Third Brigade, Inc. (http://www.thirdbrigade.com), a security software company that specializes in host-based intrusion defense systems, today announced that Brian O'Higgins, the company's Chief Technology Officer will deliver the keynote presentation at the Western Canada Information Security Conference http://www.wcisc.ca, entitled "Self-Defending Hosts: From Science Fiction to Reality".
Where: Winnipeg Convention Centre, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
When: Thursday, April 26, 2007 at 8:45am CT
Why: The concept of self-defending hosts has existed for over a decade. What was once a science fiction-like dream, is becoming increasingly real. Advances in the field of host security include deep packet inspection, and come in response to new attacks that routinely bypass perimeter defenses, targeting weaknesses in operating systems, servers and applications. And as these applications continue to evolve using the latest in Web 2.0 technologies, even more critical vulnerabilities will be exposed and exploited. Learn about the latest threats, and the developments in host-based security that are allowing public and private sector enterprises to shield their mission critical systems.
