So, it’s that time of the year again – Security Summit 2010 in Sandton, Johannesburg. Items on the agenda include:
- The business of security – Threat horizon 2010 and beyond, legislation (PPI), risk, compliance, standards (PCI), security metrics, social networking, web application security, web services, web 2.0 and more.
- Technical/operational security – Top 10 hacks, botnets, trojans, smartphone security, cloud computing, virtualisation, SaaS, practical return-oriented programming techniques, web application server attacks, defeating SSL, exploiting Microsoft DEP and more.
In addition, there should be
- Web Application Hacking & Software Development Lifecycle and
- a Threat Modelling Workshop
I’ll be posting updates and commentrary here and elsewhere at synch.cc as the proceedings unfold, with comments and commentary as required or warranted.
Let’s hope it is a worthwhile experience filled with insight and presentations that are not just vendor-speak…
