Learning from WikiLeaks

Presented by

About this talk

WikiLeaks has repeatedly published extremely confidential, classified U.S government documents obtained from U.S. government personnel who were not authorized to release the information. WikiLeaks is now threatening to disclose incriminating documents regarding a major U.S. bank. With the focus shifting to businesses, there is a new urgency to address information security within organizations. At risk are emails, documents, databases and internal websites that are critical to your business and your reputation. Routine security policies are usually insufficient should someone with legitimate access decide to go rogue. All that’s needed is intent, access to sensitive data, and a cheap thumb drive. Attend and learn how WikiLeaks happened; why it is relevant to your organization and easy steps that you can take to protect your sensitive information.
