Calyx are hosting their Security Seminar on April the 23rd in the Burlington Hotel.  I have been invited to be the first speaker of the day and will be discussing “Emerging Threats in Security: challenges and statistics for 2009”.   Given the rapidly changing economic and information security landscapes my challenge will be to highlight the relevant items in my talk.

The seminar boasts an interesting line-up and will focus on the following topics:

  • Cloud computing
  • The changing nature of threats
  • Virtualisation in the context of Information Security
  • Intrusion prevention
  • Managed services
  • Cost savings for IT departments
