Calling Bull$#** on Women in Infosec

Okay folks, I’m tired of hearing about “women in infosec” in its current topical form. I’ve stayed miles away from this topic for years, but now I’m going to speak up. And, to start the conversation, I call BULLSHIT. Not on the notion that we need more women in infosec, but on the methods, the justification and the explanation of why (or, lack thereof).  Hang tight for that one – the why – that’s coming in my next post.

JJ’s Sessions at RSA 2014- NAC, Mindfulness, Snowden and more

Hey everyone, I know I’m a little behind getting my RSA Conference updates out, but, well, s#!7 happens! I hope you’ll accept my better-late-than-never post letting you know where I’ll be during this year’s RSA festivities. This year, be sure to check out the Neuro-hacking 101 session I’m presenting with Mike Rothman. I think it’s safe to say it’s one of the first (if not the only) of it’s kind for an infosec conference. Also, be sure to catch this year’s NAC P2P session. It always fill up quickly and this year we have a new twist.

Calling All Infosec Curmudgeons at RSA

Calling All Infosec Curmudgeons at RSA

Well, that time is finally here, and in just a few days, Mike Rothman and I will be taking the stage at RSA 2014, in a room that seats 520 attendees, to discuss a topic never before breached at a security conference thus far. That’s 520 hearts and minds we have the opportunity to influence, but our goals aren’t so lofty. If we can open up just a handful of minds, that would be an amazingly gratifying experience. In fact, if the information we offer reaches just ONE of our infosec colleagues and offers a him or her a better life, well then, we’ll mark it as a success!

Realizing the descriptions provided in the booklets, and even online, are minimalist, (I guess that’s what’s expected at an event with 25+ tracks, hundreds of speakers and thousands of sessions) we thought you might like to know a little more about our strange little session on neurohacking and mindfulness. Specifically, we’ve received several questions about the appropriate colors of crystals to bring, and whether there will be Tarot cards available at the door. As it turns out, you guys are really funny, but there are no crystals or Tarot cards. Good one, though; that was very clever.
