Look to the Cloud - The Future of File Storage is Here!

We all know enterprise-class file storage has not fundamentally changed in the past 30 years.  Hardware refreshes, multiple vendors, multiple systems, high costs, capacity limitations have all contributed to a complicated patchwork of tech for IT.  The cloud's promise solves all that.  In this session, you will learn how Cloud File Storage will save you around 50-70%, how it will simplify your environment, and how you will enjoy unlimited file storage across every office location.  You will love having a single, global file system to manage that has built-in file backup, disaster recovery, rapid ransomware recovery, and file synchronisation.

Key takeaways;

  • How the "cloud promise" will change your life.
  • Why file storage doesn't have to be expensive, complex, and limited. 
  • What companies like yours are doing to prepare for the cloud.

Is Digital Transformation Driving the Need for DevSecOps?

There are over 20 million developers working for Enterprise organizations across the globe. The universal desire for faster innovation and Digital Transformation has led to DevOps empowered developers demanding efficient reuse of code, which in turn has led to a growing dependence on open source and third-party software libraries. This velocity means applications are developed faster but it also introduces new security risks. 

Join us as we discuss how the modern software supply chain and the drive for digital innovation is putting organizations at risk. And whether it is time to empower every developer to be a DevSecOps expert?

Panel Discussion

The CIO vs The CISO

Believe it or not, tech and security leaders aren't always aligned. The last couple of years put unique stresses and strains on both leaders. It wasn't long ago that CIOs moved from being technologists to having a much larger role as key strategists for their organisations. Many CISOs found themselves in similar situations going through the pandemic as workers across the globe got thrust into a work-from-home world. Keeping organisations safe and secure moved from a line-item on an agenda to the main initiative at the top of every meeting. CISOs are having a seat at the table more than ever before. Companies had to find a way to work remotely and secure with minimal lead time. For many industries that created tension between the CIO and the CISO. But as our panel will point out, there doesn't have to be a turf war and a well-planned alignment between the two executives can overcome roadblocks to success and lead organisations to a brighter future. Join this session to find out how an environment that features give-and-take between smart, motivated, and innovative executives can help drive optimal business outcomes.

The Role of the CIO

Macro trends, new technologies and changing business models will continue to both disrupt and re-shape markets, out to 2030 and beyond.


Organisations will need to understand the risks in their markets and invest appropriately in order to create a flexible and adaptable operating model, allowing them to react quickly to new opportunities and challenges.


Given the implications, CIO's should be thinking about how they add incremental value and position themselves to help drive the forward looking agenda, as a key member of the executive team

Cyber Resiliency: Achievable Goal or Flight-of-Fancy?

Most organisation's IT infrastructures remain fragile to cyber attacks, especially the current scourge of ransomware operators sweeping across all verticals and all countries across the global.  Becoming cyber resilient to these kinds of attack is an emergent property, not a collection of products you can buy.  In this session James will discuss those emergent properties and how he has seen organisations best achieve them using best-practice frameworks and solid engineering principles..
