Common Sense Security Framework - Jerod Brennen @slandail Bsides Cleveland 2015 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Common Sense Security Framework
Jerod Brennen @slandail

PCI. HIPAA. CFPB. We're KILLING small businesses with over-regulation in the name of security, while turning a blind eye to the fact that the cost of over-regulation is doing more harm than good, distracting business owners from realistically focusing on the risks that apply to their companies. It's time to have an open, honest conversation about a "common sense" security framework.

By day, Jerod (@slandail) is CTO & Principal Security Consultant with Jacadis, an award-winning security solutions and services provider. By night, he’s a husband, father, writer, filmmaker, martial artist, musician, gamer, and social media junkie. Jerod has over a decade of IT, infosec, and compliance experience. He spent years as an Information Security Specialist with American Electric Power, one of the largest electric utilities in the U.S., before moving to Abercrombie & Fitch, and multibillion dollar international luxury retailer. At A&F, Jerod built out and managed the information security program. His team was tasked with security operations, PCI and SOX compliance, and identity and access management. At Jacadis, Jerod is responsible for performing security assessments, penetration tests, and security architecture reviews, as well as evaluating security technologies on behalf of Jacadis clients. He applies his hands-on experience in support, management, and budgeting roles to help Jacadis clients identify and implement reasonable and appropriate security controls to meet their security and compliance obligations. Jerod has presents frequently for local and regional information security professional organizations, as well as larger information security conferences. He also teaches information security courses on behalf of MIS Training Institute, both domestically and internationally. His approach to infosec has two key tenets: you shouldn’t be afraid to void warranties, and you shouldn't need to bypass security to get your work done. http://about.me/slandail
