  • Compliance as Code with InSpec 1.0 Compliance as Code with InSpec 1.0 Christoph Hartmann, InSpec core contributor & George Miranda, Product Marketing Manager Oct 25 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    InSpec is an open-source testing framework with a human-readable language for specifying compliance, security and other policy requirements. Just as Chef treats infrastructure as code, InSpec treats compliance as code. The shift away from having people act directly on machines to having people act on code means that compliance testing becomes automated, repeatable, and versionable.

    Traditionally, compliance policies are stored in a spreadsheet, PDF, or Word document. Those policies are then translated into manual processes and tests that often occur only after a product is developed or deployed. With InSpec, you replace abstract policy descriptions with tangible tests that have a clear intent, and can catch any issues early in the development process. You can apply those tests to every environment across your organization to make sure that they all adhere to policy and are consistent with compliance requirements.

    Inspec applies DevOps principles to security and risk management. It provides a single collaborative testing framework allowing you to create a code base that is accessible to everyone on your team. Compliance tests can become part of an automated deployment pipeline and be continuously applied. InSpec can be integrated into your software development process starting from day zero and should be applied continuously as a part of any CI/CD lifecycle.

    In this webinar, we’ll explore how InSpec can improve compliance across your applications and infrastructure.

    Join us to learn about:
    - What’s new in InSpec 1.0
    - InSpec enhancements for Microsoft Windows systems
    - Integration between InSpec and Chef Automate

    Who should attend:
    Security experts, system administrators, software developers, or anyone striving to improve and harden their systems one test at a time.
  • Clustered File Systems: No Limits Clustered File Systems: No Limits John Kim, SNIA-ESF Chair, James Coomer, DDN, Alex McDonald, SNIA-ESF Vice Chair Oct 25 2016 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Today's storage world would appear to have been divided into three major and mutually exclusive categories: block, file and object storage. Much of the marketing that shapes much of the user demand would appear to suggest that these are three quite distinct animals, and many systems are sold as exclusively either SAN for block, NAS for file or object. And object is often conflated with cloud, a consumption model that can in reality be block, file or object.

    But a fixed taxonomy that divides the storage world this way is very limiting, and can be confusing; for instance, when we talk about cloud. How should providers and users buy and consume their storage? Are there other classifications that might help in providing storage solutions to meet specific or more general application needs?

    This webcast will explore clustered storage solutions that not only provide multiple end users access to shared storage over a network, but allow the storage itself to be distributed and managed over multiple discrete storage systems. In this webcast, we’ll discuss:
    •General principles and specific clustered and distributed systems and the facilities they provide built on the underlying storage
    •Better known file systems like NFS, GPFS and Lustre along with a few of the less well known
    •How object based systems like S3 have blurred the lines between them and traditional file based solutions.

    This webcast should appeal to those interested in exploring some of the different ways of accessing & managing storage, and how that might affect how storage systems are provisioned and consumed. POSIX and other acronyms may be mentioned, but no rocket science beyond a general understanding of the principles of storage will be assumed. Contains no nuts and is suitable for vegans!

  • Best Practices on Operational Efficiency in Network Security Best Practices on Operational Efficiency in Network Security Michael Ferguson, Strategic Security Solutions Consultant, Forcepoint Oct 26 2016 5:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Most businesses prefer to control the day-to-day operations of their networks using their own resources. The increasing complexity of modern networks means that the overall acquisition, control and deployment for network security projects is far more challenging than before. With decreasing IT budgets and limited resources within high growth businesses; how are network teams expected to improve operational efficiency without sacrificing quality of service and service level agreements?

    In a world that is fraught with new security exploits, maintaining operational efficiency with a low impact on resource and cost can be very difficult.

    What are the best practices for maintaining an operationally efficient network security deployment? How do network teams stay on-top of daily routine tasks, such as policy configuration, upgrades and network security monitoring? How can network teams be enabled to focus on mission critical projects through automation?

  • Using App SaaSification as a key to build digital infrastructure Using App SaaSification as a key to build digital infrastructure Suresh Subramanian, Solutions Architect Sr Manager, Cloud Oct 26 2016 1:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    The greatest value the cloud offers is the ability to use technology to scale business processes quickly and make them more consumable. It enables them to run as a service, giving developers and operators more flexibility to stand up a service, sort out what works and what doesn’t, and ultimately improve the user experience. As they say in Silicon Valley, it allows developers to “fail fast” and repeat.

    The so-called “SaaSification” of business is driving innovation and smart organizations get this—they are seizing the moment, creating dynamic services on a platform, consumable by large groups of users at any time. According to some recent industry analyst estimates, 34 percent of enterprises will have 60 percent or more of their applications on a cloud platform within two years.

    During this webcast you will learn:
    -How App SaaSification allows companies to use their new found IT “assets” in ways they haven’t before
    - How App Saasification saves the companies from having to buy any additional infrastructure or expensive platforms. Instead, they were able to scale up and down cost-effectively to offer an additional, value-added product that enhanced customers’ viewing experience
