Your Last Line of Defense: A Guide to Disaster-proof Data Backup and Restore
While the importance of data backup is well established, the backup plans most companies use are decades old. The explosion of data in last 20 years has been matched by ever increasing storage capacity, a combination that creates one huge problem: how do you restore this ocean of data quickly when disaster strikes? In this session you’ll learn the techniques and technologies that will get your business back up and running quickly in an emergency while maintaining your long-term archives.

Session Eight2:15 pm - 2:45 pm
Data as the Next Endpoint
Data is essentially inert and passive, lacking an inherent ability to either control its own fate or mitigate risks while under process, as well as at rest and in transit. Data loss and theft is a result of the problem.
The safety of the data is wholly dependent on human behavior and infrastructure. In reality, the enterprise protects data indirectly through a static perimeter. Endpoints are managed, and trust assumed. This approach is not data-centric and has reached obsolescence.
This workshop will survey the domain of the state actors and ensuing vulnerabilities to our infrastructure and corporations. It will highlight a paradigm that imbues data with self-governance, provenance and protection capabilities, to make it the new perimeter and a source to rethink deployments, workflows, and responsibilities.
Mr. Rickard graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Physics. As a self-taught programmer he wrote computer programs to predict future stock movements and used that program to pay for his college tuition. His creativity and entrepreneurship got the attention of Wall Street and the DoD. He chose the DoD and quickly became a wargaming modeler, modeling Soviet military tactics. He eventually became an expert in US military weapon systems reliability by developing advanced analytic methods (i.e., big data). Soon after, he became an expert in applying machine learning and other advance analytic techniques to disrupt and defeat global terrorist threats. Not long after he assumed leadership roles where he led teams of subject matter experts in large scale defensive cybersecurity operations and systems. Today, he enjoys working with startup technology companies who have truly unique and differentiated capabilities. He serves on the advisory board of several companies and has most recently partnered with Sertainty Corp, the only company in the world to perpetually and permanently secure data by enabling it to defend itself.
