CFMS Breakfast Series - Security in the Cloud

8th Nov

CFMS Breakfast Series - Security in the Cloud

The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS) is holding a facilitated breakfast event on the topic of Security in the Cloud, taking place on 8th November 2016, 09.00 - 11.00. 

The event is targeted towards organisations large or small, whether taking first steps towards considering hosting software in the cloud, to those already on this journey who are looking for useful tips. With evident business and operational benefits of cloud, we will be discussing the security questions you should ask, through to useful tools from an end user perspective. Presented as three topics, the event will cover:

  • Considerations for the use of cloud services for simulation: What should you consider when making use of cloud services for scientific simulations, the questions that should be asked when making use of public cloud services

  • The use of ELK for monitoring access and user behaviour on multi-tenanted HPC clusters. A useful tool for event collection and analysis, with low barriers to entry reference cost which is secure and reliable

  • How you can secure your simulations when running HPC on-demand - an end-user perspective of securing an online HPC portal

To register for the event, complete the form below - places will be limited. We hope to see you there!
