(December 13, 2015) – Mr. Bruce Schneier, fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, and the Chief Technology Officer at Resilient Systems,  was honored as the Business leader in the Cybersecurity  “for dedicating his career to the betterment of technology, security, privacy and Internet” in the Boston Global Forum’s Global Cybersecurity Day event which was held on December 12 at Harvard Faculty Club in Cambridge.

Bruce Schneier is an internationally renowned security technologist, called a “security guru” by The Economist. He is the author of 13 books as well as hundreds of articles, essays, and academic papers.Within the cybersecurity community at large, he has clearly demonstrated his outstanding knowledge, skills, and ability in cyber security both in practice and educating others.

Mr. Schneier attended and sent his acceptance speech remotely via online conference. He also shared another perspective on cyber security issue, which suggests policy makers, corporations, as well as IT experts, as the Defender of society, need to look ahead to the future to anticipate what will happen in cyberspace and technology, and to hasten the Innovation Speed.  In his view, in order to create a secure Internet, we need to innovate and move faster than the attacker. The reality of today is that there is a wide security gap between the Attacker and the Defender. The Defender always takes one step slower than the Attacker.
