Tripwire has announced that Dwayne Melancon, its chief technology officer, will present at SOURCE Boston 2014 on the topic of “Diablo Security: What Can Infosec Learn from Video Games?” The conference takes place April 8-10, 2014, at the Courtyard by Marriott Boston Downtown in Boston, Massachusetts.

What: Diablo Security: What Can Infosec Learn from Video Games?
Who: Dwayne Melancon, chief technology officer, Tripwire Inc.
Where: Courtyard by Marriott Boston Downtown in Boston, Massachusetts

Adventure games make it easy for players to understand how their skills, weapons and countermeasures match up against expected threats. Security professionals can better prepare for adversaries and learn from lost battles by using models found in video games.

Melancon’s presentation will demonstrate how to make being a security professional both fun and heroic by using the lens of video games to discuss:

  • How to share security knowledge and techniques with IT and security team members
  • How to learn from past mistakes in order to adapt and adjust to future threats
  • Why it is important to keep tabs on objectives and progress to efficiently execute and achieve the mission
  • How to understand the capabilities of a security team and compensate for its strengths and weaknesses

Melançon owns a critical role in driving and evangelizing Tripwire’s overall product strategy and is responsible for leading the company’s long term product strategy to meet the evolving data security needs of global enterprises.

He has spearheaded numerous initiatives during his tenure, including executive responsibility for business development, professional services and support, information systems and marketing. Melançon has over 25 years of security software experience holds ITIL and CISA certifications, and is a frequent speaker at national and regional industry events.
