BWGStrategy: Myth Busting Cloud Database Stories (Dec. 1sth)
Thursday, December 1st, 2022: 12:00 PM to 1:00 EST
Migrating away from legacy databases can seem like a daunting undertaking. But it doesn't have to be. Today, 80% of IT leaders like you expect to increase their use of enterprise open source software for emerging technologies, including their DBMS. This trend coincides with increased migration from legacy databases and a greater appreciation for the power of open source databases in industries that were once skeptical of these projects.

Why is this? There are a myriad of reasons, each of which speaks to the demands of modernization and digital transformation sweeping organizations big and small. The more important question is 'why should this matter to you?'

SNIA: Journey to the Center of Massive Data: Digital Twins (Dec. 6th)
Tuesday, December 6th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST
Have you ever wondered how intelligent Industry 4.0 factories or smart cities of the future will process massive amounts of sensor and machine data? What you may not expect is a digital twin will most likely play a role. A digital twin is a virtual representation of an object, system or process that spans its lifecycle, is updated from real-time data, and uses simulation, machine learning and reasoning to help decision-making. Digital twins can be used to help answer what-if AI-analytics questions, yield insights on business objectives and make recommendations on how to control or improve outcomes.

This webinar will introduce digital twin usage in edge IoT applications, highlighting what is available today, what to expect in the next couple of years, and what the future holds. We will provide examples of how digital twin methods help capture virtual representation of real-world entities and processes, discussing:

  • What is driving the edge IoT need
  • Data analytics problems solved by digital twins
  • How digital twins are being used today, tomorrow and beyond
  • Use cases: adaptive agile factories, massive data generation across industries, and system of systems processes
  • Why this is a technology and trend that is here to stay

The pandemic accelerated cloud technology adoption to better support and streamline remote workers, but going to the cloud is not just a set-it-and-forget-it strategy for security.

In this webinar, you will learn how to stay on top of your organization's multiple online accounts across multiple cloud services, to properly configure cloud security controls for the best security posture, and how to manage, maintain, and adjust security across cloud services and assets.

Cybersecurity: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You (Nov. 22nd)
Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET
Despite these efforts, 30-40% of an organization's attack surface is unknown to an organization and hence, unsecured. Both Forrester and ESG note that comprehensive asset data is essential for vulnerability risk management, and a quality ASM solution should provide the necessary data to prioritize risks for effective remediation. With Xpanse, your organizations can finally have a better picture of your risks than your attackers. Security begins with knowing your risks and that is only possible with a complete view of your attack surface. Join us in this session to understand how your attack surface is changing and how you can protect yourself against evolving attackers.

In this briefing, you will learn about:

  • Protecting your organization against risks emerging from cloud complexity and unknown assets.
  • How asset management depends on frequency and cooperation.
  • How automation isn't just a benefit, it's a necessity.

Security Boulevard: Securing Open Source (Nov. 28th)
Monday, November 28th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET
There is increasing focus on the security of open source software in the wake of a series of high-profile breaches involving software supply chains. As most, if not all, applications developed today use some form of open source code, the concern is that a bad actor will contribute code loaded with malware to a widely-used project. Fortunately, the open source community and a broad coalition of vendors are now rallying to create the tools and processes needed to secure open source software.

InteropDIGITAL: Cyber Resilience in Uncertain Times (Dec. 1st)
Thursday, December 1st, 2022: 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Cautious organizations prepare for disasters with measures like cyber insurance and good backups. Yet, cyberattacks, climate change, a pandemic, and civic unrest are threatening business continuity, disaster recovery, and cyber resilience plans. Ransomware has become so costly that insurers are raising premiums or leaving the cyber market entirely. Backup data centers are at risk of damage from wildfires, floods, and heat waves.

Attend this FREE virtual event on December 1st and you'll learn:

  • How to assess the cyber risks of today
  • What role insurance should play in your resilience plan
  • How to craft an effective incident response plan
  • What new factors you should consider before investing in IT infrastructure
  • About the latest research and best practices for protecting your backups against ransomware
  • The latest thinking in incident response plans and what your 2023 plan should look like

Security Boulevard: Application Security (Dec. 5th)
Monday, December 5th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST
Virtual

Unfortunately, it's still early days as far as DevSecOps is concerned, so the impact this shift might have is, at best, limited, especially when you consider the level of security knowledge the average developer possesses. Cybersecurity professionals know in their bones that developers are the root cause of most of the issues they face daily. It's not that developers deliberately build and deploy vulnerable applications; rather, they simply don't know what to look for. By the time the application is scanned-usually a few days before it's supposed to be deployed-it's too late to do much more than make note of the security flaws that need to be addressed. Breaking that cycle will require cybersecurity teams to meaningfully engage developers much earlier in the application development life cycle.
