His presentation is titled, Cybersecurity Maturity from Oxymoron to Inevitable.

Cybersecurity was historically treated as the domain of Wizards – clever (and often scruffy)_ practitioners, speaking incomprehensible languages and wielding mysterious technology, fending off magial “advanced and persistent” and “nation-state” adversaries.  But over the last few years, cybersecurity has rapidly moved into the mainstream of risk decision making; from the domain of techno-wizardry into a core business and social concern.  Every day individuals, enterprises, and governments make decisions about risks that are dependent on information technology, often implicitly, sometimes unknowingly.

In the business, you sometimes hear of Cybersecurity “Maturity”, but that generally refers to getting better at doing cyberscurity – more capable, consistent, repeatable, able to deliver under stress. But the foundational need for maturity is the role it must play in our individual and collective decision-making about business and social risks, and how it can help us understand and take action on risks that are dependent on Information Technology.


Friday, May 21 from 4:10 to 5:10 pm,

Damon Hacker, President & CEO at Vestige Digital Investigations is on a panel presentation on the topic of:

Technical and Legal Implications of the Growth in Supply Chain Cyberattacks

 2020 was the best year on record…for supply chain cyberattacks. While incidents involving SolarWinds and Microsoft dominated the headlines for their impact and technical sophistication, attacks that originate from third-parties are coming off a banner year. According to DevOps research by Sonatype, supply chain attacks are up 430% year over year, with particular impact on vendors and software components that are used by large organizations around the world.

In this panel, we’ll dive into why supply chain attacks are exploding in popularity and discuss practical techniques for staying resilient in the face of this increasingly challenging attack vector.
