Sure, I'll be Your Unicorn

January 21, 2013 Added by:Wendy Nather

I was fascinated to read about the last year cancellation of the British Ruby conference due to the arguments that the speaker lineup lacked diversity. Other people have their own opinions on why we have this problem and what we should do about it...

Wargames on a New Level - Hackfest.CA in Quebec City

December 02, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

When I was asked to come out to Quebec for a conference called Hackfest.CA, I was interested because this isn't a conference I had heard of, and it wasn't on my radar. Additionally, the name suggests it's geared towards the 'hackers' and quite frankly, I'm fairly out of practice...

Pre-Rejected CFP Submissions

September 27, 2012 Added by:Wendy Nather

A disturbing trend in security conferences is meta-talks that have nothing to do with pwning stuff. Burnout, sexism, career advice, economics, recruiting, food, exercise and other presentations on what's wrong with the security industry, are replacing actual knowledge transfer...

Rediscovering Our Way: OWASP AppSec Ireland 2012

September 20, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

We can't expect the OWASP community to continue forward as a collection of application-security focused professionals without developer outreach, education, and more outreach. Application (and software) security isn't about security people at all, it's about developers...

September 19, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

The grey hat is more interested in the “how” than the “why”. There is a respect for the black hat's technical abilities, while keeping a wary eye on them. Some grey hats have had run ins with the law, not due to being malicious, but because curiosity got the best of them...

Marketing to the Cynical, Skeptical, and Jaded

August 24, 2012 Added by:Jack Daniel

Words like engagement and community are overused by charlatans, marketing gurus, and social media experts- but if you cut the crap and actually engage the community, people will pay attention. Influencer is another abused term, but some people have more of a voice in the community than others. Ignoring people who aren’t ready to buy could be a very bad idea...

Black Hat and BSides Las Vegas: The Enemy Within

July 30, 2012 Added by:alan shimel

There was a time that Black Hat was where the edge met the establishment, but Black Hat has gone totally corporate and seems to have lost the edge. All of the edge seems to have gone to BSides.
