This week's special, longer and stronger podcast is all about intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) and is hosted by the fine folk at Vigabyte virtual hosting.

By now you've been Powerpointed to death by vendor sales reps who insist their latest system can block attacks that haven't been invented yet. Of course that's utter BS, as Declan Ingram points out in his must-hear presentation on IDS and IPS.

Between 24 X 7 monitoring staff -- yours or outsourced -- slacking off and playing Xbox instead of reading real-time logs, to the inherent flaws in self-learning IPS, there's something in this talk for everyone.

On this week's show:

  • ZDNet Australia's Munir Kotadia discusses the week's news with Risky Business host Patrick Gray
  • Hear Securus Global consultant Declan Ingram's IDS/IPS presentation, edited for your aural pleasure
