Telspace Talk at ISSA 2012

Telspace presented at the ISSA conference last year when our CEO, Dino Covotsos, did a fantastic presentation titled: Sailing the Lulz Boat. The talk centred around one of the most controversial hacking networks in recent times and what they did and how they did it. This will be my first presentation at the ISSA, and my first for Telspace too.

I will be continuing on Dino’s great presentation by discussing how the LulzSec network got caught and prosecuted and also why this sort of activity is not a good idea. Prosecuting cyber-criminals is a very difficult task as there are jurisdiction difficulties and we will have a look at some of the internet laws involved, and the tactics used to capture the LulzSec group.

Following from this we will also look at the requirements of many compliance and legislative acts that speak to risk mitigation, not only operational, but reputational, that organisations should be employing with respect to their industries to reduce these risks. It has been a passion of mine in an ever more connected world to speak about this as with more connectivity comes more risk. This is not just through the direct connectivity organisations employ themselves, but the interconnectivity they practice with other stakeholders, such as vendors and suppliers and customers that expose themselves to risk through a need to increase their own productivity.

It should be a fun talk, and I am really looking forward to it! See you all at the ISSA Conference in August 2012!
