(In)Security Is Eating The World: How To Build A Security Program That Succeeds

December 9, 2019
8:35am - 9:20am
Essex Ballroom

Over the past 15 years, Michael Coates has protected the data of hundreds of millions of users worldwide while leading security teams at Twitter and Mozilla. In his opening keynote, Michael will draw on his experience securing some of the world’s most complex networks and bring to light the threats that exist and provide a roadmap for securing the future of technology.

Technology has transformed nearly every segment of our lives and will continue to dramatically impact the future.

As healthcare knows all too well, the fundamentals of security may be simple, but the implementation is not. There is a massive interconnection of technologies, an explosion of data, time to market drivers, and human interpretation.

On top of this, every day we see examples of critical security failures impacting technology and, ultimately, our lives.

The solution to this chaos is not to employ more humans toiling for security. The future requires a dramatic shift to autonomy, scale, and speed. Automate or die. Join Michael as you journey through a talk of controversial stances and hard realities to uncover a strategy for securing the future of technology.


Chief Information Security Officer
