Ira Winkler, CISSP is President of Secure Mentem and author of Advanced Persistent Security and the forthcoming You Can Stop Stupid. He is considered one of the world’s most influential security professionals, and has been named a “Modern Day James Bond” by the media.

He continues to perform these espionage simulations, as well as assisting organizations in developing cost effective security programs.

  • The Death of The HP Way: An insiders perspective on how the HP ethics debacle came together.

    The news that HP hired private investigators to investigate employees, board members and members of the press shocked the nation and the world, and had massive repercussions both inside and outside of HP. This was not the case of a single person run amok, but of a steady deterioration of the company’s moral fiber. Ira Winkler noticed this deterioration from the inside and resigned, warning that some management behaviors were ethically unsound and were harming the company, while other managers ignored the behaviors. Sadly, his foresight was proven very correct. This presentation discusses the events that led up to Congressional inquiry, as well as how attendees can recognize similar patterns in their own organizations. Most importantly, it provides guidance as to what can be done to prevent this situation from being repeated in their organizations.

  • Secrets of Superspies.

    Spies are unstoppable geniuses who can steal any information they want. You are at their mercy. Then there are the spy wannabes such as criminals, hackers, and even your employees, all with similar diabolical reputations. However as good as spies are in stealing your information, they are as good as protecting their information. After all, people know who the spies are and target them back. While some spy cases hit the newspapers they are rare when compared with all the people out to get them. The fact is that they know the underlying ways to compromise information, so they know best how to protect immense amounts of information. Ira Winkler uses actual cases of espionage, including those that he committed, to demonstrate the most cost effective security programs for your organization.
