Free Webinar Tomorrow: Securing VoIP and Unified Communications Systems

USTelecomWant to join in to a free webinar/webcast to learn about VoIP and Unified Communications security? Tomorrow, Thursday, January 26, 2012, I (Dan York) will be speaking as part of US Telecom’s monthly educational webinar series on the topic of: Securing VoIP and Unified Communications Systems

The session will be at 1:00pm US Eastern. Registration is free using the “Register Now” link on the right side of the US Telecom webinar page. I’ll be spending about 30 minutes covering the range of security issues with VoIP and UC and then will have plenty of time for questions.

The abstract of the session includes:

What are the major security threats to today’s telecommunications infrastructure?

As telecom has evolved from the traditional circuit-switched PSTN to a new world of Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and Unified Communications (UC), what are the security implications? As services move to be based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), how does that change the security of the system? Is this new IP-based world less or more secure? What are the threats and what are the best practices to protect against those threats?

I’ve always found these sessions to be quite enjoyable to do and have always enjoyed the dialogue that frequently happens with questions. I encourage you to register and participate.

If you can’t join live, US Telecom will be making an archive of the session available for 90 days. I believe it will be linked from the webinar page, but if not I will update this post with the information.
