Disruption or Transformation? Scenarios for the 2020s

The internet has already led to significant disruption in a wide range of industries - retail, advertising, music, taxis - even computing itself. But the technologies that will define the 2020s -- machine learning, smart products, software agents, wearables, blockchains, speech/facial recognition, robotics, augmented realities, algorithms, and 5G wireless bandwidth รข?" are fundamentally much more powerful than earlier digital innovations, and are destined to drive a major new phase of business automation and intelligence. 

In this session, David will show how this coming wave of innovation will challenge both traditional industry incumbents, and today's dot.com leaders, as every industry is increasingly restructured around its underlying data flow.

From the Front Lines: 5 Best Practices for Application Defense in Depth

Everyone knows applications are the lifeblood of the enterprise, but as the threats multiply and come at an ever-faster rate, protecting those applications becomes a massive challenge. Layer in the issues associated with moving applications to the cloud, using open source code, implementing rapid release cycles, and being forced to use legacy apps when the development team is long gone, and it's easy to see that application security can be a thankless, endless job. 

Layered security, or defense-in-depth, is an admirable goal. The problem is, how do you achieve it? We've been on the front lines for years, finding what works and what doesn't. In the process we have distilled five best practices that will help enterprises of any size tackle the thorny problem of application security in a dynamic world where change is the only constant. 

A combination of defenses at the edge, in the network and inside the applications themselves forms the core of the best practices. Layered on top are two additional practices that make all the difference: full real-time visibility with analytics, to help beleaguered security analysts quickly distinguish real threats from noise and take action based on full context; and a consumption model that allow the enterprise to quickly, easily and cost-effectively move protections to where they will do the most good. The result? Vastly improved application security, effective remediation, and a DevSecOps model that works.

The Solution for Your Legacy System's Security: the Cloud

Over the lifespan of an organization, CIOs/CISOs have developed and implemented technologies that has been key to the organization's success. However, CISOs and their security teams today find themselves stuck ensuring that legacy systems are secure. The solution is cloud-delivered security products that are more agile with the ability to implement new detection methods and services faster than on-site solutions.

While cloud security is an ideal solution, it is important to know that using the cloud is more than moving legacy management servers to the cloud.

Takeaways:

  1. Review the status of legacy system security
  2. What cloud solutions are the best fit for their business.
  3. What are the main needs in regards to system's scale, data telemetry, staff growth, machine learning, API-based access, and more.

SD-WAN Explosion: The Emerging Solution for a Cloud-First Enterprise

As enterprises continue to adopt cloud infrastructure and applications, exploding traffic levels and changing traffic patterns are driving them to re-evaluate their WANs. The WAN is a key enabler in transforming businesses to the new digital economy, but the current WAN infrastructure based on conventional routers was not designed for the cloud. To keep branch offices protected from threats, all web-bound traffic is backhauled to headquarters-based security services, which negatively impacts cloud application performance. As a result, enterprises are faced with architectural complexity, inconsistent application performance, and security challenges for applications and users. 

Dover Corporation is a global manufacturing company with 22 Operating companies across five Continents. Hear from Bill Wolfe, Lead Global Enterprise Architect for Dover Corporation, on how they incorporated SD-WAN to simplify and automate their network, integrate new sites easily, have better visibility and save substantially on connectivity costs as part of their goal to improve business operations and become a cloud-first enterprise. 

Bill believes businesses should embrace technology for the purpose of improving business operations, providing a platform for competitive advantage and delivery of new service and product offerings. Learn how Dover Corporation embraced SD-WAN and the results they are getting from the investment.

Scaling Multicloud and Hybrid Cloud Usage without Sacrificing Data Security and Compliance

Analysts claim that 50% of today's public cloud data and workloads will migrate to private clouds in the next two years. But, don't worry about the public cloud behemoths because their average CAGR continues above 20%. However, the result is that cloud data is spreading across multiclouds and increasingly migrating to private clouds that offers the Enterprise more control. This acceleration in lift and shift of workloads creates data security and compliance risks as well as management complexities. In this discussion, we'll share trends and best practices for enabling data portability without compromising security, compliance, and operational efficiencies. 

Take Aways: 

  • Sharing trends seen by analysts and your peers on multicloud adoption and challenges 
  • Discussion of best practices for leveraging native cloud data security services effectively to maintain compliance and control 
  • Methodology for efficiently applying data security techniques that allow for secure lift and shift between public and private clouds

How to Avoid Catastrophe

Most information security failures, like most business failures, are foreshadowed by near misses and close calls that could have had far worse consequences. Near misses are often overlooked, but even worse, two cognitive biases "normalization of deviation" and "outcome bias" blind us to the danger of broken processes that appear, on the surface, to be working. Since the Oracle database often holds your organization's most important data, we walk you through the near misses your company's data protection strategy is experiencing now; show you how cost and time pressures lead your IT organization to accept near misses; and provides seven strategies and tools including Oracle ZDLRA to avoid near misses altogether, that cost less and perform better than the catastrophe-prone alternatives.

Becoming More Decentralized

Today, increased centralization has put the power and trust into the hands of the few big players. This, of course, raises many security concerns. The risk of disruptions and undesirable outcomes increases as centralization opens the door to exclusive possession or control of commodities and services.

As a result, technologies like Blockchain implemented to create decentralized alternatives as they move computing resources away from centralized servers. 

Takeaways:

  1. Evaluating the risks of centralization on availability, confidentiality and resiliency
  2. Exploring decentralized technologies like Blockchain and edge computing that offer visibility as well as enhanced security for your organization.
