Doubt – Deceit – Deficiency and Decency – a Decade of Disillusionment Derbycon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Doubt – Deceit – Deficiency and Decency – a Decade of Disillusionment
Derbycon 2012

Waking up with the sudden and shocking realization that I cannot escape the feeling that I have wasted a decade of my life. I am an infosec professional and I’ve been doing the best job that I can. Except nothing works right. Have I really wasted a decade? Can I prove myself wrong?

Through a mixture of news stories, teachable moments, hard-won experience and perhaps an interpretive dance – you will be taken on a journey of maturity and self-discovery — an examination and ultimately a determination on one information security professional’s decade of trying to make a difference. (NOTE: Due to union regulations there shall be no interpretive dance.) (NOTE 2: This is technically a cyber-finance and cyber-critical cyber-infrastructure talk, you can totally claim the CPEs for it.)
