  1. Presentation (7:00 pm – 8:00 pm): The Paradox of InfoSec and the Dropping of a Socket

 

Abstract:

On Sept. 19, 1980, near the small town of Damascus, Arkansas, someone dropped a socket, and it caused a breach. In terms of breaches, it was nuclear! Paradoxical as it may seem, the story of the 1980’s Damascus Titan II explosion showcases how a simple error parallels that of a “nuclear” breach of your company’s security infrastructure. Was the nuclear threat in 1980 preventable? Is a breach of your security environment preventable? Let’s deconstruct those questions and come up with a reasonable answer.

She is responsible for educating companies about the everchanging cybersecurity landscape and help them build a dynamic cybersecurity environment.
