DevOps: Observability (March 6th)
Monday, March 6th, 2023: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST
Most DevOps teams today have been able to achieve some level of continuous monitoring using a set of pre-configured metrics that are relatively easy to track. Observability, however, takes monitoring to the next level by making it simpler to discover the root cause of IT issues before services are disrupted. There is no shortage of observability platforms today; the challenge is determining the best practices that should be put in place to employ them most effectively.

CIO: Cloud Governance for Visibility and Full Optimization, Compliance, and Security (March 21st)
Tuesday, March 21st, 2023: 3:00 PM tp 4:00 PM EST
cloud governance should happen before an organization starts its journey to the cloud. All too often, the board, IT leaders, and business partners turn their attention to cloud governance later, as a result of too-high costs or a compliance lapse. Cloud governance provides the confidence that a company's cloud platform is fully optimized, compliant, secure, well architected, and monitored in real-time. Cloud governance, done correctly, can help the enterprise - as well as its partners, employees, and customers - operate their systems with a high degree of confidence.

SNIA: Cyberstorage and XDR: Threat Detection through a Storage Lens (April 4th)
Tuesday, April 4th, 2023: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST
Enter "Cyberstorage", a term coined by Gartner, which is defined as doing threat detection and response in storage software or hardware. A parallel, related trend in the security industry is eXtended Detection and Response (XDR) which shifts some of the threat detection from centralized security monitoring tools (SIEMs) down into each domain (e.g., endpoint, network) for faster detection and automated response. Factor in the growing impact of ransomware and all these forces are driving the need to find creative, new ways to detect malware, including from inside the storage domain.

In this session we'll discuss:

  • Cyberstorage and XDR - what are these emerging trends?
  • Threat detection and response methods through a storage lens
  • Possible approaches for detection when used in conjunction with security tooling
  • Why silos between security and storage need to be addressed for successful threat detection
