McLean, VA, December 07, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Aiming to spark a new revolution in information security, Suits and Spooks 2 anti-conference: Shaping a Revolution in Security Affairs, the creation of Jeffrey Carr, author of Inside Cyber Warfare and CEO of Taia Global, Inc., an executive cyber protective services company is pleased to announce that Jonathan Hutson, Director of Communications of the Enough/Satellite Sentinel Project will be one of the key speakers at the upcoming conference at the Waterview Conference Center on February 8, 2012. Mr. Hutson has assumed a leading role on the Satellite Sentinel Project (SSP) and has been instrumental in the successful negotiation and launch of the project that is supported by a number of organizations and spearheaded by actor George Clooney and Enough Project Director John Prendergast.
The Satellite Sentinel Project brings together leading breakthroughs in technology, human rights, and research, to continuously develop the world’s first open-source human rights and security early warning system. This network of spy satellites and analysts currently monitors troop movements to prevent conflict between Sudan and South Sudan, and has been coined the “antigenocide paparazzi” by SSP organizer George Clooney.
Hutson and others’ most recent work at the SSP paved the way for the International Criminal Court to begin an investigation into Sudanese Defense Minister Abdelrahim Mohamed Hussein, who is currently being investigated for war crimes as a result of SSP source information. In addition to this work, Hutson has also been involved in advocating the advancement of technology and human rights across the country and abroad. Earlier this year, Hutson spoke at a workshop session of the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) entitled Analysis in the Information Age and also delivered a presentation on the Satellite Sentinel Project to a conference in Montreal.
Prior to his work on the Enough Project as the director of media relations and strategic communications, Hutson served as Chief Communications Officer at Physicians for Human Rights and multiple times held the position of Communications Director at several national NGOs.
Hutson will leverage this experience and insights alongside a panel of other multidisciplinary speakers composed of bankers, soldiers, spies, and actress/platform developer Janina Gavankar of HBO’s True Blood at Suits and Spooks 2. This diverse set of innovators and disruptive thinkers will be brought together in Washington, D.C. at the Waterview Conference Center, to tackle the problem of an information security system in free-fall. Suits and Spooks, an anti-conference is unlike traditional conferences as each attendee will have the opportunity to contribute and interact with fellow attendees and speakers during a day of problem-solving aimed at an outcome of producing new thinking on how we can re-shape information security.
