CIO: Do You Need a More Intelligent, Efficient, and Secure Network? (Sept. 13th)
Monday, September 13th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Over the past year-and-a-half, many organizations have begun looking for ways to improve user experiences - whether for internal workers or for their customers. For many, this means swapping out static, network-centric approaches to linking resources, workflows, and data throughout their infrastructure with more dynamic, secure models that operate, in part, with help from AI-driven insights.

From wired and wireless, the WAN, the data center and the cloud, it's less about protecting your network, and more about using the network to protect your business.

CSO: Leveraging Zero Trust to Understand & Mitigate Risk in Containerized Applications (Sep 13)
Monday, September 13th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
While businesses have ramped-up their digital transformation efforts, a side effect for many has been increased security risks across their enterprises. With recent high profile software supply chain breaches forcing businesses to turn-up scrutiny of their application security efforts and the collaboration between DevOps and Security, many are also embracing a zero trust approach. While the use of containerized apps offer a number of benefits, particularly in a zero trust model, they still run within a host operating system meaning the software risks can follow the code into the container.

Learn and network with IT executives on the security concerns inherent to DevOps, the risks associated with modernizing your applications and how organizations are addressing these cybersecurity risks.

      DARKReading: Implement DMARC the Right Way to Keep Phishing Attacks Out of Your Inbox (Sept. 21st)
      Tuesday, September 21st, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
      DMARC, SPF, and DKIM are global anti-domain-spoofing standards, which can significantly cut down on phishing attacks. Implemented correctly they allow you to monitor email traffic, quarantine suspicious emails, and reject unauthorized emails. But less than 30% of organizations are actually using them. And even fewer are using them correctly.

      In this webinar, Roger Grimes, KnowBe4's Data-Driven Defense Evangelist, will teach you how to enable DMARC, SPF, DKIM the right way. You'll also discover six reasons why phishing still might get through to your inbox and what you can do to maximize your defenses.

      DARKReading: Learn Why XDR Delivers Better Outcomes to Secure Your Endpoints (Sept. 30th)
      Thursday, September 30th, 2021: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
      Endpoint security continues to evolve. The increasing complexity of the threat landscape means we can no longer depend on next-gen antivirus (NGAV) or EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) alone to protect against sophisticated attacks. It's well known that endpoint attacks are a common and frequently used entry point for attackers to move laterally to other valuable network assets.

      The good news is that there is a way to get more endpoint security with less effort, it's called eXtended Detection and Response (XDR), and it's available today. XDR is a common sense approach that recognizes that endpoint security must work seamlessly with other security controls, including identity, network, and email to defend against attacks. XDR provides a more holistic and effective approach to threat response. And endpoint security plays a pivotal role in XDRs ability to deliver more simplicity, visibility and efficiency to SecOps teams.

      Join Cisco security and their customer as they discuss how XDR helped protect their endpoints better with less effort.

      SNIA: Storage for AI Applications (Oct 4th)
      Monday, October 4, 2021: 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
      Everyone enjoys having storage that is fast, reliable, scalable, and affordable. But it turns out different applications have different storage needs in terms of I/O requirements, capacity, data sharing, and security. Some need local storage, some need a centralized storage array, and others need distributed storage - which itself could be local or networked. One application might excel with block storage while another with file or object storage.

      With limited resources, it's important to understand the storage intent of the applications in order to choose the right storage and storage networking strategy, rather than discovering the hard way that you've chosen the wrong solution for your application.
