FOCUS 16, Intel Security’s 9th annual conference, connects leading security specialists from around the globe to exchange innovative ideas, one-of-a-kind visions, and invaluable insights about cybersecurity in a digital world.  

FOCUS 16 will feature compelling guest keynotes including:

Ashton Kutcher - As one of Silicon Valley’s most successful investors, Kutcher has funded many startups that are now household names and provides invaluable perspective on how a company’s cybersecurity posture affects growth and innovation. Holding the notable distinction as the first individual to earn one million Twitter followers, and to subsequently have his Twitter account hacked, Kutcher humanises the impact of cybercrime. As a thought leader in his own right, Kutcher offers a unique point of view on balancing the scales between security and freedom among other complex issues. 

Ted Koppel - The longest serving news anchor in U.S. broadcast history! During more than 50 years that he has worked as a professional journalist, Ted Koppel has embodied the term “eye-witness” by covering some of the most memorable events in history.  Koppel’s most recent book, a New York Times best seller, Lights Out (October, 2015) examines a threat unique to our time and evaluates potential ways to prepare for a cyber-catastrophe.

Harnessing Integrated Security Analytics - Blog

Necessity is the mother of invention. To match the demands of a threat landscape that has grown exponentially in the last decade, cybersecurity innovation has moved at a break-neck pace. Like all innovation, it solves an immediate need — but it’s difficult to see the new issues it will cause. Cybersecurity point products that focus on one problem – or even one class of problems – have created major obstacles in security management and operations, in sourcing talent to wield these products and, most importantly, in comprehensive visibility of the attack surface. Lack of communication and integration between various vendors and solution sets have created disconnected environments, making it difficult to pull together the intelligence needed to gauge security status, preemptively strengthen defenses or respond quickly to an emerging threat or ongoing attack. In essence, the use of point solutions is like defending a castle one stone at a time.
