The MIT Enterprise Forum Washington DC Baltimore’s SPRING EVENT: CYBER-SECURITY

Despite all the money and effort(s) spent, the situation in regards to cyber attacks is getting worse- not better. I am happy to announce, Frank Sauer, former Deputy Assistant Director of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for Software and Technology, is a confirmed speaker. Frank will bring to the discussion that the  current paradigm is outdated and the general approach is based on decades-old thinking. The current focus is solving the wrong problem with regards to cyber. We also take a look at the Information Age and how society is rapidly changing while institutions, set up for the industrial age, are reeling and collapsing, unable to handle technologies new paradigms.

ABOUT FRANK SAUER:

Frank Sauer’s background uniquely puts him in a position to take on these challenges. He has been an executive at three premier organizations arguably during their most influential periods: Xerox in the 1970’s, Apple in the 1980’s, and the FBI both before and after 9/11. He also holds both a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown and a masters from MIT.
While at the FBI, Sauer was the Deputy Assistant Director for Software and was also the first Program Executive for the FBI’s $600 million bureau-wide infrastructure upgrade of hardware, networking, and software as well as the Acting Unit Chief for the FBI’s nationwide DNA database effort, CODIS. Sauer is currently the founder and CEO of Outdo Inc, a Washington D.C.-based virtual think tank that is working on changing the entire paradigm of how we look at cyber security and computing.

We are currently shaping the event’s agenda, place (venue) and time (date). This event is planned on being an active discussion about the current landscape and the challenges institutions face in protecting themselves from Cyber attacks.

Stay tuned. I’ll post more here and on LinkedIn as soon as I can. This is an event you won’t want to miss.
