September Meetup - When prevention fails!

Title: When prevention fails!

Abstract: The technical security solutions you can buy will ultimately not be 100% successful. Therefore it is useful to think about techniques post compromise, and what you have to do to be in a position to respond meaningfully when a control (like IPS) fails.

Speaker: Dean Frye is the technical director for Asia Pacific at Sourcefire, responsible for the security engineering team. He has over 15 years' experience in networking and security, authoring a number of whitepapers, and is an experienced practitioner in security operations incident management.

Purpose: SAGE-AU NSW meets every third Tuesday night in Sydney, to bring together system administrators, ICT professionals, computer/network programmers/administrators and related people. Visitors welcome; bring a friend or colleague. Please consider the benefits of becoming a member:

    Help! I cannot attend the meeting but could someone who will and works in/near the CBD help bring my camera equipment bag (photo link enclosed) so others can record the talk?

    None of the regular organisers/assistants can conveniently get to it and I would like to avoid going to Google if I can hand it over for pickup at my work lobby reception 100 Market St. or in person if you want to meet/catch up over lunch [masked])? Thanks.

      Actually, ignore that. I've have just been told the speaker has requested the presentation not be recorded. Slides may or not be available afterwards but better attend if you want to hear it, enjoy :-)
