A “Cyber Defense summit” to be held in October selected a guest for its keynote speaker who seems to be slightly unfit for the job: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. 
Fireeye states on its website:
Cyber security is not any one defender’s responsibility, but a global effort – a cause championed by many for the good of all. By coming together as a community to innovate, build strategies and share knowledge on today’s threats and tomorrow’s risks, we empower ourselves as defenders with the collective wisdom to protect our way of life and the technologies that have become central to it …
In addition to informative and insightful keynotes from industry thought leaders and FireEye executives, Cyber Defense Summit will feature breakout sessions across three tracks:
  • Executive Track: What managers, executives, lawyers, and boards of directors need to know about cyber security
  • Technical Track: What security practitioners need to know to mitigate, detect, and respond to cyber attacks
  • Solutions Track: How FireEye solutions are used on the front lines of cyber security
Selecting Hillary Clinton to champion cyber defense does seem to indicate a slight forgetting of recent history, although when it comes to forgetting Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account for thousands of her government-related emails, Clinton herself had problems with memory. A lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch required Clinton to answer over two dozen questions under oath, and "Clinton used some variation of 'does not recall' at least 21 times," according to the Associated Press, which wrote:
For example, Clinton was asked when she decided to use her private email account to conduct government business and whom she consulted in making that decision. Clinton said she recalled making the decision in early 2009, but she "does not recall any specific consultations regarding the decision." Asked whether she was warned that using a private email account conflicted with federal record-keeping rules, Clinton responded that "she does not recall being advised, cautioned, or warned, she does not recall that it was ever suggested to her, and she does not recall participating in any communication, conversation, or meeting in which it was discussed."
The danger Clinton courted by her reckless use of her emails was reported by Fox News in June 2018:
“Foreign actors” obtained access to some of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails -- including at least one email classified as “secret” -- according to a new memo from two GOP-led House committees and an internal FBI email … “Documents provided to the Committees show foreign actors obtained access to some of Mrs. Clinton’s emails -- including at least one email classified 'Secret,'" the memo says, adding that foreign actors also accessed the private accounts of some Clinton staffers. The memo does not say who the foreign actors are, or what material was obtained, but it notes that secret information is defined as information that, if disclosed, could “reasonably be expected to cause serious damage to the national security.”

  1. Too bad Idi Amin is dead. He could be keynote speaker at a Vegan Nutrition Conference.
