InformationWeek: Understanding Your IT Risk Management Ecosystem (Sept. 9th)
Thursday, September 9th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
To protect your business from calamity - especially when undergoing digital transformation - a risk management ecosystem is essential. How well do you understand your company's IT risk management ecosystem? For that matter, do you even have a risk management ecosystem? A risk management ecosystem is comprised of not only your own company's IT assets, but those of your supply chain partners, cloud service providers, and other third-party technology providers. It also includes your own workforce and its approach to addressing IT risk. To reduce or eliminate vulnerabilities and threats that can impact the integrity and availability of your company's data, it's imperative to understand the risk policies, mitigation processes and security technologies being used.

Join us for this informative webinar as we explore what it takes to create and maintain a proper IT risk management ecosystem. The health of your company depends on your knowledge and management of this important topic.

CIO: Do You Need a More Intelligent, Efficient, and Secure Network? (Sept. 13th)
Monday, September 13th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Over the past year-and-a-half, many organizations have begun looking for ways to improve user experiences - whether for internal workers or for their customers. For many, this means swapping out static, network-centric approaches to linking resources, workflows, and data throughout their infrastructure with more dynamic, secure models that operate, in part, with help from AI-driven insights.

From wired and wireless, the WAN, the data center and the cloud, it's less about protecting your network, and more about using the network to protect your business.

CSO: Leveraging Zero Trust to Understand & Mitigate Risk in Containerized Applications (Sep 13)
Monday, September 13th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
While businesses have ramped-up their digital transformation efforts, a side effect for many has been increased security risks across their enterprises. With recent high profile software supply chain breaches forcing businesses to turn-up scrutiny of their application security efforts and the collaboration between DevOps and Security, many are also embracing a zero trust approach. While the use of containerized apps offer a number of benefits, particularly in a zero trust model, they still run within a host operating system meaning the software risks can follow the code into the container.

Learn and network with IT executives on the security concerns inherent to DevOps, the risks associated with modernizing your applications and how organizations are addressing these cybersecurity risks.

AI Inference Workloads: Solving Challenges Beyond Training Models
Tuesday, September 14th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Online

In recent years, enterprise AI initiatives have made great strides in solving the challenges of training massive, distributed computational models. Data wrangling, experimentation management, GPU resource allocation...these challenges have spawned an ever-growing market of new tools and considerable investment. But despite all this, the ability to productize AI is still stunted in most enterprises.

In our survey of more than 200 data scientists and MLOps/IT experts, a majority of AI/ML models still aren't making it to production. AI/ML teams are now under pressure to optimize and manage AI inference workloads in production and deliver a return on investment.
