Join Bill Kleyman and Tanner Johnson, two experts in data centers and cybersecurity, and industry guest Dr. Brett Walkenhorst, Chief Technology Officer of Bastille, for a discussion on holistic & modern views of security – both the digital and physical. 

 The pandemic has left us in a place, where there is no longer the traditional perimeter around an organization, there is no longer a campus within which all organizational data is required to remain. Instead, employees across the globe work from home using their corporate laptops to stream Disney shows for their children. There are new and important cybersecurity concerns this brings to the surface. However, at the same time, companies must continue to evolve their physical security as well – everything from advancements in identify access to fencing around a data center. 
These three energetic, passionate & thought provoking individuals will share data & recommendations on how to protect your organization from logical and physical threats – covering everything from dumpster diving to ransomware! 
Key takeaways: 
Why organizations need to reassess their security protocols now 
Data on top concerns of organizations around security & where investments are being made
Top security risks for enterprise & colocation data centers 
What to do in the event of a breach
How to avoid a breach
Understanding that physical & logical security must be equally considered
