There was no Lecture or Tutorial session this week so instead, we were instructed by Paul and Patrice to attend an special Security Exhibition which is held once a year called Infosecurity Europe (infosec for short). The main aim of sending us there was to gather information for an exam question related to the exhibition itself and the secondary aim for me personally was to research on potential employers to work with when i graduate from university.
Whilst i was at Infosec, myself accompanied by a small group of classmates (Valdo Carvalho, Abdual Hassan & Yordan) conducted informal interviews with the aim of finding potential answers to the exam questions set to us.
This was the exam question set to us (see below):
Exam Question 1 – what you must consider after the event
You visited the Infosec Expo and attended a specialist seminar on behalf of El SBU a university in a major city. The institute requested you write a report on your visit there. Summarise your main findings with special regard to these issues:
- BYOD, BYOX or COPE which of these was trending the most at the event?
- Enterprise apps – what are the major threats
- The Internet of things – should the institute be worried?
Myself and my group spoke to 12 different companies making references to the exam question and they each gave there own unique interpretive answer. (Below are the names of the 12 companies that were interviewed and the recordings).
