Cyber security webcast available online
A truly interactive discussion with two security experts yields useful pointers for system owners.
One of the difficult elements of our webcasts is that they don’t tend to be as interactive as we’d like due to technical limitations. When presenters are calling in from various locations, they can’t see each other and interaction is difficult. That’s why the cyber security discussion broadcast last week is different than most. All three of us were sitting around the same table where we were able to see each other and discuss these questions as appropriate.
This webcast discusses the results of the cyber security survey, but the discussion goes on to consider what the answers imply from a technical or procedural standpoint. Matt Luallen and Tim Conway move into suggestions for what users can do to remediate some of the issues that emerge in the questions. The Q&A discussion also touches on many questions from registrants.
If you listened to the original broadcast, there were some noisy phone line problems, particularly near the beginning, so if you didn’t hear everything as you wanted to, the sound quality on the recorded version is much cleaner.
