Security lessons from the Woofmutt… - Chris Roberts (Circle City Con 2019 Videos) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Security lessons from the Woofmutt…
Chris Roberts

Circle City Con 2019

Life, and all of its lessons can come from many directions, in this instance I’m going to take a step back from the normal avenues and focus on what a pair of large Great Danes have helped me learn about our industry…some thoughts below: • Puppy eyes, drool AND sideways looks work…social engineering IS a good skill to have • Try everything at least once, even if it means sticking your head in the trashcan… • Always be upfront, that way there’s no miscommunication • If at first you fail, try again; eventually you will get the chew toy on top of the bookcase. These lessons and more will be covered, dissected AND somehow related to us as humans and technologists. All discussed while waving hands on, and with the normal sarcastic humor levels.

Chris is currently the CSS for Attivo Networks, and is working on a number of projects within the deception and services space. Over the years, he's founded or worked with a number of companies specializing in DarkNet research, intelligence gathering, cryptography, deception technologies, and providers of security services and threat intelligence. Since the late 90’s Chris has been deeply involved with security R&D, consulting, and advisory services in his quest to protect and defend businesses and individuals against cyber attack. Prior to that he jumped out of planes for a living, visiting all sorts of interesting countries and cultures while doing his best to avoid getting shot at too often. (Before that he managed to get various computers confiscated by a number of European entities.) Roberts is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on counter threat intelligence and vulnerability research within the Information Security industry. .....and I come armed with Whisky....
