Presentation Overview

Risk Identification is one of the phases described in the ISO31000 Risk Assessment process. This talk will explore this risk identification phase from an IT perspective: it will outline how to comprehensively identify IT Risks using a structured approach, thus getting better results to serve as solid foundations for subsequent phases of the risk assessment process. The subject will then shift to Disaster Recovery, a special area of Business Continuity that covers IT resiliency. Many experts consider information to be the most important item in the Business Continuity Program, and hence good Disaster Recovery practices at your organisation are crucial to ensure survival after a serious disruptive incident.

Educational Event Synopsis

Buffer overflow vulnerabilities can lead to an attacker taking over your systems. How can an IS auditor assess whether there are adequate safeguards mitigating such vulnerabilities?

This session shall explain buffer overflow vulnerabilities using a series of analogies, clarifying what goes on during program execution and how such bugs can be useful to an attacker. A practical session will follow during which an exploit for a vulnerable service will be written while going through the stages referred to in the analogies, keeping an eye on stack memory and CPU registers. Protection mechanisms and testing procedures IS auditors should consider will also be discussed.

Despite the technical nature of the topic, this talk will be presented in a manner appealing to any audience interested in information security.
