Event Summary : Nowadays, emerging technologies are changing the way companies conduct business in this globally-integrated, fast-paced, and cost-critical world. All enterprises are becoming more innovative with how technology enables them to do business, yet, each business technology innovation creates new security risks and compliance issues. IT executives must do more than simply respond to the acceleration of security threats learning instead how security innovation, when aligned with business strategy, creates real business value.

Through the Annual Info Security Summit 2010 hosted by MIG, with the theme "Architecting a New Information Security Landscape in 2010 and Beyond", you will hear some valuable insights on moving security from a yesterday mind-set as a cost-center, to a business issue that drives business value. Featured speaker is Mr. Bruce Nikkel, Head of IT Investigation & Forensics, Group Security Services, UBS AG, Switzerland.

Explore WebApp and Privacy Security Darkness 2009 (Hong Kong Edition)

9 Jan 2010 (Saturday)

Time : 14:00 - 16:00
Venue : M108, Polytechnic University
Language: Cantonese (Slides are written in English)
Supporting Unit: Special thank you to Rocky's support for VX activities
Co-organized and
Presented by: 
Valkyrie-X Security Research Group x OWASP (HK Chapter)
Abstract:

"What a peaceful Hong Kong!"
"We need harmony!"

I would like to give this seminar for a long time, be frank, you never hear about any hacking incidence causing data leakage in various media in Hong Kong; In different seminars, you will never find it and get it as well. 

Yeah, people said those are "sensitive",  however, avoidance and keep it closed are the solutions and the vulnerability will become inexistent, are they? 

People and companies tend to cover it, afraid of impairing their images, how about the public? Do they have the rights to know their information being compromised? In the past 24 months, we appreciate PCO attempts to make ultimate efforts on privacy enforcement, otherwise, I don't think those organizations will "voluntarily"
report the data loss incidence but simply put it "silently". However, such reporting is optional and voluntary but mandatory.

At the same time, we will show you a case how two different organizations dealing with their potential vulnerability reported by VX: One shows their professional and immediate response and another simply sucks!

Let VX comes to the playground and uncover the darkness as we have no burden at all.Only dealing with and overcoming the darkness openly, a clear sky will be seen.I believe you will never feel bored in the seminar, please feel free to bring your wireless-enabled laptop and explore the darkness with us. No worries, there is no malicious attack, we simply go through the first two stages of Penetration Test: Information Gathering and scanning only with various tools.

Hopefully, our act could bring an alert to you guys and put off your conservative and closed mind, dealing with problems squarely.
