If your in Sydney, Australia next Tuesday we have been lucky enough to get Steve Riley from Microsoft giving us a talk on "Attack trends and techniques".
Here is Steves Topic:
Attack trends and techniques
The bad guys just keep getting better! They're constantly changing their tactics and inventing new techniques to cause you harm, damage your data, and make your resources unavailable. Why do they do this? What motivates someone to -- let's call it what it is -- commit computer-related crimes? How have they changed and improved? What kinds of attacks are popular now and why are they so effective? What might we expect to see in the future? Steve Riley will help you understand the latest in attack trends and techniques, so that you can plan appropriately and implement effective processes and technologies to mitigate their threats.
