use the SEI Blog to inform you about the latest work at the SEI, so
this week I'm summarizing some video presentations recently posted to
the SEI website from the SEI Technologies Forum.
This virtual event held in late 2011 brought together participants from
more than 50 countries to engage with SEI researchers on a sample of
our latest work, including cloud computing, insider threat, Agile
development, software architecture, security, measurement, process
improvement, and acquisition dynamics. This post includes a description
of all the video presentations from the first event, along with links
where you can view the full presentations on the SEI website.

has devoted extensive time and effort to defining meaningful metrics
and measures for software quality, software security, information
security, and continuity of operations. The ability of organizations to
measure and track the impact of changes—as well as changes in trends
over time—are important tools to effectively manage operational
resilience, which is the measure of an organization’s ability to perform
its mission in the presence of operational stress and disruption. For
any organization—whether Department of Defense (DoD), federal civilian
agencies, or industry—the ability to protect and sustain essential
assets and services is critical and can help ensure a return to normalcy
when the disruption or stress is eliminated. This blog posting
describes our research to help organizational leaders manage critical
services in the presence of disruption by presenting objectives and
strategic measures for operational resilience, as well as tools to help
them select and define those measures.

Labor Day from all of us here at the SEI. I’d like to take advantage of
this special occasion to keep you apprised of some recent technical
reports and notes from the SEI. It’s part of an ongoing effort to keep you informed about our latest work. These reports highlight the latest work of SEI technologists in software architecture, operational resilience, standards-based automated remediation, and acquisition.
This post includes a listing of each report, author/s, and links where
the published reports can be accessed on the SEI website.
