Talky Horror Picture Show: Overcoming CFP Fears - Kat Sweet (Circle City Con 2017 Videos) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Talky Horror Picture Show: Overcoming CFP Fears
Kat Sweet

Circle City Con 2017

I see you shiver with anticipation. For those who have never submitted a talk to an infosec conference, the process can seem nebulous and overwhelming. Fear is driven by uncertainty, so let's combat that fear with facts. Come hear a reviewer break down what the CFP process actually entails, including what goes on behind the scenes once you've hit "submit". You'll also learn about resources to help you along the way. Performing a risk analysis of every step of the CFP lifecycle - from developing your initial idea, to writing and submitting a talk proposal, to preparing to speak once you've been accepted - we'll see that the downsides are minimal and the benefits are numerous. As a certain mad scientist put it: "Don't dream it. Be it."

Kat Sweet is a security analyst who will soon be jumping the puddle to join Duo Security's corp sec team. She got her speaking start in the BSidesLV Proving Ground, where she returned last year as a presentation mentor. She currently serves as the CFP co-chair for CircleCityCon, and recently joined the staff of BSidesLV as their lockpick village coordinator. Her speaking credits include BSidesLV, CircleCityCon, CypherCon, SkyTalks, BSides NoVA, and the DEF CON Wireless Village. A renaissance woman with too many hobbies, she enjoys long walks on the beach, bursting into song, and picking unsuspecting locks.
