Speaker(s): Vu Huynh

Vu's seminar is a brief introduction to Docker-based technologies and a guide on how to port legacy applications into Docker-based infrastructure and the benefits of using Docker. Docker is a software tool that allows application and their dependencies to be bundled into a virtual container that can run on any Linux server. A Windows version of Docker is also available. Using Docker provides flexibility and portability by enabling the application to be run in various locations, whether on-premises, in a cloud service.

Terry revisit his presentation from WatITis 2019: Salespeople are promising miracles for companies adopting cloud computing.  And people are buying in, rushing to move their internal IT functions to various cloud services.  However, it isn't all smiles and sunshine under the cloud.  There is risk in adopting this computing model, especially on the information security front. Terry will discuss some of the security and privacy issues that this entails and will outline the risks that have to be considered.  Look before you leap onto a cloud!
