Fairfield/Westchester County InfoSec Group Autumn Meeting
Thursday, November 11, 2010 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
This Isn’t Your Mother’s Internet: Mitigating Web 2.0 Threats
LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter. Social networks, blogs, wikis. SAML, XML, AJAX. These terms and solutions are all part of the Web 2.0 revolution, and are (or will soon be) facts of life in the enterprise. While there are many positives to these dramatically emerging technologies, there is also the potential for your employees to disclose confidential corporate information and compromise the security of your environment. Web 2.0 is something to be embraced, but not without consideration of the risks and how to mitigate them. This session will highlight a holistic view of 2.0 with a goal of raising awareness on industry standards, best practices, and interoperability, as well as strategies for developing, implementing and enforcing a tight policy for using these technologies.
Speaker: David Sherry, CISO, Brown University
As CISO at Brown, David Sherry has institutional responsibilities to provide proactive security expertise and guidance, engineer robust security architecture, direct identity management strategy and policy, and enhance the culture of security awareness. As the university spokesman for both information security and privacy, Sherry also plays a key role in the record management program, business continuity planning, and copyright compliance and protection. Prior to moving to the higher education arena he spent several years in financial services, with responsibilities for enterprise security governance and regulatory compliance, access controls and operations, identity management, and the security awareness program. During his tenure Sherry managed his InfoSec teams to unprecedented service level and regulatory accomplishments, and recognized best-practice security processes. Mr. Sherry is a frequent conference speaker on emerging security topics and best practices, as well as a guest-lecturer throughout the academic year at several New England institutions.
