Facilitating Cross-Cultural Collaboration in Teams
Michael Goldman - Facilitation First
The creation of international teams composed of members from multiple cultures and perspectives is now typical on many projects with the “globalization” of technology. With this extraordinary opportunity we also see the emergence of challenges that impact team effectiveness. Many team leaders are frustrated as they hit roadblocks in performance, communications and other areas. At the core is a lack of knowledge around simple engagement principles and “sensitivity” to cultural differences.
This short interactive workshop seeks to present some facilitation fundamentals and a model for understanding and leveraging cultural differences and commonalities. Participants will have time to practice or participate in a facilitation role and reflect on their own team challenges and solutions.
12:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m.
DNS: Explanation, Exploration and Troubleshooting
Carel - Spamhaus
You're working in an industry where you're surrounded by experts who do the heavy DNS lifting. But wouldn't you like to know a little bit more about DNS yourself – to communicate better, to find and fix small problems, to be more familiar with a core Internet protocol and to be able to amaze your friends at parties? If so, this introductory DNS training course is for you. The session will explain how DNS works in easy-to-understand concepts and also includes a significant hands-on portion with many tutorials.
Participants will need to have a SSH client on their system to participate in the tutorials. Windows users can use PuTTY (free at www.PuTTY.org), but please install it before coming to the session. Mac OS X users have SSH built in.
3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Advanced Care and Feeding of Spam Traps
Kelly Molloy - Cisco
This is a follow-on "advanced" session to our San Francisco 2012 and Berlin 2012 training sessions.
In 2012 you created your spam traps and by now you should be receiving some data. Now that you have this data, what can you do with it?
In this session, you'll learn how to mine your spam trap data to collect information about senders. We'll talk about what tools to use, how to find the data you want, how to determine what data might be useful, how long to keep your spam trap data, and how you can present this data within your company in an accessible but secure manner. We'll also have some Q&A time.
3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Making Practical Use of RPZ
April Lorenzen - M3AAWG Senior Technical Advisor
This session will provide a walk-through of the “AWS AMI for easy experimenting with RPZ2” open source configuration and helper scripts to maintain and share Response Policy Zones (RPZs). The library provides a virtual machine that starts up pre-configured with the latest RPZ version 2 BIND 9.9 installed and functioning with a free whitelist based on Alexa and a free blocklist based on DROP. Ms. Lorenzen is the creator of the github repo, virtual machine image and Ubuntu walk through. She works closely with RPZ2 author Vernon Schryver and architect Paul Vixie on features, testing and documentation.
This training is intended to get people actually using RPZ, skipping the painful part of the learning curve, and to let you try out the benefits. You will be able to maintain your own local white and block lists plus share your zones with others, forming community intelligence RPZones.
