Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Live Broadcast Social networks, local admins, unpatched software, missing USBs: the causes of security problems in your business are often not just the big stuff that tries to get inside the firewall, it's the little problems that are already on the inside.

On October 13th at 16:00 BST/11:00 EDT, our latest live Regcast questions-

  • Could your traditional security architecture be solving the wrong problems?
  • Would a new approach to your current security plug the gaps more efficiently?
  • How much do we need to trust and train our users?

The Reg's Tim Phillips is joined by security specialist Mike Rothman from Securosis, Paul Zimski from security specialist Lumension, and Andy Buss from Freeform Dynamics, who will reveal the results of the latest Register reader research that addresses these security dilemmas.

We’d love to hear about how you are(and how you are possibly not)keeping your organization's security practices in check -so share your experiences in our on-going live Q&A.

Join us for this free event here and if you can't be there for the live broadcast you can see the show through an on-demand version for your convenience.®
