Independent Security Evaluators’ Ted Harrington to Speak at DevCon5

Security expert to provide unique element to HTML5 event


Norwalk, CT—December 4, 2013—TMC and Crossfire Media announced today that Ted Harrington of Independent Security Evaluators will be speaking at DevCon5 HTML5 & Mobile App Developer Conference. The event will be held December 10-11, 2013, at the Hilton Los Angeles/ Universal City, California, and will provide the necessary tools and information to effectively utilize the capabilities of HTML5 technology and remain informed on industry issues, opportunities and trends.


Ted Harrington, Executive Partner at Independent Security Evaluators drives thought leadership initiatives for ISE, the Baltimore-based cyber-threat mitigation and solutions entity widely recognized for its groundbreaking research and enterprise consulting practice. Harrington holds a bachelors degree in Psychology from Georgetown University, which he applies to drive ISE’s proprietary threat modeling.  Where many security experts are satisfied with understanding the attack, Harrington advocates progressive modeling by understanding the attacker.  A strong grasp of the adversarial methodology determines the most effective security mitigations.


On Wednesday, December 11 at 9:30am, Harrington will deliver his session, titled “The Evolving Threat Landscape: Emerging Security Trends.” The presentation will analyze trends in defending against modern attackers, provide industry context, and outline best practices.


”To defend against an attacker, you must think like him,” says Harrington about ISE’s proprietary threat modeling, which the firm utilizes to help enterprises harden systems against hackers and other malicious adversaries.


“The issue of security continues to be something that is glossed over, rather than parsed into the elements where vulnerability can be exploited,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content, DevCon5. “We look forward to Ted Harrington's insight into how to properly develop for  the changing dynamics of the web.”


DevCon5 is supported by Platinum Sponsors DreamFactory and Radware; additional Gold Sponsor Independent Security Evaluators and TiVo; and Silver Sponsor Mozilla.
