Title: If I Were a Hacker Now: Perspectives from a VC, CISO, and Founder
Synopsis: Dive into the hacker’s mindset with a VC, CISO, and Founder. Uncover evolving threats, investor strategies, innovative defenses, and the future of cybersecurity in this insightful discussion.
In cybersecurity, it’s important to remember the adage to keep friends close but enemies closer. In fact, it actually creates more risk when the good guys only see cybercriminals as some abstract notion. However, if you can understand a hacker’s perspective and motivation, you have a better chance of winning the cyber war. In this panel discussion, we seek the panelists to wear the thinking hat of a hacker, not to condone or endorse illicit activities, but rather to shed light on the intricate strategies and methodologies employed by cybercriminals.
This discussion serves as a valuable source of insights into the opinions of demand drivers regarding potential future exploits. It not only provides inspiration but also acts as a catalyst for cybersecurity providers to embark on innovative endeavors and drive breakthroughs in the field.
