Old Crow Medicine Show
The CotillionJune 01, 2015 8:00 PM
11120 West Kellogg Avenue
Wichita, KS 67209
The Nashville based folk outfit Old Crow Medicine Show makes a style of music that's nowadays often hard to come by. The group's twangy string arrangements, simple rhythm accompaniments and back woodsy vocals all combine to create a unique form of music that hearkens back to the glory days of yesteryear when musicians didn't need electricity to make music. The group was formed in 1998 and even though the band's style has evolved over time to incorporate elements of bluegrass, country and blues, all the members of Old Crow Medicine Show have all grown to become accomplished instrumentalists and when playing live the band plays with a high level of stunning fervency.

Content is pre-approved by Angelbeat and past attendees to maximize learning; click here to download presentation guidelines that are followed by all speakers. As one Walmart attendee states, "Of all the seminars I attend, your format is by far the best. Brief informative talks from vendors, followed by one-on-one time at their booth to find out more. I am out of the office for less than a day yet I have access to all the different solutions. This year I will follow up with two vendors." As another IT Director commented, "Thanks for hosting a very informative meeting with vendors that tied in well; it was an integrated picture of technologies that work together to create a complete infrastructure solution for the workplace." Every attendee receives meals including a full hot lunch (click here to see the delicious menu), complimentary self-parking and Wi-Fi, plus 4 CPE credit hours towards your CISSP or other certification.

Given the recent Sony and Anthem breaches, you definitely want to attend and learn how to protect your confidential data, stored onsite or in the cloud, accessed via wired or wireless network, from any device, against the latest threats. 7:30 - 8:40: Registration, Breakfast, Exhibit Area Open, Peer Networking, Product Demonstrations 8:40 - 9:00: Top 10 Checklist for Securing Your Network with Accelops: Anthem, Sony, JP Morgan Chase, Target Seemingly every day, another large and sophisticated company suffers a major security breach. In this era of DevOps, software-defined everything, and the Internet of Things, current security tools are increasingly vulnerable and (as these examples demonstrate) cannot prevent attacks by sophisticated hackers. There is hope however.. During this session featuring Accelops, organizations of all sizes will learn how to prevent data center attacks and improve overall network/infrastructure performance by: - Cross-correlating security and performance events - Using synthetic transactions to proactively monitor business services - Creating baselines using machine learning to automate remediation - Using auto-remediation to correct known errors - Mapping hardware and software to your business services 9:00 - 9:20: Stopping Insider Threats, Attacks and Hacks with Varonis The recent spate of highly publicized breaches has drawn attention to the most challenging issue that keeps security professionals up at night once an attacker is inside the network, their activities are often difficult to spot and recover from. This is true of outside attackers that compromise the credentials and systems of employees, as well as employees that are "breaking bad" or unwittingly exposing sensitive files. This session will review the anatomy of typical outside-in attacks including infiltration, data gathering, and exfiltration, then discuss methods and techniques for analyzing file records to spot and stop potentially malicious activity from both insiders and external attackers. 9:20 - 9:40: Protection against DNS-based Attacks Including DDoS from Infoblox DNS servers are mission-critical infrastructure, and they have to continue to respond to queries even when they are under attack. If your external DNS server goes down, your entire network is shut off from the Internet. In the last year alone, DNS attacks have increased by more than 216 percent and growing. Attackers look for the weakest links in your network, and the Domain Name System (DNS) protocol is easy to exploit. As a result, attacks designed to bring down DNS servers and consume network bandwidthand to interfere with or shut down critical IT applications such as email, web sites, VoIP, and software as a service (SaaS)are on the rise.  Infoblox will look at these most common attacks and what you can do to provide superior protection to your critical DNS services. Infoblox (NYSE:BLOX) helps customers control their networks. Its solutions help businesses automate complex network control functions to reduce costs, increase security and maximize uptime. Infoblox technology enables automatic discovery, real-time configuration and change management and compliance for network infrastructure, as well as critical network control functions such as DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (IPAM) for applications and endpoint devices. Leveraging patented Grid technology, Infoblox delivers higher availability, and an authoritative network database for real-time and historical reporting. As the market leader in Automated Network Control, Infoblox provides services and solutions to over 6,100 enterprises and service providers in 25 countries. Its integrated hardware and software solutions help businesses control data flow on their networks by making them more automated, more available and more secure; giving customers the ability to see what's connected to the network, configure and change what's there, and prevent malware from spreading across the enterprise. 9:40 - 10:00: Data Aware Storage with Interwork and Data Gravity DataGravity helps organizations unlock the value of their data.
