A SHORT COURSE IN CYBER WARFARE
Opening Keynote by The Grugq
The Grugq started his presentation by discussing the history of war in terms of dimensions, land, sea, air, space and finally cyber. He showed one such text (if I recall it was air), you could simply replace the world cyber with air and the text could have been written for today. Fantastic comparison!
In his talk The Grugq stated, "You may be best in your field, but your skills don't guarantee a win, you need to overwhelm your opponent". This is the reality we live in as information security professionals. You can have the best defenses, the best of everything, but it takes one new move, one new new tactic, and we are defeated. He mentioned the complexity of security how "things that should work don't and things that shouldn't work do".
The keynote looked at Cyber Security from a unique perspective comparing the progression of each dimension and the complexity of each. The modification of human behaviour changing outcomes.
