Bernie Acre :: Cyber Security Awareness Program – Why? Where to Start? How do we get Where?

Bernie Acre will talk about what a Cyber Security Awareness Program is. One of the key elements to remember is that an awareness program really is not about “awareness.” An awareness program is about training and changing employee behavior enough that it increases your team’s ability to consciously make more secure decisions.

Bernie Acre is the Chief Information Officer at the City of Bryan. He has been involved at numerous levels of technology for 38 years. Bernie Acre served in the USAF for 20 years, all in technology, and spent 18 years working in the government administration industry, in a combination of municipal and electric utilities. He is skilled in Budgeting, Operations Management, Analytical Skills, Government, and Contractors.

Dave Jones & Chris Zimmerman :: Docker

Dave Jones and Chris Zimmerman will speak about Docker.  They will discuss the problems Docker solves for businesses and institutions, and they will demonstrate a sample Docker deployment.  If your business or institution could benefit from better testing platforms, improved scalability, DevOps efficiency improvements, reduced downtime or more realistic development environments, Docker may be part of the solution.  Docker is freely available, and was rapidly adopted by the software engineering and systems administration communities as “state-of-the-art” after its 2013 release.

Dave has more than twenty five years of professional experience in programming, software design and general consulting.  Chris is a
recent (2017) graduate of Grove City College, with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science — while in college he developed a strong interest
in DevOps, distributed systems and scalability issues and was part of a team that won college-level entrepreneurship awards, all of which
contributed to his interest in Docker.  Dave and Chris are both on the technical staff at Knowledge Based Systems, a consulting firm headquartered in College Station, with offices around the country.
