TEN CRAZY IDEAS FOR FIXING SECURITY
The security industry is growing like never before — not just in the number of startups and ideas, but in investments and valuation. And yet some of these “new ideas” seem awfully familiar (don’t IOCs sound a lot like signatures to you?). The number of breaches isn’t decreasing; vulnerabilities are discovered on a daily basis, sometimes after having been around for decades. Maybe what we need is some outside-the-sandbox thinking. In this session, 451 Research director Wendy Nather will throw out the data from over 1,000 security vendors and start fresh with some ideas so crazy, they just might work. No sacred cows will be admitted to the keynote except in the form of BBQ brisket.
