Architecting your data protection strategy to be business-centric

About this event


If there is anything we learned from the pandemic is that uncertainty is the only constant. Businesses have responded to the uncertainty by modernizing how they engage with customers, partners and even employees.

At its core, the mission statement of data protection has not changed. However, as data use goes borderless, including on-premises, in the cloud, on applications in a provider’s cloud, and on users’ devices, data protection strategies are in much need of modernisation as well. Why? Threats are distributed, and dynamic and use the very same technologies and techniques enterprises use to support their digital business.

The good news: In a Gartner survey 76% of CIOs report increased demand for new digital products and services since 2020, and 83% expect this demand to increase further in the coming years.

The bad news: A Marsh study says fewer organisations in Asia have improved their data protection capabilities, with more than three in ten failing to do so in the past year, contradicting their perception of a privacy breach and data loss as the top cyber concerns.

Most data protection strategies are centred around having a backup. But what happens if your backup is compromised? Where data protection strategies fail is in minimising business losses from cyberattacks by accelerating data recovery.

This 2 November 2022, FutureCIO in partnership with Pure Storage invite you to a gathering of senior technology executives to talk about:

  • How to simplify data protection without compromising business operations
  • Architecting a recovery strategy at scale
  • Defining a resilience strategy aligned to business goals, objectives and how we operate
  • Roadmap to a futureproofing your data protection strategy
  • Beyond how to mitigate ransomware attacks with backups – accelerate recovery
  • How to develop a recovery plan 


At the roundtable we will identify and develop practical approaches to help you improve your response after a cyber incident has occurred.

At FutureCIO, we understand that it is not a matter of if or when, but how fast we can respond and recover from an incident.

We look forward to seeing you on 2 November 2022.
