 "Vulnerability Management and Threat Analysis Modeling"

18 December 2007
10:30 - 13.30 hrs


Dear All,




We have the pleasure of inviting you to the first Security Forum meeting
jointly organized by NASSCOM and Data Security Council of India (DSCI) on
"Vulnerability Management by Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, Senior research
Scientist, New Mexico Tech University and "Threat Analysis & Modeling" by
Mr. Dharmesh Mehta, Technical Analyst, MASTEK on Tuesday December 18, 2007
between 10:00 hrs.  to 13:30 hrs. at The All India Plastics Manufacturer's
Association, AIPMA House, A-52, Street No. 1, MIDC, Marol, Andheri East,
Mumbai - 400 093.


Application Security has been emerging as a major concern for all
organizations. There have been efforts to address security of the
application at all layers of Software Development Lifecycle. Most of the
Indian IT companies today address Application Security issues by
Vulnerability Analysis or Penetration Testing. Threat Analysis and Modeling
helps to address security issues at design phase. The talks will cover how
an organization can get a clear understating of current security posture
(idea) through vulnerability assessments of what they are trying to prevent
and what technical capabilities their adversaries have, followed by
consolidating vulnerability assessments reports performed using multiple
tools that often generate different results for the same vulnerability. The
speakers will also present a proactive approach (Common Hacker Attack
Technique) that helps eliminate false positives and false negatives that
assist in eliminating security weaknesses in their information systems
before they can be exploited.
