Abstract

We have spent so much time focusing on Red and the images of security ninjas leaping off tall walls with laptops and grappling tools that the role of “blue” has been left in the dark…it’s underrated, nobody wants to do the job and typically it’s under appreciated and the unloved discipline…it’s time to change that. The focus on red has done nothing to help the industry protect our charges, we are still failing to protect those around us and we’re still watching helplessly while companies lose all the data we’re meant to protect…so time to change the focus. This talk will go through what’s happening in the industry to force this line of thinking, what WE need to do as an industry and where we have to take the concepts of communication and collaboration…We’ll look at several scenario’s and technologies that are helping reshape security and generally throw the crystal ball out to the future and help everyone understand that change needs to happen...
