The Future of Cybersecurity

Keren Elazari, GSX 2020 General Session speaker

Keren Elazari, CISSP
Security Analyst, Researcher, and Public Speaker

Cybersecurity is no longer about protecting secrets. It’s about our way of life: from transportation systems to medical devices, or the manipulation of global markets and political campaigns.

While hackers are typically thought of and depicted in media as breaking into a network from a remote location, the reality is often quite different. Many network breaches begin with a physical breach. Using social engineering, picking a lock, or otherwise breaking into a facility can be the fastest and easiest way for a cyber criminal to get easy access to a network. Once inside, they can steal a laptop or other device, or slip into a server room and simply plug in. It takes only the slightest crack in the cyber armor to enable a devastating attack. Every citizen, consumer, and business owner has a responsibility to ensure that correct protocols are in place at all times. Are you thinking about how you can protect your assets?

This talk will be a journey through the world of cybersecurity, from a hacker’s perspective. and Elazari understands this perspective much better than most. Knowing that hackers can be instrumental in identifying vulnerabilities and solving tech problems, she has worked with leading Israeli security firms, government organizations, big 4 and fortune 500 companies—covering emerging security technologies as an independent strategic analyst and advisor.

Keren Elazari, a former hacker turned cybersecurity expert, is an internationally celebrated speaker, researcher, and author on all matters of cybersecurity. Her 2014 TED talk, viewed by millions, helped shape the global conversation about the role of hackers and the evolution of cybersecurity in the information age.
