Conflicker and Security Awareness
Speaker: Rob Slade
Security Awareness: #conficker FTW! Or Why Twitter is NOT the "Information Security Management Handbook"
Rob Slade has been researching malware for more than twenty years, now, trying to get people (and even security professionals) to pay attention to the realities of viruses and other programmatic nasties, and can possibly be forgiven for being rather cynical and a total downer as a presentation speaker. He has some security resources at http://victoria. tc.ca/techrev/ rms.htm , is trying to keep the Vancouver Security SIG alive by putting more into http://www.infosecb c.org/links , opines at http://blogs. securiteam. com/index. php/archives/ author/p1/ and http://blog. isc2.org/ isc2_blog/ slade/index. html , and, just to prove that Web 2.0 really *is* dangerous, tweets at http://twitter. com/rslade
On-site registration and networking begins at noon, and lunch will be served at approximately 12:15. The presentation will run from 1:00pm to 2:00pm, to be followed by an open discussion forum. Members and non-members of the ISSA are welcome but space is limited. Cost for the event is $35.00 for non-members, $25.00 for ISSA members and $20.00 for students payable in advance at our web site using PaypalŪ, or at the door in cash or by cheque payable to “ISSA Vancouver”. RSVP to to guarantee your seat. Please note that we require 72 hours notice of any cancellations, or you will be invoiced for the event since we are required to finalize the food orders.
Please note that the TCC has a business-casual dress code, and contact us in advance if you have special dietary requirements or would like wheel chair accessible parking so that we can make the necessary arrangements on your behalf.
