KEYNOTE SPEAKER 3: Dr. Anton Chuvakin (Director of Compliance Solutions @ Qualys)

Filed under: Main Page — Administrator @ 10:51 am

Presentation Title: Welome to the 0wned World
Presentation Abstract:

Have you often wondered why people are updating their security policies while attackers are owning their systems – at the same time? Why consultants advice management on ‘risk tolerance’ while new bots are being deployed on what was formerly known as ‘your network’? Why some say that “DLP is all the rage” while record data losses occur daily?

Reality today often gives a vision of “two securities”: one concerned with ‘elevating the infosec conversation’ while the other is concerned with cleaning up the mess on our networks and systems. This very concept, that I call “security chasm,” will be the subject of my keynote presentation, along with such questions as “why we wear seatbelts because of the monetary fine, but not because of risk to our lives?” and “What will make use secure?” (and what does it actually mean!)

Finally, I will explore the future of what we now call ’security industry’ and make a few long term predictions of where we will end up in a few years…
