IT practitioners today need an agile infrastructure to help promote innovation, manage costs, and mitigate risk.

CIO Roundtable: Role of AIOps in IT Operations to Advance Corporate Sustainability (June 22nd)
Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
Large and mid-sized enterprises are directly tied to one of the fastest growing drivers of corporate energy consumption: data centers and cloud resources. According to the International Energy Agency, data centers worldwide account for 1% of global electricity demand. This number will continue to rise as over the past decade, data energy consumption has grown 30% per year.

As a result, a broad range of stakeholders, including investors, regulators, senior corporate executives and more are looking to IT departments to reverse this trend. One of the most immediate and impactful methods is to achieve an environment of operational excellence where IT uses less energy.

IDC: CIO Roundtable: Power Boost - How to Upgrade Power of Today's Infrastructure (June 28th)
Tuesday, June 28th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
As enterprises undertake digital transformation with the goal of delivering improved customer experiences, cloud environments have increasingly come into focus as a key aspect of the IT infrastructure. But the reality of migrating to a cloud or even hybrid strategy has hit organizations with unexpected new challenges, including exploding costs, challenges in data management, and compliance risks. And even for those with a robust on-premises IT infrastructure, enterprises must look to keep their infrastructure up to date to achieve greater performance, stronger security, and compliance across their expanding workloads.

IDC: Achieving Enterprise Network Modernization with a Cloud-Inspired Software (June 28th)
Tuesday, June 28th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
Leading enterprises increasingly find that modernization of datacenter infrastructure is essential to the realization of their digital transformation goals. Nowhere in the datacenter is that modernization more necessary than in relation to the network. Traditional vertically integrated switches - with their closed architectures, lack of open APIs, and dependence on manual configuration and management - often impede enterprise efforts to make infrastructure as agile and flexible as that of the public cloud. Fortunately, the rise of network disaggregation, including Linux as a network operating system (NOS), offers encouragement to enterprises seeking to drive a more optimized, predictable TCO across their network.

CIO: Mainframe Application Modernization Initiatives in Support of Successful Transformation (July 26th)
Tuesday, July 26th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
In a 2021 IDC study that analyzed 446 businesses across the globe to measure the efficacy of migrating to cloud versus modernizing existing investments in mainframe systems and applications, the case for the latter won the day.

The study found that businesses that leverage their investments on the mainframe, while developing a modernization roadmap have an overall better outcome -- quantitatively and qualitatively -- than those that move off them. Replatforming, the researchers found, can be riskier and more costly than modernizing existing investments.

Join CIO contributing editor Lane Cooper and subject-matter experts from our sponsor, IBM, for a private, hour-long, interactive, virtual roundtable.

IT - CxO Security Events
DARKReading: Implementing Zero Trust in Your Enterprise (June 21)
Tuesday, June 21st, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
Attackers have shown time and again that perimeter security is no longer enough to keep them out. The concept of internal users and outsiders doesn't work in network defense when attackers use credential theft and lateral movement to pretend they are legitimate internal users. The zero-trust model - trust nothing, verify everything - sounds straightforward, but it can be a challenge to deploy.

Attend this webinar and you'll:

  • Formulate a practical checklist of how (and where) to start with implementing zero trust in your organization.
  • Anticipate potential pitfalls with zero-trust deployment and and be able to nimbly sidestep them.
  • Be better equipped to reduce your overall risk and make a big dent in your volume of false-positives.
  • Improve the overall threat posture of your organization as well as its data, applications, and end-users.

InformationWeek: To Pay or Not to Pay? Solving for the Ransomware Risk Equation (June 22nd)
Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
You don't want to pay a ransomware attacker. You can't afford to pay a ransom, but can you afford NOT to pay it? CIOs ask themselves this question every day, and they rarely know the answer. Precious time is wasted while they try to determine the extent of the damage, the value of the data/assets impacted, the quality of backup systems, the opportunity costs of downtime, and more.

Attend this webinar, and you'll:

  • Dissect the experiences of other organizations victimized by ransomware to see how paying ransoms did or did not help.
  • Gain knowledge of new, sinister ransom requests, which ask for assets far more valuable than money.
  • Learn how to better assess all of these risks to protect your business from the impacts of this ransomware attack (and the next).

DARKReading: Vendors as Your Largest Business Email Compromise (BEC) Threat (June 22nd)
Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022: 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM EDT

The tactics that worked for your business five years ago likely aren't still working today, and cybercrime is no different. The CEO fraud that dominated the last few years is not nearly as successful as it used to be, partially because employees understand that their CEO isn't emailing them about gift cards at 2:00 in the morning.

Not to be outdone, cybercriminals have shifted their tactics, now relying more on vendor impersonation and vendor email compromise to run their scams. The average invoice fraud attack costs $183,000 and Abnormal has seen attacks that request upwards of $2.1 million. Attend this webinar to make sure you're prepared to defend against them.

Security Boulevard: AI and ML in Security (June 27th)
Monday, June 27th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
When artificial intelligence (AI) first arrived on the cybersecurity scene, there was understandably a lot of skepticism. Grandiose claims about the ability of AI platforms to eliminate the need for security analysts have given way to more rational assertions that focus on the role machine learning algorithms will play in augmenting the skills-and easing the strain on-cybersecurity professionals. The conversation has evolved as understanding has grown about what AI and machine learning can and cannot do in a cybersecurity context. Now, it isn't so much about whether AI will replace cybersecurity professionals as it is about how quickly AI models based on machine learning algorithms can be applied to help thwart attacks.
