19th February 2013

08:00am – 09.30am

Ross Building Foyer, Adastral Park

With Guest Speakers:

James Verniquet, Digital Asset Security – “How to get hacked and lose customers”
This will be a succinct presentation on the 5 most common attack vectors that companies in the UK have lost data, including serious breaches which have involved fines of up to £325,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Alan Garwood, Seckford Solutions – “Sharing is Protecting” – An introduction to Trusted Information Sharing”
The phrase “Sharing is Protecting” when considering security issues sounds counterintuitive. However when approached in the right way in a trusted environment, sharing information about security incidents and threats can provide a clear benefit to those taking part. In this presentation Alan will provide examples of how Trusted Information Sharing can be used to provide an IT Security “Neighbourhood Watch” for both SMEs and large companies alike.
