Infosec Fill-in-the-Blank: Security BSides Las Vegas Edition

August 08, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

The hardest part about security is...? Security BSides Las Vegas attendees finished the sentence, and Infosec Island‘s Anthony M. Freed caught them on camera. The responses range from insightful to geeky, depressing to funny, and some are harsh, some others pragmatic, but all are quite sage...

August 05, 2012 Added by:Stacey Holleran

If your organization were to experience a serious disruption in network connectivity due to a weather event, a fire or a cyber attack, how quickly could it resume business operations? Which people, processes and technologies would be involved in the recovery? How can you be sure nothing has been overlooked?

On Security Awareness Training

August 05, 2012 Added by:PCI Guru

Security awareness training has its place, but it is not a silver bullet. The world is full of risks and a security professional’s job is to minimize those risks and manage the remaining residual risk. This is why security is done in layers, so that when people make that mistake you minimize the impact...

On Surviving Black Hat

August 03, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

The sessions felt somewhat lack-luster – a lot of what I was hearing had been said before. Many of the conversations were consistent with other events and the topics felt replayed. The horrifically long coffee queue at Starbucks provided me with time to people watch, so here are my Black Hat 2012 observations...

No Infosec Sacred Cows

August 02, 2012 Added by:Dave Shackleford

Most security awareness programs SUCK. I bet the majority of the awareness proselytizers are doing the same old crap with some stupid Web-based Flash thingie that people click through as fast as they can, and a little printout goes in their HR folder. UGH. That doesn’t work, never has, and never will...

Blackhat, BSidesLV and DefCon Oh My... 2012 Edition

August 01, 2012 Added by:Boris Sverdlik

The upside for being in Vegas for BlackHat is that BSidesLV runs concurrently. BSides always tend to be much better events. The attendees are rarely the vendor mouthpiece types and this alone makes the conference enjoyable. I had attended more talks at BSides than I have at other conferences combined this year....

Rebooting Infosec Cons

July 31, 2012 Added by:Dan Klinedinst

I just got home from the "Vegas week" of Black Hat, BSidesLV, and DefCon. I love many things about each, and each has things I wish they'd do better. This is true of all the conferences I've attended. However, a few questions are lingering in my mind after Vegas, possibly due to the effects of sleep deprivation...

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. I love both Black Hat and BSides and think each needs a little bit of what the other has to be whole, viable and successful...

Information Security, Hackers, and Vigilance

July 30, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

The bottom line: Attackers are always looking for mistakes, outliers, and inconsistencies so they can use them against you. This means your security programs need to be robust, resilient, measurable, and – as much as possible – consistent (vs. ad hoc)...

Is Security Awareness as Effective as We Imagine?

July 24, 2012 Added by:Hani Banayoti

We cannot relax our technical security deep-dive efforts just because we think we deliver good corporate security awareness. Did high profile technology and security companies like RSA, GlobalSign, DigiNotar, Sony, Yahoo, Linkedin etc, not have good security awareness when they got compromised? I'm sure they did...

You Shouldn't Train Employees for Security Awareness: Rebuttal

July 23, 2012 Added by:Boris Sverdlik

I tried to keep my comments limited to Twitter, but with this pile up on Security Awareness, I felt an obligation to put my opinion out there once again. @Krypt3ia and @iiamit have both posted their rebuttals respectively calling each other wrong of course, but where's the excitement without debate?
