Surviving the Siege: Medieval Lessons in Modern Security

Warfare has advanced considerably since the Middle Ages, but in many ways the principles of fortification remain the same. The great castles of antiquity were ingeniously designed to protect their inhabitants from persistent enemy threats. Their carefully planned and creative defensive measures provide rich metaphors for today’s cyber guardians. What lessons can be applied to securing our sophisticated digital fortresses? SecureWorld attendees will enjoy exploring and learning from the historical anecdotes and tactics in this year’s conference theme, “Surviving the Siege: Medieval Lessons in Modern Security.”

Edgar Allan Poe

Sure, you know Poe as the maniacal author of poems like The Raven and short stories like The Tell-Tale Heart. But you might not know about his fascination with encrypted messaging, science and the universe, or construction his works like math problems.

Edgar Allan Poe practiced cryptography and steganography. He wrote an entire short story that essentially outlined the Big Bang Theory. Poe overcame staggering challenges to hone his craft. Yet he died mysteriously—and broke.

Join us at a SecureWorld event near you to learn more about Edgar Allan Poe and his remarkable life. Find out how his contributions are still making a difference in the cybersecurity industry, 167-years after his death. We look forward to sharing his story with you.

Beauty, Brains, and Patent #2292387

Hedy Lamarr, 1940s Hollywood starlet, helped set the groundwork for some of the most revolutionary technology of our time. Hedy listened quietly while her first husband, a well-known Austrian arms dealer, entertained high-ranking Nazi officials as they discussed submarines, wire-guided torpedoes, and the frequencies used to guide them remotely. This would lay the groundwork for her later invention. The science presented in patent #2292387 serves as the basis for the technology we use today in cell phones, Bluetooth, wireless Internet, defense satellites, and other spread-spectrum devices.

2013
The Many Enigmas of Alan Turing

Alan Turing, one of the UK’s finest minds, is often referred to as the pioneer of modern computing.Turing’s life was full of incident, with his work at Bletchley Park during the Second World War essential to the Allies war effort and helping turn the tide against the Nazi regime that threatened to engulf Europe. While this work is well-documented, and growing in both awareness and appreciation all the time, there are many other facts about Turing you may not be aware of, but paint a picture of what an interesting, intelligent and lasting legacy he’s had on the world at large.

Decrypting the Mayan Code

Only in the last 40 years have scientists discovered the key to understanding the lost Mayan culture of the Yucatan—destroyed 400 years earlier as a consequence of the Spanish conquest of Mexico. Take an expedition with SecureWorld as we give you insight into the ancient Mayan society, with its complex alphabet, advanced numerical and calendar system, and the story behind how this lost culture was found again by a determined group of “decrypters.”

2011
Ciphers of the Civil War

With the attack on Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, and the outbreak of the Civil War, the need for secure telegraphic communications became paramount. Cyptographers were presented with new challenges in the first war in which the telegraph played an important role. The telegraph greatly increased the number of messages that could be sent and the speed at which they could travel, but the wires were not secure. At any point between the sender and receiver an enemy agent could tap into the line and receive the message without detection. There was little that Civil War armies could do to stop the wire-tappers, so they sought to minimize the danger by encoding their transmissions.
