Our November chapter meeting is hosted by Alticom in their IJsselstein data center.
Alticom provides datacenter services from a total of 24 high-altitude media towers spread out across the Netherlands.Perfectly suited for datacenters.
Originally, the Alticom media towers served to facilitate broadcasting of television and radio signals. The towers are also essential to the wireless networks run by Dutch mobile telecom operators. Digitization of radio and television, as well as increasing use of satellite and fiberglass cables, have rendered much of the analog equipment used in the towers obsolete. As such equipment was removed, the question became: what to do with this empty space?
As it turned out, uninterrupted power supply, presence of emergency power facilities, high security levels, and elaborate connectivity options provided these towers with the perfect building blocks for datacenters. Consequently, Alticom has been using the space made available for provision of datacenter services.

Knowledge sharing session in Driebergen
With presentations from Cor Rosielle on OSSTMM and Ot van Daalen on privacy, it was an interesting evening.
A security professional often spends time on Compliancy and Risk Management.
Even if he does both, there remain a lot of practical questions:
- What should be protected first?
- What protection solutions helps best?
- How to spend money wisely on security controls?
- How much does security improve when using the intended solutions?
Cor Rosielle explains operational security metrics using OSSTMM.
Privacy and security lawyer Ot van Daalen discussed privacy tips and
pitfalls for security professionals. After this lecture, you will be
able to evaluate IT-solutions from a privacy perspective and know which
risks your compliance colleagues are most worried about.
CPE’s for members who joined the Event are submitted to (ISC)2! They will be automatically added to your account. A service for Members!
