University Education In Security Panel
Bill Gardner (@oncee) - Ray Davidson - Adrian Crenshaw - Sam Liles - Rob Jorgensen
Derbycon 2014

A university education in security – is it right for you? And what does university education in security even mean? Is a university education the proverbial locked door to hacker success? And if it is, what is the bump key, shim, pick, or high explosive to open that door? A panel of middle,aged white males who expressly disavow any relevant expertise will discuss the advantages, issues, and possible reasons you may (or may not) want to engage in an overpriced long term commitment. What are the benefits, risks, and pitfalls of a university education for the hacker? Is there a meaningful difference between education and training? What is the role of certifications, and accreditation? Arguments against education of hackers have just as much bias as arguments for it. And these pale in comparison to the arguments for and against hacking of education, which may or may not be discussed by this panel. Long term, what is the direction of information security and systems security education for the hacker community?
