Bring Your Own Cloud..the rise of the digital native!

I live alongside Generation Z  "The digital natives". Specifically, my two kids, aged 19 and 21 , and my hope is that they as digital natives eventually develop into talented business leaders who drive change in the cloud-connected world.  I watch them learn and interact in ways I have not seen in most companies. They are enthusiastic consumers, whose work is based on their needs, availability, and mood.

To them, work, learning and interaction is something they do throughout the entire day, the 9 to 5 model does not apply here! They also prefer to use their own cloud apps, data that should be available anytime anyplace, and some pretty interesting models to get their job done! As you can imagine that comes with some interesting challenges around risk, exposure, and overall security measures! Think about it? Would your company be able to operate like this and attract those talented digital native business leaders who will bring their own perspectives, security services, and desired outcomes?

"Is your organization able to embrace the data age and attract Gen Z talent?" if you are worried, I would recommend following our session where we explain how we secure the cloud and workload!

Digital transformation? from plans to reality

Renewi's purpose is to protect the world by giving new life to used materials. Renewi's vision is to be the leading waste-to-product company in the world's most advanced circular economies.

In order to achieve its goals Renewi launched a strategy based on three market facing pillars:- 1. Be a leader in recycling; 2. Be a leader in secondary material production and 3. Selectively gain market share. The foundation of this strategy is the Renewi 2.0 programme which drives digitalisation of the customer experience and simplification for efficiency and returns.

Renewi was created in 2017, bringing together Shanks and Van Gansewinkel. The post-merger integration programme focused primarily on harmonising operational processes, integrating our shared service activities, and building one Renewi brand and culture. It successfully delivered the expected synergies in the first three years.

In 2020 Renewi 2.0 was launched as the next chapter of integration and business optimisation. It reduces complexity in the service offering, harmonises business processes, simplifies the IT systems and streamlines organisational design alongside improving master data. Most of all, the programme aims to improve customer and employee experiences with frictionless processes.

In this presentation Daniel will discuss the opportunities and challenges that arise when carefully prepared plans meet everyday reality. He will share how the programme is coming to life now that two of the three years of the programme have passed. What worked well? What worked out differently than expected?

Daniel Ivor Post, Chief Transformation Officer, Renewi PLC

From DevOps to DevSecOps; what does it mean to have a security first culture?

Many companies are on the journey from DevOps to DevSecOps. In this presentation, I will walk you through our journey at TUI, how it started, why we did it and what we have done. Whilst we all understand agile ways of working, incremental loops and delivering in sprints, the ambition to bring security into the daily life of the DevOps teams can be more like a marathon or even a hurdle race! No matter the race format, it is an interesting and passionate one that I would like to share with you.

How Being a Third Culture Individual Helped Me as a Professional

We often choose to work with nearshore companies in order to maximize our capabilities and obtain the largest return on investment possible. However experience teaches us that outsourcing anything to external companies, often results in having to cater for issues that we have never had before. The handling of these new challenges almost always has a negative impact on the investment made, causing our decision to outsource, to quickly become unpopular.

There are however aspects which I will share during this session, that are often ignored, even though they could be the key component to a successful outsourcing.


Takeaways: 

  1. What to look for - beyond the obvious - when choosing to outsource.
  2. What can you do as a leader to be successful when outsourcing
  3. How to balance internal teams with external (outsourced) ones.

The Risk of "Dark" Compliance In Microsoft 365 - Building A Governance Plan With a Better Visibility and Control

IT leaders today are dealing with more security threats and compliance requirements than ever. How do you keep up with a constantly-changing environment? Microsoft 365 admins need deep visibility to ensure that increased collaboration isn't also increasing the security risks. 

Join this session where we will provide real-life examples of how you can:

  • Build an effective, efficient and compliant governance using more automation and intelligence.
  • Eliminate unnecessary risk by implementing a functionally-based RBAC model that limits users to the lowest level of privileges needed to do their job.
  • Get visibility into all workloads used in your environments and how to enhance security

Why your MFA Will Not Keep The Bad Guys Out

MFA Requirements Have Changed. Cybercriminals have become more sophisticated in their attacks, and traditional MFA that relies on passwords and other weak factors can't keep up. Remote working has expanded, and rapid cloud adoption demands that companies ensure the identity of the user behind every device, and assess the level of risk before access. How are you protecting your data from advanced attacks? Traditional MFA relies on weak factors like passwords and one-time codes. In this session, learn now you can better protect your organization by eliminating passwords and only use strong factors like asymmetric cryptography and biometrics to protect your organization from phishing, ransomware attacks, and other password-based attacks. Gain control over all users and devices requesting access.

Takeaways:

  • Are you on the right path to protecting your organization?
  • Find out how to best roll out MFA while removing friction, empowering your users and removing productivity killers plus reducing costs.

The changing role of today's CISO

In todays complex world, the CISO experienced several challenges.

Not only in the IT domain, but also in other domains like OT, IoT and physical security. Besides the fact that the threat becomes more sophisticated, the ?own environment' is also becoming more complex by the convergence between those domains.

What does this mean for today's CISO? How can the CISO become successful in today's world? 

This session might provide you the answers to these questions?

Go Fast, Go Safe. How to achieve the Holy Grail of Software Delivery, with Secure, Compliant Processes that don't slow down your Business.

If 95% of C-Suite Executives say that Software Supply Chain Security is top of mind, but only 23% of them confirm that their Supply Chain Security project is 'almost finished', whilst 75% of them believe that Security can be the 'department of slow', then in reality, how ready are most companies to deploy DevOps at scale, safe in the knowledge that they're both secure and responsive to changing market demands?

Prakash Sethuraman, CISO at CloudBees, will explain why supply chain security is hard to achieve, and why a holistic, ground-up approach to securing the software supply chain (through Development, Delivery and into Production) is the only way to really address the challenge of ensuring secure DevOps.

Deriving Data Analytics business value at an acceptable cost under dynamic market conditions

Prior to Covid, organizations were steadily progressing their data & analytics capabilities, however the last 2 years have witnessed major disruptions to their strategies, where the focus shifted to saving lives & managing uncertainty while fighting revenue declines. The situation is not over and within this short span, we have seen multiple factors besides Covid contributing to business disruptions.

In such uncharted waters, access to data and new insights has become an important navigation tool. Some organizations immediately adapted to implementing data & analytics capabilities that took days or weeks rather than months/years and leaders who apply the lessons learnt structurally will be in a better position to deal with the lingering uncertainties both in short & long term.

 In this session, the focus will be on these lessons learnt while focusing on how to deal with these uncertainties in a cost effective manner.

The Journey to AIOps: Empowering Intelligent Automated IT Operations
A successful digital transformation requires AIOps. Artificial intelligence for IT Operations (AIOps) is widely defined as the result of big data and artificial intelligence/machine learning. It's a framework designed to help CIOs and CISOs master today's dynamic IT landscape.

Major advances in distributed architectures, multi-clouds, containers, and microservices, to name a few, have created copious, multi-dimensional data flows that create excessive noise and stifle IT's ability to identify and resolve service incidents.

To transform operations, forward-looking leaders enrich IT data with context, enabling automation and better business outcomes. No matter where you are along the path to AIOps, ScienceLogic SL1 offers you the capabilities to progressively improve service visibility and automate your IT workflows to demonstrate business impact.
