  • A key-note speech by Vivek Kundra, the nation’s first Federal CIO; and
  • Presentations by executives from Google, Lockheed Martin, OSD, IBM, HP, Gartner, TIBCO, NSA, NDU, and DISA.

I am also honored to be one of the presenters.

This symposium will feature a vendor fair and several opportunities for interactive participation by attendees. Topics will include:

  • Future cloud computing expectations
  • Risks and challenges
  • Lessons learned, and
  • Next steps.

The college will also broadcast live, streaming video of the conference.

The IRM College and DOD CIO will also co-host the “Web 2.0 Cyber Security Solutions” symposium on Thursday, September 24, 2009. This second event will focus on solutions for solving some of the complex security challenges in the arena of applications such as mash-ups, blogs, wikis, and virtual spaces. In conjunction with the September event, the college will be hosting its annual Academic Partner Open House, where more than 30 academic partners will be on hand to discuss their degree programs with interested individuals who stop by their tables.

The IRM College, a critical component of The National Defense University, grew from a small IT school focused on technology and its applied uses in 1988, to a world-class graduate institution offering an array of programs with national and international influence. The college’s certificates lay a strong foundation in critical information leadership topics, issues, and solutions. The IRM College fosters interagency and international collaboration and communication by providing learning opportunities for approximately 3,000 mid-to-high-level leaders across government annually.
