Best Practice Seminar Held on Malware And Social Networking Policies

The Federation Against Software Theft : 26 May, 2010  (Company News)
FAST has conducted a seminar in the UK for business leaders to acquaint them with the latest tools and best practices in combating malware and dealing with the issue of social networking in the workplace
FAST IiS, the not-for-profit association promoting best practice in software use, has held an IT security seminar to educate UK businesses on the latest solutions against the threats of malware, viruses and unregulated use of social networking sites. The event was held at Churchill's Cabinet War Rooms in Whitehall and forms part of FAST IiS's ongoing commitment to educating UK businesses on the latest best practice advice and technological solutions.


FAST IiS Chief Executive John Lovelock commented: "The event was well attended and proved a great success with end users learning about current threats and practical solutions from our Information Technology Security Group's (ITSG) experts. We presented business leaders and IT staff with top tips from leading industry vendors and consultants, in particular the keynote from the Information Commissioners Office's Jonathan Bamford was well received."

Ian Moyse, EMEA Channel Director, Webroot added: "Yet again a well attended and content rich event providing attendees with valuable information from a number of speakers to aid their war against emerging threats in such an apt location!"

Ian Kilpatrick Chairman of security specialists Wick Hill said: "It was an excellent audience for what was an interesting and stimulating event covering many of the key issues facing enterprises today".

Attendee Ashley Waterman, Data Lead for Immunology, Cancer and Infectious Diseases at Great Ormond Street Hospital said: "A good range of presenters giving very useful content. FAST provided a relaxed environment with very approachable speakers."

Business leaders and end users gained valuable information on the threats to data and the ramifications, both financial and reputational, of lax data security. Crucially, expert advice was shared on the legal and regulatory risks from both internal and external threats, and how best to manage them.

Lovelock concluded: "It is FAST IiS's wish that all organisations take their IT security and compliance issues as seriously as did today's attendees, since the scale of the threats facing end users is vast. Not just from malware, but the often forgotten issues of under or over licensing of software assets, exposing users to compliance risks which they can ill afford at present."
