CUISPA 2010 Agenda

I'll be one of the speakers at the 2010 Credit Union Information Security Professional Association (CUISPA) conference next month in Austin, TX. The topic is "Top Issues for 2010" and is intended as an open forum and disucssion around some of our current security challenges. This post will host a placeholder for topics I plan to talk about during my session. Feel free to e-mail me or contact me with more ideas.

  • 'Consumerization' technologies - Smartphones, Web 2.0, Facebook, social technologies
  • Custom workstation-targeted Malware
  • Browser plug-in security: Adobe Acrobat/Flash/Java/Quicktime
  • Workstation security - why both preventive AND detective controls matter
  • Phishing, SPF, and DKIM. Why haven't more CUs adopted at least SPF?
  • DNSSEC and the signing of the .org top level domain - plan to sign your zones!
  • Cloud computing opportunities and risks
  • Server/desktop virtualization

We may not have time to get to all of these in-depth, but I'd like to touch on many of them depending on real-time audience feedback as to your 2010 initiatives.
