CLTC Research Exchange Panel: How Leaders Generate and Use Cybersecurity Foresight

October 7, 2021 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM Virtual Event

  • This event has passed.

A recap and recording of this event can be viewed here.

Cybersecurity is a dynamic competition between attackers and defenders, which means the ability to foresee future challenges is a nearly essential capability. It’s hard to generate quality foresight in such a complicated environment; it’s sometimes even harder to make foresight actionable inside organizations. In this panel, industry experts will help us understand how can we get better at both.

In this panel, industry practitioners will share personal stories of their own unanticipated challenges, and the lessons they learned that inform their future-planning. They will also discuss how a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives informs better solutions; how they prepare for known (and unknown) long-term issues and the trends they see as most critical; how the academic research community can equip industry to better address these issues; and how leaders balance foresight and long-term planning with the urgent needs of the moment.

Panelists include:

  • Dr. Alissa Jay Abdullah – Deputy Chief Security Officer, Mastercard
  • Derek Manky – Chief of Security Insights and Global Threat Alliances, Fortinet
  • Claire Vishik – Fellow and GMT CTO, Intel Corporation
  • Moderated by Steve Weber – Faculty Director, CLTC; Professor, UC Berkeley School of Information and Department of Political Science
