E1: Complexity is the Enemy of Security – Take it Out

Thursday, June 8, 2023 9:15 AM - 10:15 AM

Room 503/504


Join Steve Winterfeld to talk about how we can start to take some complexity out of our security programs. This talk will explore some of the most common sources of complexity and cover both where we should focus to maximize risk reduction and some best practices to eliminate complexity. It will use ‘Triple Extortion’ threat for a use case. It is time to step back and see where we can address some of the unnecessary risk we have accumulated over time!

Learner Objectives

1. How to reduce risk though eliminating complexity 2. How to partner with other organizations to maximize integration 3. How to build security controls to address Triple Extortion
