Join us at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre – Lecture Hall 110 starting at 10:00 a.m. for a special keynote session on The Future is Not What it Used to Be. This one-of-a-kind session is a must-attend for every security professional interested in learning more about cybersecurity and its role in government, military and private and public sector safety. The session will take place in advance of the opening of the Security Canada Ottawa Trade Show at the same site. The Keynote Session is included with registration to Security Canada Ottawa.

Beauceron Security Founder and CEO David Shipley will explore how the current global state of cyber(in)security will impact governments, militaries, private sector businesses and individuals over the next few years. During his talk, Shipley will explore why understanding what the word “cyber” means is critical for understanding how we will have to evolve our approaches to combating digital threats.

Shipley will also address:

  • The rising threat against smart devices – from smart cars to hospitals and the power grid
  • Hacking democracy: How Russia’s playbook for subverting democracy is ushering in a new form of asymmetric cyber warfare
  • Why cyberweapon proliferation is bad news for everyone and the critical need for a 21st century Geneva Convention
  • Why Blockchain isn’t a cybersecurity silver bullet
