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.
BDR technology has evolved. There has been an evolution in what defines a true disaster. No longer are fires, floods and tornadoes the only threat to your business. 93% of all disaster recovery scenarios have nothing to do with natural disasters. In this session, we’ll review the changes and new threats to your business, how the technology has evolved as a result, and what true business continuity looks like.
Many organizations are exerting top-down pressure to examine cloud and as-a-service models in general. To the IT managers and administrators in the data center, losing control of your data and/or applications can be a scary thing. There is also a complex web of fiscal and technical items that must be considered. In this presentation, we will help you build a base understanding of the three core as-a-service models. We will then go on to discuss what we see working with our customers in the real world; these are opportunities that can offload some of the drudgery in your data center, while at the same time demonstrating to your organization that you are embracing the cloud.
Cyber-attacks were once 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 panel discussion will address the FBI Cyber Threat Landscape and the Importance of the Public/Private Sector Alliance to Combat the Threat.

We started by focusing on extending research we’d done a few years ago on crop production…and ended up removing all the basic survival requirements for the civilized human race.
Yesterday’s normal doesn’t cut it in today’s environment,and what does work today will be of little service in the future is what you will typically hear from Chris Roberts – One of the world’s foremost authorities on IT Security. His presentation will be a mix of dry wit and humor. Entertaining and engaging, you’ll be sure to walk away with a new way to look at IT and the world around you.
Regarded as one of the world’s foremost experts on counter threat intelligence within the cyber security industry, Chris Roberts consults within Sentinel’s portfolio of security services designed to improve the physical and digital security posture of both its enterprise and government clients.
Roberts understands enterprise security requirements, having served as both an in-house security expert and consultant on IT security, engineering and architecture/design operations for scores of Fortune 500 companies across the finance, retail,energy and services sectors.
This broad perspective and deep knowledge enabled Roberts to develop his expertise into building an unparalleled suite of offerings spanning enterprise vulnerability assessments,penetration testing, digital forensics investigations and attack remediation.
Roberts has been featured in several documentaries and is regularly quoted in national newspapers,television news and industry publications.
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.
In this session, we will look into why today’s IT realities, such as the explosion of endpoint devices, demand a new security model: Organizations must continue to focus on incident prevention but also take a fresh look at strategies and solutions for incident detection and attack response. We’ll show how proper IT auditing can strengthen your ability to uncover vulnerabilities and react immediately to insider threats, cyber-attacks, and data leaks, while also helping you meet compliance requirements and optimize IT operations.
During this session we will cover the data behind security breaches and the rise in malware. Discover why your systems are vulnerable, what hackers do once they get your information, and how to stay protected.
