TrustDefender Event at the Ivy Penthouse, Sydney

Banking and financial leaders gather at a glam round table in the war against cybercrime
Computer Trojans are getting smarter and have become mega trickier than the mythological Trojan Horse they were named after and we learnt this week that web Trojans can not only invade internet banking, online shopping and Cloud computing but they can even worm their way into household television set top boxes – scary stuff.

Cybercrime is exploding and attacking us on all fronts and TrustDefender has become a leading force in cyber fraud risk management, focusing on the protection and security of online transactions for both companies and individuals.   Not surprising then that when the TrustDefender team held a function to introduce its three new products, TrustDefender Pro, TrustDefender Central Intelligence Server and TrustDefender Zero, that the Ivy Penthouse was abuzz with Australia’s heavyweights from the banking industry and major financial institutions.

TrustDefender is another great Australian Story with co-founder and CEO, Ted Egan telling how he and fellow co-founder and CTO, Andreas Baumhof, started the company basically in their ‘garages’.  Not bad for an enterprise that is now globally recognised for its innovative solutions for Internet security.

Andreas Baumhof, CTO of TrustDefender, confided how he spends a lot of his time pulling apart what the bad guys are doing and went  on to tell guests “it is no longer good enough to identify that you have a Trojan – you need to identify what the Trojan can steal from you”.

Peter Coroneos, CEO of the Internet Industry Association (IIA), was on hand as a speaker to extol the groundbreaking policies for the internet industry introduced by his organisation and the contribution being made to IIA by TrustDefender.

TrustDefender are ahead of the game at waging war on cybercrime but they also know how to ‘upload’ a good corporate party.  This was certainly no ‘nerdy’ affair with guests amicably mingling and enjoying the excellent wines and food on offer at The Penthouse.

MiSociety came away from the function thinking that perhaps the much used phrase ‘beware of the elephant in the room’ should now be rivaled by another ‘beware of the Trojan on your browser’!
