ISSA-LA November Lunch Meeting

November 19, 2014 @ 11:30 am - 1:45 pm

Topic: Advanced security tips for end users
When it comes to tips on how end users can protect themselves from phishing, malicious websites and trojans, security professionals sometimes sound like a broken record regurgitating the same old advice. Today’s end users are more tech savvy and deserve to know more. The talk is about how to surf safely on the web and perform some basic level of analysis of suspicious files, phishing and how to achieve superior protection against zero days or evil twins. If you like LifeHacker style tips, this talk is for you.

Speaker: Cassio Goldschmidt

Cassio is also known for his contributions to Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), Software Assurance Forum for Excellence in Code (SAFECode), the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE)/SysAdmin, Audit, Network, Security (SANS) Top 25 Most Dangerous Software Errors, along with contributing to the security education curriculum of numerous universities and industry certifications.
