KEYNOTE 1 – Security vs. Privacy: Our Daily Struggle to Balance National Security Interests and Civil Liberties at the Ground Level


The debate between security and privacy advocates usually comes down to three core arguments: The Security advocate argues that the risk of material or significant impact to critical infrastructure and services is high (and growing), and that these concerns trump the need to protect the privacy of the individual. The Privacy advocate defends their position with a defense of civil liberties as absolute and unalienable, concluding that security without privacy is meaningless.

In between these two extremes one finds the practitioners, trying to balance between the often reactionary compliance dictates which follow incidents associated with both. Kris Lovejoy, former CISO , now start-up entrepreneur, will explore the truth and fiction behind the debate, as well as to discuss practical, achievable steps practitioners can take to address requirements associated with both.
