SCHEDULE CHANGE: To allow Paul Milkman, SVP, Head of Tech. Risk Mgmt. & Info. Security TD Bank Group, to co-present "Cybersecurity Game Changers" we have rearranged the schedule of our talks. Please see below.
In the first of three TIM Lectures on cybersecurity, our speaker, Arnold Kwong, CEO of Storm Internet, Canada, and Managing Director Extratelligence, USA, will be talking about the Web Infections and Protections project, which applies biological contagion models to the existence of infectious objects spreading between computing nodes via networks and other connections.
Time and location
The lecture will take place on Feb 27, 2014, at 6-9pm in St. Patrick’s Building, Room SP 102. Please register below to help us plan the event.
Web Infections and Protections (WIPP) is a series of papers, presentations, and technical references developed by Healton, Kwong, and Lancaster (1998-onwards). The initial purpose of Web Infections and Protections was to research and discuss emerging threats against computers, networks, and infrastructure by new techniques and attack vectors not previously explored. Continuing Web Infections and Protections research explores the strategy, protocols, and futures, conduct of technical practitioners, and the behavior of the immersive environment we now live in.
The Lessons from the Web Infections and Protections (WIPP) project include:
New infections can’t be guessed at ahead of time. The flaws in behavior and code may not be obvious even upon inspection.
New infection routes may be unknowable when systems and protocols are put in place
New infection damage is hard to find and hard to remediate.
Threat models are a map – they aren’t the territory.
Threat calculations are just that – calculations that are as good or bad as their data.
WIPP isn’t about the ethical behavior or morals, nor about ‘black hats and white hats’, nor about ‘hackers’ and ‘ethical hackers’. WIPP is about what, how, when, and where the behavior was manifest. WIPP examines the past and predicts the future.
