15th Annual e-Crime Congress
“The old world is dying, and the new world struggles to be born; now is the time of monsters,”
“We’ve done a lot over the past five years and spent quite a lot of money … it hasn’t worked,”
Alex Dewedney, director of cybersecurity at CESG (the information security arm of GCHQ )
"The cyber-security industry is fundamentally broken,"
After 15 years of leading the market, the 15th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Congress will mark the beginning of a new era in cyber-security, cyber-crime, cyber-warfare and cyber-law enforcement.
Amit Yoran, President RSA
The old, niche, same-old-same-old world of cyber security is over. The people, methods and processes of the past are not the template for the future. Why?
The industrialization of cyber-crime demands entirely new responses from both the public sector (inadequate law enforcement locally, lack of agreement globally) and the private sector (recognition of an enterprise-scale risk.)
Scale and sophistication change everything:
The 15th e-Crime and Security Congress will not be more of the same-old same-old. To mark the end of the old and the beginning of the new we will be addressing the real issues in cyber-security, the real truths facing CISOs and their boards and the real challenges for law enforcement, governments, solution providers and enterprises.
They raise the probability of attack and of loss for everyone which means it becomes a risk boards start to look at.
They increase third-party scrutiny, which creates the kinds of financial effects that boards respond to (look at Yahoo/Verizon).
They make cyber-security a proper enterprise risk-management problem, not a niche tech/training problem.
They mean that the role of CISO (or whatever it comes to be called) becomes better defined (right now CISOs can be anywhere from the C-suite to several management layers below the head of IT.)
They mean cyber-security will be transformed as it becomes a fully accepted part of enterprise business management.
They mean the vendor landscape will dramatically alter because the problem is dramatically changing.
