AGENDA 09:00 - Registration Morning coffee, tea, biscuits and breakfast. 09:30 – Introduction to Foursys We’ll be giving a brief introduction to our award winning security business and the types of services we offer to help secure your organisation. We’ll also be giving an overview of our latest two offerings – Managed Services and the Virtual Security Appliance. 10:00 – Ethical Hacking Training You will first learn some of the skills and techniques hackers/intruders use to gain access to a network and then be taught how to do them yourself. Attacks explored include some of the most common application targets and SMTP hijacks. You will also be given a booklet with ‘try at home’ exercises to further explore this intriguing topic and tests to make sure your organisations network is safe from such attacks. 10:45 – Mid-morning Break Coffee, tea and biscuits with a chance to network and discuss the presentations you’ve just seen. 11:00 – Answering BYOD security with agentless NAC (Network Access Control) You have countless devices with countless different Mobile Device Management (MDM) products to choose from but none do what you really need to fully secure your network and data. We’ll give you insight to how, without installing a client, you can enable BYOD for all devices and fully secure your LAN and data. 12:15 –Sophos Roadmap (including Cloud & UTM) Sophos have some big plans especially when it comes to cloud and their UTM product that is worth you knowing about. One of our Sophos experts will take you through this vision and how you can expect this to help you in the near future. 12:45 – Breakout Session, Lunch & Activities Grab some lunch and choose one of our five mini breakout sessions to come and sit-in on. After which we’ll be offering some unforgettable lunchtime experiences such as flights over the city of Cambridge or hot laps round the famous Silverstone circuit. BREAK OUT SESSIONS · ForeScout CounterACT Console Demo – A Gartner Magic Quadrant leader in NAC · Websense Data Security & TRITON Console Demo · Check Point – A leader in Enterprise Network Firewall Magic Quadrant for 16 years · All Sophos Product demos including UTM · Foursys Virtual Security Appliance Activity for Venue: Behind the scenes tour of Old Trafford Football Stadium (see below) 14:45 – Special Guest Speaker - Neil Thacker Neil Thacker, Information Security & Strategy Officer (EMEA) at Websense will discuss while anti-virus, anti-spam and URL filtering solutions still have a role in network security, they can’t protect against today’s advanced threats. Phishing and other attacks can bypass them to infect systems with malware. And hackers can extract valuable data. Targeted attacks have changed things. Today’s advanced attacks occur in seven stages that can result in data theft. Are your defences ready? In this session you will learn: · How hackers are outsmarting traditional defences; · How Foursys and Websense are helping customers to outsmart hackers with the unified Websense TRITON security architecture. This technology offers the best protection against all seven attack stages, in a security solution that’s easy to manage (and is easy on the TCO, too). 15:45 –End User Education Course Training Designed to help you educate the ultimate security weakness within your environment, the average computer user! Learn the methods and content to deliver engaging communication to end users and discover how to motivate users to attend and learn from the training sessions you hold. We’ll also be giving you take away material to save you time in rolling out your End User Education programme when you get back to the office. SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER Neil Thacker Information Security & Strategy Officer (EMEA) Websense ACTIVITY Enjoy a guided tour of the world famous stadium where you will be taken on an amazing journey through the history of Manchester United FC. The tour will take you on to many areas you've never seen before including changing rooms, pitchside and the dug-outs.
