When: February 24, 2014, 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.
In this professional development panel, participants will discuss a recent study that examined how cybersecurity academic programs measure up to the demand for new skills and whether cybersecurity defenders should be groomed with broad skills or specialize in technical areas.

Session:Diablo Security: What Can Infosec Learn from Video Games?” (session code MASH-T07B)
Who: Dwayne Melancon, chief technology officer, Tripwire, Inc.
When: February 25, 2014, 2:00 p.m. – 2:20 p.m.
In this security mashup session, security professionals will learn gamification techniques that leverage the skills, weapons and countermeasures that can make their day job both fun and heroic.

Session:DevOps/Security Myths Debunked” (session code ASEC-W03)
Who: Dwayne Melancon, chief technology officer, Tripwire, Inc.; David Mortman, chief security architect, Dell Enstratius; Gene Kim, author, IT Revolution; Josh Corman, chief technology officer, Sonatype; and Nick Galbreath, vice president of engineering, IPONWEB.
When: February 26, 2014, 10:40 a.m. – 11:40 a.m.
In this application security panel, panelists will address a number of DevOps myths and show attendees how to embrace DevOps in order to maintain an appropriate security profile in their organizations.

Session:Disrupting the Progression of a Cyber Attack” (session code HT-R04A)

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
