The Connected Worker & the Enterprise of Things

The smartphone is the primary communication and computing device for many of today's consumers. This dependency on mobile devices will translate into a majority of enterprise computing outside of traditional PC computing. This will have the greatest impact with on campus (non-officebased) and off campus mobile workers who are becoming increasingly connected by rich real time communications powered by mobile applications running on wearable devices such as smart glasses. The rise of IoT in the enterprise, or the Enterprise of Things, will allow these workers to instantly connect with assets in the field to gain immediate understanding of the situation around them. 

This session will explore the impact that these connected workers and endpoints will have on your enterprise and its ability to drive growth. Attendees will also learn security concerns that come with these new tools and how to best address them.

Digital Transformation of Data and Analytics platforms with Microservices and Containers

"Data Fabric" has been a hot topic within companies who are going through a digital transformation. Next generation software development techniques such as microservices and containers have influenced how enterprises need to modernize their Data and Analytics (D&A) Platforms. Because of the distributed nature of microservices applications, data collection and analysis should be re-structured. During this session, we will discuss how to approach to next generation D&A Platform. 

Takeaways:

  1. Basic explanation of Microservices and Containers
  2. Learn more about Data Fabric and the role it plays in the D&A ecosystem
  3. How to structure your D&A platform to take advantage of the next generation techniques with Conceptual Architecture of Data Fabric and how Operational Data Store, Data Lake, Data Warehouse, Data Processing (ETL/ELT) and Analytics (BI/AI/ML) are structured
  4. Review sample blueprints for some of the components

CISO's Got Talent: Finding, Growing & Retaining the Best People

While new technology and solutions can help CISOs make more, faster and better decisions for an organization, nothing will take the place of a highly talented workforce. CISOs need to be great recruiters of talent but even more importantly growing the skills and capabilities of their team providing engaging and challenging opportunities for people. Competitive compensation is important for retaining great talent but so is a work environment where individual growth and development are front of mind and not an after thought. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Highly skilled employees want an environment where they can grow their skills and feel appropriately challenged. 
  2. Finding the best people, inside and outside of your company, and then providing a path to individual excellence is a key responsibility of CISOs.

From the Front Lines: 5 Best Practices for Application Defense in Depth

Everyone knows applications are the lifeblood of the enterprise, but as the threats multiply and come at an ever-faster rate, protecting those applications becomes a massive challenge. Layer in the issues associated with moving applications to the cloud, using open source code, implementing rapid release cycles, and being forced to use legacy apps when the development team is long gone, and it's easy to see that application security can be a thankless, endless job. 

Layered security, or defense-in-depth, is an admirable goal. The problem is, how do you achieve it? We've been on the front lines for years, finding what works and what doesn't. In the process we have distilled five best practices that will help enterprises of any size tackle the thorny problem of application security in a dynamic world where change is the only constant. 

A combination of defenses at the edge, in the network and inside the applications themselves forms the core of the best practices. Layered on top are two additional practices that make all the difference: full real-time visibility with analytics, to help beleaguered security analysts quickly distinguish real threats from noise and take action based on full context; and a consumption model that allow the enterprise to quickly, easily and cost-effectively move protections to where they will do the most good. The result? Vastly improved application security, effective remediation, and a DevSecOps model that works.

Scaling Multicloud and Hybrid Cloud Usage without Sacrificing Data Security and Compliance

Analysts claim that 50% of today's public cloud data and workloads will migrate to private clouds in the next two years. But, don't worry about the public cloud behemoths because their average CAGR continues above 20%. However, the result is that cloud data is spreading across multiclouds and increasingly migrating to private clouds that offers the Enterprise more control. This acceleration in lift and shift of workloads creates data security and compliance risks as well as management complexities. In this discussion, we'll share trends and best practices for enabling data portability without compromising security, compliance, and operational efficiencies. 

Take Aways:

  • Sharing trends seen by analysts and your peers on multicloud adoption and challenges
  • Discussion of best practices for leveraging native cloud data security services effectively to maintain compliance and control
  • Methodology for efficiently applying data security techniques that allow for secure lift and shift between public and private clouds

With that in mind, Insight can extend to the exciting initiatives from machine learning, AI, IoT and much more. Our team will share experience and expertise in many steps in the digital transformation journey to help you imagine what's possible.

Enhancing Your Edge

Edge computing is computing topology in which the content collection and delivery are placed closer to their endpoints. The goal of edge computing is to keep the traffic and processing local to eliminate delays and reduce traffic. Currently, edge computing is being driven by IoT and requires processing to be close to the end rather than on a centralized cloud server. However, rather than creating brand new architecture, cloud computing and edge computing will evolve into centralized service executing on centralized servers, on-premise servers and on the edge devices themselves.

Takeaways:

  1. Review your organization's progress within edge computing.
  2. How to adapt centralized service execution.
  3. The future of edge computing and its potential capabilities

How to Avoid Catastrophe

Most information security failures, like most business failures, are foreshadowed by near misses and close calls that could have had far worse consequences. Near misses are often overlooked, but even worse, two cognitive biases "normalization of deviation" and "outcome bias"  blind us to the danger of broken processes that appear, on the surface, to be working. Since the Oracle database often holds your organization's most important data, we walk you through the near misses your company's data protection strategy is experiencing now; show you how cost and time pressures lead your IT organization to accept near misses; and provides seven strategies and tools including Oracle ZDLRA to avoid near misses altogether, that cost less and perform better than the catastrophe-prone alternatives.

The Latest in Blockchain

Entire industries are reshaped with the implementation of blockchain due to its promise to enable trust, provide transparency and reduce friction, as well as lowering costs and improving cash flow.
