Security Unveiled: How and Why People Hack


Wednesday, February 8, 2012, 4:00 – 5:00 PM

The Hariri Institute Conference Room (MCS 180) at 111 Cummington Street

Speaker: David Seidman, Microsoft


David Seidman, Senior Security Program Manager at Microsoft, will talk about the seedy underbelly of computing and things that go bump in the night. He’ll expose how security vulnerabilities are bought and sold in a complex black market ecosystem and how Stuxnet is different from other viruses. He’ll also cover some of the other interesting things Microsoft’s security team sees on a daily basis, and there will be lots of time for questions.

Host: Sharon Goldberg
