Research has shown that most organisations would struggle to remain operational in the event of a cyber incident and technology outages in financial services have also increased by 187% in the past year alone. Cyber-attacks have also increased at an unprecedented level.


Financial services organisations are now expected to not only prevent disruption but to have robust recovery processes in place. This coupled with the rapid increase in cloud adoption can present new challenges for financial services organisations. Operational teams now need to adopt a dual strategy that ensures that the move to the cloud (and the multiple benefits that cloud brings) can also be achieved with minimum risk.


This event will suit IT decision-makers or those responsible for their organisation's cloud infrastructure and strategy at a technical level.


The event will demonstrate the power of Azure and the processes for achieving resilience using a structured approach for all data workloads. The event will also cover disaster recovery options, file storage, data access and the protection capabilities available within Azure and its strategic partners.
