CSI2008: Security Reconsidered

This year's CSI 2008 event promises to be every bit as interesting as ever. CSI tracks are broad, the topics deep, and the speakers top-notch. Once again I find myself wanting to see all of it (9 tracks!) but only one of me.
This year's CSI 2008 event promises to be every bit as interesting as ever. CSI tracks are broad, the topics deep, and the speakers top-notch. Once again I find myself wanting to see all of it (9 tracks!) but only one of me.Centered around topics, each track takes a deep dive on such topics as virtualization security, security event and incident management (SEIM), Web 2.0 security, Trusted Computing, and secure design, along with a host of other topics. You can immerse yourself in a summit or spread your interests around. What I like about the show is that it's rather low-key and focused.

Monday, I'll hit a few preso's and then I am off to meet with vendors and hear about the latest and greatest. Tuesday, I will be at the Trusted Computing summit along with Steve Hanna, David O'Berry, Greg Zazmierczak, and the moderator, Lisa Lorenzin. The Trusted Computing summit will be focusing on the TPM and its uses, including the uses for NAC.
