GDG Karachi is organizing a tech talk session ” Emerging Security Vulnerabilities & the Impact to Business” on Monday 15th April from 3 to 5 PM with Maarten Van Horenbeeck , Security Program Manager, Google, Inc. @ IBA Main campus.
Topic: Securing large scale Internet services against hackers & threats
As organizations in Pakistan and abroad leverage the strength of the Internet to build services for users around the world, and with varying technical expertise, the common question is about what it takes to keep these users secure. The topic is particularly relevant because these users rely on networks with varying degrees of trustworthiness, from the coffee shop wireless to a corporate network or the mobile Internet. And importantly, what do these users perceive as being secure.
In this talk, you’ll learn about three issues that keep the Google security team awake at night: trusting a user’s login, making sure the user can trust the service, and distinguishing activity of a person from activity of a machine. You’ll learn about how this work requires an aligned approach of partnerships, standardization efforts, and a continuous push for excellence in security engineering.
