Last Chance to Register for Amphion Forum 2012 in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Mocana (News - Alert), a leader in device and mobile security, invites technology
leaders interested in mobile security to register for the Amphion Forum
event coming to San Francisco on December 5. Thought leaders from
academia, business, government and technology will discuss the threats
and opportunities presented by the unprecedented proliferation of mobile
and connected devices that are creating the 'Internet of Things.' Online
registration closes Friday.
This exclusive interdisciplinary event will gather device security
researchers and experts from around the world and features an opening
keynote by Bev Crair, general manager of the Intelligent Systems
Framework Division at Intel (News - Alert) Corporation, on "Setting the Framework for
Securing Intelligent Systems and the Internet of Things."
"From iOS and Android mobile devices, to embedded electronics, to the
smart grid, to medical equipment, we live in a world where connected
devices outnumber PCs by at least five to one. Yet virtually all of
these devices are defenseless, deployed on the Internet with less
security than what you'd find on your home PC," said Kurt Stammberger,
CISSP, vice president of market development at Mocana and chair of the
Amphion Forum. "As the only event of its kind, the Amphion Forum is able
to bring together experts from diverse industries to establish a
framework to address the device security mess, which will cost
businesses billions in the next few years if we don't work together to
address it now."
Morning and afternoon sessions will include a number of presentations
and modrated panel discussions, starting with an opening presentation
on "Preventing Zero-Day Vulnerabilities on Mobile Devices," followed by
two panel discussions, "The Enterprise App Tsunami - What Leading
Organizations Need to Know to Ride the Wave while Securing Their
Interests" and an expert panel addressing device security and threats to
the Internet of Things.
Four technology tracks in the forum's afternoon agenda feature nineteen
presentations by thought leaders from a number of leading technology
companies, including "Securing the Endpoints: Innovations in ID and
Security," "Threats to the Smart Grid: Possible Responses," "The
Security Cathedral and Bazaar: Mobile System Level Crypto Services vs.
Embedded App Security" and "Self-Defending Software (Lessons from the
Garden of Eden)."
The San Francisco event is modeled on the World Economic Forum and is
sponsored by a who's who of mobile and device security innovators,
including Gold Sponsors Mocana, Intel Corporation, Wind River, McAfee (News - Alert),
Codenomicon and VDC Research, as well as Fixmo, Cryptography Research,
