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

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.

After last week’s announcement of the ArubaAirWave merger, many are asking what’s in store for the newly-acquired AirWave. I mean… merged. (This word tends to bring to mind a really big tail and a really small dog).

I get asked this question a lot….. “Can we have our wireless controller at the central office and APs at the other offices?” The answer to this is usually “yes and no”. I know, helpful, right?

Naughty Little NACkers
Share
They promise you the world. “You want toast- great, it does that too!” I guess we’re used to that. I’m not naive here- I understand the cogs of the IT Sales World, but for some reason NAC vendors go above and beyond. They just make crap up. They scratch, claw, lie and cheat their way into your heart- and your pocketbook. More
