There have never been so many vendors promoting so many different products and approaches to allow companies to transmit sensitive e-mail securely as today. This talk will first address whether companies actually need to encrypt any of their e-mail at all and, if so, why and when. It will then present a survey of the various technologies available, and a framework for helping you decide which of them is best suited to your organization's needs.

Donald McKillican (CISSP) has over twenty-five years experience in IT. For the last twelve years Don has been a member of Bell Canada's Corporate Security organization, most recently as a security architect specializing in issues such as cryptography and Internet security. Don has also been known to draw security cartoons in his spare time, but when not obsessing about security, he can be found at a piano keyboard, or trying to make sense of the history of Valois France.

On-site registration and networking begins at noon, and lunch will be served at approximately 12:20. The presentation will run from 1:00pm to 2:00pm, to be followed by an open discussion forum.

Cost for the event is $30.00 for non-members, $20.00 for ISSA members and $15.00 for students payable in advance at our web site using Paypal®, or at the door in cash or by cheque payable to "ISSA Vancouver".
