"Best Practices Meet" in Chennai, India, on Friday, July 12.
"DSCI Best Practices Meet aims at bringing security professionals
together to collaborate and engage in thought-provoking discussions
on security and privacy issues," said Dr. Kamlesh Bajaj, CEO DSCI.
"This year we conducted a technical paper presentation competition,
in association with Cisco and IEEE. It was heartening to observe that
all the papers were infused with fresh ideas and innovative
approaches to strengthen network security.
"I congratulate Steven Sprague from Wave Systems who won the best
paper award, Asit More and Shashikala Tapaswi from ABV Indian

the first runners up and Santosh Krishna Putchala, Rajanna Anitha

as best in class. The message that network access and service
delivery should be allowed or denied based on the device, as opposed
to the identity of the user, resonated with the panel of judges. This
model has been effectively adopted by the cellular and cable
industries, with instances of fraud and data compromise plummeting in
each case. Trusted Computing technologies enable this new networking
