“We believe our information is private and thus secure. In reality, we’re more concerned about losing our digital experience than our data collected in the process.”

CEO Reg Harnish of GreyCastle Security, a leading cybersecurity consulting firm focused on the human side of security clients which counts Fortune 500 and Global 100 organizations among its clients, will lead a discussion on Tuesday, May 3 on the ironies of privacy and security in a digitally driven world at ISACA’s North America Computer Audit Control and Security (CACS) Conference in New Orleans. Established in 1869, ISACA has become an international leader in the development and adoption of industry knowledge and globally accepted practices for information systems. ISACA’s North America conference is specifically designed for industry experts in IS audit, assurance security and risk management, and will address the latest developments in the industry while allowing members to earn 39 CPE hours.

“In a digital world, we believe our information is private and thus secure. We go online to rant about our right to privacy while allowing search engines like Google to collect our digital footprint,” says Harnish. “In reality, we’re more concerned about losing our digital experience than our data collected in the process.”

Hell is Empty and All the Devils Are Here - Tuesday, May 3 at 8:30 a.m.:
Join GreyCastle Security as we explore the ironies of privacy and security in a digital world. Attendees will get a fresh and thought-provoking twist on how to survive on a diet of poisoned fruit. The right to privacy has become the corollary to the assurances of security – both counter-intuitive in the information age and ironic in their implementations. Security does not necessarily help nor hinder privacy, and privacy cares as much about security as it does about bowling: They are not often interconnected, and even when they are they oscillate independently. Agree or disagree, because it doesn't matter anyway. Privacy has become a currency -- the only one accepted at Internet endpoints all over the world. It's a pay-to-play world, and while we reluctantly eat the cookies of our Internet favorites, we collectively decide that a diet of digital abstinence tastes far worse. Our data collectors lack transparency, and we're okay with that. We donate our deepest, darkest secrets to Google search histories while posting our rants about privacy rights on Facebook. The system is broken and that's just how we like it.

GreyCastle Security focuses on managing the risks in people, processes and technology -- as opposed to simply deploying the latest hardware and software solutions. The company was founded in 2011 by an experienced team of CISOs, ISOs, security specialists and operators who recognize the need for a systematic approach to cybersecurity.
