Upcoming Meetings

Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 6:30pm

The “enumeration of badness” approach to security has failed for two major reasons. First, the amount of “badness” is practically infinite. Second, it’s unrealistic to detect all future “badness” based on the past. Yet, the majority of products are still based on this method. Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities are just one example of the unpredictability of future “badness”. However, “goodness” is actually finite. So, is it possible to create a map of all legitimate OS behavior? The answer is yes.

Conference

27K: The Security Summit for the Americas

27K: The Security Summit for the Americas will bring experts in the ISO/IEC 27001 standard together with those who are on the front lines of international IT security to promote the standard in the US and the Western Hemisphere. The 27K Summit will help you come up to speed on ISO/IEC 27018:2014, an updated set of requirements for companies that operate in a public cloud computing environment. You’ll also learn how these standards fit within the recent National Cybersecurity Framework—important for American companies that safeguard critical infrastructures. Organizations doing domestic or international business will soon face new IT security certification requirements. The 27K Summit will help you understand these evolving requirements. The conference is being held on 9/26-28 at the South San Francisco Conference Center, 255 S Airport Blvd, South San Francisco, CA 94080.  Additional information can be found at https://iso27001.com/.
