Agenda

Cybersecurity and the CISO Mindset

Join CISOs as they discuss the critical issues they face and reveal the strategies they deploy to protect their business in today's ransomware environment.

Ransomware has raised the stakes in cybersecurity—and all eyes are on the CISO for solutions. As ransomware pushes their focus beyond traditional perimeter security concerns, transformational CISOs are tackling challenges that threaten their organization’s operations and potentially their organization’s very survival.

Join this panel to get inside the mind of the CISO with experts from Amazon Web Services, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, and Cohesity. You’ll learn about the key issues CISOs face today, and hear the panelists’ top tips for ransomware preparedness and survival.

Rethinking Air Gap with Data Isolation and Recovery for the Modern Era

Understand how a real world implementation is addressing ransomware, and why a leading analyst sees data isolation as a best practice to address ransomware. And, get an inside look at Cohesity FortKnox.

The Cybersecurity Infrastructure Agency’s (CISA) recent “Shields Up” guidance recommends that backups are isolated from network connections. But traditional air gap methods are proving to be complex, costly, and unable to keep up with stringent business SLAs. In this discussion with an IT practitioner and leading analyst, we’ll discuss best practices around data isolation and recovery, and how enterprises are updating their backup and recovery strategy for the modern era. You’ll also get an inside look at Cohesity FortKnox—the newest SaaS offering that creates an immutable copy of data in a Cohesity-managed cloud vault.
