The Future of Cyber Security from a Friendly Hacker’s Perspective
Cybersecurity is no longer about protecting secrets. It’s about our way of life that relies on digital technology, everywhere – from clouds to smartphones, from sensors to webcams, to stock markets and more. Complicating matters more, today’s cybercriminals are innovating just as fast as the digitally innovative organisations they attack.
In this environment, are you and your organization thinking about what’s next?
This talk will inspire executives and techies to act on what matters most. Keren will shed light on emerging security threats, new attack vectors and techniques. Discover what we can learn from friendly hackers and how to work with them. Keren will discuss the future workforce and business challenges in this space and how to foster more diversity in cybersecurity.
Finally, we’ll look at the future of cybersecurity. You’ll learn why resilience will be defined not just by our efforts to balance technology’s benefits against the risks it brings with it, but by how we evolve our paradigms about security, privacy and digital access.
Tap Into The Hacker Mindset – Innovation Lessons we can Learn from Hackers!
In the information age, data is the new currency and access to it is power. With recent battle cries such as “Information wants to be free”, “Hack the planet” and “we are legion”, Hackers have risen to infamy. But can we learn anything about innovation from them?
The surprising fact is that hacking can, and often does, improve products. It exposes vulnerabilities, supplies innovations, and demonstrates what is possible and how consumers want to use technology.
In this talk, we will see how companies that once fought hackers, can now invite them to innovate. Keren will discuss why companies are now learning to embrace the creative aspects of hacker culture.
