Risky Business: Top 3 Ways to Reinforce Your Cyber Defense [Free Webinar]

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 @ 10:00 am Eastern

Are you running a risky business when it comes to your cyber security defenses? Sure, it's easy to calculate and manage risk if you know the complete operating picture--but most organizations (both in the public as well as the private sector) don't. That means you may be implementing solutions without having continuous situational awareness: identifying what is connected to the network, controlling access to those networks, and enforcing continuous compliance across all endpoints.

And, it means you might be running a risky business when it comes to the security of your organization's data. But you don't have to.

Join this webcast to learn how you can quickly understand and remediate security threats by embedding knowledge of network access while driving continuous endpoint compliance--so you can find and fix visibility and security control gaps before they become major security breaches. In this session we'll show you how to protect your network with three core functions: Real-time visibility, control, and continuous compliance & automation. And you'll leave knowing how the combination of IBM Endpoint Manager and ForeScout CounterAct provide the ability to securely manage your networks and reduce risk.

CERN Uses IBM Tivoli Storage Manager to Handle Exploding Data Volumes

"At CERN we have been using TSM for many years, and the amount of data we have been storing on TSM since has been growing almost exponentially. And TSM has been able to grow with it, to scale accordingly.”
- Germán Cancio, section leader for tapes, archives, and backups at CERN



CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, collects more than a gigabyte of data per second, 24 hours a day, from its Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator. To reliably and efficiently store this ever-expanding universe of information, CERN uses IBM Tivoli Storage Manager software.

"The biggest challenge that we have here in the data center is that the four LHC experiments sends us constantly, 24-hours a day, more than a gigabyte of data per second, so we really have to store this data, preserve it in the long-term, but also to make it accessible to several thousands of physicists worldwide." - Alberto Pace, data and storage service group lead for CERN

CERN uses IBM Tivoli Storage Manager software to efficiently and reliably store huge, ever-expanding quantities of data.

"On IBM equipment we store approximately 40 petabytes worth of data. Now consider that a single DVD is four gigabytes of data. So we have around 10 million DVDs stored on IBM equipment."
- Germán Cancio, section leader for tapes, archives, and backups at CERN

I won't quit. Join the fight. #beatlungcancer


Join me today @ http://jointhefight.yournextstepisthecure.org/

In 1971, Richard Nixon declared war on cancer, but the war against lung cancer never even got started. TODAY is the DAY. My organization, The Joan Gaeta Lung Cancer Fund,  is a VERY proud affiliate of the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF). Join the fight and tell them that you won't quit on lung cancer patients until we WIN this war.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths WORLDWIDE, with an estimated 1.4 million deaths each year. More people die of lung cancer in the United States than of breast, prostate, colon, liver, kidney, and melanoma cancers COMBINED.

I won’t QUIT fighting for lung cancer survivors and neither should you.

November is #LungCancerAwarenessMonth

Live Webcast on Nov 12th at 10:30 AM ET - Thwarting the Most Damaging Cyber Threats of 2014 and Beyond

Heartbleed. Shellshock. POS malware. These are just a few of the security-related horror stories that have dominated the headlines this year. And while we only have a few months left in 2014, given the sophisticated nature of cyber-attacks these days, it's doubtful these will be the last.

In the current landscape of fierce and frequent threats, it is not enough to protect your endpoints and data; you also need an efficient incident response system that can react within minutes to threats that get past your perimeter protection, in order to minimize damage to your organization and your customers.

How do you protect your organization from advanced threats and ensure you have a robust incident response system in place that can detect and respond to attacks on your data?

Join our panel of experts as they discuss the top security incidents this year and what you should be doing to ensure you have a comprehensive security system in place that allows you to Protect, Detect and Respond to attacks on your organization.

Speakers: 
  • Rich Caponigro: Product Manager, IBM Endpoint Manager
  • Sean Brown: Senior Product Manager, IBM Security
  • Mark Ehr: Product Manager, IBM Security QRadar Risk Manager
