2. New England Information Security Group

Thursday, December 15, 6:30 PM    Microsoft Waltham offices
TOPICS:
  <http://www.neisg.org/images/BulletSmall.gif> "Information Security in the
Next Decade," presented by Dr. Tanya Zlateva of Boston University
 
  <http://www.neisg.org/images/BulletSmall.gif> "Securing the Desktop - A
New Battlefront in Enterprise Security," from  <http://www.bit9.com/> Bit9.
Securing the network has been a key component in enterprise security. But
now the battle is being fought at the endpoint, where new unknown software
arrives every day -- whether by malicious intent, click-throughs rife with
spyware, or end users unknowingly downloading unauthorized software. We will
discuss this new "threat zone" and ways to win on the new security
battlefront.
     <http://www.neisg.org/images/BulletSmall.gif> Learn the most accurate
and effective ways to defend against today's most prevalent threats.
     <http://www.neisg.org/images/BulletSmall.gif> Understand the new vision
for enterprise endpoint security.
     <http://www.neisg.org/images/BulletSmall.gif> Understand why the
endpoint could become the new point of failure for the enterprise - and what
can be done to prevent it.
