On October 28 2014 the New York Technology Council presented, as part of its Security Track, David Maman of GreenSQL speaking on Protecting Sensitive Data in the Cloud: New Approaches to Mitigate Database Security Risk. As data moves to the cloud, databases are increasingly vulnerable to breaches, and as a result enterprises need to ensure that they apply rigorous strategies and controls to protect their information assets. This talk is a brief review of how to classify and discover data, manage the risks associated with migrating data to the cloud, and identify effective tools and techniques to detect and respond to data breaches.

VIDEO: @InternetSociety Briefing “Internet #Security and #Privacy: Ten Years Later” @isoctech at #ietf90
On July 22 2014 the Internet Society presented a briefing panel – Internet Security and Privacy: Ten Years Later – at the IETF 90 meeting in Toronto. Discussed were how Internet security and privacy landscapes have changed over the years, challenges we still need to address, and whether we’ll still be using the same security building blocks ten years from now. Also brought up were the societal and legislative changes that have affected the Internet, including user interfaces and risk assessment, privacy and identity implications of ‘free’ online services, and how the technical community can work together to implement more of the existing security standards like DNSSEC, DANE, and TLS. Speakers: Lucy Lynch, Director of Trust and Identity Initiatives, Internet Society; Danny McPherson, Senior Vice President and Chief Security Officer, Verisign; David Oran, Fellow, Cisco Systems; Wendy Seltzer, Policy Counsel, World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Moderator: Andrei Robachevsky, Technology Programme manager, Internet Society. The session was webcast live via the Internet Society’s livestream channel, video is below.
