DuPont, Geisinger Health System, Oracle and WesCorp to Discuss Zero-Day Exploits at InfoSecurity 2004
Computer worm and virus attacks are costing global businesses billions of dollars in damages. The swiftness and severity of these attacks have left CSOs questioning the defense of their networks. How can we prepare our networks against zero day exploits? How do we protect against both external and internal threats? Can we anticipate trends?
Gerhard Eschelbeck of Qualys will present data from his “Laws of Vulnerabilities” research, illustrating the trends in security threats to both internal and external systems. A panel of security experts from DuPont, Geisinger Health System, Oracle and WesCorp will discuss the real-world impact of these trends and how CSOs can protect their networks and their companies. Pete Lindstrom, Research Director at Spire Security, will lead the discussion.
