10:40am - 11:30am - Sponsor (Rubrk): Do you know what your data did last night? Or where it went? by Jim Denison and Mick Wencil

As businesses adopt cloud, they grapple with massive data fragmentation, making it impossible to know where sensitive data resides or if it was impacted by malware.  At the same time, ransomware attacks are growing in frequency and sophistication, and the increasing risk of data privacy breaches and non-compliance with regulations impose serious financial penalties.
What's your plan today for an attack?
With Rubrik’s plan there’s no need to pay a ransom demand, or the fines from compliance & privacy law violations.   You’ll recover painlessly with immutable backups, and apply machine learning to discover, classify and report on sensitive data.  Don’t mess around with lawsuits and cyberattacks that cripple revenue generating operations.  No one has time for that.

During this session, you will learn how to:
- Optimize your ransomware remediation with Rubrik’s immutable backups and end-to-end encryption.
- Strategize for early detection and recover quickly in the event of an attack with minimal data loss.
- Configure policies to scan your backups for sensitive data and build a system of record for compliance
