Keynote: Next generation security awareness
Speaker: David Lacey
In a hyper-connected world there are no secure boundaries. Physical and technical measures alone will not guarantee security. Professional attacks penetrate enterprises through mistakes by users who can be persuaded to click on infected web pages or email attachments. The only solution is continuous education and reminders in the nature of the risks to users and their own security responsibilities. It is not an exact science, and demands knowledge, skills and artifacts which are not adequately addressed in computer science courses. This presentation examines the state of the art in security awareness and the techniques needed to achieve the maximum impact on users.
