Speaker:
Ricardo Ferreira, Developer Advocate, Confluent

Title:
Developing Kafka-based Apps using Confluent Cloud

Abstract:
While Apache Kafka has been unarguably successful for on-premise environments, there is a increasing trend of using Kafka in the cloud. To address this trend fully managed services like Confluent Cloud were created to allow developers leverage the most of Kafka but without the operational burden that maintaining clusters by themselves can bring.

This talk will explain in details the first steps to start using Confluent Cloud, how to write producer and consumer applications using Java and Go, as well as how to create event streaming applications using the managed version of ksqlDB. This talk has no slides and the speaker will create everything from scratch while walking through the code and resources created. Join us if you love hands-on talks!

Bio:
Ricardo is a Developer Advocate at Confluent, the company founded by the creators of Apache Kafka. He has over 22 years of experience working with software engineering, where he specialized in SOA, Big Data, Cloud, and Serverless. Prior to Confluent, he worked for other vendors such as Oracle, Red Hat and IONA Technologies, as well as several consulting firms. While not working he enjoys grilling steaks on his backyard with his family and friends, where he gets the chance to talk about anything that is not IT related. Currently, he lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, with his wife, and son. Follow Ricardo on Twitter: @riferrei

Once you choose to learn this additional skill, you'll face some big decisions about how to invest your time, energy, and money. But the payoff is literally life-changing: we know that you can land a high paying tech job, even if you have no previous experience. We've seen students change their whole trajectory after just a few months of learning, mentorship, and career coaching. And we want you to feel confident taking the next step.

This is an online event.

Dear Rob,

Please join ISSA KC Virtual chapter meeting on August 27th!

 

Topic:

"SIEMple Steps to Detect, Investigate Advanced Unknown Threats, and Respond"

 

Summary:

With limited budgets, resources, and various tools, many security teams struggle to detect even basic threats and attacks. Statistics show nearly half of all breach victims have zero visibility they've been attacked, with the average breach to detect time around 196 days, or until they have been notified by an outside party. During this session and product demonstration, we'll share common challenges security teams experience and provide you with how to detect, investigate advanced unknown threats, and quickly respond using cyber kill chain.

 

The topics of this presentation include:

  • Uncover potential threats in your environment with real-time insight into indicators of compromise (IOS) and malicious host
  • Point and click search for efficient threat hunting
  • Incorporating automation and orchestration into your SOC to make your cybersecurity and incident response team more productive
  • How to collect and secure data storage without volume-based pricing
  • Enhance your cloud security with extended controls\

Date and Time:
Thursday, August 27, 2020
Presentation and Q&A: 12:00 to 1:00 pm

1 CPE

Location:
Zoom Meeting
