Dodging the Bullet - Update on Latest in IT Security Best Practices

Speaker:Mike Harrop,

IT security is something that we all need to be aware of and to utilize since, whether we like it or not, our computer systems, wireless terminals and telephone devices, and even our removable storage devices are constantly under attack from threats that are ever-more sophisticated and that are continually evolving.

This presentation will review some of the recent developments in security threats and available countermeasures to neutralize those threats.

It is the intention to include a number of short up-to-the minute video presentations (with discussion to follow) along with an update (and demonstration) on some of the available freeware/shareware products. Lastly there will be a brief update on the latest developments in security standards.


Mike Harrop has many years experience in IT standards and international cooperative initiatives, particularly in the areas of IT security and on-line government. He currently serves as Rapporteur for the Communications Security Project of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T) Study Group 17, which has overall security coordination responsibility across all Study Groups of the ITU-T.
