Forum on the Information Security
During June 10-11, S&T Mold carried out an annual forum on the information security “Up-to-date Information Threats and Advanced Countermeasures”. This forum has been organized for several consecutive years and became a tradition, as the hacking and information security means and possibilities are developed and improved very fast.

They presented new solutions: a firewall Cisco ASA with servers, Cisco Platform Exchange Grid, Cyber Threat Defense, a new version of NetFlow and the new StealthWatch NBAD. They also presented the vision of CISCO on the development of a safe Internet perimeter.
Volodymyr Ilibman noticed: “The main security problems are: dynamics of threats, development of the IT and business models, data complexity and fragmentation – threats change constantly and the security means must not only keep the pace with them, but also leave them one step behind.”
