Declan O’Riordan “Application Security”

When I speak about application security everyone seems to get the idea, but not everyone has the tenacity to read my (free) security testing procedures or development guidelines, let alone start applying the ideas themselves. This talk will start with a brief recap on the deteriorating state of application security, but instead of leaving you feeling helpless we will verbally walk through a some real-world security tests. You will gain a clear understanding of some security tests that could be done by anyone, and enough insight into the tricky ones to know when to use security experts, and how.

Robert Pritchard “Risk & Threat analysis”

Making a case for cyber security used to be difficult, but now your business case can be snippets from the front page of newspapers. In other words hacking makes headlines daily. But understanding what matters to you and your organisation is challenging, as is deciding exactly what it is you should do. How do you prevent hackers getting into your network? Is it even possible to do that completely?

The talk will look at case studies, both from the media and from the speakers own working experience, and examine how you can learn from these. It will cover the criticality of incident response, and the benefits and additional assurance proper security monitoring can bring to your business. This will all be illustrated with demos of real live security threats.
