Data Center World 2019

Data Center World 2020 logoData Center World, an Informa Tech-powered global conference for data centers, facilities, and IT infrastructure professionals, has announced new sessions addressing data center security concerns for its Data Center World 2020 event in the US. This event will place March 16-19 at the Henry B. González Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

This Data Center World 2020 event in San Antonio, Texas, strives to provide attendees with new and relevant subjects spanning all aspects of the data center. It would offer in-depth sessions this year on security to help industry professionals further protect their data centers in the future.

These new sessions would address concerns as revealed in the latest Data Center Knowledge report, ‘Trends in Data Center Network and IT Security’.

According to the report, respondents were better able to secure connections to public clouds and improve internal IT processes. Data centers would still depend too much on legacy approaches though, such as using traditional passwords rather than adopting advanced methods including multi-factor authentication and behavioral analytics. Data centers were less vulnerable however to cyberattacks last year, due to better end-user training and education.
