Learning through Mentorship - Michael Ortega Magen Wu Derbycon 2015 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Learning through Mentorship
Michael Ortega Magen Wu
Derbycon 2015

‰ÛÏTry Harder‰Û ‰ÛÏLurk Moar‰Û ‰ÛÏYou're doing it wrong‰Û In the InfoSec community, we pride ourselves on being able to learn on our own and believe going through a ‰ÛÏtrial by fire‰Û is necessary in order to be a respected and established in the community. What we don't realize is, we have many opportunities to better guide each other and learn from one another in order to improve...but are we making the best use of those opportunities? In this talk, we will explore the benefits of mentoring based on research we gathered and using data collected from within our industry. We will also discuss what makes a good mentor/mentee and how to get the most out of the relationship to help one another-and the community-grow.
