Failing to Succeed in Cyber Security and Risk Management

  • My-Ngoc Nguyen
  • Wednesday, September 11th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

The word "Failure" (the other bad F word) has such a negative connotation, especially in the cyber security realm. This is because we are taught at an early age that an F is really bad. But is it? This talk will discuss how we need to fail forward in order to better succeed and improve our ability to manage risk. Managing risk is a complicated aspect to effective cyber security. In order to get better at it, we need to embrace calculated failures and mature our risk model.
