  • We Have Entered the New Cyber Reality, But Are We Ready?

    by Chenxi Wang on October 12, 2016

    During the U.S. presidential debate on September 26, the moderator asked the two candidates to address the following topic: Our institutions are under cyber attack, and our secrets are being stolen. So my question is, who’s behind it? And how do we fight it? The very fact that this topic has moved beyond IT whiteboards and corporate boardrooms and into the national Situation Room indicates that we…

  • Can a Government Encryption Backdoor and Privacy Coexist?

    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. My idea is to bring in a privacy expert, …

    It’s that time again, when retail businesses across the country expect to see the year's highest volume of consumer transactions. Stores are decked out, discounts are advertised, and shoppers—both physical and cyber—are rolling in. A friend of mine, a manager of several retail branch stores for a national brand, told me that in brick-and-mortar retail stores, they keep in mind the concept of…

  • Type Safety, Containers, and What Immutability Does For Operational Security

    by Chenxi Wang on October 30, 2015

    In programming language, there is a concept called Type Safety. Type safety means a set of rules that the language enforces to prevent type errors that a programmer may make, which may lead to unintended or unsafe access to memory. C and C++ are not type-safe languages as the programmer has an incredibly amount of latitude to mix up values and data types. Because of weak type rules, memory attacks…

  • Making The Case For “Small Data”

    by Chenxi Wang on September 17, 2015

    Big Data is a buzzword. Many organizations hitching themselves to the Big Data-wagon amass data quickly in search of unicorn-esque insight, but don’t put much thought into the process. To make matters worse, data, in its various contemporary forms, is readily available. The temptation is high– to collect simply because you can and because it may become useful at some point. We should practice the…
