Sat, 15 Apr 2006 19:44:00 -0500Special video edition! Two weeks ago I did a presentation for the Advanced Technologies and Architectures group of Cornell Information Technologies. My presentation was entitled "Security Architectures at Cornell". Anyone interested in understanding how best to create a security architecture to protect their resources, which should include anyone who has a computer, will find this presentation interesting, informative, and (possibly) entertaining, though some of the content is geared toward tech-folk. It wasn't designed to be a layman's presentation. Still, the methodologies and philosophies should be useful for anyone.
