Combating new cyberthreats requires a new playbook

Combatting new cyberthreats with a new playbook

No matter how skilled and capable your IT manager or team is at securing your data and networks, they are only as good as the technology stack you rely on. Between juggling server issues, software updates, printers not working, and constantly reminding your employees to reset passwords, they don’t have time to focus entirely on protecting your data, systems, and applications. The technology to keep your business running and your employees productive needs to be reliable and secure.

One-fifth of IT managers say they didn’t know how their networks were compromised. Why? Cyberthreats are on the rise in 2021 – growing both in frequency and sophistication. These attacks are coming in a number of ways:

  • 33% through email
  • 30% via the web
  • and 23% in software vulnerabilities

Legacy backup and antivirus solutions can’t keep up with the pace of change.

You need a new playbook. We’ll be holding a virtual conference to up your defensive game to protect your users from modern cyberthreats on two dates – the first in North America on March 4, followed by a European presentation on March 11. This virtual conference features IT leaders and seasoned experts who will share actionable and practical insights.

New cyberthreats require a new playbook

There’s no doubt that the layers of legacy solutions that you have historically used to protect data are insufficient today.

To handle the increased data volumes, infrastructure complexity, and more sophisticated cyberattacks of 2021, a next-generation approach is needed – one that combines data protection with cutting-edge cybersecurity capabilities. This integrated approach is what IDC calls the new IT discipline of cyber protection.

The two virtual conferences will bring together world-class IT pros and leaders to discuss why cyber protection is now the go-to approach.

Paul Stringfellow from GigaOm will keynote both events. A leading voice on developing, understanding, and managing data strategies, he is a “hands-on” practitioner involved in a diverse range of data projects.

During the North American conference panel, he will be joined by industry pioneer, Dave Seibert, Boston Red Sox’s Senior Director of Technology, Randy George, and Candid Wuest, VP of Cyber Protection at Acronis.

Adam Fowler, Microsoft expert, Andreas Zimmermann, Managing Director of AZG Tech GmbH, and Candid Wuest, VP of Cyber Protection at Acronis, will join for the European event.

Advantages and benefits of cyber protection

Because your business has limited time and resources, these virtual conferences are designed to give you fast, easy, and actionable information to protect your business from modern cyberthreats. Both presentations will keep runtimes of an hour and will follow a similar agenda:

  • Welcome
  • Keynote - Why your existing cybersecurity stack is failing you
  • Panel – Reality Check: Why SMBs are Targets

Joining the live discussion

If you and your team are tired of working with a complex, costly mess of solutions that don’t solve the modern security challenges your business faces, you’re not alone. We hope you’ll join one of the virtual conferences to discover a better playbook for your business – one that provides the best defense to protect your backups and minimize downtime and data loss.
