Cybersecurity for the “Have-Nots” of the World – Jake Williams
October 20 @ 2:00 pm – 2:50 pm MDT
Presented by: Jake Williams
The cybersecurity landscape can broadly be broken down into dividing between the “haves” vs the “have-nots.” The security recommendations offered by so many of “just deploy X” fall on deaf ears to the *vast majority* of organizations who fall into the latter category of “have-nots.” Until the security gap for the “have-nots” of the world is closed, we’re doomed to continue failing at security overall (/screams in “software supply chain”).
