Peter will talk on The Convergence of Internet Security Threats.
Just as the Internet has subsumed all earlier networking technology (ARPAnet, ATM, BITnet, DECnet, Ethernet, ISDN, JANET, NSFNET, and many more), so an omnibus Internet security threat is gradually subsuming all earlier discrete threats (ID theft, phishing, script kiddies, spam, spyware, trojan horses, viruses). Instead of being small-scale (if prolific) nuisances perpetrated mostly by script kiddies, these blended threats are increasingly being created by professional programmers and managed by international criminal organisations. The Convergence of Internet Security Threats looks at the methods and technology behind this blended virus/trojan/spam/phishing/ID theft/credit card fraud threat, various less-than-effective attempts to address it via legislation, technology, and press releases, and some suggestions for potentially effective legislation and other protective measures.
The conference will be held at the Rendezvous Hotel, Flinders Street, Melbourne.
