Storage: Where should the data reside, within your walls, within the cloud and on what?
Live Panel Discussion
23 September at 11am
The demands of the digital world – flexibility, openness, the ability to leverage increasing quantities of data in real time – have profound implications for IT architecture and storage. However, as complexity multiplies, so too do vulnerabilities and the ability to recover when it is needed. The risks entailed are only exacerbated by the increasing sophistication of bad actors and the shift to remote working. The cornerstone of a successful IT strategy must therefore be data and cyber resilience.
In this live-streamed panel discussion, cyber risk, digital, and technology experts from across industries will discuss how to balance the data and processing requirements of the digital age with a rigorous and effective cyber resilience strategy.
Discussion topics to cover:
- How do hybrid strategies, multi-cloud strategies and microservices impact cyber resilience?
- Combatting increasing ransomware attacks: creating an effective air-gapped and immutable data copy strategy
- Managing the cost: what are the advantages of storage- and resilience-as-a-service models?
Who should attend:
Management/Heads: of infrastructure, Storage, Data Protection; Cyber Security engineers; Data security; Storage and Back up; Internal Data Management.
IT Governance: Compliance, Governance & Risk, Disaster & recovery, Resilience
