Now That Ransomware Has Gone Nuclear, How Can You Avoid Becoming the Next Victim? 11:05-11:32AM

There is a reason more than half of today’s ransomware victims end up paying the ransom. Cyber-criminals have become thoughtful; taking time to maximize your organization’s potential damage and their payoff. After achieving root access, the bad guys explore your network reading email, finding data troves and once they know you, they craft a plan to cause the most panic, pain, and operational disruption. Ransomware has gone nuclear.

React Earlier in the Kill Chain with Integrated Managed Detection and Response (MDR) 11:59AM-12:26PM

In a recent survey, nine out of 10 organizations that suffered a significant security attack were running up-to-date cybersecurity software. They did what everyone told them to do, and it wasn’t enough. Traditional security practices are just not working. Threats are becoming more sophisticated, you are managing too many disconnected products, with too many manual processes. You can’t get the skills and the costs of securing your infrastructure are spiralling. Is this you? If so, you need to integrate your disconnected products and management if you want to survive. Managed detection and response (MDR) is the new best practice. Join Dave Martin from Open Systems where he will explain why your organization needs MDR, how to convince the business that it needs it too, and how to implement it.

IT Trends Report 2020: The Universal Language of IT 12:58-1:25PM

In the seventh year of its annual report, SolarWinds studies how the breakdown of traditional IT siloes has affected technology professionals across on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments. While the survey data was gathered before the COVID-19 (or Coronavirus) pandemic elevated technology professionals as essential workers, the findings are underscored by this challenging period of remote work and increased burdens on the IT environments keeping global organizations operating at full capacity. The study reveals a new reality for tech pros where roles have converged yet budgets remain focused less on emerging technologies and more on infrastructure, hybrid IT, expanding their charter from operations to optimization.
