Innovation and Tech Transfer Experts to Speak at RSA IEEE S&P Panel

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 17 February, 2012 – How can you fast-track your emerging technology into the marketplace? A distinguished panel of innovators and entrepreneurs from government and private industry will discuss how they make technology transfer work at IEEE Security & Privacy magazine's panel at RSA Conference 2012. Also, be sure to visit IEEE Computer Society staff and editors in Booth #2633 throughout the conference.
"Innovation and Technology Transfer in Security: From the Lab to General Use" (SECT-201) will take place from 8-9:10 a.m. on Wednesday, February 29 in Room 310 of the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. The panel will be moderated by Cigital Inc. CTO Gary McGraw, producer of the Silver Bullet Security Podcast series and author of Exploiting Online Games, Software Security: Building Security In, and seven other books.
The panelists are:
• Brian Chess, founder and chief scientist of Fortify Software, an HP company
• Paul Kocher, president of Cryptography Research Inc.
• Carl Landwehr, director of the Trustworthy Computing Program at the US National Science Foundation, and
• Peter Denning, Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at the US Naval Postgraduate School.
"Tech transfer is an important part of the high-technology engine for economic growth on the planet," said McGraw. "As computer security evolves beyond operations to building security in, we look to entrepreneurs to carry ideas from the lab to the marketplace."
Panel attendees will learn where good ideas in security technology come from and how they make their way from an inventor's head into the global security marketplace. Since computer security relies heavily on technology, innovation and new ideas that provide solutions are critical.
Based on years of hands-on experience in innovation and technology transfer, this panel of experts will share:
• How government research grants work
• When internal technology development makes sense
• Where security ideas come from, and
• Essential practices for successful innovation.
