Air Force General to Outline New Cyber Security Defense Mission

Meeting Will Advance Industry Cooperation on Messaging Security

Promoting global cooperation against spam and other online abuse, the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG) will focus on critical technical and public policy issues at its fall meeting, including bot mitigation, Web messaging abuse, and mobile spam among other topics. U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. David B. Warner will keynote the three-day event, outlining the government's new military cyber security defense initiative, and several invited Internet organizations will join the meeting as MAAWG works to forge closer ties among industry, government and public policy agencies.

The MAAWG 17th General Meeting will be held in Philadelphia on Oct. 26-28 with professional development training courses on Oct. 29. The event will provide an opportunity for messaging professionals to share methodologies and ideas for curtailing online abuse.

Warner will discuss how the Air Force Space Command (AFSC), as the lead Air Force authority for cyberspace resources, is organizing, training and equipping the military's cyber security defense efforts and its potential for future relationships with private industry. The general is director of communications and information and chief information officer at Headquarters AFSC, and is responsible for integrating cyber security defense policies, architecture and capabilities.

Technical and public policy working sessions will address domain registrar anti-abuse tactics, DNS management, and senders' data exchange and customer service issues. A mobile messaging update will include an overview of the proposed mobile spam act S.788 by a U.S. Senate legislative aid, and there will be invitation-only sessions for ISPs to discuss anti-abuse techniques.

The meeting also will feature panels with representatives of other Internet security and anti-abuse organizations focusing on how the industry can best apply the special skills of each group. Invited organizations include

Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information.
