Thank you for joining us for (ISC)² Security Congress 2020! Our new CEO, Clar Rosso, is here to welcome you to our annual conference. Get to know Clar as she introduces herself and shares her observations since joining the organization.

Clar will be followed by our first keynote speaker Bruce Schneier, an internationally renowned security technologist and best-selling author of more than a dozen books – including his latest, Click Here to Kill Everybody, exploring the risks and implications of our new hyper-connected era. He works at the intersection of security, technology and people, and has penned hundreds of articles, essays and academic papers on these topics. With a readership of over 250,000, Schneier also publishes a free monthly newsletter, Crypto-Gram and blog, Schneier on Security, explaining, debunking and drawing lessons from security stories that make the news. Schneier is a fellow at the Berkman-Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, and a lecturer in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. He is also a board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, AccessNow and the Tor Project.

Schneier will discuss the public-interest aspects of technology. In particular, he will discuss the ethics of data privacy and security. Today’s cybersecurity professionals are more than technologists; the work they do affects society as a whole.

Finally, stay tuned for a few words from our Security Congress Host and (ISC)² COO, Wesley Simpson. Wesley will formally kick off the conference and tell you what you need to do to make the most of your time with us over the next few days and beyond.
