Mike Barwise, Holistic Information Assurance Consultant, Integrated InfoSec.

The public commonly perceive information security as a running hi-tech battle between brilliant “bad guys” – hybrids of Darth Vader (dark side of the Force and all) and Ernst Stavro Blofeld’s cat, and amazing “good guys” – clones of the Man with No Name in a white Stetson but imbued with the smarts of Einstein. Sadly, this is rather far from the reality.

The speaker will review a selection of real security breaches and try to identify what’s really going on and why the defence often seems to be so inadequate in the face of quite basic threats.
