TechStrong: Cloud Security (Sept. 25th)
IT - CxO Events

In the current global economic landscape, the imperative to achieve more with limited resources is impacting departments across organizations. Concurrently, the expansion of digital footprints presents challenges as cyber threats exploit vulnerable infrastructures. To uphold a leading-edge cyber risk program and align with business demands, organizations must explore resourceful approaches.


An essential initial stride toward effective cyber risk management is gaining comprehensive insight into the extended attack surface of the organization and its associated risks. Equally critical is the capability to articulate strategy and program effectiveness to stakeholders, including the Board. This significance has grown even more pronounced with the introduction of new SEC Regulations. As the cyber landscape evolves, the ability to navigate these complexities becomes paramount.

Why Distributed Edge Data is the Future of AI (Oct. 3rd)
Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
AI is disrupting so many domains and industries and by doing so, AI models and algorithms are becoming increasingly large and complex. This complexity is driven by the proliferation in size and diversity of localized data everywhere, which creates the need for a unified data fabric and/or federated learning.

It could be argued that whoever wins the data race will win the AI race, which is inherently built on two premises: 1) Data is available in a central location for AI to have full access to it, 2) Compute is centralized and abundant.

Edge AI though, defies these assumptions. If centralized (or in the cloud) AI is a superpower and super expert, edge AI is a community of many smart wizards. As humans, we can appreciate the power of cumulative knowledge over a central superpower. In this webinar, we will touch on:

  • The value and use cases of distributed edge AI
  • How data fabric on the edge differs from the cloud and its impact on AI
  • Edge device data privacy trade-offs and distributed agency trends
  • Privacy mechanisms for federated learning, inference, and analytics
  • How interoperability between cloud and edge AI can happen

Devops Experience 2023 (Oct. 10th)
Tuesday, October 10th, 2023: 9:00 to 3:00 PM
This year, at the sixth annual DevOps Experience, we'll take a look at how to engage cross-functional collaberation and how platform engineering and SRE improve developer experience by lessening developers' workload and enabling them to focus on what they do best: Builing and delivering high-quality code

Since DevOps first emerged more than a decade ago, developers have been pulled in a million different directions and assumed additional responsibilities-such as testing and vulnerability scanning-and mastered new skills while still building high-quality code quickly. While they've risen to the challenge, the constant juggling begs the question: Are we providing developers with the right tools, training, resources and support they need to increase productivity, avoid burnout and boost job satisfaction?

Instead of shifting left or right, let's pull developers to the center where development, security and operations teams alike can join forces, distribute the workload and restore balance.
