In a little bit over two weeks Brains will start to explode in New Orleans. I don’t have the count but I haven’t gotten the cease and desist order yet so I’ll assume that there are a few seats left. What’s keeping you? http://www.conference2012.sbsmigration.com/events/session_presenter/
We’ve added a Lunch session with special guest and sponsor Lawrence Teo. (no break at the Brain Explosion!) Lawrence is best known to the SMB community as co-founder of Calyptix Security. In addition to being the lead developer and brain child of the Access Enforcer, Lawrence is also a PhD in Information Security and contributor to Linux Journal. He’s very active in various Linux and OpenBSD communities. Here’s what Lawrence is going to talk with us about during lunch at the Brain Explosion.
Your First and Last Line of Defense: Where do we go from here?
The prevalence of today’s Internet threats means you could very likely be hacked and not even know it. Your edge firewall that filters traffic in and out of your network now serves as both your first and last line or defense. This role makes your firewall more critical than ever before as security experts are encouraging the industry to focus on damage control just as much as prevention. Is your current firewall adequate for today’s threats? Do you know if your firewall is doing its job correctly? Can we as a community do more to secure ourselves and those who depend on us? In this talk, we will discuss the current state of firewalls in light of today’s sophisticated threats and explore the ground breaking application of information sharing for enhanced security.
And for those of you feeling Cloudy…
I’ll have a drawing of two copies of Working with Microsoft Office 365 by Bret Hill. I did the tech edit on this book and O’Reilly has donated a couple of copies to the Brain Explosion. If you aren’t familiar with how to get an Office 365 account setup and what features it contains then this book will be great help to you.
See you in New Orleans!
