PRESENTATION: Cambridge University's Ross Anderson on the economics of information security

Day three keynote from the AusCERT conference... good stuff...
May 24, 2011 -- 

This is a full presentation by AusCERT's day three keynote speaker Ross Anderson.

Ross has kindly allowed us to podcast his entire talk.

Ross is professor of security engineering at Cambridge University, and author of the bestselling textbook "Security Engineering: A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems". He was a pioneer of peer-to-peer systems, of hardware tamper-resistance, and of the economics of information security.

Ross will discuss the economics of information security in two contexts: frauds against payment networks, and the resilience of the Internet. The talk will draw on a recent major study Cambridge did on the resilience of the Internet.
