    Keynote Speaker: Chris Roberts, Chief Security Strategist 

    Chris is currently serving as a vCISO or advisor for a number of entities and organizations around the globe. His most recent projects are focused within the deception, identity, cryptography, artificial intelligence, and services space. Over the years, he’s founded or worked with a number of folks specializing in OSINT/SIGING/HUMINT research, intelligence gathering, cryptography, and deception technologies. These days he’s working on spreading the risk, maturity, collaboration, and communication word across the industry (likely while coding his EEG-driven digital clone that’s monitoring his tea and biscuit consumption!). Since the late ’90s Chris has been deeply involved with security R&D, consulting, and advisory services in his quest to protect and defend businesses and individuals against various types of attack. Prior to that he jumped out of planes for a living, visiting all sorts of interesting countries and cultures while doing his best to avoid getting shot at too often. (Before that, he managed to get various computers confiscated by a number of European entities.)


    He’s considered one of the world’s foremost experts on counter-threat intelligence and vulnerability research within the information security industry. He’s also getting a name for himself in the transportation arena—basically anything with wings, wheels, tracks, tyres, fins, props, or paddles has been the target for research for the last 10–15 years—to interesting effect. Chris has led or been involved in information security assessments and engagements for the better part of 25 years and has a wealth of experience with regulations such as GLBA, GDPR, HIPAA, HITECH, FISMA, and NERC/FERC. He has also worked with government, state, and federal authorities on standards such as CMS, ISO, and NIST. Chris has been credentialed in many of the top IT and information security disciplines, and as a cybersecurity advocate and passionate industry voice, he is regularly featured in national newspapers, television news, industry publications, and several documentaries. He can typically be found waving arms on a stage somewhere on this planet…or hacking into whatever’s taken his fancy (cows being one of the more bizarre things, we’ll ignore things in space for now).

    As one of the well-known hackers and researchers, Chris is routinely invited to speak at industry conferences. CNN, the Washington Post, WIRED, Business Insider, USA Today, Forbes, Newsweek, BBC News, Wall Street Journal, and numerous others have covered him in the media. And worst case, to jog the memory, Chris was the researcher who gained global attention in 2015 for demonstrating the linkage between various aviation systems, both on the ground and while in the air, that allowed the exploitation of attacks against flight control system.
