  • The Future Defined DataCentre

    Presenter: Guy England 

    Job Title: General Manager, Lenovo Datacentre Group UK and Ireland 

    The datacentre needs to change to meet the constant demands from business for more, faster and at lower cost. As a result IT departments need to find new ways to be more agile in service provision and to change the cost model.

    By embracing new software defined technologies and the public cloud, IT departments can move away from a slow to provision and costly to manage 3-tier architecture into one that is dynamic and delivers a truly hybrid-cloud experience.  Such an environment will protect key assets on premise but allow the exploitation of the public cloud when required.

    Please attend this session to hear about how Lenovo and our strategic partnerships can help you make this transition to a future defined datacentre.

    Presenter: Paul Ducklin 

    Job Title: Senior Technologist, Sophos 

    Breakout Description: Sit back and watch a live malware demo (in perfect safety - no one will need to reformat any phones or laptops after the talk!) that shows how cybercrooks stitched together some freely downloadable tools to create zombie malware that hooks up your laptop to the Dark Web. At this point, the crooks can take over your device anonymously from anywhere in the world, "rent out" your computer to other crooks, and use it to do just about anything they like. Oh, and just to prove a point - this particular malware runs on Macs, not on Windows.
