September 20, 2012 Added by:Richard Stiennon

Like in many matters involving science and technology, scientists and technologists should be brought into future deliberations on cyber legislation. The technologists that make the Internet operate and the security experts that battle to defend it need to be brought to the table...

Breaches: Digital Transparency, WARPs, and Collective Intelligence

September 19, 2012 Added by:Christopher Laing

BSidesDetroit: ConBlu, and a First Try at Presenting

June 03, 2012 Added by:Scott Thomas

The great thing about the people (and our industry as a whole) is that people attending were willing to share their thoughts and what they did to stave off burnout. The conference itself was awesome. The different tracks made it easy to have hallway-con, as well having a teaching area, and a lock-pick village...

May 14, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Security Leaders Give Up

April 12, 2012 Added by:T.H. Enders

Breaking News: In uncanny synchronicity, CISOs, CSOs, auditors, and security consultants up and walked off their jobs today. It's hard to say what the repercussions will be. Pundits, analysts, and DHS are still trying to get a clear picture of the breadth of the problem...

Wanted: Software Security Specialists... Are There Any?

November 22, 2011 Added by:Rafal Los

You don't just go to college, get a degree in 'software security' and walk into a job being great at it - mostly because that degree doesn't exist, but also because the days of being able to walk into a job like this are probably long behind us...
