Colloquium - Anderson

Enterprise Security
Avanade, Inc.

In today's information societies, our businesses rely on the free exchange of information between vendors, partners, departments, and individuals in order to ensure that products get sold, services get rendered, customers are contacted, and to process a thousand other functions. As more information traverses our networks, the threat that compromise poses looms ever greater. In systems engineering and software development, our field consultants are always looking for patterns and practices to protect this critical data. In this talk, we will look at some of those engineering and development patterns, how they affect businesses, and how we, as current and future technology implementers, can use every day security considerations to enhance each program and system that we are a part of.
