Practical Uses of Directed Acyclic Graphs

This talk will cover some interesting uses of Directed Acyclic Graphs in everyday engineering.

State of Security Architecture Practices Today

While the specialty field of “Information Security Architecture” is maturing and slowly gaining ground as a recognized specialty, there are still many misconceptions about what it really means. Michelle will present the state of information security architecture today, some of the common misconception about the practice and finally present a consensus outline of what a good security architecture practice entails and what are the key questions that should be asked for every project.
