How embracing social media helped me stop the hackers, save the world and get the girl! - Javvad Malik (BSides Las Vegas 2013) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

How embracing social media helped me stop the hackers, save the world and get the girl! - Javvad Malik

I used to be a security professional, but even my boss didn't remember my name. My brilliant ideas weren't listened to, I was never invited to speak at conferences and not even my mother visited my blog. In this talk I will take you down a journey of self-discovery that took me 3 years and went from another faceless security dude, to being slightly less faceless. What worked, what didn't work and all the behind-the-curtain magic exposed. If you're interested in carving out your own space, making your voice heard amongst the 100′s of security ‘rockstars' and dinosaurs who get all the attention - this is the talk for you to attend.
