Webcast Live Date & Time: 9:00am JAN 26 2009 United States – Los Angeles

Duration: 45 mins

Session Description – Wireless Security Assessments

Our speaker, Douglas Haider, will be presenting on the unique challenges inherent to assessing and securing wireless networks. With the recent reduction in costs of wireless equipment, it has become increasingly common for companies to implement wireless technology.  Companies may desire the convenience that wireless technologies provide, but may not appreciate the security risks inherent to these systems.  Adding wireless equipment to the corporate network adds a significant amount of additional risk to the I.T. infrastructure.  Mr. Haider will cover some of the key tools and methodologies for identifying and mitigating these risks.

Speaking *Today* at PHX ISSA Meeting

For those of you in the Phoenix area, you can hear me speak about “Replacing Desktop Ethernet with WiFi” this afternoon at the Phoenix ISSA meeting.  My company, Xirrus, had some messaging around this with their “Ditch the Switch” campaign at last year’s INTEROP.  Come see how 802.11n, 802.11e, and other improvements in the IEEE specs are making wireless as fast, safe, and reliable as Ethernet to the desktop.


The ISSA meeting is held at ITT Technical Institute from Noon until 5PM:

5005 S. Wendler Dr.
Tempe, AZ 85282


(NW Corner, I-10 & Baseline, Across from Fry’s Electronics)

  • Exit Interstate 10 at Baseline Road in Tempe, and turn West.
  • Go 1 block, and Turn North (Right) on Wendler,(the 1st light and 1st street past the underpass).
  • ITT Technical Institute is on the right beyond Denny’s.

I will post information about my upcoming speaking engagements in a more timely manner.  Stay tuned!
