Focusing on the theme of Surviving the Siege: Medieval Lessons in Modern Security, Finomial CTO Bill Wilder speaks at SecureWorld Boston.
SecureWorld Boston focuses on the principles of fortification that are similar to Medieval fortresses. The great castles of antiquity were ingeniously designed to protect their inhabitants from persistent enemy threats. Their carefully planned and creative defensive measures provide rich metaphors for today’s cyber guardians. The lessons for securing and applying sophisticated digital fortresses are covered.
