Prof Bill Buchanan will talk on Data Loss Prevention: Detecting the Cracks and Plugging a Dam with a Billion Holes, at a Law Society of Scotland event on Wednesday 17 September in Edinburgh

This presentation will outline the many ways that sensitive information can leak from an organization, and the methods which can be used to prevent and detect the loss. This includes methods of detecting data leakage across internally networked systems, and within open source environments.

A particular challenge relates to the storage of information within The Cloud and on the trails of information that each of us leave on the Internet. With the talk, Bill will outline the growth of SIEM (Security Information and Event Manage) as a tool which can detect and log important events, so that data loss can be detected in real-time, or that the events capture can be used to playback the incident. It seems increasingly that virtually every event is captured and archived on a network, and used to analyse the methods used within data loss.
