September General Meeting

The Importance of PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Management

Speaker: Fady Bashay, Senior Security Consultant, Difenda Inc.

Fady Bashay

With more and more companies embracing new technologies such as Cloud computing, IOT and mobiles Apps, PKI becomes more crucial to protect any organization. PKI is now emerging as a core for securing such new Technologies.

We will describe what is PKI and what is the technology behind digital certificates. We will explore how PKI is deployed in an enterprise environment. We will explain the different technical components that need to be deployed.

Usage of PKI has exploded in recent years. In the process, many organizations have lost control over their PKI assets. We will talk about the general best practices and what are the risks associated with using certificates.

And finally, we will explain some of the top concerns that CISO's have today with respect to the use of certificates. How are certificates being used by hackers and malicious users to breach organizations.

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 Difenda Inc. as Senior Security Consultant.
