The folks at Microsoft are taking to the road and are putting on a security conference for developer folks and IT professionals. I’m going to be at the Canberra one on the 5th of March, other dates for the rest of the country are available. Security has been under the spotlight recently and while the press would have you believe all the problems are in the OS, most vulnerabilities exist in home grown application code.
About a year ago Jeff Prosise and Dan Green did a tour of Australia. Jeff show folks how easy it was to compromise a poorly designed application and I think I saw a collective jaw drop several times that day. Anyway, be there, or hand in your geek card!
