While I’ve fielded the usual avalanche of press queries this week, I haven’t noticed any of my responses being used, and actively checking isn’t a priority.

Note that while I was representing ESET in the keynote session, I was representing Small Blue-Green World and Mac Virus in the iPad session.

Keynote Session – APT: Real Threat or Just Hype? Everyone’s talking about advanced persistent threats. According to security researchers, APT-driven zero-day attacks may have been behind the widely-publicized data breach at RSA in March of this year. This session will define what makes an APT, and advises what techniques you can use to defend your organization from these new menacing attacks.
