Description: Shmoocon 2012: Part 1 Doing Infosec Right
The offensive security geeks have had the spotlight for long enough. Yes, it.s awesome that you found another .sploit and written some python shit. However, there are a whole lot of people working in the trenches and still following a manual that was poorly written a decade ago using equipment that doesn.t do what the vendor said it would. It.s time to change that.
It is possible to make Defensive Security into something more than the drudgery of a work-.a-.day job. Despite what you may think, it can be pretty damn sexy. Spend some time with this fully interactive threesome discussing how we can all do a better job with the tools and people you already have and make a difference in the security of organizations. Your participation is requested, expected and frankly required. We're going to be Doing Infosec Right.
