"INsecurity is a conference that focuses on the practice of enterprise cybersecurity, so we wanted our keynoters and speakers to be managers and thought leaders of the security practices in their own organizations," said Tim Wilson, co-founder and editor-in-chief of Dark Reading, who is driving the content for the conference. "We think INsecurity will be a conference unlike any other, in that it will be led by speakers who've been in the trenches and know what it's like to fight the enterprise's battle against online attackers every day."

At INsecurity, attendees will have a unique opportunity to not only listen to presentations by top cybersecurity executives and topical experts, but to interact with them and discuss practical solutions to today's pressing industry issues. All three keynoters will be available to answer questions and interact with audience members. Half of the sessions at INsecurity will be Chatham House Rules discussions that allow security professionals to talk about key issues in a safe environment. There will also be opportunities for attendees to join (or form their own) small-group roundtables to explore important challenges with experts and colleagues.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
