UPDATE: Please use the following link for the current agenda. The one in the post is outdated: https://sintixerr.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/cyber-program_1020.pdf

Progress! As you can see below, we’ve confirmed several additional speakers such as Tony Stramella from the NSA and Steve Carmel from Maersk (who was a fantastic speaker last year – he talked about his experiences with maritime piracy and pirates! Did I mention he talked about pirates??).

The Offensive perspective panel (Kevin Finisterre, Ruben Santamarta/Reversemode, and hopefully Josh Wright) is going to rock out with some talented vulnerability researchers and Mark Fabro will do his always brilliant job of improving the discourse. 

We’ll be excited to hear Bryan Sartin discuss the past year’s data breaches and front-line experts in the field let us know how the stuff you’ve heard in the news might apply to you (Scot Terban, Liam from Symantec, and the now-short-haired Adam Meyers). 

Boeing and Darryl Song from Volpe are going to dish on transportation-specific concerns, and the CTO of the CIA will drive home the need for security to be data-centric. 

Mike Murray will be both entertaining and captivating – even if I dont know his talk yet – and Russell Thomas will bring a much needed formal perspective to risk management and cyber security. 

Patrick Gray gives a lightning fast, but insightful presentation on social media, Jack Johnson will help us understand financial issues facing organizations today, and Amit Yoran will talk about…whatever. He’s just a smart guy.

Hope you can make it. If you’re interested in attending, the registration link is here: Invitation.

(Please, if you’re a vendor and plan on selling, we’ll take a pretty dim view of that at this particular conference. )

So, one of the things I get to do as part of my job which has been pretty exciting is to put together the agenda for our 2nd annual Cyber Security in Transportation summit. It’s happening November 1 & 2 this year in the DC area and is going to be full of outstanding talks for all ages and backgrounds. ;) The summit is aimed at executives and decision makers from within the transportation industry who might be effected by cyber security or whos actions may affect the security of their organizations. We’re covering general cyber security themes as well as transportation specific ones. If you’re in the transportation sector – pipeline, aviation, freight rail, mass transit, highway & motor carrier – and want to attend, let me know at sintixerr@gmail.com.

The tentative agenda currently looks like this:
