Sales Pitches Disguised as Computer Security Seminars

Computer Security online seminars and webinars are one of my favorite things to watch to help keep up to date on the latest trends. Those who have followed my blog for a while know that every once in a while I will give a heads up when I see a good security seminar coming down the pipe.

I haven’t done that for a while, and with good reason. Wow, there have been some real stinkers lately. True, some take the most exciting topic in the computer industry and somehow put you to sleep with monotone dribble. But lately, many that I have seen have just been corporate sales pitches wrapped in computer security hype.

For example, the topic would make you think it was an in-depth technical analysis of the latest security risks. But then they give a couple slides on hacking statistics, then talk about their product for 45 minutes!

It is to bad that everyone is trying to cash in on the “hacker” hype. I will still try to notify you when a good one is coming up, but for now, SANS webcasts may be your best bet!
