The San Francisco RSA conference is now less than two weeks away, and this year I am moderating two great panels. I thought I'd reach out and solicit suggestions for discussion.
1) Too Big to Fail: CISO Panel on Scaling Security in the Era of Big Data
This Forrester-moderated panel of top security executives from Allergan, Zappos and Humana will discuss the impact of scale in solving Big Security challenges. Issues from the importance of scale in detecting advanced threats to benefits to the average user will be debated. Drawing on their experiences, these experts will share their views on why scale matters in the era of big data.
David Hannigan, Zappos, Information Security Officer
Stephen Moloney, Humana Inc., Manager, Enterprise Information Security
Jerry Sto. Tomas, Allergan, Inc., Director, IS Global Information Security
2) 50 Minutes Into the Future: Tomorrow's Malware Threats
Predicting what malware will look like five years from now requires more than a crystal ball. In order to fully understand future threats and challenges, you need a finger on the broader pulse of technological innovation. Our panel of esteemed experts will attempt to guide a better understanding of where we may need to target our defensive efforts in the coming months and years.
Jaime Blasco, AlienVault, Manager, Lab and Vulnerability Research Team
Andrew Brandt, Solera Networks, Director of Threat Research at Solera Networks
Dave Marcus, McAfee, Director and Chief Architect, Threat Research and Intelligence
