October General Meeting

Public Key Infrastructure

Speaker: Fady Bashay, Senior Security Consultant, Paladion Cyber Security Experts

The way business evolves every day shows an increasing demand for more secure email, web access, and Virtual Private Networks (VPN). Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is the most preferable and strong security technology that provides identification, authentication, and encryption to most organizations.

We will explore the two well known ways of encryption: the Symmetric Key and Public Key. Then we will examine the top concerns that CISO's have today with respect to the use of certificates. What are the best practices that organizations should adopt for proper certificate management.

Fady Bashay is a Security Consultant who specializes in PKI, Certificate lifecycle management, cryptography and key management. He has a Master of Engineering Information System Security from Concordia University in Montreal and is currently working at Paladion Inc. as Senior Security Consultant.
