'''Information Security Seminar (ISS) 2014'''
 +
 +
Date: 26-27 August 2014
 +
 +
Venue: Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre
 +
 +
The Information Security Seminar is an annual event held since 2008 to provide thought leadership on infocomm security as well as to promote greater understanding of the key infocomm security issues and challenges faced by public and private sector organisations. This event is jointly organised by the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA), the Association of Information Security Professionals (AiSP) and the Cyber Security Awareness Alliance (CSAA) to amalgamate expertise, resources and communication channels in reaching out to both the public and private sector organisations.
 +
 +
The theme for the 2014 Seminar is “Security of Our Cyber Environment – Challenges of the Mobile Workspace”, which centres on sensitising the Public and Private sectors on the need to heighten vigilance in securing organisations’ digital information, and to build capabilities to prepare against ever evolving infocomm security threats. With the advent and adoption of new technology trends such as mobility, cloud computing and big data management, organisations need to be guarded against their inherent security risks, such as data loss, that may result due to improper infocomm security management. The seminar will discuss on the areas of security considerations and means to secure these technologies from exploits.
 +
 +
The seminar, comprising a main plenary as well as breakout tracks, is expected to draw about 500 infocomm security decision makers and practitioners from the Public and Private sectors, as well as students from institutes of higher learning. On the second day of the seminar, workshops which aim to provide an in-depth and hands-on approach to managing infocomm security challenges will be held for security professionals and students from institutes of higher learning.

For paid OWASP members, you are entitled to two complimentary seminar passes on a first-come-first-serve basis.

In this presentation, the speaker, Wang Jing, will share on the following:
 +
 +
Unvalidated Redirects and Forwards, also known as Open Redirect, is on the OWASP top 10 list in 2010 and 2013. One repercussion of the vulnerability is that it can be used for phishing attacks. According to Kaspersky, in 2012-2013, 37.3 million users around the world were subjected to phishing attacks — up 87% from 2011-2012. This presentation introduces a new kind of attack, Covert Redirect. The name is derived from and to contrast with Open Redirect. Covert Redirect could affect those who use OAuth 2.0 and OpenID to “login” websites such as Facebook, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Paypal and many others. We will then simulate a Covert Redirect attack and provide some precautionary steps that companies can take to ensure security.

Bypassing Local Microsoft Security Policies

Date: 28 Feb 2013

Venue: Prudential Assurance Company Singapore (Pte) Ltd (not Prudential Towers!) 156 Cecil Street #10-00, Far Eastern Bank Building, Singapore 069544

Welcome to the 1st meetup of 2013!

In this presentation, the speaker, Paul Craig, will share on the following:

Local Microsoft security policies are one of the few areas of security that are rarely researched or focused on by the security community. These policies are designed to prevent local users from accessing functionality which has been "Disabled By Your Administrator". From Local Group Policy, Software Restriction Policies, App Locker to Internet Explorer, each Microsoft technology has its own way of restricting what you can and cannot do. For local exploitation attempt these technologies can be troublesome, frustrating and restrict the true potential of your attack. This talk will cover a broad view of the current attacks against Microsoft local policies and the underlying issues affecting this form of security.

Speaker Profile

Paul is the Principal Security Consultant at Security-Assessment.com Singapore. Labeled "A malicious hacker" by the media in his native New Zealand, Paul is now based in sunny Singapore where he leads the SE Asian Penetration Testing Team. Paul has been an avid security researcher and all-round advocate for security from a young age with a passion for exploitation and finding creative methods of getting shell.

23 April 2012 meetup: Rethinking web-application architecture for the Cloud

Unless your organization is unique, not all your data is sensitive. This raises the question: should scarce security resources be used to protect 100% of your data? The logical approach should be to build your IT infrastructure in a manner that optimizes your investments: protecting what matters while managing non-sensitive data with minimal controls.

This talk presents an architecture for building the next generation of web-applications. This architecture allows you to leverage emerging technologies such as cloud-computing, cloud-storage and enterprise key-management Infrastructure (EKMI) to derive benefits such as lower costs, faster time-to-market and immense scalability with smaller investments – while proving compliance to PCI-DSS, HIPAA/HITECH and similar data-security regulations. We call this "Regulatory Compliant Cloud Computing (RC3)". Papers describing RC3 can be found on the following websites:
