*Speaker: Lawrence Dobranski, CISSP-ISSAP, CISM, CSSLP* - VoIP Security:
VoIP is not data

To manage costs and reduce risks, firms are considering moving to hosted,
managed, or self provided VoIP services. Transitioning from traditional
voice services to VoIP services introduces new risks, but provides
additional services and capabilities. Organizations need to consider these
risks and the appropriate mitigation strategies as they make the business
decisions regarding VoIP services. VoIP Platforms offer an excellent
environment to deliver vertically integrated applications but they have
specific risks that must be mitigated. To understand these risks associated
with the various flavors of VoIP it is necessary to have a basic
understanding of VoIP. Treating VoIP as just another data flow will not
expose the unique security requirements and issues associated with this
real-time communications system. This presentation will provide an overview
of VoIP from a security practitioner perspective, its unique architectural
constructs, threat and risk considerations, implications for application
development and recommended best practices.
