Anti-virus myths

On Friday I will be busting a few anti-virus myths at the London International Technology Show.

We'll take a look at performance, both in terms of how much anti-virus software impacts a system's speed and its ability to protect against threats.

We will also attempt to kill off a few platform prejudices (e.g. "I'm safe if I have a Mac"), explore common types of internet threats and reveal some shocking statistics.

If all goes well I'll be able to show a real drive-by attack that would be invisible to a real victim.

There will also be a few tips on improving security in what seems to be an impossibly insecure world.

UPDATE: Gain an exclusive insight into my revolutionary presentational techniques!
