Open Source is on the Agenda for Cyber Security Experts in Palo Alto

Icomputer-internet-security-artwork‘m in Palo Alto CA for a few days to speak at a gathering of Cyber experts from vaious disciplines at the ITTC forum at SRI headquarters in Silicon Valley.  I’m pleased for the opportunity to talk about the US and other federal agencies growing adoption of open source software AND rolling some of their own too.  Will be joining (and moderating) a panel Matt Jonkman from the Open Information Security Foundation and Doug Maughan who runs the Cyber Security Division of DHS’s Science and Technology Directorate (essentially the R&D arm of that agency).

On the same topic: Later this fall, I’ll working with GTRI and DHS rolling out open-technology focused summits; details to follow, prelimary info for summits in D.C. and the SFO Bay Area are available now.
