    by Chenxi Wang on February 28, 2016

    On March 2 at 9:10 a.m. at the RSA Conference, I’ll be running a panel discussion on “Can government encryption backdoor and privacy coexist, or is it an oxymoron?” with Michelle Dennedy, the Chief Privacy Officer of Cisco, Richard Marshall, former General Counsel for the NSA, and Dr. Matthew Green, the Economist’s go-to source for encryption technologies.

  • Breaking into Information Security: Crafting a Custom Career Path to Get the Job You Really Want

    by Ben Rothke on February 28, 2016
