This talk will showcase new capabilities we have added to some of the key networking APIs for Windows apps. We will cover new features added to our JSON, HTTP, Background Transfer and Sockets APIs. These features empower you, the developer, to write apps that send or receive data faster and can efficiently process that data even when your app is not in the foreground. Speakers: Himadri Sarkar, Michael Bishop, Sidharth Nabar.
The rise of public cloud computing has brought with it a new set of security considerations that are not widely understood. With a unique perspective from working on the security systems of a public cloud, Mark describes public cloud service provider and cloud customer threats, including malicious insiders, shared technology, data breaches, and data loss. For each, he assesses the risks and explores the value of mitigations like encryption-at-rest, encryption-in-flight, and other security best practices, separating hype from reality so that you can make educated decisions as your organization moves to the cloud.
