Kerry will be presenting the following:

“Cyber War Needs New Weapons – How to take a Gun to a Knife fight!” – and will be an examination of the evolution of threats and countermeasures through the ages and how this applies to the Cyber Age, and will look specifically at the way threats have changed the risks that people run and how they have altered their defensive posture to maintain an acceptable risk profile.  It will explore the effectiveness of the current crop of anti-malware tools available and the latest approach offered by companies like Abatis, which achieves very high levels of success at stopping malware infection without affecting system performance.  The intention of this presentation is to educate rather than pitch.
