We look forward to seeing you at the 2012 FedCyber Summit on 15 Nov 2012. An amazing group of cyber security professionals from all three branches of the federal government have signed up to attend. They are being joined by other world-class-best cyber security professionals from industry and academia, including some of the greatest at incident response and cyber forensics.

The morning keynote features DoD’s lead for all cybersecurity policy, Eric Rosenbach, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Cyber Policy.  Following a full day of interactive sessions designed to examine best practices and emerging concepts, we will have a closing keynote by one of the most highly respected practitioners in our field, General Harry Raduege (USAF ret).  General Raduege will provide insights on the state of cybersecurity globally  and will also give us his views on the FedCyber summit, highlighting his key takeaways from the event.

Technology will also be examined during the day, with panels on emerging tech and a series of ignite-style presentations from firms like Safenet, HP, Fireeye, Certes Networks, Cyber-Ark and an exciting update on the new open source project by Cloudera called Impala.  This Impala session may be the first chance many of us have to see this new capability.

The event will also feature a presentation by Jason Healey of thee Atlantic Council on the history of cyber conflict. This is the result of a formal study extracting lessons learned from our collective history. Conclusions will be action-oriented and inform your security decisions today.

This day-long FedCyber event is designed to help us all examine our defensive concepts and should help make a positive difference in our collective approach to emerging and dynamic threats. Please register now at: http://events.carahsoft.com/event-detail/1697/fedcyber/

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
