Intrusion Detection and Prevention at Health Foundation

Matt Curtin presents Intrusion Detection and Prevention Technology and Strategy to the CIO Circle at Health Foundation in Norwood, Ohio, on November 7, 2007.


Intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS) have come a long way since the security principle of "compromise recording" was introduced into the research literature of computer science by Saltzer and Schroeder in 1975. In this discussion we look at IDPS technology, how it works with other security technology, and what problems are and are not solved by IDPS.
