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.

For whatever reason, we all seem to live with the delusion that wireless networking works like a wired connection, but over the air. And, in that world, we also have leprechauns. The truth is the layer 1 (physical) properties of wireless and RF are completely different;

Lately, I’ve been forced to dispel a volume of wireless myths, both in way of technology and vendors. I’m not sure if it’s a full moon, or some other astrological occurrence, but it’s gotten a little crazy recently. So, I thought I’d take a few blog posts to address some wireless myths, in brief, to keep in the back of your head as you explore wireless solutions and upgrades in your environment. Here’s a thought on why more APs aren’t always better.

Network Based Entitlement… A Rose by Any Other Name
Share
Shimel’s interesting-as-usual reply to one of Stiennon’s “I-hate-NAC” articles is certainly nothing new, but this most recent exchange piqued my interest enough to get me clicking and reading around a bit. Stiennon talks about Rohati and their ‘new’ approach to NAC in the form of their NBEC, Network-based Entitlement Control. I, unlike some bloggers in our network, decided to check it out before formulating an opinion. More
