Think Tank

Digital Evolution: Why Mindset Matters
Technology is always evolving, creating new threat vectors and a constantly changing risk environment. This constant change increases stress on security practitioners at all levels but especially senior leadership. CISOs and CIOs turn over regularly as a result and our average time with a company continues to decrease. We have to take on a growth mindset to manage our stress, grow our confidence, and decrease our turnover to have a real impact on our organizations.

Ransomware vs Immutability - Securing your last line of defense against data loss

Corporate data is under attack. Ransomware is now a multi-billion dollar industry with no signs of slowing down. Just watching the evening news, it is clear that organizations are not ready for this new reality and often times, just paying the ransom is faster and cheaper than trying to recover in house, if that's even an option. 

With security teams now being mandated to come up with solutions to this problem, the industry is being flooded with tools and technologies that claim to be immutable. But what does that mean, how does that work, and is it enough?

During this session, we will talk about what truly immutable data looks like, how a secure architecture for data is built, and what needs to be done to make sure your last line of defense against data loss is always ready when, not if, it is called upon.
