The Magic Kingdom - Embracing a Changing World
October 25-26, 2012
Anaheim, CA – USA
New opportunities abound in the midst of amazing transformations in technology, business, and culture. Inspired by Disney’s innovative vision, the cybersecurity community will gather at the Magic Kingdom on October 25-26 to look at change as a chance to achieve excellence. Disruptions like "big data”, "cloud computing”, massive collaboration, and business transformation make it possible for us to blaze new trails and build effective foundations. We are enabling our work forces to be mobile and productive while protecting sensitive data. We build systems and policies that impede our foes and guard our constituents. This is an exciting time to be in the information security field and we are all vital in making our businesses faster, better, smarter and, most importantly, safer.

Human Creativity: Workarounds as Enablers and Inhibiters of Security
IT systems oblige humans to be creative in ways system designers neither anticipated nor wanted – with occasional disastrous consequences. Workarounds allow people and systems to function. They allow competent and incompetent, well-intended and malefactors, to overcome bad programming, insufficient training, poor design, and inadequate integration of information technology and workflow. Sometimes workarounds display valuable efficiencies; sometimes they permit the lazy or inattentive to accomplish tasks in unfortunate ways. Always, workarounds expose opportunities for system knowledge and improvements. Most workarounds are unnoticed and unheeded; many are taught as part of routine procedures.
In this keynote session, Professor Koppel will share his extensive research on workarounds via observations, statistical analyses, intensive interviews, shadowing, and participation in key committees. With examples drawn primarily from healthcare organizations, but also from financial, data storage and security sectors. Building security systems without fully considering workarounds, is like assuming no one every leaves the key under the mat.
