ITWeb Security Summit 2010

Posted on May 5, 2010

I was up in Johannesburg last week to attend and co-present at the IT Web Security Summit 2010. The conference had some really good speakers (Joe Grand, Moxie Marlinspike, FX, Charlie Miller, and others) covering a wide variety of most interesting topics.

You can read some articles about the conference, the speakers and the presentations at the link above. Alex Kayle did a brief email based Q&A ahead of the presentation and wrote up the following article. It gives some idea of what the presentation is all about.

I was co-presenting with a colleague, David Volschenk on the implementation of Security and control frameworks. We took two hypothetical companies (combined from various client experiences) and compared the processes and experiences to contrast what worked and what didn’t across the organisations, while looking at the key drivers (of which King 3 is now a significant one). This was woven around Dickens’ “A tale of two cities” to bring a bit of a different angle into what otherwise could have been quite a dry topic. Take a look at the King 3 responsibilities on the Board of Directors if you haven’t already. They are quite onerous compared to King 2 (which pretty much ignored IT governance). The King 3 report is available for download on the Institute of Directors (IOD) website.

Our presentation on the day went down reasonably well to quite a full venue. Thanks to all those who attended, hope you enjoyed what we had to say.

The presentation has been uploaded for all those who may wish to check it out.
