Protecting Phalanges from Processor Pressure Points - Matthew Clapham BSides Detroit 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Protecting Phalanges from Processor Pressure Points
Matthew Clapham

Injuries due to computers aren,t something commonly heard of in today,s information technology environments. Computers, tablets, and cellphones are getting lighter and thinner every generation. Yet they still pose a hazard when dropped. I will take a humorous look at what happens to the processor and the person when a laptop is inevitably dropped on a foot. Due to an unfortunate event many of us have experienced, I will walk through the physics and show calculated estimates for speed and force applied. Finally, comparisons to other industries protection methods will be shown as suggestions for how to make personal computing devices less dangerous.

Matthew (Matt) Clapham makes products more secure. His career is a rare blend of both product development and enterprise operations. He is currently a Principal Product Security Leader at GE Healthcare. Matt previously worked as a Software Tester, IT Policy Author, Auditor and Security Advisor to all things games at Microsoft. He is familiar with security foibles in all software and how to overcome them. Mr. Clapham is frequent speaker and author of magazine articles on IT, security, games or some combination thereof. He holds degrees in engineering and music from the University of Michigan.
