Planning to Fail: Continuing to Get It Wrong

Interhack's Matt Curtin presents, “Planning to Fail: Continuing to Get It Wrong” as part of Security Week at The Ohio State University.

COLUMBUS, OHIO (April 16, 2004) -- Interhack's Matt Curtin will deliver a keynote talk as part of Security Week at The Ohio State University. On April 26, Curtin will deliver the talk, “Planning To Fail: Continuing To Get It Wrong” at the Faculty Club Grand Lounge on the campus of The Ohio State University.


It has been said that a failure to plan is a plan to fail. While computer security research has been active for more than thirty years, the practice lags decades behind the theoretical state of the art. We will consider trends in the cost and frequency of failure in security, the forces shaping these trends, and strategies for managing security rationally.
