Online Tech’s month-long, in-depth look at encryption continues at 2 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, with the free informational and technical webinar Encryption at the Software Level: Linux and Windows.
The webinar is a follow-up to the June 11 presentation on the value of encryption for HIPAA, PCI and other regulatory frameworks, and a precursor to a hardware and storage-focused webinar scheduled for June 25.
Join a pair of security experts for a discussion on encryption at various levels of both Linux and Windows software application code.
Online Tech’s own Farooq Ahmed will handle the Windows portion of the webinar. The company’s software development manager says he’s always been a fan of Microsoft, which is why he joined the .Net development shift more than a decade ago.
Ahmed built OTPortal, Online Tech’s feature-rich dashboard that delivers on-demand access to server monitoring, management and customer support.
“My specialty is architecture,” Ahmed said. “Securing data definitely comes with that.”
Online Tech will welcome a guest co-host – Mark Stanislav from Duo Security – to handle the Linux portion of the presentation. His career has focused on Linux architecture in small businesses, academia, startups and corporate environments.
Stanislav started building his information security expertise years ago while working for a web hosting provider that “had a lot of people breaking in and doing illegal stuff.”
“Security was built into my job role, and it kind of took off from there,” says Stanislav, who now holds the title ‘Security Evangelist’ at Duo.
Together, Ahmed and Stanislav will discuss how performance, backup, security, and available resources may suggest very different encryption implementations. They’ll explore the variety of places encryption can be used to mitigate risk of data loss or breach, and some of the considerations for choosing the most appropriate method to employ.
