Speaker: Mr David Love, Head of Security TAG at Computer Associates

Whilst companies selling point solutions are good at describing the
particular threat against that which they are targeted, a consolidated
view of the overall threat picture is rarely adequately depicted. 

The presentation will describe the various threat areas ranging from
individual hackers, through commercial electronic espionage to state
sponsored commercial espionage. The expanding utilization of IT by
organized crime will also be covered. Given the increasingly
sophisticated nature of tools available to attack IT systems, pointers
to the future of IT protection will be extrapolated

and Flag public house (St Giles - about 200m away) for a drink, and
informal chat.
