Securing the Game with Molly Bloom and Duo

Thursday, October 14 | 4:30pm CDT Thursday, October 14 | 2:30pm PDT

As infosec professionals, we are intimately familiar with calculating risks against rewards. Molly Bloom understands that.

Molly is best known for her memoir, Molly’s Game, which was adapted into an award-winning film of the same name by Aaron Sorkin. Bloom’s memoir chronicles her journey from college student to LA waitress to building and operating the largest and most notorious private poker game in the world.

Securing her game required unique and nuanced approaches - and as infosec practitioners, we have had to get creative as well to provide a secure environment for our users and their data.

In this fireside chat, Duo’s Global Advisory CISO, Dave Lewis and Molly will dig into their shared security challenges, as well as the similarities between infosec practices and poker game strategem. In our roles, we’ve developed the skills of observing human behavior, collecting data, and matchmaking. Some of these skills were key to her success with the games.

Join Duo, Molly, and Dave on October 14 as they delve into playing the long game, staying five steps ahead, and managing emotions to outplay opponents both in poker and the real world.

View the trailer for the Oscar-nominated film made about her story, Molly's Game.
