Next Meeting Wednesday, April 24, 2013 7PM Symantec Offices, Culver City

  • Speaker 1: Tin Zaw
  • Topic: Tales from the Crypt(o): Lessons About Secrecy from Julius Caesar to Moxie Merlinspike
  • Bio: Tin Zaw is the former president of OWASP Los Angeles chapter.

  • Speaker 2: Albert Tu
  • Topic: Honeypots along side IT security operations

Honeypots commonly take a strategic backseat to IT security operations. This has not stopped community based security professionals and enthusiasts to harness the advantages of the honeypot to form world wide networks capturing and sourcing malicious behavior. Communities that have become vendors found opportunity in higher quality IP lists as well providing deep expertise to provide solutions to anti-fraud behavior. The combination is always worth consideration if you are a customer.

  • Bio: Albert Tu is an information security professional at Farmers Insurance Exchange. His background is in vulnerability and risk management with a good amount of programming. He has a passion for solving problems of all sorts.

Sponsor: Beyond Trust
