Information Systems Security Meeting Fort Bragg Chapter

February 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Talk details:

Gina Yacone – Cybersecurity Consultant – will present THE PARADOX OF INFOSEC AND THE DROPPING OF A SOCKET.

Abstract:

On Sept. 19, 1980, near the small town of Damascus, Arkansas, someone dropped a socket, and it caused a breach. In terms of breaches, it was nuclear! Paradoxical as it may seem, the story of the 1980’s Damascus Titan II explosion showcases how a simple error parallels that of a “nuclear” breach of your company’s security infrastructure. Was the nuclear threat in 1980 preventable? Is a breach of your security environment preventable? Let’s deconstruct those questions and come up with a reasonable answer.
