Facebook, MySpace and other Web 2.0 sites are no longer for the teenagers. Your employees are already actively collaborating on these sites. Web 2.0 and advent of mainstream mobility has compromised the existing corporate perimeter in profound ways. Old security architectures don’t work in a world where applications/resources are off-premise, mobile access is ubiquitous and Corporate IT is “consumerized”. The confluence of these trends has led to the rise of new threats. We will explore the nature of these threats and why the corporate perimeter is no longer effective. We will also review different approaches employed to handle the challenges of securing the emerging Web 2.0 environment.
Andre Yee will lead the discussion on Web 2.0 security challenges. Andre is the former President and Chief Executive Officer for NFR Security, the leading innovator in Real Time Threat Protection solutions. He is a noted author and conference speaker on topics related to security, middleware and enterprise architectures. He is also listed as an inventor on two patents.

Andre’s experience includes playing key senior management roles in three private companies that successfully achieved IPOs – SAGA Software, Landmark Systems and Best Software.
