Core Security Experts Selected to Present at Infosecurity Europe 2009

Core Security Technologies, provider of the CORE IMPACT family of comprehensive enterprise security testing solutions, today announced that its experts have been selected to serve as speakers for two sessions at the upcoming Infosecurity Europe 2009 conference being held in London from April 28-30.



  “Security Testing: The Future Of Internal Assessment And Assurance”


10:40 a.m. GMT on Wednesday, April 29, 2009.


Earl’s Court Convention Hall


Alex Horan, senior product manager of Core Security Technologies

Presentation Details:
Based on the spiraling complexity of IT security technologies and processes themselves, and the proliferation of even more sophisticated threats meant to circumvent these controls, there has arguably never been a greater need for organizations to actively assess their system’s defenses.

As a result of all these factors, commercial penetration testing products have emerged that for the first time allow organizations to make security testing a standard, repeatable process; however, most of these technologies still require significant time and expertise to maximize their capabilities.

In this talk, Horan will explore how manual penetration testing has evolved over time from a specialized domain practiced by an expert few into a standard process accessible by most organizations -- and explore the role of vulnerability and application scanning therein. From there, he will offer predictions on where security testing will go over the next five years as even more solutions emerge that allow large organizations to take greater control of their own security testing processes – and consequently gain the information they need to stay ahead of emerging threats.


  “Untangling the Web: Driving Web Application Security”


5:00 p.m. GMT on Wednesday, April 29, 2009


Hotel Ibis London Earls Court


Alex Horan, senior product manager of Core Security Technologies
Dan Haagman, chief operating officer of 7Safe
Wolfgang Kandek, chief technical officer of Qualys
Nikk Gilbert, IT security director of Alstom
Fran Howarth, principal analyst of Quocirca (moderator)

Presentation Details:
Without question, one of the most daunting security challenges facing most IT departments today is the prospect of protecting their web applications from attack. As the programs themselves have become increasingly complex and business-critical, and hackers have trained their sights on the exploitable vulnerabilities present in many applications, organizations have found themselves trying to pull off a difficult balancing act as they attempt to calculate, assess and address all the related security risks.

Representatives from Core Security, 7Safe, Qualys and Quocirca – along with enterprise practitioner Nikk Gilbert of EU transportation giant Alstom, will discuss the range of the issues facing organizations today around web applications vulnerability management, including:

  • Real-world risks facing many organizations today around web application security
  • Vulnerability and risk management techniques being adopted by leading-edge users
  • Processes that organizations can adopt to help improve their web applications security posture
  • Assessment technologies available on the market today to help address these challenges

For more information about the panel discussion or to schedule meetings with Core Security at the Infosecurity Europe 2009 Conference, please contact Tim Whitman or Justin Drake at 781-684-0770 or via email at: [email protected].

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
