Dr. Frank Dudek - Accelerating Cybersecurity – Is Your Information Security Program Up to Speed?
Dec 18, 2018

Internet content providers rely on fast, modern webapps and feature-rich web frameworks to drive customers to their sites. In a landscape of accelerating change and continuous code deployment, my keynote will discuss how a company’s cybersecurity program must evolve to remain effective in such fast-paced environments.

The Changing Face of Resilience
Nov 10, 2022

Resilience has been changing over the last 15-20 years, where we now accept and acknowledge the various types of reslience an organisation should be responding to. This session will explore how security has moved from a focus on just protection to faster detection and response. It will aso explore what the fast moving technologies mean for other types of resilience that organisations will be faced with in the coming future, and what they can do about it.

Richard Struse - Let Them Chase Our Robots
May 09, 2017

The economics of cybersecurity have long favored the attacker. Adversaries skillfully harness automation to increase their advantage while benefiting from their victim’s fragmented and uncoordinated defenses. Automated Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) ecosystems hold the promise of changing these economics in favor of the defender. This keynote will highlight the promises of CTI along with the challenges we still must overcome if we are to realize the full potential of this opportunity.

Understanding and Dealing with Macro-Level Risks that Affect your Institution’s Risk Profile
May 17, 2015

The concept of "think globally, act locally" has new meaning in the context of business organization risk from IoT, the cloud and other networked information system functions. The local instances of information functions on which businesses increasingly rely are part of data and identity “supply chains” that are hybrids of technology and policy that are themselves increasingly part of vast global networks where individual businesses often perceive a loss of leverage and control and increased risk. In effect, federated and cloud based data and identity functions are enabling these functions to be outsourced, like shipping, payroll, accounting and other company functions that have previously been outsourced to global networks.

Bringing it All Together – Distributed Strategy Solutions for Distributed Risk
May 16, 2015

In evaluating distributed systems risk, the attention to data is misdirected. Rather it is the distributed nature of data management systems (and the increase in interaction volume) that increase the perception and actuality of risk. Distributed problems need distributed solutions. Applying the community of interest approach – how can your organization more effectively reduce and manage risk?

Tech Guidance in the Era of Polycrisis & AI-Driven Disruptive Change
May 11, 2023

The most interesting thing about recent AI innovations in the field of LLMs (Large Language Models) such as ChatGPT is that there is not much discussion going on about the effects LLMs will have on our daily lives, the way we consume information, seek guidance and the way we create information. Will we still need Identity Governnance Tools in 5 years time or will a universal cyber-AI have taken over the task of securely running the enterprise you currently work for? What about Tech Analysts and their guidance work? Will 90% of their work be done by non-humans? In this session we will try to jointly find answers on how tech guidance and consulting/advisory will change and, at least partly, disappear.

And this is how ChatGPT would write the Abstract of this discussion:     

The session on "Tech Guidance in the Era of Polycrisis & AI Driven Disruptive Change" will examine the increasing disruptive pressure on today´s business models caused by an evolving landscape of AI driven technology and the critical role of tech analysts to help organizations navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by the convergence of multiple crisis and the rapid pace of technological change.

Topics to be covered include the evolving role of tech analysts in an AI-driven world, the importance of understanding the ethical implications of technology, and the impact of technological change on job markets and society as a whole. The session will also delve into the challenges of staying abreast of an increasingly complex and rapidly changing technological landscape, as well as the importance of fostering a culture of innovation and collaboration within organizations.

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with speakers and other participants in a lively discussion of these critical issues, gaining valuable insights into the future role of tech analysts in helping organizations succeed in an era of polycrisis and AI-driven change and disruption.

Trends & Innovation Panel: What Are the Most Important Innovations and Who Are the Innovators?
May 25, 2016

The idea of this trends & innovation panel is to give each panelist the opportunity to tell the audience what company or companies out there are doing something innovative, what it is, why it is important and why the audience should care track the company. For example, one of the panelists might talk about how the perimeter is disappearing and it’s important to be thinking about governance, security and privacy for cloud properties like Salesforce, Workday, etc. The only restriction on panelists is that they are not allowed to talk about their own products or products from anyone on the panel.

Dr. Scott David, LL.M. - Digital Transformation: New Dimensions of Risk and Risk Mitigation
May 14, 2015

As value propositions for organizations have changed, risks and risk mitigation strategies have changed along with them. When value was derived chiefly from physical property, risk involved more traditional theft or destruction of property and the technologies of fences and vaults, and fire extinguishers and insurance were developed to mitigate such risk to physical property. When value propositions migrated increasingly to services, risk of loss of proprietary secrets emerged, and mechanisms of secrets and confidential information were deployed to mitigate the risk of loss of such intangibles. The digitization of information led to new intangibles markets and new risk mitigation (in the form of information flow controls such as DRM and encryption).

Revealing Hidden Dimensions of Security Beyond Data Secrecy
Nov 14, 2023

The presentation will provide a framing to help attendees navigate the rapid transition from yesterday’s industrial age security paradigms to future approaches for sustaining reliable information systems.

The talk will identify 13 emerging non-technical information risk trends, ranging from human hallucination and cognitive narcissism to institutional paradigm collapse and perimeter fetishism to Capitalist power overreach (and several others) that are having current, real-world security impacts, but which remain unaddressed in cybersecurity strategies and deployments. 

Solutions will be suggested and explored across business, operating, legal, technical, social, political, economic, biological and even evolutionary pathways, offering a toolkit of options that attendees can immediately apply in their organizations’ security program. Specific strategies for managing, de-risking and leveraging near and long-term personal and professional interactions in this steep part of the curve of exponential change will be suggested.
