iSEC Partners, EFF and DEF CON Announce TrustyCon – the First “Trustworthy Technology Conference” – to Take Place February 27th

iSEC Partners:

Who:

     

iSEC Partners, a proven full-service security consulting firm, today announced in collaboration with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and DEF CON that together they will be kicking off a brand-new security technology conference, TrustyCon. The event will prioritize and refocus trust in technology and technology companies, during a time of cynicism and contempt towards consumer security and privacy.

 

When and Where:

February 27, 2014 from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM PT at AMC Metreon (135 4th St #3000, San Francisco). The conference will be held in Theater 15.

 

What:

Following opening remarks from iSEC Partners co-founder Alex Stamos, a full program of panels of security experts and a keynote speaker will tackle the future of trust in technology.
 
The primary agenda includes Microsoft and CloudFlare as sponsors and confirmed speakers and panelists such as:
 
-- Alex Stamos, Chief Technology Officer, Artemis
-- Jeff Moss, Founder, DEF CON and Black Hat

-- Marcia Hofmann, Privacy Attorney

-- Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer, F-Secure
-- Chris Palmer, Software Security Engineer, Google
-- Christopher Soghoian, Principal Technologist, American Civil Liberties Union
 

Why:

Reuters has reported that the RSA Corporation entered into a $10M contract with the NSA to include a backdoored algorithm in their widely used commercial cryptography library. The disclosure of this deal has affected the trust individuals and companies place in the government and technology companies and has struck a chord among businesses and consumers. It raises concern regarding the ways the industry may profit from relationships with the government and whether international clients can trust their security providers.
 
TrustyCon serves as a call-to-action to companies to design their technology and businesses to be secure and trustworthy.
