Activate your cyber resilience at Think 2019

By: Liza Varghese Hessenkamp

Digital transformation is driving efficiency, improved customer experience and better business outcomes. At the same time, it is rapidly creating unknown vulnerabilities and threats that companies may fail to predict or detect. Your data protection and recovery technologies need to keep pace with the evolving risk landscape. How prepared are you to maintain availability and recover quickly in the event of a cyber attack?

While cybersecurity has always been important, cyber resilience is now an imperative for the enterprise. Your company has a nearly 28 percent chance of suffering a material breach over the next two years, according to the Ponemon Institute’s 2018 Cost of a Data Breach study.

Join us at Think 2019 this February to explore how IBM’s innovative data protection and disaster recovery technologies can help you build a cyber resilient business in a hybrid and multicloud environment.

Think is IBM’s flagship business and technology conference where you can hear from analysts and thought leaders about the latest trends; learn from clients about strategies adopted to mitigate today’s risks; and connect with technologists and leaders in this industry space.

Here’s a look at the resiliency-themed sessions so that you can plan your agenda. You can click any of the below session links to directly enroll.
