Presented by Jonathan Kimmitt • CISO, University of Tulsa
Why are there so many different kinds of martial arts in the world? The simple answer is because there are many different kinds of attackers. The techniques you deploy against an attacker in hand to hand combat is very different from if your attacker was on horseback. Cyber Security is very similar, where defense tactics may be different based on the attacker, risk, or the vulnerability.
In this interactive discussion, we will look at our organizations from a very old point of view, and ask some basic ‘self-defense’ questions.
