SNIA Storage Security Summit (May 11th)
Wednesday, May 11th, 2022: 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM EDT
Virtual

SNIA is pleased to announce the launch of the Storage Security Summit on Wednesday, May 11th 2022.

Data storage security focuses on protecting storage devices and the data assets, sensitive or otherwise, stored on them. The infrastructure today is diverse so those assets can be found on-premise, in external data centers, in the cloud, and on edge network devices and sensors.

These critical data assets are increasingly exposed to deliberate damage or deletion from cyber criminals but also unauthorized users or simple user errors. It's an area of critical importance to enterprises because the majority of cyber attacks are not designed to simply breach networks or servers, the purpose is to access the data.

Delegate registration is now open. Cost for the one-day virtual conference, including the live sessions, will be $50.00. An early bird registration rate of $30.00 is available until May 4th.

CIO: Leveraging an IT Consumption Model to Modernize Your Enterprise Data and Analytics (May 19th)
Thursday, May 19th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2 00 PM EDT
Data is at the heart of the most competitive and successful enterprises and is central to most organizations' digital transformation initiatives. But not all enterprises have the same access to their data nor manage it the same way. Some organizations focus on more easily accessible information in their data center, while others are trying to capitalize more fully on the growing volume of critical data found or stored at the edge. Regardless of approach, enterprises are looking to take a data-first approach to both generate better business and customer outcomes and to ensure information is secure, available, scalable and frictionless to deploy, manage, and access.

CIO: AI and the Future of the Workforce (May 25th)
Wednesday, May 25th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
According to Nidhi Srivastava, vice president and global head of the Google Business Unit at TCS, the potential impact on the future workforce is broad and dramatic as AI takes on much of the drudge work in offices, factories, and warehouse floors. Technological advancements in analytics and AI, mobility, new innovative operating models, and next-generation - as well as rising cybersecurity threats - are increasing the need for new skill sets to achieve business transformation objectives.

Indeed, three-quarters of jobs today have had more than 40% of their required skills change over the past few months and years. This convergence of trends suggests that static roles will no longer be an effective way for organizations to think about when building the future workplace.

HMG: Accelerate Time to Value with a Modern Data Integration Approach (May 25th)

As C-suite and line-of-business leaders look for new ways to grow the business in the post-Covid business recovery era, they need to find faster and better ways to turn data into value.

There are rich opportunities for companies to integrate customer data from different data sets (transactional, marketing, customer service) to help gain a deeper understanding of customers and their preferences and to help create 'hyper-personalized' next best offers for them.

In addition, as organizations accelerate their adoption of SaaS and cloud platforms, technology leaders are increasingly utilizing cloud-managed data integration tools and approaches to expedite results and lower their costs.

ITProToday: Five Unexpected Enemies of Your Data Center (May 26th)
Thursday, May 26th, 2022: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT
Every data center admin knows about the myriad of ways to take a data center down: fires, power and network equipment failures, and the activities of hackers and cyber criminals.

And many of those risks are already accounted for in data center design, site selection and redundant equipment. But the real nightmare fuel comes from data center outages caused by the weird stuff - things like electrostatic discharge, 'zinc whiskers' or even a local raccoon that has decided that your NOC is an excellent place to raise its growing family.

When you deal with incredibly complex buildings with unlimited points of failure, life gets messy. With outages causing financial losses, SLA breaches and customer churn, no data center operator can ignore the physical security of their fragile systems, even when things get freaky.

ITProToday: Why A Content Services Platform is Important to Protect and Secure Content (May 12th)
Thursday, May 12th, 2022: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT
Organizations have vast and growing volumes of content to manage, which has been made more difficult by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has accelerated the trend towards working from home on a long-term basis.

Protecting and securing content has never been more important as new regulations such as GDPR in Europe and CCPA in California place additional burdens on organizations to protect content, particularly that containing personally identifiable information (PII).

Failing to adequately protect content places risks on organizations including: falling foul of regulators and legislators; facing a loss of content due to employee actions; or being unaware of the presence of contentious content.
