SEI Kicks Off Second Year of Webinar Series

September 30, 2009—This fall, the SEI kicks off the second year of the SEI Webinar Series, a new delivery method that brings the latest research, best practices and solutions developed at the SEI directly to the global community of software and systems engineers and security specialists. 

The  SEI Webinar Series, hosted by the SEI’s Software and Systems Process Improvement Network (SPIN), features SEI senior researchers discussing their work in cyber security, software development, system design, process improvement, risk, and acquisition. The SEI Webinar Series allows senior researchers to make their work accessible to a wider audience who can log on at no cost and participate from the convenience of a home or office computer. 

Upcoming Webinars include:

Webinar: People CMM
By Gian Wemyss and Palma Buttles-Valdez

There are two ways to participate. Users can view a webinar in real time and then engage with SEI presenters in a question and answer session that follows each webinar. A list of upcoming webinars may be viewed at www.sei.cmu.edu/events/webinars/index.cfm. Archived recordings allow users to download a recording, and watch it as many times as needed when it’s convenient. Webinars provide an online video library of the latest research from the SEI. To view archived recordings, please visit www.sei.cmu.edu/library/webinars.cfm

Shane McGraw, who started the webinar series in September 2008, said a few enhancements based on survey feedback are planned for the coming year, including offering more wide-ranging topics in software and systems engineering and cybersecurity. Respondents also stated that the live webinar schedule—the second and fourth Thursday of the month, between 1 and 2 p.m. Eastern Time—is convenient for them. 

McGraw, SEI SPIN coordinator, said the webinars are just a natural extension of the SEI’s mission to distribute the knowledge that is captured, created, and applied to the global software and systems engineering community. They allow anyone, from any location, to log in and hear a presentation by an SEI staff member on existing research or technologies while viewing accompanying slides. 

From September through June of last year, more than 7,000 people registered for 30 webinars on topics highlighting the latest work from the SEI. They included Service-Oriented Architecture and A Practical Approach for Managing Risk.

The complete schedule of upcoming webinars—as well as the archives of previous recordings—may be viewed online at www.sei.cmu.edu/events/webinars/index.cfm.
