The headlines have ranged from disconcerting to downright alarming — “cybersecurity” almost seems a misnomer. From reports of government snooping on targeted individuals to massive DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks, the digital adage seems to be borne out on a daily basis: Anything that can be hacked, will be hacked.
“To me, security and privacy are two sides of the same coin. If you erode one of them, you compromise the other one,” says Dave Evans, co-founder of Stringify and formerly tasked with looking into the future for Cisco. Evans will be a keynote speaker at CEDIA 2017 in September in San Diego.
