Scale for Tomorrow: Achieving Business Continuity Beyond 2020

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

Given that more people are connecting to their workplace systems from home during the COVID-19 global pandemic, there are more attack points for hackers to target than ever. So not only do organizations need to scale their services to meet demand, they must upgrade their cybersecurity approach to ensure data, customer information, premium content and virtual goods aren’t at risk.

Join us to discover how organizations have adapted to a post-pandemic world and the lessons they’ve learned along the way to make sure you’re ready for everything the future holds. If you’re a CIO or CISO looking to achieve seamless and secure business continuity for your organization, we have the event for you. On Wednesday September 23rd 2020, cybersecurity and global content delivery network provider Akamai is partnering with Chief Wine Officer for an exclusive digital wine-tasting and networking event – and you’re invited!

Leading the discussion will be Tony Lauro, Director of Security Technology & Strategy at Akamai Technologies. He’ll be on hand to help you readjust your strategies to protect your organization with new solutions that prioritize application availability and DDoS protection while scaling for peak traffic.

Attendees won’t only receive cutting-edge insights from industry experts. Register now to take part in the digital version of the famous Chief Wine Officer networking experience. We’ll ship several of the world’s finest wines direct to your door, which an internationally renowned wine expert will introduce you to throughout the evening. And then you’ll take part in a wine-related competition, with the winner earning themselves the ultimate accolade to put on their resume: Chief Wine Officer!

There are just 15 places for this exclusive event and they always move fast – secure your place today!

Business must continue and we’re delighted to enable this through our interactive events. We hope you can join us virtually for the discussion.

EAST COAST

This is an east coast focused event, however unfortunately due to licensing laws we cannot ship wine to the following states: Delaware (DE), Kentucky (KY) and Maine (ME).

Not been to a physical event of this kind and think it would be awesome fun. The virtual event was as enjoyable. The forum / format is unique and engaging.
