@purserj @jonoabroad Ah, I refer to that as the “opening monologue” in my running sheet. Fun stuff. The Sunrise presenter was near laughing.

The comment about body cameras was a curious counterpoint ‘cos earlier she said that videotaping interviews reducing corruption.

Audio recorders are fine for taking statements, and she wants an organisation of people she trusts.

Personally, I’d have though that “knowing what the heck you’re doing” would be a more important factor in building security etc.

Scholtz uses the ol’ Ronald Reagan quote “Trust, but verify” in relation to People-Centric Security (PCC)

Gartner’s Tom Scholtz is giving great soundbite. Though my mental image of him in VR goggles is a bit Dr Strangelove

So, all of that is the familiar Garter framing. Which makes sense. The whole industry needs to grok this and change. Will they?

via TweetDeck

“Resilience is our new standard of success, our guiding light,” says Perkins.

via TweetDeck

6. Move from prevention-only work to detect-and-respond. Compromise is inevitable.

via TweetDeck

And of course the example of PCC in action is involving people in anti-phishing processes.

via TweetDeck

5. Move from a technology focus to a people focus. (This is their People-Centric Security (PCC) thing.)

via TweetDeck

4. Move from controlling information to understanding information flow. Every digital business is a link in a global chain.

via TweetDeck

3. Move from being righteous defenders to being facilitators of finding a balance of risk.

via TweetDeck

1. Risk-based thinking. 2. Focus on outcomes, not technology.

via TweetDeck

We’re about to get the six principles of resilience. Here we go.

via TweetDeck

Start “accepting certain risks for the achievement of success. You need to start accepting some punches,” says Perkins.

via TweetDeck

“Resilience” is being illustrated with the San Francisco earthquake, Dutch dykes, and looming doom-laden music.

via TweetDeck

Earl Parkins does a great opening speech. So far, the Digital Risk Officer concept and “resilience” are the key messages.

via TweetDeck

By 2017, 50% of your IT spend will be outside the IT department’s control, says Gartnerl.

via TweetDeck

Three whole minutes elapsed before he said “Internet of Things”? He must be coming down with a cold or something.

via TweetDeck

Shorter Earl Perkins’ intro: There’s more digital business, there’s more digital crooks. These are “macro-trends”.

We’re currently enduring the obligatory pre-keynote too-loud too-bassy music that tech companies imagine makes them cool.
