Here is an interesting webinar on the 'Insecurities of Security Products'. More often we consider the security vulnerabilities in products apart from security products. It is ironic how a product devised to provide security can also make you more susceptible to compromise. How-So will be demonstrated through a few examples.

3 Industry experts had joined us in this webinar-

  • Stuart McClure, Ex-CTO at McAfee & Lead author of 'Hacking Exposed'
  • Bikash Barai, CEO, iVIZ Security
  • Gary Golomb, Senior Researcher, Cylance

*Note the webinar was conducted in 2013, thus the information related to persons are as per the webinar timing.
