How do you know—and what do you do— when an attack is occurring in CyberSpace?

Kevin Flanagan, of the RSA Security Division for EMC Corporation, will discuss those issues at a talk on Tuesday, November 27. The event is hosted by the School of Information Studies’ Global Enterprise Technology (GET) program, as another in its GET Speaker Series.

His talk is scheduled from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Syracuse University’s Schine Student Center, conference room 304 (ABC).

Flanagan, CISSP, CISA, is the director of technical consulting for North America at RSA, the Security Division of EMC. He heads a team of security specialists responsible for solution architecture and technical subject matter expertise. He will present an overview of the current threat landscape, strategies for detecting sophisticated attacks, and lessons learned from the March 2011 RSA security breach.

At RSA, Flanagan’s team of information security experts addresses all RSA Solutions in the United States and Canada. They are responsible for solving customer problems and leveraging technical subject matter expertise in the areas of advanced threats, security information and event management (SIEM), data loss prevention, and authentication.

Prior to his role at RSA, Flanagan was a senior security analyst for BMW Financial Services, where he was responsible for designing policies, processes, procedures, and technical implementations for application security solutions. He also has been a senior product manager at ENDFORCE, where he led the company’s security product integration in support of strategic customer and partner opportunities. Prior to that, Flanagan worked at SmartPipes as a senior program manager and was a supervisor/lead software engineer at UUNET, a MCIWorldCom Company.
