EA presenting with VMware at Cloud Security Summit

We are pleased to announce that EA Principal Consultant David Campbell will be presenting with security expert Rob Randell from VMware at Brighttalk's Cloud Security Summit on 30 Sept 09.

The talk is titled "Securing Virtual Infrastructure", and though we may use VMware for certain examples, the principles we discuss will apply to most hypervisors.  We will be discussing, and demonstrating (to the extent that Brighttalk's webex platform will allow) a couple of practical attacks against virtualization management infrastructure that may be eye opening.

The webex goes live at 4pm PDT, 7pm EDT on 30 Sept 09.  The link to the registration page is here.  If you aren't able to attend the live session the event will be archived and available for streaming afterwards also.

Note that we have received feedback from folks who attended our last Brighttalk preso that the registration process was a bit over the top and required a lot of personal info for a "security session".  We encourage anyone who wants to attend the session but is put off by the level of personal information requested by the registration form to just put placeholder data in any fields they deem too invasive.
