In this presentation Kevin Johnson of Secure Ideas will discuss community and how we are only as good as the people who surround us. Security is a huge undertaking and as it becomes more and more central to industry and our world, we have to improve the ethics and community it has. Kevin will explore some of the failing of the security "community" (whether it is the field as a whole or the regional groups supporting us all) and use these stories to help us all improve what we do and how we help each other.
