Overview

RANT is proud to be working together again with our host IP EXPO and our proud partner Osirium to host a Special RANT Forum, this event will be held within the exhibition hall at the “The Cyber Hack Area” on the first day of IP EXPO Europe.

Topic

The whole Infosec industry: We’re doing it all wrong…

In this talk, Andy Harris discusses reconstructing ideas around the role of the CISO, and the relationship between this and Big Business.

“The Role of CISO is wrong. We’re putting emphasis on protecting the wrong things. We’re protecting things the wrong way. The board are ignoring our risk and value analysis. Shadow IT is bypassing everything.”

The RANT Roundtable Dinner was a very good evening. I met some interesting people and there was some lively discussion on various topics. I’d also like to mention some positive engagement that came about after last year’s Infosec Rant. Thanks to a very topical discussion at RANT on Neurodiversity, I was introduced to a group of neuro diverse students studying Information Security in Worcester, who joined me on a Pentesting project within my organisation. This project provided them with exceptional work experience and allowed us all to learn from each other. This successful project will hopefully be run again this year, and is all thanks to a conversation held at a Rant event.

There's a genuine air of conviction (of the right sort) around the challenges you get from the audience when speaking at a RANT event. Quite happy to come away with two falls and a submission rather than the usual conference group therapy.
