Auto-takedowns: The Essential Tool for Modern Security
Thursday, June 24th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Security teams continue to wrestle with a range of external threats affecting customers, employees and supply chains. From classic phishing attacks, to business email compromise, the threat landscape is broad and fast moving. The sites sourcing the attacks need to be taken down, and fast. But how?

For many security teams it's a thorny, persistent problem: how do you find these malicious sites, and how do you go about taking them down for good, without sapping time from your team.

Join CSO Contributing Editor Aaron Goldberg, CSO and Jeff Baher, Head of Product Marketing and Shashi Prakash, CTO/co-founder from Bolster, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable focused on auto-takedowns - a mechanism entailing sub-second fraud and scam detection combined with a fully-automated takedown process all in less than 3 minutes.

Hosted by CSO and Bolster

CIO: What CSPs Must Do to Deliver a Better Technical Partnership for Technology Companies (June 22nd)
Tuesday, June 22nd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Many technology providers drive substantial benefits from leveraging foundational or complementary technologies from their cloud service provider (CSP). In many cases, this leverage is necessary to bring a completed solution to the market in a timely and competitive fashion. As the technology landscape has changed, and there is a need to create solutions differently, what a CSP must provide needs to evolve.

Join CIO contributing editor Aaron Goldberg, and subject-matter experts from our roundtable sponsor, IBM, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable. We'll discuss and share ideas about what the most important new technology, platform, and foundational components should be, how they should be delivered, and what is next.

Hosted by CIO

Tintri: Unified Storage for Enterprise AI (June 24th)
Thursday, June 24th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Until recently, data-intensive analytic workloads were mostly the domain of large-scale research and educational institutions. However, many commercial enterprises are now adopting these AI-driven workloads to enhance the value of their business data. The proliferation of data and the need for intelligent, real-time analytics in the enterprise is driving the demand for scalable, high-performance storage optimized for AI workloads. Although file-based workloads are at the heart of much AI-led innovation, the optimal storage infrastructure should handle these emerging file-based AI and ML apps along with existing block- and file-based enterprise workloads in a single unified storage solution.

Hosted by Tintri and DCIG

CSO: Building Functional Security into DevOps (June 28th)
Monday, June 28th, 2021: 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
While many organizations expect DevSecOps to solve their application security challenges, this won't happen on its own. DevSecOps isn't a product, it's both a process and culture of bringing security teams together with developers and operations to reduce communication barriers and improve velocity in a secure way. Protecting the developer pipeline, and then securing the enterprise's applications - wherever they are - is a growing priority.

Hosted by CSO, Cyberarck, PWC

(CS)2AI Online: ICS CyberSec- Build It in or Bolt it On? with SAP Lab
Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
online

Very few organizations have the opportunity to create a cybersecurity program from the ground up. Often, cybersecurity programs in the OT/ICS environment start out as rough translations of the IT program into the OT/ICS environment or initiatives resulting from an audit or incident. Assessing the as-is state of an organization's security posture is usually a combination of a maturity level assessment of their cybersecurity program along with a technical assessment of their implementation.

Crossing the AI Valley: Deploying and Monitoring Models in Production at Scale
Thursday, June 24th, 2021: 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
online

It's happened again. You built another AI model that will never see the light of day because it won't make it past the AI 'valley of death' - the crossover of model development to model deployment across your enterprise. The handoff between data science and engineering teams is fraught with friction, outstanding questions around governance and accountability, and who is responsible for different parts of the pipeline and process.

Even worse? The patchwork approach when building an AI pipeline leaves many organizations open to risks because of a lack of a holistic approach to security and monitoring.

Join us to learn about approaches and solutions for configuring a ModelOps pipeline that's right for your organization. You'll discover why it's never too early to plan for operationalization of models, regardless of whether your organization has 1, 10, 100, or 1,000 models in production.

How to launch and build a career based on skills and passion with Ben Legg
Tuesday, June 29th, 2021: 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Did you always wonder how to create a career you love based on your skills and passions? A portfolio career might be the way to go.

A portfolio career involves monetising your skills in many ways and having multiple income sources, rather than a single job at one company.

In the past this type of career was mostly dominated by senior executives, with former CEOs sitting on various boards, writing books, making speeches, etc.

Nowadays a portfolio career is available to almost anybody with skills that are in demand (plus decent wifi).
