|PRESENTER:||Wim Remes, Managing Consultant for IOActive|
|PRESENTATION:||How Much Security is Enough?|
|LOCATION:||Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai|
|DATE & TIME:||Wednesday June 11, 2014 at 10:00am|
Over the past decades, we have added layer upon layer of protection on top of our most business-critical applications and infrastructures. While making them more secure, we have unwittingly (and sometimes unknowingly) increased their attack surfaces and added complexity that limits our ability to support, expand, and protect them.
In this talk, Wim Remes will focus on strategies for mapping existing infrastructures and understanding their exposure at a granular level. Drawing from historic examples and real-world experience, Wim will show the audience how to identify weaknesses, measure their potential impact, and integrate security measures in evolving infrastructures.
IOActive will also have a booth (number GP-12) in the exhibition section of the event, where guests can come meet the team and find out more about the company’s service offerings.
