“Smashing the stats for fun and profit v.2010” (or how to convince your boss to spend properly on security)

We all know that security vulnerabilities need to be fixed but it can be hard to convince your employer that you deserve a budget so you can do your job properly.

Using research from the 2010 Canada wide security survey, we’ll explore (FUD and vendor Free) the following topics:

  • Do people still forget about application security?
  • Which approaches work in getting the business to understand security issues?
  • How much should you spend on security?
  • What’s the right way to identify security problems in your environment so they get fixed

The talk will cover the all new 2010 survey data together with unique content for SECTOR attendees.
