The Future of Cyber is Cloud-Native, the Killer App is Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence (ML/AI)

Presented By: Vmware, Don Bailey

The unprecedented growth of Kubernetes, Cloud-native architectures, tools, and projects in recent years is a strong indication that Cloud-native technologies will be a key component of future of cyber. A relatively new class of compelling application type is Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence (ML/AI). The combination of Cloud-native and ML/AI is a natural assumption and will likely figure prominently in future cyber capabilities and threats. Cloud-native architectures and ML/AI are important technologies to the Air Force and DoD writ large. This session will review what a performant Cloud-native platform is, how to build one, and how to operate it. Additionally, this session will review and demonstrate several ML/AI applications and tools on a Cloud-native framework. Finally, this session will demonstrate how cloud native software development practices enhance ML/AI efforts.

CASB: Securing the Cloud

Presented By: McAfee, Brian McGoldrick

Enterprise cloud services offer new opportunities to increase resources and capabilities. But protecting cloud services remains a major challenge for IT environments. Broader use of the cloud is presenting an increase in opportunities as well as potential vulnerabilities to threats. The 2019 Cloud Adoption and Risk Report reveals that most organizations use approximately 1,935 cloud services, but most think they only use 30.  We will discuss the transition to cloud services and the challenges IT faces with securing them.
