Winn Schwartau is scheduled to present at Hacker Halted which will be held from October 29-31st in Miami, FL. His keynote presentation will commence on October 29th. Hacker Halted will draw a wide range of information security professionals with different job functions in different industries. EC-Council’s conference is the perfect platform for thought-leaders such as Mr. Schwartau to present cutting-edge information on the latest trends and issues plaguing the cyber community.
Mr. Schwartau is famous for his thought-provoking and controversial presentations, which have a way of getting his audiences riled up. His presentations have become standard fare and dogma in the cyberwar and cybersecurity communities.
“I felt the Hacker Halted audience would be able to understand the kinds of challenges needed if we are going to truly ever have strong economic and national cyber defense.” Mr. Schwartau said. He continued, “I say the things people think but are either too afraid to say or think are “just too hard” to get done. I expect to annoy about 20% of the audience with total political incorrectness.”
Winn’s presentation on “Solving the Cyber Security Hiring Crisis” could not come at a more critical time as the need for increased protection of government networks, critical infrastructure and private sector enterprises is at an all time high.
According to Mr. Schwartau, “The information security industry needs a top-down change in the way security experts are chosen.” Mr.Schwartau went on to say, “A stronger management over the skill sets needed to provide the best possible cyber defense will make for a much stronger and effective workforce.” To find out more information about Winn Schwartau’s presentation at Hacker Halted or to attend the conference, please visit: http://www.hackerhalted.com/2012/.
