Myths, Mistakes & Outright Lifes / PCI 101 – November 28, 2007

Topic: Myths, Mistakes and Outright Lies
Speaker: Kellman Meghu
A lighthearted look at common pitfalls to building out a network security architecture, this presentation does not intend to be all encompassing, but to encourage people to reconsider and re-evaluate the responsibilities of network security. Open discussion on techniques, tricks and tips is encouraged. Using a subjective threat guide, various policy based deployments are examined at a high level to measure risk versus cost. Sometimes we spend so much to accomplish so little; other times we get so much with very little cost. Assessing how we manage and deploy our security does not have to be a complex task, but it does need to be done at a regular pace. I invite you to compare your own situation, with some real life scenarios depicted in this presentation.
