My first year with (ISC)2

It’s been a year, and I thought this marked a great opportunity to revisit my positions of a year ago, when I was naive to the inner workings of the organization, and see if they’re still valid and in my cross-hairs.

InfoSec Life Lessons from Dr. Seuss- keynote debut and BruCon

Recently I had the pleasure of unveiling my new keynote, “InfoSec Life Lessons from Dr. Seuss” at the BruCon conference hosted each year in Gent, Belgium.

For the first time, I stepped completely outside of my comfort zone of technical content and in to a realm of virgin leadership territory. It was terrifying, exhilarating and I’m so happy to share it with you here. The full video presentation is available on YouTube in its entirety. Some anecdotal scenes are detailed below by timestamp.
