Alain Baraton, Chief gardener of the Domaine national de Trianon et du Grand Parc de Versailles

You think information systems are a jungle and hackers formidable predators? Nature is sometimes even more violent, but organizes itself with creativity to counter external threats, especially of human origin. Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of gardens, Alain Baraton will compare nature to the field of digital confrontations: how forces balance themselves, what strategies to adopt, what lessons to draw from the observation of flora in the face of unforeseen perils, what are the beneficial mutations, how knowledge is transmitted to succeed in a changing environment in the long run... His experience of more than thirty years at the heart of a French historical institution gives him keys to understanding that will certainly inspire digital security professionals.
