Attend Training Seminars. Earn Education Credit Hours.

In addition to viewing exhibitor displays, attendees will have the opportunity to earn continuing education units (CEUs) or continuing professional education (CPE) credits by attending training seminars and professional development panels. Tech Talks will be held next to the Tech Expo exhibit hall in the Officers’ Club.

The Future of Energy Management – Driven by Digitalization and Decentralization

Presented By: Siemens AG

The energy system of tomorrow will be driven by energy resiliency i.e. increasing decarbonization and decentralization; furthermore, unprecedented digitalization is shaping our present and our future.The presentation will focus on these trends, explain the impact they have on the overall shape of energy system design and derive suggestions on how to “future-proof” energy systems of large and complex infrastructures like military campuses.

Cyber Threat Defense and Intelligence Sharing

Presented By: McAfee

McAfee’s ACTD solution provides Defensive Cyber Operations (“DCO”) technology using a scalable framework to share threat intelligence, increase endpoint intelligence, and drive automation. This document will describe how McAfee’s ACTD platform allows cyber operators to focus on real threats through automation and analytics, dramatically increases cybersecurity posture, preventing costly data breaches, and increases the time to remediation when attacks occur through automated threat sharing.

Open Source Risk Quantification and Supply Chain Security

Presented By: Red Hat

Open Source Software (OSS) is often touted as being very secure. But what does that mean? Past security issues are quantifiable using metrics like CVEs and patch response times to new vulnerabilities. But from a forward-looking perspective, how easy is it to find a new vulnerability in a given OSS project? That’s the very problem the Cyber Independent Test Lab (Cyber-ITL) is trying to answer. This important project is somewhat opaque, and unrepeatable for OSS projects, so the Fedora Red Team SIG has started a Cyber Test Lab (CTL) project that aims to answer the same questions around risk quantification. Attendees of this talk will learn about secure development practices, CTL metrics for RHEL 7, Fedora 27, and CentOS7, and changes we’re proposing to the Fedora packaging guidelines that will make OSS safer to consume.

Enhancing Data Center Security with OCI

Presented By: NetApp, Inc.

Ensuring data center infrastructure uptime and resource availability is one of the three security principles of the CIA Triad (confidentiality, integrity and availability). While there are many tools at the disposal of today’s data center engineers and managers, very few of them offer end-to-end visibility into the entire data service path – compute (virtualized and hardware), network and storage. When data center personnel have the ability to understand how resources are utilized, from both a capacity and a performance perspective, they can optimize system performance and prevent service disruptions, ensuring high availability. OnCommand Insight (OCI) provides near-real-time monitoring of the components of the hybrid data center (cloud and on-premise) and gives the ability to visualize data patterns (trending and forecasting) for capacity planning measures. OCI audits device change events and correlates their occurrences to the impact that they have on underlying application infrastructure. OCI’s proactive and reactive alerting features reduce MTTR (mean-time-to-repair), ending the “I/O blender” effect between multi-domain operations. Finally, OCI enables secure access to each device monitored, via communications protocols such as SNMPv3, TLS 1.2, etc., while providing CAC (common access card) access to all of its user interfaces.
