Fireside Chat

Christopher Painter (invited), Eugene H. Spafford

Listen in while four renowned security professionals chat about security. Members of the audience will be able to suggest topics to raise.

Panel Discussions:

Security Analytics, Analysis and Measurement – How Secure are you? Given access to data and processes inside your organization, at the firewall, and from the cloud, what can you determine about the security of your organization and efficacy of your security controls. What can you really learn and understand from all this big data being collected? (Summary)

Security Education and Training – What defines a security professional? What should be taught – at what depth – as part of the profession? What should students know and how should education respond to the changes in threats, availability of technologies, and advances in pedagogy? (Summary)

NSTIC, Trusted Identities and the Internet – Various activities on the internet require differing levels of identity and authentication; from full anonymous (e.g. political speech) to highly-trusted for access to proprietary data. How do we construct models and how do we make it work across national and economic boundaries? (Summary)
