Dean Corcoran & Philip Meyer, Partner Technology Strategists Microsoft
01 June

Join two seasoned Microsoft Technology Strategists for 45 minutes of thoughts and stories focused in on a few of the tens of opportunities Azure offers to Partners.  They’ll look beyond the classic picture of migration of servers, running databases, and creating business continuity / disaster recovery based on Azure Backup and Site Recovery to the new age of partners painting modern innovative solutions for customers of all sizes and all industries.  The session is intended to open your minds to adding more value in engaging customers, and subsequently greater profitability for your business.
Security Advisory Panel
01 June
14:15 AEST  |  12:15 SGT  |  16:15 NZT

In Government policy and in law, cybersecurity is now perceived as a center of strategic risk. As additional levers are pulled to force greater attention from businesses, the specter of personal liability is growing for boards, executives and business owners. 

Gartner predicts that personal liability for breaches across the technology spectrum globally will broaden to include cyber-physical systems within the next few years.  Penalties for companies have often been covered by specific insurance options, but where personal liability begins, that financial safety net ends. 

The Evolve 2021 Security Advisory panel will examine the balance of responsibility between organisational leaders and security practitioners. The panel will also consider how MSPs and CSPs can develop a multi-layered approach to mitigating security threats.
