    Plenary Session 6: You too should think like a hacker

    Ymir has grown up as hacker and currently helps some of the world's largest organizations grapple with cybersecurity through his two startup companies (Syndis and Adversary.io). He will address this question by focusing on how companies can improve their defenses by helping people understand the offense – “to think like a hacker"; Including showing you how to hack (!) He will also provide relevant context for internal auditors in the GDPR era since most of the data currently managed by companies is digital.

    Plenary Session 7: What Living in Space Taught Me About Life on Earth

    The success of every mission at NASA starts with procedures and verification - from vehicle processing, to the launch sequence, to the cockpit checklist. Everything is checked and double-checked. This methodology is applicable to every project where failure is not an option, and is a recipe for success in any business endeavor.
