Organizations’ most valuable asset – its data – is under constant assault. Threats like malware, breaches, phishing, ransomware, and even disgruntled employees, need to be not only considered, but be top of mind.

But what happens when the very system that you rely on to protect you in the event of a disaster isn’t secure or protected itself?

In this LIVE Webcast, we examine new threats to storage & backup systems, how adversaries abuse them, and steps organizations can take to mitigate these threats and strengthen your security posture.

We’ll have an in-depth discussion to address some myths of storage and backup security, and discuss best practices for cyber resiliency and recovery.

Points to discuss:

  • What are CISOs doing today to secure their last line of defense?  What are the most common blind spots?
  • Highlights from a recent Industry Report that analyzes the state of storage & backup security
  • Mythbusting! Addressing common myths vs. the reality of securing storage & backups
  • Best practices for backup hardening and recovery
  • Essential mitigation tips and tricks to strengthen your security posture

Join this discussion with John Meakin, Former CISO at Standard Chartered and GlaxoSmithKline, along with Doron Pinhas, a data protection veteran and co-author of the ‘NIST Guide: Security Guidelines for Storage Infrastructure’.
