Exploding data volumes, regulations such as GDPR, the ransomware threat, cloud-first requirements: for IT professionals, particularly those charged with data protection, the challenges just keep on coming.

Indeed, with a recent Experian survey suggesting that 95% of CIOs see data playing a fundamental role in changing the way their organizations operate, protecting this increasingly valuable asset is rapidly becoming a business-critical concern. The move to cloud environments and the challenge of handling data across disparate locations adds further complexity.

So how do you protect your ever-growing data? What impact are cloud-first initiatives having on your business? How are you dealing with the threat of ransomware and other cyber threats? What does GDPR compliance mean for you, and how are you responding? And what does the future of data protection look like?

Join us for this invitation-only, executive industry event – co-hosted by AWS, VMware and Druva – as we explore how and why data protection is moving up the business agenda, and what you need to do to keep pace with changing requirements and emerging threats and technologies.
