Please RSVP.

Abstract: The US Department of Defense yearns to adopt a private cloud, but concerns about security in the cloud hampers efforts to migrate to a private cloud. The benefits are huge -- DoD spends over $50B supporting applications in the traditional fashion. DoD yearns for the cost savings as well as the other benefits of migrating to a private cloud.
Al Mink, in his role as Government Outreach for AFCEA, (a nonprofit organization dedicated to information technology in the US National Security space) is exploring the security challenges of a private cloud for DoD as well as for insights into the best way forward for DoD in this new space. Al is leading a technology exchange on this topic on November 22. Al is an MIT grad in Computer Science and spent 21 years in DoD before moving to a second career industry. He's also an engaging speaker and likes interactive engagements. So don't miss the presentation Oct 29 at Noon -- this will not only be an informative session, but you'll have an opportunity through your discussion with Al to influence the debate in DoD about Cloud and Cloud security.
