Daniel Prince - Show Me The Risk
This presentation will take you on a short trip down Risk Management Lane examining Assets and Threats. The idea is to give you an overview of what is necessary to fully understand the security issues your organisation faces. As part of this a basic tool will be presented that you can use to evaluate the risks your organisation faces right now and can form the basis of further risk investigation. As a parting gift, the top three most important security risk areas that your company should be thinking about right now will be presented.
Philippe Jan - Security Myths and Ethical Hacking
To protect our information assets we need to understand the trade offs between security, usability and costs. By exploring the hacking lifecycle, we aim at raising our awareness of the threats we face and thereby better protect our infrastructures.
Dave Winpenny - IT Security Equals Productivity
Security considerations in small- and medium-sized businesses must go beyond traditional spam and anti-virus solutions. Organizations need to open their eyes to myriad other threats that could hit them hard and cripple their operations. Implementing security is no longer influenced by technical requirements alone; there are productivity and cost elements to be factored in. The correlation between security and productivity cost is stronger than ever.
