CLTC Spring 2016 Event Series

The Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity is pleased to announce our Spring 2016 event series.

February 4, 1-2pm

Peter Eckersleypde-440

“The Road to a Fully Encrypted Internet”
Banatao Hall, UC Berkeley Campus

In partnership with the Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST), CLTC is pleased to present a discussion with Peter Eckersley, Chief Computer Scientist for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Peter leads a team of technologists who watch for technologies that, by accident or design, pose a risk to computer users’ freedoms—and then look for ways to fix them. They write code to make the Internet more secure, more open, and safer against surveillance and censorship. He has worked on projects such as Let’s Encrypt CA, Panopticlick, HTTPS Everywhere, and the SSL Observatory; helped start a movement for open wireless networks; helped launch the campaign against the SOPA/PIPA Internet blacklist legislation; and more. Eckersley‘s talk, “The Road to a Fully Encrypted Internet,” will explore some of the institutional and technical roadblocks that have made the deployment of encryption complicated, and will explore what technologists and policymakers can do to help.

February 9, 12-1:30pmVint_Cerf_-_2010

Vint Cerf

“Safety, Security, and Privacy in the Internet”
Boalt Hall, Room 110, UC Berkeley

It is clear that the Internet is becoming a highly penetrant part of our infrastructure. It is also, unfortunately, a highly penetrable part of the infrastructure and if we are to rely on it, we will need to reinforce our technology and our practices to achieve the robustness needed. In this talk, “Safety, Security and Privacy in the Internet,” Vinton C. Serf, Chief Internet Evangelist for Google and one of the founders of the Internet, will outline many of the issues and challenges, to stimulate discussion and to surface ideas that may lead to the desired outcome: a safe, secure network that protects privacy and the interests of its users. Vint is the co-designer with Robert Kahn of TCP/IP protocols and basic architecture of the Internet. Since 2000, Vint has served as chairman of the board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and he has been a Visiting Scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory since 1998.

David and Orion Hindawi

“Cybersecurity and the Future of Industry: A Case Study of Tanium”
South Hall, Room 205, UC Berkeley

Called the “world’s hottest cybersecurity startup” by Fortune in 2015, Tanium helps IT departments to manage and control even large, decentralized networks with “15-second visibility” into network activity. CLTC will present a seminar with David Hindawi, Executive Chairman of the Board, and Orion Hindawi, Chief Executive Officer, who together co-founded this Emeryville, California-based security and systems management company. (They previously founded BigFix, Inc., an enterprise systems management solution that was acquired by IBM in 2010.) Tanium focuses on solving the significant challenges IT departments face in securing and managing large, global enterprise environments; the company says its platform is used by more than half of Fortune 100 companies.
