Talk 1: Who’s watching the gatekeeper?
What is the best way to monitor the activities of your privileged users (system administrators!)? This evenings discussion will cover:

  • How to address the administrative control audit and investigation challenge

  • How to leverage SIEM Technology to supplement the effort
  • Practical techniques to secure your network

Talk 2:  Data Recovery
ARE YOU A HERO OR A VILLAN?
ARE YOU A PROFESSIONAL OR A RUSSIAN ROULETTE PLAYER?
ARE YOU A CAUSE OF DATA LOSS OR A SOLUTION PROVIDER?
The number one cause of data loss is hardware failure. The number two reason is human error and much, if not most of it is caused or compounded by technicians.

This presentation is meant to inform you of many of the reasons for data loss, how to minimize the risk of loss and how to maximize the chance of a successful, cost-effective recovery when losses do occur.

You will be presented with information that every professional computer technician should know; but has never been taught.

Speaker: R. Douglas Coughey, President, Recovery Force Inc .
