The Cavalry Isn't Coming; It Falls To Us: How you can help! presented at SourceBoston 2014

by Joshua Corman, Beau Woods, Jen Ellis,

Summary : What should be clear after Andrea's keynote is: The time is now for us to step up and take a leadership role in our shared futures. It won't be easy, but we are up for the challenge.
Our dependence on technology is growing faster than our ability to secure it. We looked high and low for the "adults in the room", but what's become clear is: The Cavalry Isn't Coming. It Falls to us. It falls to you… At DEFCON, we sent the clarion call and many of you have answered. Our mission: To ensure technologies with the potential to impact public safety and human life are worthy of our trust. This session will provide updates on our safety initiatives in four areas: (Automotive, Medical Devices, Home #IoT, and Public Infrastructure) - as well as our Mainstream Media & Public Policy initiatives. More importantly, we will show you where we're going and how you can help!
Our growing ranks have found renewed purpose and tangible victories in our early experimentation. So can you… It's time.
Immediately following the cavalry session, Mark Stanislav and Zach Lanier will outline BuildItSecure.ly and their efforts, lessons learned, and ways you can help with our "Home / Internet of Things" quadrant.
