On June 4, 5 and 6, Marcus Ranum will be keynoting the SÉCURITÉ DES TECHNOLOGIES DE L'INFORMATION ET DE LA COMMUNICATION in Rennes, France.
Marcus will begin the conference with his keynote titled: “Anatomy of The Security Disaster”. Computer security has historically been a disaster and continues to be a disaster. Many practitioners have attempted to explain it in terms of risk management, failure to communicate, or lack of education. In reality, it is a simpler social problem, and is not solvable by any means short of a redesign of human behavior. The view he will present has implications for the real meaning behind why economic models represent “market failures” and risk management approaches are merely “hand-waving.”
