Title: Introduction to the Agile Mindset and Scrum Methodology
Description: Agile is a mindset and Scrum is perhaps the most popular methodology or framework employed. The goal of this interactive session is to introduce Agile as a philosophy, Scrum as a methodology/framework, the roles of those
on the Scrum Team, and the ceremonies that are part of the process. Along the way we’ll talk about how Agile differs from conventional methodologies and the benefits it brings.
Presenter: Nigel Wright, Technical Program Manager, Uber
Title: Methods to Decompose and Address System Cyber Security Threat Risks
Description: We will discuss ways to review an overall system, such as Hospital IT Infrastructure, Rail Signaling System, or Autonomous Vehicle, and evaluate the risks both present inherent operation and vulnerable to malicious attack.
I will present some common industry cybersecurity attacks such as Stuxnet, the Tesla lane monitoring system hack, and others. We will then have an exercise reviewing a hypothetical physical / digital system (such as an Airport Security Theoretical
System Design), I will give an overview of Kanban processes for program management. Finally, we will separate into three to four groups and use this mechanism (using “t-shirt sizing” planning with post-it notes) to evaluate how to prioritize development
to mitigate cybersecurity risks.
