The Design Imperative: Secure Software for a Safer Future

Mar 12, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Do you worry about hackers from other nations shutting down power, paralyzing hospitals, or impacting our water supply? Just like the automobile industry in the 1950s, where drivers were blamed for crashes caused by faulty, unsafe cars; today, we blame end-users of technology for cyberattacks and data breaches. The reality is that we are forced to use insecure technology. We envision a world where software is inherently secure, safe, and resilient. Meaning less cyberattacks and less disruption to our public safety, national security, and economic well being. In this session, industry experts will discuss how to make these changes.
