Feeling Vulnerable?


Do you avoid Internet banking? Do you avoid taking the same route to work each day? Do you deploy impersonators while shopping to distract would-be assassins? Do you wear a bullet proof hat!?

Well, then you sound like the kind of person Jamie is looking for to attend his Melbourne Security Interchange on the 16th of April, 2007 from 1730 – 1930 (see my use of military time!! Very secure!) at the Microsoft offices @ Level 5, 4 Freshwater Place, Southbank.

If you would like to attend, simply email Jamie on jamiesh at microsoft dot com.

And make sure no one follows you! And wear your loudest Aramid fiber Hawaiian shirt!

    This month’s topic ‘Taking the Religion out of Information Security Vulnerabilities’ presented by Jeff Jones, Security Strategy Director, Microsoft Corporation. http://blogs.technet.com/security

    The session will start with comparisons for various operating systems covering vulnerabilities and days of risk. Using these comparisons as a reference point, we’ll have a group discussion concerning the underlying mechanics of open source, closed source, commercial Linux, full disclosure, responsible disclosure etc and how it all works together to produce the results we can observe.
