Veritas Technologies, a worldwide leader in enterprise data protection and software-defined storage market will gather global leaders, local customers, partners and industry experts in the upcoming Veritas Vision Solution Day 2018 in Sydney, Australia. The event will be held on November 15 at Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour.
As part of a series of more than 20 worldwide events across the globe, the Sydney edition of Veritas Vision Solution Day is designed to address tough data management questions plaguing businesses today, such as, how to manage growing data across an equally growing and diverse IT infrastructure and how to keep pace with compliance in a world of GDPR and improve resiliency in a world of ransomware.
“Today’s digital world runs on data. It is a critical asset for any organisation or business. With exponential growth of data, it is a digital imperative for organisations to make strategic choices around data management and protection strategies – no matter where that data is located.” said Howard Fyffe, managing director, Australia and New Zealand, Veritas. “Our customers will want to extract insights from the data that are so rich and predictive in nature, to make more informed business decisions – all while cutting costs and risks.”
Fyffe added, “The internet age has also created a surge in highly-connected customers with more specific expectations placed on businesses. One of the drivers of customer expectations IDC research has highlighted is making global compliance a brand-level commitment. Companies can differentiate their brand promise through adhering to and reinforcing strong data privacy policies.”
Helping customers discover and implement the right data protection and software-defined storage solutions is the ultimate goal of Veritas Vision Solution Day. The event will enable one-on-one discussion to help customers uncover the possibilities and reap the benefits of a holistic data management strategy.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.
Cybersecurity Insights - Attack
No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
Cybersecurity Insights - People
Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
