Session 2 – A radical not-so-new idea to stop the daily barrage of data breaches
Today’s Bad guys already know how our security measures work, because they spend all day probing good guys and all night collaborating to improve the next day’s probes. When good guys keep it all secret, we only cripple ourselves. If we want to stop the daily barrage of data breaches, we need to get serious about collaborating. Embrace open. Subject our security measures to public scrutiny. Endure the embarrassment, improve, and repeat. This is a counter-intuitive proposal, but the debate is around 170 years old
About the Speaker:
D. Greg Scott helps the world’s largest open source software company support the world’s largest telecom companies. Nights and weekends, he works on novels and researches ways to mount cyberattacks, hijack trucks, and blow up buildings. Youtube taught him how to detonate bombs with a cell phone. That contributed to a Virus Bomb scene. Some of Greg’s friends tell him he’s probably on a number of government watch lists. If so, then Greg asks all the hard-working and dedicated professionals watching his internet movements to buy copies of his novels for themselves and everyone in their departments before it’s too late. Greg lives in Minnesota with his wife, daughter, two grandsons, three cats, one dog, and other creatures that come and go.
