Microsoft Cyber Security: Blending engineering with policy-making for cyberspace confidence

In his lecture, Matt will discuss the evolution of the cyber security threat from: the origins of hacktivism through web defacement 15 years ago; through the emergence of Worms and their impact on business networks; and the establishment of the BotNet as a new means of organised crime; to the embedding of the targeted attack as an advanced persistent threat.

Apereo Open Academic Environment (OAE)
Description:
We are pleased to announce a special seminar about the Apereo Open Academic Environment (OAE) presented by our friends from CARET (Centre for Applied Research in Educational Technologies) at Cambridge University. Apereo OAE, which has been developed by CARET along with Georgia Tech, Research Research and others, is a brand new platform that aims to support academic collaboration and academic networking. It is being developed by the same organisation that oversees the Sakai CLE project which of course is the software which underpins WebLearn. The easiest way to explain OAE is by analogy: Universities have always had classrooms. But recently, many have invested heavily in new buildings with a mix of informal break-out areas designed to draw people together - faculty, students and administrators. This is the idea behind the OAE. It's an informal collaborative online space that sits alongside the highly structured Learning Management Systems such as Sakai CLE designed to deliver courses to students. OAE supports many types of collaborations, including research projects, ad-hoc student groups, committees, collaborative projects, etc. It's a network of people, content and groups, where files, links and collaborative documents can easily be created and shared with other people and groups, whilst being able to provide feedback and participate in discussions. OAE is a multi-tenant system, which means that it can support multiple universities on the same physical installation. Each university has its own tenancy with its own branding, skinning and users and a sort of permeable membrane around it. It's easy to keep things private to your own institution or research group, or to mix things up with the rest of the world. It has a modern architecture that will scale to millions of users and a simple, intuitive interface that does not force users to behave in a particular way.

Janet Public Access Briefing
Description:
This event aims to show how Janet and its partner, The Cloud, can support your institution in providing public access to the internet over the Janet network. Topics covered at this online briefing will include a discussion of the regulatory and the technical implications of providing public access for Janet customers. We will also hear from Janet's partner in providing public access, The Cloud. The agreement with The Cloud is the first to allow Janet Connected organisations to deliver public access to anyone who wishes to get online and who is not authenticated by any other means (such as corporate systems or eduroam). In choosing The Cloud as an approved Janet partner, we have also removed the need for our customers to engage in a time consuming and resource intense procurement and tender process, saving you time and money.
