Application Fortification
Speaker: Michael Cobb, founder and managing director, Cobweb Applications, Ltd.
The SANS Institute recently reported a shift in the way attackers target businesses. No longer are they as consumed with penetrating operating systems; the widespread use of the Web and proliferation of remote users means many attacks are hitting the application layer. This session offers insight into the best approaches for locking down Layer 7. The presentation covers essentials for sound application security architecture.

Smart Strategies for Security Information Management
Speaker:Tom Bowers, technical editor, Information Security magazine; security director, Net4NZIX.
This session looks at the regulatory, incident response and business drivers that are bringing this technology to the fore. Bowers investigates the primary needs for finding rogue data points hidden among all the normal traffic and how SIM/SEM assists this process with timely alerts and meaningful reports. He then moves his attention to visualization and how it may differ or complement this process. Along the way, you hear stories-from-the-trenches of incident response in the manual mode versus the effective use of correlation tools.
