Theseus and the Labyrinth II - Navigating the cyber security maze

Organisations and individuals continue to be subjected to high profile attacks on their IT systems.
Successful attacks can vary from relatively simple "script kiddy" exfiltrations to highly complex "state sponsored" command and control via advanced persistent threats.
The security landscape is further complicated by a softening of traditional security perimeters, social media, the cloud and the internet of things.
Meanwhile, western countries seek to weaken the public and commercial security toolkit in an attempt to attain eavesdropper control on secure communication in the ongoing battle against organised crime and terrorism.
In this talk I attempt to navigate this complex maze of security requirements and contradictions and to provide my thoughts on managing IT security within organisations.
