J.J. Thompson, CEO, Rook Consulting
Clean, nice, positive, polite, unobtrusive, under-the-radar security has not worked. The recent flood of successful hacks illustrates security's abysmal failure to hit the target. Large enterprise organizations and government agencies are getting hacked with the same frequency as drink orders at "dollar you call 'er" specials at your local watering hole. When we look at the score, the promise of secure data from PCI compliance, ISO2700x, a slew of state privacy laws, and a plethora of spending on security technology has failed to deliver. In this talk, the presenter discusses what has led to security professionals not only missing the bullseye but missing the target all together and what must be done to zero back in. Go ahead, chug some courage and strap on your boots. It’s time to get serious about effective security.
