WSTA to Hold “Resiliency and Disaster Recovery: How Cloud Changes Everything” Virtual Panel for Financial Technology Professionals

The Wall Street Technology Association (WSTA®), a not-for-profit organization that provides financial technology and business professionals a forum to learn from and connect with each other, will host a virtual panel discussion on “Resiliency and Disaster Recovery: How Cloud Changes Everything” on January 28, 2021.

To provide event attendees with an exciting way to kick off 2021, guest speaker Will Bowen, Founder of the Complaint FreeⓇ movement, will kick off the event with his presentation on “Complaining — What Causes It, Why We Do It, and How to Get Ourselves and Others to Stop.”

“As financial firms move towards cloud, they need to rethink strategies for disaster recovery, business continuance, and overall resiliency,” says Nemertes’ Johnson. “Cloud is a real game-changer.”


Panel Discussion Overview

Most financial firms have well-thought-out strategies for business resiliency and disaster recovery. And the majority of financial firms are in the process of moving to the cloud.

Here’s the catch: Many firms haven’t thought about the intersection of these two initiatives. That is, what’s the best strategy for backing up and protecting resources that are increasingly cloud-based?

In a very real sense, cloud changes everything. Protecting cloud-based resources requires a fresh approach. Financial firms should think in terms of protecting all resources (whether cloud-based or on-prem) as well as leveraging cloud capabilities themselves for backup, restoral, and resiliency.

This panel discussion drills into the best practices for disaster-recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS), ensuring business continuance for cloud-based resources, and rethinking resiliency in the age of cloud. We’ll focus on:

  • How to manage risk and resiliency in a cloud-based environment
  • How cloud-based technologies from VDI to cloud-based firewalls & RAS to cloud-based collaboration enables employees to continue working
  • Security controls for cloud
  • How multicloud can (and can’t) provide agility and dexterity
