The Official RSA Conference Guide by Industry’s Top Snarkers

Sure, sure — you can check out the voluminous agenda and event catalogs detailing what you’ll find at RSA this year. But to get the real scoop on “where the world talks security”, you need an insider’s view, and the most accurate, full-featured, and entertaining take on the world’s largest security conference comes from us. Head over to the RSA Conference Blog site and soak in all the blogs you can find from the Securosis Team.

I’m delighted and honored to join my colleagues in contributing to this year’s conference Official (Unofficial) RSA Conference Guide. Like Rich said, I still can’t believe RSA gave us a mile-long leash; I’m looking around in disbelief, waiting for posts to disappear from the site.

InfoSec World- Best, Worst and Common Practices for Securing Enterprise WiFi

The afternoon of Monday, March 23rd at InfoSec World in Orlando, I’ll be giving a talk in the mobile track titled “Best, Worst and Common Practices for Securing Enterprise WiFi“. Since the event site doesn’t post the full abstract, I figured I’d share it here for you, and I’ll tweet the crap out of it so you can find it.

Your Favorite Speakers at Infosec World 2015

Okay, in full disclosure this probably isn’t going to be a list of YOUR favorite speakers, but it’s a list of some friend, colleagues, and mentors you don’t want to miss at this year’s Infosec World.

A key to the session ID codes is below, and my favorite schedule format is their at-a-glance you can get here http://www.infosec-world.com/OS15_Grid_for_Web.pdf. Infosec World 2015 is March 23-25 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Orlando, FL.

In no particular order… Oh, actually these are mostly alphabetical by last name. Deviant’s at the top because I wanted that handsome devil above the crease. That, and he’s doing an opening keynote.

Diana Kelley: 3 Books that Changed My Life

Diana Kelley: 3 Books that Changed My Life

In this series, I asked infosec professionals to name 3 books that changed their life. This entry features picks from Diana Kelley, an industry mover and shaker currently serving as an executive in IBM Security Systems.

If you looked at my profile and Diana’s side-by-side, you’d think we must run in the same circles – we’ve spoken at many of the same events, both serve as faculty at IANS, have written content for the same magazines. But the truth is I didn’t “find” Diana until some time last year, and it was purely by chance. She’s one of those extremely level-headed, fun, and energetic people that just has a magnetism you can’t resist and she’s a pure bottomless pit of positive professional energy. Going in to 2015, I look forward to connecting more with Diana. You can too, through the links at the bottom of this post.

Jack Daniel: 3 Books that Changed My Life

In this series, I asked infosec professionals to name 3 books that changed their life. This entry features picks from Jack Daniel, the self-proclaimed security curmudgeon and peer-described “glue” of our industry.

Perhaps best known as the co-founder of Security BSides, there are many accolades of Jack’s professional success, and I might say the more subtle, softer side of Jack is often overshadowed by his well-developed curmudgeonly persona. The short version is that he wins awards, does great things, helps lots of people, and will never turn a blind eye or hurried goodbye to a friend in need. He does all this while sporting an exceptionally long beard and skeptical brow, both of which he’s well known for.

The Best Damn 802.11ac Channel Allocation Graphics, Ever
The Best Damn 802.11ac Channel Allocation Graphics, Ever

As I was writing a series of wireless articles recently, I searched for graphics. I wanted a graphic that could show the 802.11 5GHz channels, clearly denote DFS frequencies while correctly noting the Dopplar-avoidance rules, visually show channel width options and also included the newly-added 802.11ac channel. My requirements for this graphic were apparently too demanding.

Request to Readers – Quick NAC Survey
Share
I have a little request to all my blog readers. Hey, I don’t ask for much, but here’s a little favour I’d like to ask of you, since you’re most likely interested or involved in network security, NAC or 802.1X technologies. My good friend, colleague, managing editor and lab director Mike Fratto has posted questions for the Information Week 2009 NAC Survey. I’d like to ask all of you involved in, evaluating, implementing or thinking about NAC to take a few moments and complete the survey (link is at the bottom) by Thursday, March 5th. More

I’ve been punchy these past few days; I’ll apologize for this week and in advance for the next one. After a week of hopping around the Southeast, I’m heading down to Charlotte with Jack for a talk at the US Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force meeting. More
