Let’s Talk Security In Practice

Hi, I’m Ed – an engineer by trade, CEO by day, and accidental security expert.

For two decades, I’ve been fortunate to have crossed paths with respected industry luminaries and practitioners. On a regular basis, I invite them to discuss practical approaches to securing the software ecosystem based on today’s realities: complex tech stacks, evolving threats, motivated attackers, mounting regulations, and unsettling skill gaps.

Come join us. You may laugh, cry, reflect, or learn – just like your relationship with security. Either way, Ed Talks will be:

Securing Technology in the Payment ecosystem

The payment ecosystem is a complex one that is exposed from multiple points: Data interception, identify theft, and other attacks primarily target insecure software, APIs, and communication protocols that are difficult to lock down.

To secure data within the payment infrastructure retailers, software providers, financial institutions, and device manufacturers need to implement risk-based practices. Come hear three industry experts discuss how to do this in a practical manner. Topics include:

  • Biggest threats and common attack vectors
  • Dealing with POS (point of sale) systems
  • End to End encryption – is it even possible?
  • Managing software updates
  • Passing with A’s: Authentication, Authorization & Access

November 19 @ 3:00pm EST

Industry leaders discuss the need for a purpose-driven and security mindset.

With the proliferation of COTS, Open Source Software, libraries, frameworks, APIs, and other components, modern software is increasingly assembled instead of coded from scratch.

There’s no doubt the cloud can deliver on the promises of improved scalability, availability, and security; however, consumers need to do their part.

"The Security Principles Panel had impressive panelists and very relevant topics."
