SNIA: Kubernetes is Everywhere - What About Cloud Native Storage? (July 19th)
Tuesday, July 19th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Organizations are adopting containers at an increasingly rapid rate. In fact, there are few organizations that haven't implemented containers in their environment today. DevOps expect a flexible, seamless development, deployment and orchestration experience. With platform agnostic capabilities and a stateless container design, Kubernetes streamlines these processes - and with the contribution of persistent, cloud native storage, stateful information becomes reality along with advanced storage capabilities including features such as snapshots, rollbacks, etc.

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.

When it comes to the technology industry, is there anything we can do to lower the carbon footprint and reach net-zero? That's why the Sustainable EnterpriseTechnology Council was formed. What is the Sustainable Enterprise Technology Council?

Founded by BWG Connect and World Wide Technology, the Sustainable Enterprise Technology Council (SETC) is an organization on a mission to promote sustainability and reduce the carbon footprint of the enterprise technology industry.

The SETC aims to be a collaborative organization, bringing in various voices from companies big and small, creating a community to participate in building initiatives. The SETC preliminary topics include more efficient computing, data center design and retrofitting, site selection, efficient cooling, managing carbon credits, and renewable energy.

DARKReading: Building and Maintaining an Effective Remote Access Strategy (Aug. 2nd)
Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM EDT
The COVID-19 pandemic transformed enterprises into remote workplaces overnight, forcing IT organizations to revamp their computing and networking strategies on the fly. Some of the changes were intended to be temporary, and some rules were adopted without thinking through all the implications. With businesses moving to permanent work-from-home and hybrid work models, enterprise IT teams need to rebuild their security strategies and switch off temporary rules and controls.

Attendees can expect to learn about:

  • Remote work policies that safeguard identity, access and user data.
  • Balancing user convenience against security policies that satisfy the "C" suite.
  • Password and account management that are speedy, efficient and secure.
  • Handling the increased workload that comes with keeping remote workers' data and devices secure.

(CS) AI Online Replay: Developing and Leading a Top ICS IR Team, w/Mark Bristow
Wednesday, July 20th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EDT

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.
