10:00-11:00 Bolstering Cyber Response with Automation - Work Smarter, Not Harder Abstract: With a broad attack surface with many moving parts, responding to an incident manually immediately puts us behind in the cyber arms race. According to the Verizon data breach report, it can take only minutes on average to have a device compromised, but may take us months to discover and remediate. Come learn the foundations of a self-healing network, from dynamic access changes to automated response to threats we see in the wild across the attack surface, and see how your networking teams can be enabled to work smarter, not harder.

Google has reimagined its paid options for Workspace, giving schools the flexibility to select, plan and deliver the features and impact that fits schools best. The session will continue with a deep dive into the storage changes, whether or not the changes will affect your environment, and provide real tools (such as our no-cost Gopher for Drive) and resources to determine and track your storage footprint.
