Thank you to everyone who was able to attend out last chapter meeting on March 10th! I think everyone got a lot out of the session
Please pencil in our next meeting on Wednesday, April 28th from 3:30pm – 7:30pm in Deloitte’s Parsippany office. Registration will take place between 3:30pm and 4:00pm, presentations from 4pm – 6:30pm, and a cocktail reception to close out the day. I have attached an outlook reminder for your convenience.
As always, I encourage you to bring along your colleagues and clients!
Below are the names and abstracts of our guest speakers for April 28th:
Clifton Slater, Security Engineer
Topic/Title: Adobe Reader Bumps Microsoft from the Throne of “Most Attacked Software”
In the dawn of the past decade, the Microsoft operating system was a hacker’s dream. It was universally-used software and it was ripe with bugs ready to be exploited to hijack users’ PCs or launch denial of service attacks.
But 10 years later, Microsoft has slowly cleaned up its security flaws leaving cybercriminals to target another vendor whose products are nearly as ubiquitous and whose never-ending vulnerabilities are just being discovered. That vendor is Adobe.
Due to the current trend of converting trusted web sites into malicious servers (i.e. Operation Aurora), this session will focus on the browsers and client-side applications that can be invoked by browsers as the new “danger zone” and the steps IT administrators must take to block a Google-like attack and the loss of intellectual property or customer data.
Randolph Smith, Manager of Information Security
Topic/Title: Cenzic Hailstorm
During the past year, Randolph Smith at UPS has led the charge of Cenzic Hailstorm technology deployment and adoption throughout the company. Attend his presentation to learn how he accomplished the following:
- Attaining buy-in from key members of the company - from executives to end users,
- Understanding the "human element" for optimal technology adoption,
James Carnall, Manager
Topic/Title: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Security Risks to the Enterprise that Arise with Social Media
This session will address the role, benefits and security risks of social media in today’s enterprise.
James Carnall will discuss:
- The latest trends in online social media
- What are potential threats and security risks to business (physical, technological, IP) through social media
- Tips to establish your own social media guidelines and policies
- Social media best practices
Please RSVP with me no later than Thursday, April 22nd. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

As always we invite our members to volunteer themselves, colleagues, or other experts on these and other security-related topics, to present at our upcoming meetings. While we can always find vendors willing to speak, it is always more helpful to have you, the security practitioners share your valuable insight and experiences with your peers.
