It’s critical to stay current with the technology that runs your organization and secures your operational infrastructure. INTERFACE addresses these IT issues through informative, non-sales oriented, educational seminars customized to the specific needs of the local business community. Using case studies and best practice examples, these exhibitor-presented sessions offer you the solutions needed to address your technology challenges and achieve your organizational goals.
When it comes to cybersecurity, the threat landscape is changing every day. From ransomware attacks to the security of the Internet of Things, there’s a lot to take in. Let our experts break it down for you. Join Kaspersky to learn about trends from the past year and predictions for the future of cybersecurity. This talk will give you a sharper focus on how to protect your business and how to plan for your future IT security needs.
Cyber-attacks once were mainly the concern of governments, large corporations and other highly visible networks. Not anymore. The financial rewards generated from the theft of credit card information and other sensitive data gave rise to a new breed of malware, the polymorphic threat, and with it, the amount of malware has skyrocketed.
Most of today’s malware is polymorphic and highly adept at changing its identity to evade standard, signature-based security platforms. Alone, these platforms will not recognize many of these threats. Advanced persistent threats, or APTs, increase the threat level by employing sophisticated evasion capabilities to get payloads past a network’s defenses where they persist, undetected. APTs are targeted to an organization or a specific technology and often leverage zero day vulnerabilities – flaws for which no patch is available and no signature has been written. Any organization can become a victim.
The world of Identity Management is dangerously fragmented and needlessly complex. Don’t settle for half a solution when you need full protection for both end users and privileged users.
Centrify secures enterprise identities against cyber threats that target today’s hybrid IT environment of cloud, mobile and on-premises. The Centrify Identity Platform protects against the leading point of attack used in data breaches ― compromised credentials — by securing an enterprise’s internal and external users as well as its privileged accounts.
In this session, we will discuss a platform approach to securing enterprise identities and:
To pay or not pay: The future of Ransomware. What’s working, What’s not, and what’s next?
Panel Moderated by Brian White • Sr. VP, Information Services, Hiway Federal Credit Union
Christopher Miller • GRC, Program Manager/Architect, HealthEast
John Jeries • CIO, St. Catherine’s University
Charles Kilmer • Security Officer, NetGain Technology, Inc.
Many organizations have environments that include human, network, mobile, endpoint, virtualized and cloud resources, and assets. Understanding what the Kill Chain is and leveraging services, resources, and technologies to account attacker methods and activities can lead to breaking the Kill Chain.
You’ve read the headlines. Unfortunately, the question now is not if your information is going to be accessed or stolen, but when. Perhaps surprisingly, IT professionals are not immune to these attacks. In an effort to inform the attendees of current developments in the digital underground as well as provide realistic advice for cyber protection, Mark Lanterman will be discussing recent high profile cyber-crime events, including Web Site breaches impacting retailers, banks and government agencies. Mark will also discuss particularly dangerous types of threats that might effect individuals such as the Dark Web, the Internet of Things, phishing, and wifi attacks.
Mark Lanterman is the Chief Technology Officer of Computer Forensic Services. Before entering the private sector, Mark was a member of the U. S. Secret Service Electronic Crimes Taskforce. Mark has 28 years of security and forensic experience and has testified in over 2000 cases. He is an adjunct instructor at the University of Minnesota, Mitchell Hamline Law School and the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada.
Mark provides regular commentary on cyber security issues for national print and broadcast media, including NBC, ABC, Bloomberg, and The Wall Street Journal.
It’s 2016, but organizations still struggle to deliver consistent and predictable performance for their cloud and virtualized applications. Even with advances in flash technology, storage remains designed for physical, not virtual, workloads, and it shows with unpredictable performance, difficult troubleshooting and fragile scalability. Storage needs to be aligned to virtualization, but what is VM-Aware Storage besides a buzzword? We will investigate the five requirements of VM-Aware Storage, and which technologies enable those requirements.
No one thinks they need disaster recovery until they do. The fact is that most “disasters” and datacenter outages are not caused my hurricanes or severe weather. Random power outages, human errors and many other non-weather factors are the typical causes of service interruptions. Join us to see the results of a survey of IT professionals just like you and learn:
We will cover two use cases which outline gaps in their DR strategy and how you are able to overcome these gaps. Join us to learn more!
In today’s world of security breaches that cost companies millions, understanding how incidents can occur gives insight into protecting the network and managing risk. With the number of incidents on the rise, it’s no longer an option to simply be content with mitigating a breach after the fact, you must also detect any breaches of security before they can cause damage and prevent further intrusions.
The Engineers at Fortinet will walk you through the life cycle of advanced threats, pointing out their common methods of avoiding detection. Additionally, you’ll be shown how a proper security framework gives you multiple options to detect and mitigate an attack before it has the opportunity to inflict damage; costing you time, money, and public confidence.
Even with a focus on business outcomes, many technology decisions are still made short-sided without ensuring the purchase is future-proof and modular enough to meet future needs. Cloud-based security has inherent flexibility that can meet security objectives while also enabling IT and business strategy.
Innovation Matters. Without innovation, IT is stuck in the 80/20 rule. IT can’t keep up with data demands, data protection and data mobility. Innovation is important to IT as we try to help reduce costs and manage data.
