Everything I Need To Know About Security I Learned From Watching Kung Fu Movies - Paul Asadoorian Derbycon 2017 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Everything I Need To Know About Security I Learned From Watching Kung Fu Movies
Paul Asadoorian
Derbycon 2017

Whether you are a fan of Kung Fu movies or not, this will be an entertaining and informative look at various aspects of computer security. We’ll discuss how to learn computer security, the student & teacher dynamics, practical security tactics for defense and offense and explore some of the political and social aspects of security. Whether you are trying to break into the field of security, trying to defend your network from attackers or just plain want to be a better security professional, this is the talk for you. More detailed topics will include: Your teacher may be reluctant to teach you The consequences of taking shortcuts in your training There will always be adversaries more skilled than you The best defense is to have a good offense The “softer” skills will more likely than not lead to victory Heroes don’t always start out as such

Paul Asadoorian spent time “in the trenches” implementing security programs for a lottery company and then a large university. Paul is offensive, having spent several years as a penetration tester. He is the founder of the Security Weekly podcast network, offering several freely available shows on the the topics of information security and hacking. As Product Evangelist for Tenable Network Security Paul built a library of materials on the topic of vulnerability management. In 2007 Paul co-authored a book called “WRT54G Ultimate Hacking”, and since then has been passionate about the security of IoT. When not hacking together embedded systems/IoT devices (or just plain hacking them) or coding silly projects in Python, Paul studies Kung Fu (Shaolin Long Fist) and, of course, watches Kung Fu movies.
