Managing the Edge – New Ways of Looking at Your Data Center Infrastructure
Mike Donahue, Vice President of Client Services, CloudWave

As computing transforms to a multi-cloud model, the on-premises hospital data center remains as important as ever. It becomes your “cloud edge,” integrating and federating with services sourced from public and private clouds. These days, buying hardware is not necessarily a commitment to running everything on-premises. Building out a sustainable cloud edge today to securely run systems and services can also position your organization to flex to the cloud tomorrow. Join CloudWave to learn how to build and maintain a data center infrastructure platform with a cloud-neutral architecture, and how integrating point cloud services might be the key to achieving operational efficiency while containing costs. 

How ArchCare Health Services Tested its Cybersecurity Response Readiness

One trend in cybersecurity is that the delegation of cybersecurity risk to the CIO and CISO is no longer a defensible position should you ever have a breach and be called into court. The C-suite and board of directors must see cybersecurity as a critical success factor and understand their gaps, priorities, and risks, and be able to defend their decisions.  

Join Mitze Amoroso and John Gomez as they review how involving the C-suite in tabletop simulations helped improve ArchCare’s cybersecurity response plans. Learn how taking a unique approach to the simulations helped them implement processes and safeguards that were ultimately tested a few short months later.
