As I mention in this blog post on the Voice of VOIPSA weblog - http://bit.ly/4i59ue
- the folks at Mitel asked me to speak in a webinar as part of their
"Discovery Series" of industry speakers.
The webinar is free to attend and begins at 1:00 pm US Eastern time
tomorrow (Oct 28, 2008). The abstract is here:
Discover Best Practices for Secure Unified Communications
Presented by: Dan York, Voice Over IP Security Alliance (VOIPSA)
October 28, 2008, 1:00 PM EDT / 10:00 AM PDT / 5:00PM GMT
With the emergence of Voice-over-IP and Unified Communications,
companies now have incredible opportunities to provide a rich
communication experience to employees located in a single location or
distributed globally. But how does a company do this in a secure
manner? How is the confidentiality and integrity of corporate
conversations protected? How can a company be sure that its IP phone
systems and IP trunks will always be available for usage? What are the
issues around protecting SIP trunks or using hosted services?
In this webinar, VoIP Security Alliance Best Practices Chair Dan
York will discuss the threats and risks to Voice-over-IP, the tools
that are out to test (or attack) VoIP system and solutions and best
practices for protecting your systems. He’ll also address concerns
around SIP trunking, Spam for Internet Telephony (SPIT) and the move
to push voice out into hosted/cloud computing environments and the
associated concerns. Come prepared to learn about securing your VoIP
system, to ask questions about your deployments and to leave with tips
and resources to protect and defend your systems.
As I note in the blog post, those of us involved with VOIPSA are glad
to participate in events such as these when asked to do so. If you
are looking for a speaker on VoIP security for a webinar or conference
event, please feel free to contact me or one of the other VOIPSA board
members and we can see what we can do for you.
