NSW Chapter Meeting

The defender's view of security from infrastructure to applications and everything in between.

The NSW meeting this month includes a presentation titled: The analysis of security from infrastructure to applications and everything in between.

Google Hangout: http://goo.gl/fbCGZ4

Our presenter is an experienced penetration tester from a global company engaged in development, delivery, and support of advanced security. Ed will describe how an evolving threat landscape is constantly forcing the reorientation of how we defend networks. The purpose of this talk is to provide system and network administrators with an overview of common security deficiencies observed over the past 12 months.

Specifically, the talk will analyse:

  • Security from an offensive perspective;
  • Current state of infrastructure security;
  • Web application security and issues identified in off the shelf and custom applications; and
  • Effective defence through systems administration.

By the end of this talk, attendees will have an appreciation of practices they can employ in their roles as defenders.
