Topic: Dance Band on the Titanic: The Data Loss Iceberg Principle


This presentation explores the idea that perhaps all the sensitive data we spend millions on trying to protect has already been compromised. In fact, cyber security is an oxymoron. It compares the losses publicly acknowledged against the widely held principle that may be only a small percentage of the actual losses incurred. If so, a new security paradigm is required but what would this look like? The objectives of this session are to engage the participants to think through the actual premise, challenge their understanding of the current state of cyber security and sound a professional “call to arms” for the future.
