Strategic Systems was thrilled to attend Triangle InfoSeCon, on October 26, 2018. Hosted by the Raleigh chapter of the Internet Systems Security Association (ISSA), InfoSeCon is the premier information security conference in the Southeast. InfoSeCon aims to educate and support information security professionals so they can better protect the information trusted to them.
Triangle InfoSeCon 2018 began with keynote speaker Malcolm Harkins, Chief Security and Trust Officer at Cylance Inc. Harkins spoke about gaining trust and the economics of insecurity in the digital age. He also shared real world non-security-related stories on the approach to controls and where organizations have made trade-offs with both positive and negative societal impacts.
Each of our team members scheduled their day, attending sessions on topics such as:
- Ransomware Success Stories
- How Secure is Your Cloud?
- Practical and Affordable Ransomware Protection
- Trends in Technology
- How to Measure Your Attack Surface and Reduce Cyber Risk
- Malware is a Red Herring
- InfoSec Career Pathways
Between sessions, we enjoyed visiting sponsor booths and learning about their products. We also had fun in the Star Wars themed photobooth. #SquadGoals was the perfect sign for us.
Triangle InfoSeCon 2018 ended with a talk by keynote speaker Brett Johnson, the owner of AnglerPhish. A former cybercriminal, he has a unique perspective on information security and cybercrime. He spoke about how he went from a member of the FBI’s Most Wanted list to a leader in cybersecurity as well as how modern cybercrime works, detailing the way criminals interact and share information. He also gave valuable information about what you can do to protect yourself, your family, and your organization against cybercrime.
