A global cyber security scenario 2020: A world of secured IoT - Is it time for a paradigm shift?

Sebastian is an international business leader with experience in both the military and private sectors and specialization in Information Technology Security and Cyber Defense. He has spent the last 20 years working for high level and highly exposed national and global organizations focusing on protecting their IT environments. He has racked up an impressive record of achievements and advancements on multiple continents and traces his IT beginnings to his unusual teenage job of computer programmer for one of the largest German multinational corporations.
Shortly thereafter, he became a military officer with the German Air Force, where he rose quickly through the ranks to become responsible for all German information security services through the Northeast and Southern corridors of the U.S. Before leaving the military, he was appointed Chief Information Security Officer for NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan at ISAF Joint Command. He then successfully transitioned into the NATO organization itself, being a member of the team that directed the design and implementation of NATO’s Computer Incident Response Capability, a system that would eventually protect the highly confidential data of the international organization. In 2015, Sebastian transitioned completely into the private sector by accepting the job of Chief Information Security Officer for Isabel Group. Most recently, he joined AIG's Cyber Insurance Team.
He holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the German Armed Forces University, a Master’s in Executive Leadership from the Georgetown McDonough School of Business, and a LL.M. degree from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. He is a Certified Chief Information Security Officer (C|CISO) and a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), among other professional certifications.

Cyber Security and the Convergence of IT and OT

Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) - Transport for London (TfL) is a dynamic and challenging retail and transportation organisation with annual revenue of £4Bn. 

During this position, his first step was to risk assess the current state of information security at TfL. From that risk assessment he then developed and led the implementation of an effective strategic and tactical response programme to ensure cyber security resilience. Richard has been with TfL since 2004, during which has had responsibility for providing security assurance against some of the most significant risks TfL faced. He is Fellow and previously served as a Director of The Security Institute, and featured within the IFSEC Global Top 40 of influencers in security 2014 and 2015.

He has contributions in many international conferences, journals, and holds several patents and patent applications.

The presentation summarizes current work in IRTG on security challenges in the Internet of Things (see link below). This work aims at creating awareness in different industries and it is done within the scope of IRTG, the research organization in IETF doing the standardization of the Internet protocols. The document (https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-irtf-t2trg-iot-seccons-00 ) goes thought the lifecycle of a device, state of the art, security profiles, and security challenges. As such, this presentation will provide the attendees with a broad view and can serve as entry point to more specialized discussions.
