“He who is good with a hammer thinks everything is a nail.”
- Modified quote from the original by Abraham Maslow
How does one sell security? How does one commercialize such nebulous concepts such as “Trust”, “Security” and “Cryptography”? Cryptography, which is just one building block of security, is based on other more abstract building blocks such as algorithms which have a foundation on hard mathematical problems.
In this talk, Sherry Shannon-Vanstone will speak to the tools that she has used in successfully selling information security, from setting up distribution channels in Asia Pacific, to standardizing, patenting, and commercializing Elliptic Curve Cryptography, to secure vehicle to vehicle communications and smart cities.
Shannon-Vanstone is the former Co-founder, President, CEO and Chairman of the Board, TrustPoint Innovation Technologies, Ltd.
