Data in 2022 and Beyond: Moving to the cloud - could you or SHOULD you

Digital transformation has accelerated in 2020 and 2021, but what will that look like going forward. Edward Bezerra, Senior Director, Global Distributed Computing, Storage & Data Centers Engineering & Operations at Herbalife joins us to debate if we are doing it all wrong. Are organizations moving to the cloud for the right reason? Perhaps their solution is right under their nose already. Is your strategy around the future of your data heading down the right path? What's scalable? What is cost effective? What is secure? The answers from Edward may surprise you. 

Join in this spirited discussion and reexamine your data roadmap for 2022 and beyond in this Think Tank.

Think Tank

How To Develop Your Cybersecurity Strategy

Strategy was created to better manage warfare. In the 20th century people determined that the principles behind strategic warfighting were useful in the competition among businesses. Strategy has become so important in our thinking today that leaders of business functions would think of not having a strategy. However, cybersecurity strategy is different from business strategy and IT strategy and requires different thinking. In this presentation I explain how it differs and the way I have thought about cybersecurity strategy. I also provide a process todevelop a cybersecurity strategy for an organization.
