Following the very successful 24 Hours in the Cloud on line event last year MS are now running 24 Hours in a Private Cloud online event scheduled for May 10, 2012.

Every organization has the power to employ cloud technologies in their own way, at their own pace and with their own terms.

As an end result, organizations increase IT operational agility, improved business focus and achieve value-add economics that evolves their IT infrastructure into a strategic asset.

Over 24 hours, you will hear from top industry and technical professionals from around the world to help you better understand the private cloud technology solutions that are available today. You will hear from industry organizations about how they view the public cloud and how the role of the IT Professional will evolve as more and more organizations begin a private cloud transformation. Listen to the number of technical professionals who will be on hand talking about the required components to simplify private cloud creation and management. Talk with them and your peers about the numerous operational efficiencies that come from deploying a private cloud with the reduction of servers and the benefits of provisioning and managing virtual applications across multiple platforms.

We hope that you will come away from this event with the knowledge and experience to help you in your private cloud infrastructure decisions and be prepared to have thought-leadership based discussions focused on building and managing your organization’s agile and efficient private cloud environment.

p>Building Your Big Data Future With Open Source

Every business is, or should be, a data-driven business today, as the Web and mobile technologies have made it possible and imperative to collect massive quantities of data on customers, competitors, and more. Yet the tools and processes for making sense of that data, analyzing it in real time and using it wisely, are still a work in progress at companies as diverse as Google and Bank of America.  This problem and opportunity of Big Data is a product of the open-source software and infrastructure that powers it, from Cassandra to Hadoop to Linux. At the same time, many of the principles that govern open source offer the scalability and flexibility necessary for the effective adoption of Big Data. OSBC2011 offers the chance to connect with the developers, users and companies behind the most significant open-source Big Data technologies, learning their strategies so that you can make your business more effectively data-driven, as well.

Why You Should Attend

SD ISSA CYBER SUMMIT

Thursday 11/19/09 - Thursday 11/19/09   7:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Location:

What really matters in Cyber Security - where the opportunities are!

General theme/key objectives: Collaboratively identify, assess and then distill the key cyber issues and activities we must all address collectively, to then tailor our organizational capabilities and products around them. Otherwise the current high level organizational and political focus in cyber will continue with no government consensus on an actionable technical way forward. Thus industry needs to decipher and decide what THEY collectively see as the key technical actions to move "cyber security" forward asap, as the threat is upon us ALL NOW - see the recent, very telling "60 Minutes"  CBS presentation on Cyber Terrorism"
http://blogs.zdnet.com/security/?p=4865   
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/11/06/60minutes/main5555565.shtml 

If you saw 60 minutes Monday night, you know there are many security incidents happening NOW (as all the IA folks know anyway): MANY banks ($100m stolen already THIS year, of KNOWN thefts), power plants being affected (one in Brazil, that had a several million folks w/o power for many days), etc, etc that have ALREADY been and are being comprised NOW...   Even our own "CENTCOM" command, among many others!
Until February of this year, ADM McConnell was the nation's top spy. As chief of national intelligence, he oversaw the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency.
Today it's not only possible, all of that has actually happened, plus a lot more we don't even know about. 
It's why President Obama has made cyber war defense a top national priority and why some people are already saying that the next big war is less likely to begin with a bang than a blackout.  "Can you imagine your life without electric power or electronic banking ?"  as all it will take is ONE partial successful effort to destroy our confidence in banking - electronic money /  credit is everything now - and we'll all panic....   """
That is, many, many "cyber" threats are in ACTION NOW, as we know cyber crime is huge and growing fast, but we have seemingly no enterprise, top down, technical "implementation level" action on DOING collaborative IA things as a USA TEAM... So THIS is YOUR opportunity to speak up!!!

Give to Casa de Los Pobres - shoes for the poor

TIJUANA -- They gather each day outside the iron gates, waiting to feed their hunger.

As the short blast of a whistle breaks the calm, they inch their way toward the kitchen at Casa de los Pobres, where a mixture of squash and bologna, soup and tortillas await them. Some in this downtrodden flock of 600 lean on crutches or walkers, and others rock their babies in their arms. Many wear long faces brought on by hunger and despair. This is the every day affair.

This year on December 22nd, about 1,400 families will recieve food, a blanket, one pair of shoes, gifts, and fresh fruit from Casa de Los Pobres, assisted by the hardworking, dedicated, and loving nuns that collect and distribute the goods every year.

Friends of the Poor is proud to support this day annually and asks for your supporting donation. Volunteers welcome.
