ISMG Editors: Call for Cooperation at Black Hat Europe 2023Highlights From the Conference on Improving Public-Private Sector Collaboration
In this special edition at Black Hat Europe 2023 in London, three Information Security Media Group editors cover the highlights of the conference, including a resounding call for better collaboration between government agencies and the private sector, some concerning regulatory trends, and the cautionary tale of ex-Uber CISO Joe Sullivan.
The panelists - Anna Delaney, director, productions; Mathew Schwartz, executive editor of DataBreachToday and Europe; and Tony Morbin, executive news editor, EU - discussed:
- A major theme this year of confronting adversaries with better international cooperation and sharing of information - including more collaboration with the private sector.
- Concerns by Jeff Moss, the founder and creator of Black Hat, about the potential flurry of regulatory changes coming in 2024 that should be on the radar of cybersecurity and privacy programs.
- Reflections from this year's keynote speaker, Joe Sullivan, the former CSO of Facebook, Uber and Cloudflare who was fired and charged with covering up a data breach, on the need for security leaders to take responsibility but make sure they have the authority to address cybersecurity issues effectively.
