Remember When We Called It Information Security – Let’s Go Back to That!

John Pescatore, SANS Institute, Director of Emerging Security 3PM – 4PMRemember When We Called It Information Security – Let’s Go Back to That!

This is a presentation which is very focused on using stronger authentication than ever and more stringent encryption than in the past. This talk will address how and why talking about cybersecurity has caused authentication and encryption to be under looked and have low penetration.

John Pescatore, SANS Institute, Director of Emerging Security Trends;

John Pescatore is certainly one of the world’s most influential thought leaders in IT Security. John is a “Security Lifer” based on his 40 years in our industry at SANS, Gartner, GTE, TIS, IDC and the NSA.

Recent writings: “How Security Improvements Reduce Business Outages”, “ Rogue IT has seen the benefit of using the cloud, too!” and “Patches are like vaccines: Low quality leads to long-lasting resistance and self-inflicted wounds.” 

John’s most famous quotes include: Security is important for cell phones because it is much more likely that a user will lose that device than a laptop or desktop computer.” and  “The open-source community hasn’t learned to do bare-knuckle marketing yet. But every time Microsoft has these problems, it helps Linux in a very big way.”
