Going on the Offensive - Proactive Measures in Securing YOUR Company
Dave Kennedy

AIDE 2012

Description: Where do you start? Where am I most at risk? How do I build a program that can withstand an attack? Asked any of these questions in your INFOSEC career? This presentation will focus on proactive measures for companies to increase their overall security posture within a few small changes. Security is a continual progression of constant enhancements. During the presentation, I'll show live demonstrations of common and sophisticated attacks and how to protect against them. Most importantly, I'll show how to build your security program to withstand and detect attacks. Learn how to defend your company and protect what really matters -- your companies ability to generate revenue. This talk is intended for all audiences and will be demonstrating technical avenues for attack as well as security program development.
