    Keynote Speaker: Chris Roberts, Chief Security Strategist 

    Chris currently works at Attivo Networks; prior to that, he has founded and worked with a number of companies specializing in security research, intelligence gathering, cryptography, and deception technologies, and other providers of security services and threat intelligence. Since the late ’90s, Chris has been deeply involved with security R&D, consulting, and advisory services in his quest to protect and defend businesses and individuals against cyber attack. Prior to that, he jumped out of planes for a living, visiting all sorts of interesting countries and cultures while doing his best to avoid getting shot at too often. Even before that, he managed to get various computers confiscated by a number of European entities. Roberts is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on counterthreat intelligence and vulnerability research within the information security industry.

    Roberts is credentialed in many of the top IT and information security disciplines and as a cybersecurity advocate and passionate industry voice and is regularly featured in national newspapers, television news, industry publications, and in several documentaries. He can typically be found waving arms on a stage somewhere on this planet…or hacking into whatever’s taken his fancy. As one of the most well-known hackers and researchers, Chris is routinely invited to speak at industry conferences. CNN, the Washington PostWIREDBusiness InsiderUSA TodayForbesNewsweek, BBC News, Wall Street Journal, and numerous others have covered him in the media. And worst case, to jog the memory, Chris was the researcher who gained global attention in 2015 for demonstrating the linkage between various aviation systems, both on the ground and while in the air, that allowed the exploitation of attacks against flight control system.
