  • Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Nathan Devoll, SV Consultant, CA Technologies Recorded: Jul 26 2016 54 mins
    Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.

    Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
    •Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
    •Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
    •Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
    •Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts

  • On the way to Smart Factory On the way to Smart Factory Jay Monahan, Director of Smart Factory Solutions, Dell Services Recorded: Jul 22 2016 42 mins
    Presented by Jay Monahan, Director of Smart Factory Solutions, Dell Services. In 2012, The Economist claimed we were entering the third industrial revolution based on the digitization of manufacturing, also referred to as the “smart factory.” The development and adoption of the Internet of Things is a critical element of smart manufacturing as reduced sensor device cost, and increased connectivity and in-memory processing give manufacturers the ability to gather and use data to increase product quality and transform operations. IT organizations are increasingly involved with the management, security and governance of this data as equipment and products are connected to the internet. This session will provide a practical framework for evaluating ways to improve sensor enablement, transaction processes and analytics based on real-world customer examples.

  • Briefings Part 1: Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack Briefings Part 1: Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack Barry Shteiman, Director, Threat Research, Exabeam; Brandon Dunlap, Brightfly Recorded: Jul 21 2016 60 mins
    Ransomware is currently one of the most disruptive security challenges for enterprises. As it moves from an individual employee's PC to the corporate network, the impact can be significant. Despite research and analysis by security firms and analysts, most don't have a good idea of how a piece of ransomware actually operates, i.e. what is affected and when, what signals to look for, etc. Exabeam researchers have detonated nearly 100 strains of ransomware in the labs and produced a detailed analysis of how a ransomware attack actually unfolds, and how an organization might respond to shut it down. Join Exabeam and (ISC)2 on July 21, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern and gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of ransomware, how to detect it and shut down an attack.
