At 6pm there will be a brief talk on "Why understanding your security posture matters?" by Charl van der Walt (20 mins)
I believe we as IT and security practitioners and leaders find ourselves in the of a very important struggle that is impacting the way the world works and threatening many of the freedoms we have come to cherish. I would like to talk to you - not about how good or bad our cybersecurity posture is - but why it matters, and why we as professionals in this space need to be taking the question more seriously than ever before.
We all understand that risk is a function of both likelihood and impact. Generally when we think about our security posture as an industry we're thinking about likelihood - how probable is it that our security will fail and bad things will happen will happen to the businesses we protect. This is of course a valid and important perspective, but it allows us at times to ignore the other dimension of risk - the potential impact when something bad happens. When assessing risk we have to recognize that when the potential impact is high enough - when the potential for harm or damage is so severe - even the slightest possibility of an event occurring cannot be tolerated.
So I want to talk about that second element of the risk: what it could mean for us if we fail to fulfill our mandate of ensuring a safe and secure online environment for governments, businesses and people to do business in.
Who will you meet in the evening?
