Security Review & Outlook:The Web Has Shifted, Is Your Network Ready

Information security remains a critical piece of the enterprise infrastructure, and one of the most active areas is happening on the Web. While advances such as social networking sites like Facebook, Web applications like Twitter and Flickr, and commerce sites like Craigslist and eBay are growing in popularity, the number of threats to end users also are rising.

In this section you will learn:

1. Five fundamental shifts on the Web
2. Anatomy and break down of Web 2.0 attacks such as clickjacking, Cross-site scripting and Request Forgery
3. Current Web security Gaps and why traditional URL filtering isn't enough.
4. How to protect and control your remote users accessing the Web via laptops or mobile device.

That said, the Web is a serious threat to Internet users and corporate networks, and traditional security approaches can’t keep up. Join us for this interactive discussion around what’s happened in 2009, where we are today, what we can expect in this vulnerable area going forward, and key tips for protecting your network and your users.
