Vormetric Hosts Federal Computer Week Webcast with Former CIA CISO on Securing Data in the Cloud

Click to Tweet: Join former #CIA CISO, @FCWnow, & Vormetric Nov. 29 to Debunk Five #CloudSecurity myths http://bit.ly/UvsuLZ #VormetricWebcast

WHO:

  Robert Bigman, Former CISO, Central Intelligence Agency and president of 2BSecure, a privately held information security consulting firm. During his 30 year tenure with the agency, Mr. Bigman received numerous awards and recognition for innovations in IT security. He architected the model information security program for the U.S. Intelligence Community, influenced Intelligence Community and U.S. Government information security policy, and briefed congressional committees and presidential commissions. He is currently focused on helping organizations exploit developments in information technology, such as cloud computing and big data, while ensuring intellectual assets, data, and systems are protected from cyber threats.
 
Derek Tumulak, Vice President, Product Management, Vormetric. Mr. Tumulak has more than 15 years of product management and engineering experience in the information security industry. Previously he served as Vice President of Product Management for SafeNet and Ingrian. He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo in Canada.
 

WHAT:

Organizations are looking to tap the on-demand computing power, analytics, applications, and massive storage offered by the cloud. The Office of Management and Budgets (OMB) issued a “cloud-first” policy promoting cloud computing. Yet progress is slow, since many don’t fully understand and trust cloud security systems to protect their data or ensure compliance with federal and state regulations. In this Federal Computer Week (FCW) webcast, Robert Bigman will expose the myths and reveal steps enterprises and government agencies can take to secure data in the cloud. Participants will learn:

-- The impact of virtualization and cloud computing on data security – minus the five myths
-- Why hackers view cloud hacking as different, not harder
-- Why regulations including FISMA and FedRAMP make excellent starting points, but don’t go far enough

-- The role of encryption in mitigating risk and best practices for preventing data exposure

 

WHERE:

FCW webcast delivered to your desktop.
 

WHEN:

Thursday, November 29, 2012 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
