Jayson Street will be speaking on the following topic:

International Keynote Speaker You're right, this talk isn't really about you!

"Stupid user clicked on a link", "Social engineering, because there's no patch for human stupidity" and "Make it simple enough that the CEO can understand it". Blaming users is not helpful. Instead of hiding our failures behind simplified excuses and jokes, let's address the elephant in the room. We need to find a solid way to approach and rectify the issues at hand. Technology is not our problem, human behaviour is! In this presentation, we will discuss topics related to human behaviour, which need to be modified for the sake of better security.

  • A mirror will be held up to our industry as we inspect how we can better teach and interact with others
  • Examine some important questions head-on and walk away with a better path for understanding the true issues we are facing
