Unlocking the door: Lessons in risk from the physical to the cybersecurity world

We intuitively get how some aspects of physical security can affect cybersecurity: "Hmm, maybe that dude wandering around with bolt cutters might be trying to get into my data centre."

But perhaps our understanding of the physical hasn't fully kept pace during our transition from hunter-gatherer to knowledge worker. Evidence? We freak out over sharks. Yet we casually use appliances — including wired computers — during electrical storms.

Mixing physical observations with practical demonstrations (lock picking) John hopes to change the way you think about risk.

Disclaimer: Any lock picking demonstrated during this presentation will: (1) be performed on locks owned by the presenter and (2) be for educational purposes only. Members of the audience may be invited to pick the same locks but will do so with the express consent of the owner and will, again, do so for educational purposes only.

About the speaker:

John Bullock is the Senior IT Audit Specialist at the Office of the Auditor General of British Columbia. Reporting to the Assistant Auditor General, he conducts information technology audits where he provides assessments of governance, risk management and internal controls with a special focus on technology. Before that, John spent 9 years as the Information Security Manager at Dalhousie University where he managed risks to the University's information and related information technology resources, developed policies and procedures for data handling, managed security incidents, and created security awareness programs. Raised on Canada's Pacific coast. Seasoned on the Atlantic. John's sense of adventure (and brooding over a decade of diminished cycling opportunities) saw him move back to Victoria in 2014. He swapped coasts but his passion for examining the intersection of privacy & technology (and for breaking things) has not changed.
