There will be three speakers at this event.

1. The State of Web Application Security
Grant Murphy, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions for Barracuda Networks

Presentation: It's no secret that more and more commerce is being conducted via Web applications. Web-based applications are convenient for consumers and allow vendors to get applications online quickly to reach those consumers. This trend has also created a variety of privacy and security concerns that affect all companies transacting business over the Web. Recently, Barracuda networks co-sponsored a research study conducted by the Ponemon Institute titled "The State of Web Application Security" that revealed that these concerns are keenly felt by web application administrators. However, a major disconnect exists as appropriate countermeasures to these threats are either ineffective or completely non-existent. Join us for an informative seminar to learn:

2. Executive Staff Perspectives on Cyber Security
William H Miller, Jr. (Bill Miller)

Presentation: During the last few years a number of highly publicized Cyber attacks, in both the Federal sector and commercial industry, have resulted in increased familiarity to the public. These visible assaults as well as more insidious private incursions have also resulted in deep angst among business leaders. Threats to closely guarded intellectual property and brand integrity have risen to the top of the concerns list during Board-induced Enterprise Risk Management assessments. But what trade-offs are involved in securing company or customer data? What are appropriate levels of investment and how do corporate leadership teams really view this emerging challenge? What are the factors that drive decisions towards expedient action or result in risky delay? This presentation will seek to explore Information Security and Cyber Assurance from the perspectives of the C-Suite.
