In this presentation, Gregory Touhill will discuss today’s cybersecurity landscape. In a provocative and sometimes irreverent presentation, he’ll critically analyze substantive weaknesses in current cybersecurity tactics, techniques, and procedures and share thoughts on how national prosperity and security can and should be improved by taking a different approach to improving cybersecurity (i.e. “skating to where the puck is going to be rather than where it is”).
