Event Information

In this presentation, John Gomez, CEO of Sensato, will present a thesis first established in his podcast Tactical Cybersecurity. The theory is based on two questions; both put forth to him by CISOs after a breach. How were the attackers successful given how well we have done in our assessments, and what scares an attacker? During this dynamic and lively presentation, John will dive into the background of these questions, provide context to what makes an assessment and security framework successful or fail and share the results of research when over 100 attackers asked – what scares you? Learning Objectives:
  • Allow the attendee to identify practices that create a false sense of security.
  • Identify the one true test of cybersecurity maturity.
  • Identify technologies and practices that cause concern to cyber attackers.
  • Utilize maturity as a means to illustrate risk to executives and colleagues.
