TOP TEN BOGUS TECH QUOTES OF THE YEAR
In a world full of security nonsense, Mr. Roberts has created a funny yet informative list of the Top 10 most outrageous security statements of the year. Taking aim at popular "solutions" around data leakage, IdM, NAC and other of-the-moment technologies, Mr. Roberts will entertain and enlighten. He will share some valuable insights from real-world users, and offer right-on-the-money assessments and analysis of why these quotes/solutions just don't work.
MAKING APPLICATIONS SECURE BY REMOVING SECURITY
The next evolutionary advancement in securing custom applications will involve removing security code from the application package. Application security has evolved from almost nonexistent to include security focused coding practices and functions. Although applications will continue to need secure coding practices such as failing to a secure mode and secure defaults, security functions such as authentication and authorization have no place in the application package. Abstraction of these functions can result in improved security and reduced cost of application development.
