InformationWeek: Leveraging Infrastructure as Code to Streamline Security and Operations (Aug. 3rd)
Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Managing risk in short DevOps cycles is a common struggle for cloud native organizations, and the constant stream of breach announcements provides evidence that success is not easy. For many teams, the problem boils down not to a lack of awareness or visibility but to an inability to prioritize remediation of the most pressing issues in a sea of findings and alerts.

Attend this webinar and you'll:

  • Find out how IaC is a key tool helping DevOps teams accelerate delivery, and faster deliveries often complicate security processes

  • Discover how IaC holds the key to accelerating security by providing the context necessary to understand which findings represent the most critical exploitable risks

  • Learn how by embracing IaC, modern security tools can deliver highly relevant, actionable findings even in early development phases and within automated DevOps processes where problems are easiest to fix and minimize remediation cost

Hosted by InformationWeek and accurics


CIO: How AI is Poised to Revolutionize IT Operations and Development (August 3rd)
Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
As the pace of change in business accelerates, IT operations are becoming more complex. Operations teams simultaneously must operate within complex technical environments; manage expansion - and location - of heterogeneous data, and navigate security risks. That's why so many enterprises now look to artificial intelligence to drive value with a more automated approach to IT operations. The key is to build a flexible DevSecOps culture that's delivered through ChatOps, social coding, and an AI-driven approach to IT operations that spans modern hybrid cloud landscapes.

Join CIO contributing editor Charles Pelton and subject-matter experts from our roundtable sponsor, IBM, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable.

Hosted by CIO and IBM

CIO: Building an Enterprise-wide Framework for Containerization Across Hybrid Multi-Cloud Environments (August 4th)
Wednesday, August 4th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
By virtually all analyst estimates, more than half of global organizations will run containerized applications in production. Container engines such as Docker and orchestration frameworks such as Kubernetes, provide a standardized way to package applications - including the code, runtime, and libraries - and to run them in a consistent manner across the entire software development life cycle.

Hosted by CIO and IBM


Tackling IT Complexity: APIs and Scaling Digital Innovation (Aug 5th)
Thursday, August 5th, 2021: 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
The complexity of API solutions can slow down operations and innovation. There's time-consuming management, multiple approaches to security, data silos, and inconsistent approaches to policies and governance. On the other hand, the faster an organization can build an API - and the more that API is reused - the more digital projects it can launch. To master API complexity, many enterprises are centralizing API governance, leading to a more agile approach to business.

Join CIO contributing editor Charles Pelton and subject matter experts from Axway, for a virtual roundtable discussing a single, integrated approach to APIs.

Hosted by CIO axway


InformationWeek: An Enterprise Guide to Web Security (Aug. 10th)
Tuesday, August 10th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Enterprise security professionals must deal with all levels of data protection, from insider threats to attacks from state actors. But one of the biggest headaches facing security teams is protecting corporate data from simple Internet connections. In this webinar, our experts will discuss the multitude of ways that criminals are trying to get at your systems through the Web, including network, server, and device level connections.

We'll outline some of the tools and techniques for developing a sound security strategy. Some of the simplest approaches can also be some of the most difficult to protect, not just because of the sheer number of endpoints, but also the simplicity of the approach.

Hosted by InformationWeek and MENO Security

DARKReading: Two Sides of the PAM Coin (August 11th)
Wednesday, August 11th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
A vault is a great first step in protecting your company from identity-related data breaches, but don't stop there! We invite you to join ThycoticCentrify to learn why you must go beyond simply implementing a vault to further mitigate risk and align with modern best practices such as Zero Trust.

At this interactive webinar, we'll share PAM insights including how to:

  • Reduce privileged accounts
  • Implement least privilege with privilege elevation
  • Establish a root of trust and protect at the system level
  • Control administrator activity and access with privilege elevation
  • Assure identity with MFA Everywhere
  • Ensure full accountability of administrative actions

Plus, Tony Goulding and Brad Shewmake will walk us through these important concepts and considerations for PAM maturity to secure the modern enterprise. Hosted by Dark Reading and Centrify


CSO: Understanding and Addressing the Realities of Insider Risk (August 11th)
Wednesday, August 11th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Insider risk is a growing data protection problem largely due to bypass culture, dynamic workforce, technology gaps and security burnout. Yet most organizations do not prioritize reducing this risk until they've suffered a loss. Security leaders are left with the challenge of improving the confidence level in their organization to ensure that their most valuable data is protected.

Topics to be covered during this virtual roundtable include:

  • Reducing risks in the development process.
  • Evaluation of the risks from the application development process.
  • Application Development Security.
  • DevSecOps

Hosted by CSO and Code42

Monday, August 16th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

With the shift to agile modern and workspaces, organizations are looking for ways to support an increasingly diverse, distributed and dynamic workforce securely, effectively and productively.

Join CIO contributing editor Aaron Goldberg and subject-matter experts from our roundtable sponsor, Adobe, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable to discuss strategies to manage the new hybrid workforce while maintaining secure and remote file transfers to safeguard the sharing of data and more.

InformationWeek: Fact or Fiction? The Truth About Cloud Native Security (Aug. 18th)
Wednesday, August 18th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
More organizations are moving forward with their digital transformation journey and embracing the cloud native world. In every field, there are myths and misconceptions that develop over time. In the case of cloud security or cloud native security, this has manifested in a relatively short space of time. A few that come to mind:

  • The public cloud is more secure than an on-premises datacenter
  • DevSecOps is just about adding 'security' or 'scanning' to DevOps
  • Cloud Service Providers natively deliver all the security controls a company needs

Hosted by CIO


CIO: Manage Cloud Sprawl and Create Consistency Across Hybrid Multi-Cloud Infrastructure Environments (Aug. 23rd)
Monday, August 23rd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Virtualization...containerization...server automation...hyper-converged infrastructures. Over the past 18 months, each of these concepts has seen accelerated adoption across all industries. In so doing, many organizations have witnessed a spike in complexity and fragmentation, prompting many to explore how to overcome inconsistency and complexity while dealing with application sprawl and siloed data across cloud providers. Organizations find their use of multiple clouds was born out of decentralized IT practices, making it challenging for IT Ops teams to untangle the complexity.

Join CIO contributing editor Lane Cooper and subject-matter experts from our roundtable sponsor, IBM, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable.

Hosted by CIO and IBM

Accurate Table Extraction from Documents & Images with Spark OCR
Wednesday, August 11th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Extracting data formatted as a table (tabular data) is a common task - whether you're analyzing financial statements, academic research papers, or clinical trial documentation. Table-based information varies heavily in appearance, fonts, borders, and layouts. This makes the data extraction task challenging even when the text is searchable - but more so when the table is only available as an image.
