Conference : Does Cyber Security Time accelerate?
Frédéric Paillart is a Software Security Architect in Gemalto, now Thales Digital Identity and Security, since 10 years. He is in charge of supporting the development teams for building secure and for security solutions mostly for Mobile Network Operator market. He has started his career as developper and next architect before to move as security expert, and he is considering himself as a technology enthusiast. In parallel to his career in Thales, Frédéric is teaching ethical hacking in French Engineering schools, sharing his experiences and knowledges both to students and professionals following master degree. Since one year Frédéric is building and managing a two years focus cybersecurity training for the ISEN Yncrea Méditerranée Engineering school.
Numeric services are being moved to the “cloud” and items are more and more connected. Would it be for autonomous vehicles or for former isolated infrastructures… The “digital transformation” is on the way. Connectivity is now ruling the market at a global level. Therefore, the balance of power between competitors has changed. We all have to adapt. Until now, cryptographers used to build mechanisms to protect confidentiality and data integrity relying on mathematics and their knowledge of existing attacks. Those attacks used to be improved depending on the latest scientific publications. And so, from time to time, experts in security had to build fix architectures and create new updates in order to detect attacks depending on known signatures. From now on, experts in cybersecurity have to gather their know-how to pragmatically improve. Together, they have to manage risk by maximizing their skills at each stage of conception. It has become essential to know how to detect a new attack and to quickly decide what decision is the most adapted to take. How can we adjust ourselves to this new relationship with time and what are the impacts on security systems conception?
