You’re Perfect, You’re Doomed. A psychological examination into cybersecurity.
TierPoint’s Chief Security Officer, Paul Mazzucco, is an expert in the field of human behavior and cybersecurity, and in this presentation, Mr. Mazzucco examines the natural human tendency to fear the unknown and how this has consequences on today’s IT leaders, namely for the data and people they attempt to protect. Mr. Mazzucco will also highlight how attackers leverage these psychological vulnerabilities for attacks in Phishing, Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Attendees will learn about the latest tactics attackers are using to exploit cybersecurity efforts, and they will also understand how to address the tension between the unknown of what an attacker is capable of doing versus what an IT leader can proactively do to avoid organizational complacency and security vulnerabilities.
In addition to Paul’s security duties at TierPoint, Paul Mazzucco is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), and Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) answering to the FBI, the United States Secret Service, Pennsylvania Electronic Crimes Task Force (PAECT) and the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (U.S. CERT).
