Welcome Back to Fall 2008!!



Fairfax, VA - November 4, 2008 - November Chapter Meeting will be  held on Tuesday, November 18, 6:15 - 9 pm in the Student Union Building I, Room B on the Fairfax Campus.

Presentation: Physical Security Controls & Weaknesses

Physical security is an oft-overlooked component of data and system security in the technology world.  While frequently forgotten, it is no less critical than timely patches, appropriate password policies, and proper user permissions.  You can have the most hardened servers and network but that doesn't make the slightest difference if someone can gain direct access to a keyboard or, worse yet, march your hardware right out the door.  Those who attend this session will leave with a full awareness of how to best protect buildings and grounds from unauthorized access. Discussion as well as direct example will be used to demonstrate the grave failings of low-grade hardware... much of which
will be opened by audience members with no prior training. What features to look for in locks and safes will be covered, and how to invest in
systems that are easiest to manage in large environments will be discussed.

Presenter: Deviant Ollam (bio)

There will be free food and drinks available. Social networking starts at 6:15. Please RSVP by 11/17/08 to gmu.isaa.rsvp@gmail.com
