Here's what I'll be presenting at LS11

By Andrew Pollack on 12/03/2010 at 08:14 AM EST

This year at Lotusphere 2011 I'll be presenting the following:

1. On Jumpstart Day, I'll be presenting with Gab Davis about security. The session is called "Defense against the Dark Arts". Gab has been doing a lot of work on this already, and I'll be jumping in to work with her on it in about a week when I'm visiting with them. For the last several years, we've done our A-Z of Security in this space. The problem has been that it is increasingly difficult to cover so much material in under two hours. Gab's idea was to take a different viewpoint, and instead focus on the risks that are out there and what we need to do to mitigate them wherever possible. Instead of a laundry list of security settings, this is more focused on specific threats. I think it will be awesome.

2. IBM Lotus Domino Server & Application Performance in the Real World -- This is an expansion of what I did last year with a whole bunch of additional (and very specific) information. The "real" title here is "Perform better in the Server Room" but that wouldn't fly for the LS venue. This is both application development and administration. There's a lot of server configuration stuff here -- including hardware, SAN and Virtualization; there's a lot of setup information about http caching and so on; and there's a lot of application development performance information here. This one is about 30% more content than last year's so it should be just packed full of stuff.

3. Performing Your Own IBM Lotus Domino Security Review -- This one was packed last year with people and with content, and I've added more content and re-organized it a little bit. The focus here will be on how to go about assessing the security and stability of your own domino environment and applications, and it has some technical detail and also some management detail. It will walk through the process I use as well as the questions I ask and areas of investigation I focus on when I come in to do security assessments at client sites. This was well attended in the past and the reviews I've read have been very positive, so the expanded version this year should go well.

If you have things you'd like to see me add to any of these, please let me know.

All three sound good, but I'm especially looking forward to the "Defense
against the Dark Arts".

Congratulations on getting picked.

Can't wait to hear both of them. Information I could use. Thanks!

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything.

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
