Software and Cyber Solutions Symposium 2019: Benefits and Risks of Cloud Computing

Moving applications and data to the cloud has many benefits, including lower costs, accelerated computing speed, and the rapid provisioning of systems. The federal government is working to leverage the “anywhere, anytime” benefits of the cloud and has made cloud-adoption a central tenet of its IT modernization strategy. But choosing cloud services without becoming fully informed of the risks can also expose you to myriad commercial, financial, technical, legal, and compliance risks.

Who Should Attend

Anyone working with projects or programs that are using or planning to use cloud computing services. This includes DoD or other government program managers, project managers, software engineers, and contractors.

Attendees will

  • hear leading experts in the field of software engineering discuss methods, technical innovations, and practices
  • find innovative approaches to the challenges within their organizations
  • network and participate in informal “Ask an Expert” sessions

Continuing Education Credits

Continuing Education Units (CEU) will be issued after the SCSS concludes to those who attend the symposium’s plenary session on September 10 (.65 CEUs) and/or the tutorials on September 11 (each tutorial is worth .30 CEUs). If the participant attends the plenary day and two tutorials, they will receive 1.2 CEUs.
