SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2012 Speaker: Daniel A. Libby is the Director and Chief Examiner for Digital Forensics, Inc.; Topic: Information System Security: Trending Today.
Serious cybercrimes are carried out by professional criminals against businesses, organizations, and individuals in their homes for financial gains, using such computer tools as viruses, worms, malware, and crimeware. All systems connected to the Internet are subject to such attacks if unprotected. We are currently seeing a resurgence of the use of the telephone as the initial contact medium. (Did anyone see the recent episode of the "60 Minutes" television program in which a security expert used a telephone to hack into the computer system of an automobile and lock up the brakes while the car was being driven on a test track?) In his January, 2012, presentation to SDARI, our speaker gave us an overview of this threat. This month's presentation will educate us about the current, up-to-date, threats to information systems and provide practical information on how to protect yourself and your information from security threats.
