Recovering from a Data Breach

By | Blog, Security
Nobody wants to think about the challenges of a data breach. “It won’t happen to me” or “that’s just for the big guys, I’m not a target” keeps us feeling safe, but the truth is a data breach can happen to anyone. In fact, it is estimated that half of cyberattacks are targeted at small businesses. This doesn’t mean it’s time to panic, just be prepared. Here is a quick overview of what to do if your company experiences a data breach. Before the Breach – It’s a great idea to start thinking about your strategy now so that you can mobilize the most effective response in the event that your company experiences a breach. Create a plan that will involve what steps you will take and who will be your active response team. This is also a great time to research potential partners so that you have data security experts at your disposal if you should need to call them in. Responding to a breach is a multi-step process, and it will expedite your response and minimize the breach impact if your company is ready to go should the time arise. Stop the Leak – The first step is (more…)

Data Connect: SAP Renews Commitment To Sybase

By | Dobler Consulting Newsletter
  Data Connect: SAP Renews Commitment To Sybase What’s New   Last Quarter – I published a newsletter announcing the End of Mainstream Maintenance for Sybase ASE 16 and Sybase Replication Server 16 by December 31st, 2025 and for Sybase IQ 16 by December 31st, 2024. Furthermore, there was no successor release listed in the SAP internal release schedule, this left room for all kinds of speculations and assumptions that caught the attention of SAP. Their initial response with the explanation were semantic differences between End of Mainstream Maintenance and End of Life Support, although valid, did little to calm the anxiety. Last Month – SAP hosted an event in Washington DC to officially announce a Roadmap for Sybase ASE and Sybase Replication Server. This was a well-received communication and step forward in instilling confidence with the install base. Unfortunately, the way SAP publishes Roadmaps forced the documents to fall off the top placements and are difficult to find. I made it easy for you. Download the Roadmaps here.   Sybase ASE Roadmap Sybase Replication Server Roadmap   Last Week – I had a face-to-face meeting with the global SAP Leadership for database and technology. In my estimate, this was (more…)

Extended support for SQL Server 2008 has ended, and there is no better time to consider a migration to Azure. Continuing to run business applications and workloads on an unsupported platform will open you up to unnecessary vulnerabilities and potential legal issues. The risk is just not worth it.

It takes time, it takes hard work and dedication, serious talent and a bucket of luck, to be recognized in the Top 10 in any field or any endeavor – it doesn’t happen overnight. With gratitude and humility, I want to thank all for making this Top 10 Achievement possible.
