Adjusting Our Defenses For 2012

  • Paul Henry
  • Wednesday, June 6th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

How do you top 2011 for the hacks at HBGary, RSA, Sony, Epsilon, Comodo, DigiNotar, the never-ending hactivism by Anonymous, the discovery of DuQu ? Son of Stuxnet, and the rise of Android Malware?

You start out 2012 by casually scanning QR-Codes, by not addressing the explosive growth of BYOD, by ignoring VoIP Security risks, by not addressing the growing risks in Virtualization, by still relying on clearly outdated, ineffective, obsolete defenses and by foolishly thinking that your company is to small to be a target.

This presentation discuses the current malware and hacking trends as we move into 2012 and how our defenses must be adjusted to counter the evolving threat landscape.
