Safety in the Storm: Economical Defense from Existential Security Threats

Matthew Weaver, Partner, Layer Aleph, Former Rogue Leader, United States Digital Service

DESCRIPTION: The expensive & inflexible defensive strategies of increasing oversight, data "zones," multiple firewalls, and certified image/software releases have broadly failed to protect systems, users, or citizens. The speaker will share his experience responding to massive, public security failures at the largest government organizations, their partners, and Fortune 50 companies. Come hear the surprising message of hope: the most effective changes for meaningful defense can be easy on the budget and beneficial for administrators, civil servants, support staff, developers, users & citizens. Be relieved, as you learn that your most valuable help can come from a larger, less constrained talent pool than you expected. Be surprised, as you learn that the heretical truths necessary for the of security your organization, or program, number only five.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Government and business executives, program or project leadership, contractor or government development or operations management, developers or operators of any stripe, community organizers, and NGO executives, management, or staff.
