David Spark here reporting for Tripwire at the 2010 RSA Conference in San Francisco.
Before their panel “Proving the Worth of Security Metrics with Real-World Data” the four panelists had a pre-debate as to what they were going to debate about tomorrow. They realized they have to set the stage by defining what they mean by metrics, and what they mean by security.
Having a drink at the Thirsty Bear and preparing for the panel were:
Andrew Jaquith, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc.
Gene Kim, CTO, Tripwire, Inc.
Marcus Sachs, Executive Director, National Security and Cyber Policy, Verizon Business
Moderator: James Cowie, CTO, Renesys
They closed their pre-debate with the common issues one discusses when embarking on any panel. Let the moderator be the ringleader and don’t burden the audience with bios of the panelists. They can just read that information online.
