 802.11ax is designed to meet the needs by delivering higher capacity, reducing congestion, increasing battery life, and extending range. If you are interested in learning how 802.11ax will improve the way WiFi works, come to our presentation and learn about the next generation of WiFi.
