  • 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm ☁️ UC Berkeley Cloud Computing Meetup ☁️

    Location: https://berkeley.zoom.us/j/99509777287


    | Description:

    Everyone is welcome - this is a really inclusive group! You don't have to be an expert, or already know about cloud technologies; we get together so people can learn from each other.

    CONNECT VIA ZOOM: Our Zoom connection info changes each month and is posted here in meetup invite. [Note: for security reasons attendees must be logged into a Zoom account]

    No researcher wants to wake up to a headline screaming that their research has leaked human subject data onto the Darkweb. But it's not always clear to people how to protect their key research data, and there is much pressing work to do beyond security. Ever since privacy and protection of computational data has emerged as a significant service area of focus in research computing this has been a pain point.

    At UC Berkeley, we’ve developed a secure service targeted to serve those working with sensitive information across the breadth of the research community — from Social Welfare to Genomics, from Public Health to Political Science. At the September meetup you will hear from researchers themselves. This talk highlights the journey from concept to service launch, through their eyes, with a primary focus on their experiences using the new Secure Research Data and Compute service.

    Speakers: Dr. Jennet Arcara (School of Social Welfare), Jason Christopher (Research IT), Dr. Chris Hoffman (Research IT), Liza Lutzker (School of Public Health), Joleen Locanas (Research IT and Information Services & Technology)
