What the Secret Service Can Teach Us about CybersecuritySince the Secret Service began protecting the President full time in 1906, only seven attackers have reached the President. From a cybersecurity defender’s perspective, the President is the ultimate high-value asset—incredibly important, but impossible to lock away in a sealed vault. But despite the similarity, the cybersecurity industry record is nowhere close to the Secret Service’s record. This talk will focus on what cybersecurity experts can learn from the Secret Service’s approach.

Security in an Innovation CultureAtlassian’s security team doesn’t do sign-offs or checkpoints before software goes out the door. It launches top secret end-to-end attacks against its own Executive Team and staff, without informing its monitoring teams. It believes “people are still the best detectives,” (rather than technology), and has found that their ability to detect what may be amiss improves the more security scenarios they experience. “Pre-built” communications are at the ready for specific types of threats. From creating a fake Atlassian website that sought to have end users install a remote access tool to sending out an email, purportedly from the Chief People Officer, that included people’s performance ratings, the security group is continually creating innovative scenarios to test weaknesses in incident reporting, user education and its own intelligence capabilities, among other things, using those results to close the gaps. What other lessons can you apply to your own organization?
