Securing the Internet for a Web 2.0 Collaborative Culture presented at AUScert 2010

by Gerhard Eschelbeck,

Summary : Gerhard’s presentation will discuss the convergence of the latest Web 2.0 and Social Media based threats and the Malware economy. The presentation will provide the audience with technical, behavioural and political insight into what the latest threats are and what the New Media providers are doing to protect their users.
Particular attention will be provided to new cloud computing platforms in terms of their potential as a platform to launch attacks (I.e. Facebook, Twitter) and how cloud computing technology is emerging as the best practice technique for protecting both enterprise and consumers.
Gerhard will also provide an updated view on the state of the overall threat ecosystem and the latest information about the size and velocity of the current threats and why cloud computing will polarise risk mitigation strategies to the cloud and endpoint.
Finally as the adoption of cloud computing is becoming mainstream Gerhard will discuss emerging concerns about cloud computing and questions over resiliency and jurisdictional control.
