Two months ago, we have organized an introductory talkabout Software Defined Network. As SDN and NFV play an important role in IaaS Cloud computing, we would like to organize another talk about SDN.
This month we have invited Mr Ian Christofis, Managing Principal Consultant of Thales Critical Information Systems and Cybersecurity to deliver a talk entitled “Security Implications of Software Defined Networking and Network Function VIrtualisation”.
In this talk, the speaker will talk about the security implications of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV). This session will briefly introduce SDN and NFV, and why these technologies are important, then discuss the pros and cons of SDN & NFV from a security perspective.
Please do not miss this opportunity to learn from the expert and get connected with your peers.
Participants can claim 1.5 CPE.
