[Panel] -- Modeling Enterprise Security: North Korea? or Norway?

If we truly reflect on the type of models that we tend to emulate when designing enterprise security controls, the best comparison is that of North Korea: tightly controlled regimes with constant monitoring; restricted information flows to prevent exfiltration of secrets; forced use of specific operating systems and images; and severe penalties for non-compliance, up to and including termination. Even buzzwords like “Zero Trust” seems to reflect the state of how people treat each other in North Korea.

Is this the model of enterprise security that we really want? Can we strive for something better… like Norway, where people are free to interact and innovate to meet each other’s needs and drive economic growth? In this session, we plan to compare and contrast enterprise security models to understand what choices we have when we design our enterprise security controls, and how each choice that we take can make our environment look more like Norway or more like North Korea.
