Keynote Topic – Protecting Your Network: Solving Existing Vulnerabilities with Zero Trust

In 1995 we surfed the Web using Netscape, connected to the web with a land-line modem and used HTTPS to protect our data in flight. In 2021, we have our choice of browsers, our cell phones have gigabit speed, but the dirty little secret of cybersecurity is that we are still using the same 30 year old protocol to secure our data as it moves. If this doesn’t sound secure that’s because it isn’t. With the recent Solar Winds hack the vulnerability of our secrets is more apparent than ever.

Collectively, we have a blind spot that is affecting every online communication or transaction from banking to healthcare to any industry sending financial or sensitive information over the internet. New ways of thinking about the problem are required to innovate new solutions.

KnectIQ will discuss why these existing solutions keep failing and a fundamentally new approach to securing data in flight that removes the single largest threat surface to the security of end to end encryption. With this new, Zero Trust based approach data is not only far more secure, but verifiably so and threats can be detected in real time, even with compromised credentials.

Cybercriminals aren’t using 30 year old solutions and neither should you.

SpeakerJessica Chappell

Jessica Chappell


I retired from the U.S. Marine Corps in 2014, with no clue at all what I wanted to do!  My incredible wife was a successful chef in the local restaurant industry, so naturally I ended up in the industry as well.  I started working as a cashier in a food truck, and over the next few years, I learned to cook, learned electrical wiring, plumbing, even how to replace some diesel engine parts, and ended up as the truck and operations manager over two very successful food trucks in the Raleigh Durham area, serving out my wife’s delicious chinese style dumplings and dim-sum.  I still had little inkling of what I wanted to do long term, but I knew our family was growing as we were expecting a second child and management in the restaurant industry doesn’t mesh well with seeing your family.  In early 2018, my wife reminded me that I used to really enjoy technology as a kid, and pushed me towards computers.  I enrolled in some networking and security classes at a local career college, where I met an amazing instructor and mentor who pushed me further.

I of course got ambitious while working on a project for his Network+ class, where I discovered my true calling, problem solving.  Initially I had taken it upon myself to try and use Kali Linux, Python, and a TP-Link wifi adapter to try and capture the handshake of the instructor wifi network, as the student’s was notoriously slow.  With me of course, it turned into a project on debugging the linux installation, discovering incompatible hardware drivers, editing drivers, grub configurations, bios settings, and finally making kernel edits to get the wifi adapter to work, with my best friend google as my only resource.  Leave it to me to discover Virtual Machines after the fact!
