How can security professionals better engage with their peers, both in person and online? In this Dark Reading Radio show, we will talk to leaders at some of the security industry’s professional organizations about how security pros can get more involved – with their colleagues in the same industry, with their peers in other industries, and with the IT security community as a whole.

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. The event is absolutely amazing, extremely well-managed, features some of the best speakers, and offers actionable content. The energy and collaboration was off the charts and I would highly recommend any colleagues to attend this conference if given the opportunity.

The opportunity to share a new message was a key point of my excitement at this conference. 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.

As a Board Member of not just (ISC)2, but also of the (ISC)2 Foundation, I’m very excited to share that (ISC)2 is offering a live, in-person Safe and Secure Online Volunteer Training right here in North Carolina on Tuesday, December 2nd. The training runs from 11am-2pm with a break for lunch. It’s definitely worth the drive from Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Raleigh, Sanford, Durham and even Charlotte and Greenville. These live trainings are typically only offered at large industry events such as the RSA Conference and Security Congress. As the event description notes, it really is a unique opportunity and I hope my colleagues in the area will join me in taking full advantage!

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

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.
