The Impossibility of Protecting the Enterprise at $7.25 an hour - (BSides Knoxville 2015) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

The Impossibility of Protecting the Enterprise at $7.25 an hour

Kevin Thomas

BSides Knoxville 2015

This talk will focus on the challenges Retail organizations, kiosk companies, etc face in protecting their critical systems and data. Your typical retail location typically doesn't have badge access doors, server rooms with biometrics, or a designated person to check and vet all visitors. Instead the security of these locations relies on a guy/girl making $7.25 an hour who cares more about lining up a ride to next years Bonaroo than questioning the person who just plugged something into their local switch. The talk will focus on the challenges (with examples of security fail) of securing the retail enterprise with limited and uninterested resources.
