Bluefire Security addresses handheld device risks
During the Wi-Fi Planet Conference & Expo Tom Goodman, Bluefire Security vice president of operations, in tandem with Seth Fogie, vice president of Airscanner Corp., will review the security threat created by employees connecting their personal handheld devices to corporate networks. Unsecured employee-owned handhelds leave corporate networks vulnerable to data theft, malicious code attacks and unauthorized access.

The two presenters will review the key security implications of employee-owned handhelds, including legal and support liabilities as well as best and worst security practices. They will also present several plausible methods of attack and share tools and techniques for keeping devices secure and free of malicious code attacks.

Thursday, 4 Dec 2003, 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m, Track D - Securing the Network, San Jose McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, CA

On the same day, but in another conference (SANS CDI East 2003 National Information Assurance Leadership Conference VI
), Eric Maiwald, Bluefire Security director of product management and support, will discuss the security risks associated with the increased use of handheld devices. He will also review handheld versus desktop security, threat vectors, countermeasures, public policy, network architectures and device security.

Thursday, 4 Dec 2003, 1:40 p.m. - 2:40 p.m., Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington
