Schedule: Security sessions

It should be no surprise that as Web 2.0 hits the mainstream, security issues move into the spotlight. Vastly more data is now accessible on the Web, and as individuals and businesses move their computing into the cloud, they want to know that it will be there for them and those they trust, and that it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. This track looks at technical, design, legal and business aspects of security, from the assumption that true security is not a question of code alone.
