Am I an Imposter? - Warren Kopp Bsides Cleveland 2014 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Am I an Imposter?
Warren Kopp

Technically I'm an information security professional. I have security in my title, I deal with vulnerabilities and the like. I can't pop boxes, I can't reverse malware, I can't pwn noobs. I've learned by watching and asking the community, I teach policy, concepts, state of mind. I empower others to ask why, to try things that no one thought of. I try to understand concept of security as it relates to my employer, and educate as many as possible to do the same. My job is education, outreach, and sometimes investigation and mitigation. Infosec isn't all shells and linux, IDS and blinkenlights. There's another side that is just as valuable.

I went to college an art major, started really learning about computers by breaking my OS constantly and rebuilding. I've moved through arts jobs to help desk to sysadmin, finally to AppSec at an ISV.
