Throughout the history of information security people have asked a simple question; why do people do these things? Incidents ranging from unauthorized access to crafting of sophisticated malware are all the results of an array of motivations, and mindsets. This presentation will cover some of the top drivers for the "hacker" mentality and touch on the approaches they use that align to their end goals.
Presentation outline:

Threat ranges from the mundane to the advanced and persistent
Common traits among historical greats
An application of psychology to an incident investigation
The sources of all evil may not be what we think
The next generation of hackers and where they are headed
