Information security professionals in New South Wales have been invited to meet in Sydney next month for the first of SC Magazine's Security on the Move state-based conferences in partnership with AusCERT.
The series of short, sharp and local events begins in Sydney on Thursday, November 24.
NSW Detective Inspector Bruce van der Graaf will discuss the problem of carding and online crime in NSW. Joining him will be Peter Cooper, security and risk chief at Woolworths and member of the Payment Card Industry Council.
But bigger issues will not be dismissed. At our NSW event, security and legal eagle Alana Maurushat from the University of NSW will discuss if carte blanche powers are needed to remove botnet infections from user machines without consent, and if such a move could be possible under Australian law.
AusCERT’s Grahame Ingram will give his famous dauntless discussions on the thorns in Australian infosec, while his researchers will delve under the hood to offer technical insight. And AusCERT’s Marco Ostini will discuss how to launch man-in-the-middle attacks against modern mobile phone networks.
