This small talk will be run as a fully interactive workshop, no monologues. In the first 30 minutes or so we'll go over who I am the Cavalry is and what we've been trying to achieve over the last two years, how we've been trying to do so, and how we've succeeded, or not, in separate areas.

The rest of the session will be used as a brain-storming/discussion sesssion with the focus: How does I am the Cavalry fit into a European landscape and how can we use it for maximum benefit — with the benefit being proactively making producers, designers, architects and vendors of connected equipment consider and design in security? In short, how do we best promote security by design in a multi-cultural Europe?

Avenues to consider will be:

  • How do we get people involved?
  • How do reach the people we need to reach?
  • What should our messages be once we reach them?
  • and more like this.
