The 14 Absolute Truths of Security

  • Keith Palmgren
  • Wednesday, March 15th, 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Many security professionals like to say that there are no absolutes in security. But there are! In fact, there are at least 14 Absolute Truths of Security. These facts about security remain true regardless of circumstance, network topology, organizational type, or any other variable.

Recognizing these absolute truths and how they affect a security program can lead to the success of that program. Failing to recognize these truths will spell almost certain doom. In this 60 minute talk we will take a non-technical look at each of the 14 Absolute Truths in turn. We will examine what they mean to the security manager, what they mean to the security posture, and how understanding them will lead to a successful security program.

This talk focuses primarily on the managerial aspect of a successful security program. The talk presents information that is vital to understand for any manager who is responsible for security. It also helps security technicians understand the non-technical aspects of security that effect their daily lives. You will see security principles presented in completely new and different ways. You will learn to think of security from a whole new perspective.
