9:30 – 10:00      “Increasing Capacity and Managing Data Center Growth through with Energy Efficiency Methods”

Dr. Mukesh Khattar, Global Energy Efficiency Manager for Oracle Corporation will discuss recent research that will have you thinking twice about how you should design and operate your data centers.  Mukesh will extend an invitation to our members and guests to help establish and develop solutions for the Mission Critical Industry. 

10:00 – 10:45    “Managing Security Risk through Surety Methods - An Owners/ Operators Assessment Methodology to Mitigate (physical) Retained-Risk in Data Centers”

Dr. John H. Strothman, President of Strothman Associates, Inc. of Schaumberg, IL, will focus on the transfer of methods from the National Laboratories to Critical IT Facilities to assess and mitigate high-consequence risks. John specializes in Surety Engineering and Methods, is licensed in risk assessment methods, emanating through work at Sandia National Laboratories ‘Center for Security Science and Technology’.  His approach facilitates the recognition of high-impact systematic flaws (especially those of malevolent intent) in the management of critical infrastructures that elude decision-makers using other methods.

11:00 – 11:45    “Biological, Chemical, and Microwave Hazards in the Data Center” 

Dr. Richard Jimenez, President of Applied Sciences Laboratory, Inc., Albuquerque, NM is a science and technology investigator active with the assessment of biological, chemical and high power microwave vulnerabilities in government and industry critical facilities.  Richard will explain the risks of these hazards as they relate to data centers and critical facilities, and present realistic solutions for their mitigation.
