> This monthly webcast discusses recent threats observed by the Internet
> Storm Center, and discusses new software vulnerabilities or system
> exposures that were disclosed over the past month.  The SANS Internet
> Storm Center (ISC) uses advanced data correlation and visualization
> techniques to analyze data collected from thousands of sensors in
> over sixty countries.  Experienced analysts constantly monitor the
> Storm Center data feeds searching for trends and anomalies in order
> to identify potential threats.  When a threat is identified, the team
> immediately begins an intensive investigation to gauge the threat's
> severity and impact.
>
> Johannes Ullrich is currently responsible for the SANS Internet Storm
> Center. In addition, as part of the SANS sysadmin team, he is managing
> some of SANS's systems and networks.

> Chris Harrington is a senior security engineer responsible for
> NitroGuard implementation services and management of the NitroThreat
