Cyber Chat: Getting The Boston Red Sox #CyberFit

The Red Sox IT guru Bill Shield shares details of their IT needs

With pitchers and catchers arriving in Fort Meyers, FL, the Boston Red Sox are starting to prepare for their 2020 season. That will involve analyzing a lot of data, all of which must be protected. Brian Shield, Vice President of Technology and IT for The Boston Red Sox, shared an in-depth look at everything IT at the Acronis Global Cyber Summit last year, which provided keen insights into how world-class, data-driven organizations safeguard their infrastructure.

After his presentation, John Furrier of SiliconANGLE’s theCUBE interviewed Shield to discuss the IT needs of the Sox – from how Acronis enables Fenway Park to respond to cyberthreats to how new 5G technology is being tested at the stadium to how data is used in the MLB to detect talent and signal imminent injuries.

SB to speak at Acronis CyberFit Summit Abu Dhabi

Given the Middle East’s rapid ascent as a global technology center, the region has become an attractive, target-rich environment for cybercriminals. In fact, one recent report showed a 12% year-over-year increase in malware attacks in the UAE during the first three months of 2019.

With 6,000 resellers promoting and using Acronis technology in the region, the Middle East is becoming one of the fastest-growing markets for Acronis. That’s why we’re hosting this week’s Acronis #CyberFit Summit in Yas Island Rotana, Abu Dhabi, spreading the cyber protection revolution to this flourishing market.
