Presenter: Chris Greco
Risk is something that we all take for granted every time we drive a car, cross a bridge, or log-on to a computer. A user has an amount of convenience that they “need” to obtain to properly operate the device. When we have the appropriate convenience, we increase the vulnerabilities to the system, which then need to be addressed by the performance monitoring system, as well as capacity managers. In other words, risk elevates as convenience increases.
This presentation will cover how risk to your system can be mitigated by understanding the concept of convenience and vulnerabilities. If capacity is increased with this information in mind, mitigation of the vulnerabilities present with convenience can be seen and addressed.
