Sensitive data protection podcast from Intellitactics

Intellitactics : 01 July, 2009  (Technical Article)
Podcast aimed at strengthening the skills of the IT security professional community and cover review of new book on Information Security and Privacy
Intellitactics has announced the availability of a new podcast called 'Busting Security Myths'. This podcast, the 10th in the First Person Series, is featured on the Intellitactics website and available to subscribers through RSS. Pam Casale, CMO Intellitactics, comments on the First Person Series: 'This podcast, along with the others, reflects our commitment to sponsoring programs that will expand the knowledge and skills of the community of security professionals. The threat landscape is constantly changing and the techniques that organizations can employ to protect themselves is changing just as fast. Our goal is to provide easy access to the latest thinking on the security information explosion.'


In this podcast, Warren Axelrod, one of the editors of Enterprise Information Security and Privacy (Artech House 2009) discusses the myths surrounding the securing of sensitive and private information. Each of the chapters in the book takes aim at the myths with hard facts, practical suggestions for action and real examples that bust the myth wide open. 'The situation is much too serious to let old thinking influence the way we act and make decisions,' Axelrod warns. 'Today's problems require new thinking that reflects lessons learned and employs new tactics for achieving success. I challenge anyone reading this book to come to work the next day and not do just one thing in a different way.'

Other editors, Jennifer Bayuk and Daniel Schutzer each bring their own unique perspective to this challenging subject. Bayuk, former CISO, lecturer, author and consultant, is an expert on working through audits and her chapter on information classification demystifies the process for organizations working on this task for the first time. Schutzer is the Executive Director of the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) - the financial industry's first collaborative forum designed to explore strategic business/technology issues. Also noteworthy is the chapter by Ed Amoroso, the CSO for AT&T Services, Inc., who wrote on the risks that affect any user of telecommunication services, including the subject of mobile telecommunications that is a new frontier for many security organizations. Other contributors, too numerous to mention, make this a must have for forward looking security managers.
