Von Österreich ins Silicon Valley – Cyber-Sicherheit als globaler Faktor

Plenary / Panel
in englischer Sprache

In seiner Funktion als Vizepräsident für Sicherheit und Datenschutz bei Google leitet Gerhard Eschelbeck ein Team von mehr als 600 Ingenieuren, die für Aufbau und Wartung der Werkzeuge und Systeme verantwortlich sind, welche Google-Anwender und ihre Daten schützen.


Vice President Security and Privacy Engineering, Google Inc., Cupertino, CA Abstract
When people think about security at Google, they imagine one of two things: nerdy, engineer hackers or a big stack of servers. The reality is somewhere in between. People and technology are equally important. Technology needs people build and guide it. The Security and Privacy Engineering team is made up of over 600 Googlers in 14 global offices. Everything we do is rooted in our mission to protect, respect and defend our users, Google and the internet as a whole.
After the mobile revolution, the next wave is the cloud with its own security challenges and opportunities. The challenges get bigger, but so does our ability to fight them. As an industry, we've learned a lot since the early days of viruses when much of our work was reactive. When it comes to topics like cloud, I see myself and my peers taking a proactive, strategic approach. We anticipate problems before they happen. This proactiveness is what attracted me to Google.
As we proactively and passionately push technology forward, we have a responsibility to protect our users' security AND their privacy - both sides of the coin. Authentication and encryption are two of many examples where we need to strike this balance. There are many others, eg. using signals and trends from user data to identify, evaluate and prevent security threats. There is no point in techology that fulfills one set of user needs at the expense of another. By taking a holistic view and carefully considering all angles, we ensure human interest is truly at the center of technology.
