Keynote: Fixing Network Security by Hacking the Business Climate
Bruce Schneier, CTO, Counterpane Internet Security, Inc.

Track: Keynote
Date: Wednesday, May 15
Time: 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Location: Lawrence

Network security has long been considered an engineering problem, and companies try to solve it by applying technologies. This approach is failing; the technologies are failing and the problem is worsening. What we need are security processes, such as detection, response, and deterrence. However, the only way to get corporate management to adequately address security is to change the risk-management equation. This can be achieved by enforcing liabilities, and giving corporate management the means to reduce or insure against those liabilities. It's only after we do all of these things that the Internet will be a safe and secure place.
