Cyber Security is not Cyber Resiliency

What role does the Storage service play in Cyber Resiliency? Perimeter Technologies job is prevention. Data Protection’s job is recovery.

We need real time prevention, detection and rapid recovery at the source.

Data is the source and the asset the hackers want. You can’t have data without Storage, even in the cloud.

Has the ‘Language of Risk’ Evolved Enough to save us all?

Gaining board-level buy-in to drive enterprise-wide workflow and automation relies on effective communication. Unfortunately, this is an area that needs improvement. Organisations need to deploy platforms that support transparency, compliance and risk reduction while managing complexity and cost.

Cybersecurity in the age of AI

With the sudden explosion in popularity of AI tools such as Chat GPT, it is now common knowledge that AI-driven threats are on the rise.

So how can you take advantage of this powerful technology, and manage the double-edged sword that is ‘Artificial Intelligence’.

Understanding and Managing Digital Risk

While cyber risk has been the focus of recent years, it largely refers to the protection against external and internal threats from nefarious actors. However, the conversation is rapidly shifting towards the broader topic of digital risk which is fast becoming the bigger focus. But what is digital risk?

This session will see us lead a discussion around what is meant by digital risk and how it relates to not only cyber risk, but the success of an organisation’s digital strategy.
