Diana Nyad

Record-Breaking Athlete , ,


At the age of 64, in her fifth and final attempt, Diana Nyad successfully fulfilled her lifelong dream of completing the 110-mile swim from Cuba to Florida on September 2, 2013. Upon completing her grueling 53-hour journey, a breathless Nyad told the world, “I have three messages. One is we should never ever give up. Two is you are never too old to chase your dreams. And three is it looks like a solitary sport, but it takes a team.” Nyad has never been one to quit. In July of 2010, at the age of 60, she began her “Xtreme Dream” quest of swimming from Cuba to Florida, a task she had failed to finish thirty years previously. When asked her motivation, she replied, “Because I’d like to prove to the other 60-year-olds that it is never too late to start your dreams.” Nyad was unsuccessful in her quest in 2010 and tried two more times 2011 and 2012 before completing the historic swim in 2013. Back in the 1970’s, Nyad was the greatest long-distance swimmer in the world. Her world records, such as circling Manhattan Island and crossing the 102.5 miles between the Bahamas and Florida, have led to inductions to many Halls of Fame, such as the International Women’s Sports Hall of Fame. Nyad became a prominent sports broadcaster, filing compelling reports for NPR, ABC’s Wide World of Sports, Fox Sports, and The New York Times. She has written three books and speaks French and Spanish fluently. Nyad has also earned the reputation of a uniquely passionate and entertaining public speaker, earning standing ovations with a broad spectrum of audiences. In her 2015 memoir, Find a Way, Diana engages us with a unique, passionate story of this heroic adventure and the extraordinary life experiences that have served to carve her unwavering spirit. She recently debuted the one-woman show, Onward! The Diana Nyad Story, in Los Angeles and Key West. Directed and adapted by Joshua Ravetch, who helped shape Carrie Fisher’s show Wishful Drinking, Onward! has received praise among the theatre community.

Levi Strauss & Co.

In this age of organizations scrambling to finally include identity as the core of their security strategy we still divide the world into a fictitious construct of “insiders” and “outsiders”. Phishing has exposed the truth of what many already knew; that an “outsider” does not truly exist once internal credentials have been breached. That “outsider” is now fully an “insider” and due to our security frameworks still being highly oriented towards protecting the perimeter, monitoring and management of internal user credentials is still highly deficient in most companies. Instead of thinking about “insiders” and “outsiders”, it is time to acknowledge that there are no more “outsiders”. There are only actors that you are in relationship with and those you are not yet in relationship with. Learn how you can rethink the problem of identity and uncover new methods and approaches to protect your company by attending this session, led by the former global head of identity for JPMorgan Chase and current Executive Advisory consultant for Optiv, Richard Bird, and Colin Anderson, Global Chief Information Security Officer at Levi Strauss & CO.

Managing identities in any organization is a challenge, but it is a compounding exercise when doing that with identities not coming from HR (e.g. contractors, contingent workers, or partners). The requirements for onboarding, offboarding, and governing their access is necessarily different from your employees.

To simplify development and deployment, you want everything in the same artifact, so you put on your Angular app "inside" and your Spring Boot app, right? But what if you could create your Angular app as a standalone app and make cross-origin requests to your API? This session shows how to develop with Java 8, Spring Boot, Angular 4, and TypeScript. You'll learn how to create REST endpoints with Spring MVC, Spring Data REST, configure Spring Boot to allow CORS, and create an Angular app to display its data. We'll also touch on microservices, security/authentication, and deploying to Cloud Foundry.
