An Over Coffee® Veterans’ Day rebroadcast
For Veterans’ Day weekend, Over Coffee® would like to thank our veterans and military service members, who give us the freedom to innovate.
And one of the first people who comes to mind? U.S. Army Captain Brent Chapman.
Brent has made mindful innovation the focus of his career. He is an avid maker, an information security professional and a Cyber Operations Veteran. His military career has included serving as a research scientist at the Army Cyber Institute and, more recently, as Project Manager at the Army’s Defense Unit Experimental. (And congratulations to him–he just started a new position in information security at Apple, according to his LinkedIn profile!)
We met Brent at the 2016 Sensors Expo, in San Jose, where he gave a presentation on the security considerations to keep in mind, while creating disruptive technology.
As we honor our veterans, here is our rebroadcast of our March 2017 Over Coffee® interview with Brent, about security considerations for makers and innovators.
On this edition of Over Coffee®, you’ll hear:
How Brent first became a maker during his growing-up years;
The pitfalls he sees in the “maker mindset” that could compromise security;
The challenges of creating safeguards fof the Internet or other innovations in a connected world;
What considerations makers might want to keep in mind, when connecting to the Internet of Things;
The security safeguards Brent uses in his own home;
One of his most fun recent maker projects, for his young son;
Some of Brent’s favorite maker resources;
Some cautionary considerations about wearables and security of data.
