First Podcast: Information Security 101, Part One
We have started to provide podcasts on information security and privacy. The first one is just a simple "proof of concept" effort, a basic 27 minute audio introduction to information security. There is a short set of slides that can be viewed in conjunction with the podcast, but the podcast will still make sense without them. Download the slides here. (Microsoft PowerPoint PPS format)
Podcast#3, Creating Effective Information Security Trianing and Awareness Programs from the Ziff-Davis Virutal Security Trade Show is online and matching slides can be downloaded by clicking here.
Coming soon: Podcast#4, The Privacy Landscape; Podcast #5, Security Breaches Will Abate Only If...

4th Annual Enterprise Security Asia:

The conference site is here. An Adobe PDF of the conference brochure is here.

Currently enjoying strong economic growth, Malaysia is America's tenth largest trading partner and probably one of the world's most ethnically diverse countries. That made for a very interesting session on business privacy.
Privacy Session Slides are here (Microsoft Powerpoint PPS format).
Our trip to Interop Moscow 2006 was interesting to say the least. The organizers had managed to put a whole gaggle of American and Europe security names were on the agenda, including Winn Schwartau and Kevin Mitnick. Stephen chose to talk about dataflation, the idea that seemingly endless rounds of security breaches are exposing ever larger quantities of personal data, with potentially serious consequences for electronic commerce, the wider economy, and society at large.

Speaking of speaking:
We are happy to supply or help you identify speakers on all aspects of information security to help you further the goal of educating all segments of society, and all sectors of business, on information security issues and challenges. Note that for independent security experts time is money and it is normal for them to charge a fee for speaking, plus travel expenses.
