Are you a janitor, or a cleaner? - John ‘geekspeed’ Stauffacher & Matthew ‘Mattrix’ Hoy GrrCON 2014 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Are you a janitor, or a cleaner?
John ‘geekspeed’ Stauffacher & Matthew ‘Mattrix’ Hoy
GrrCON 2014

In the wake of several major commercial breaches “DEFENDING” is the new hot topic. The industry had always favored attack and penetration and many people need to understand how to defend and respond to active attacks.With the changing trends in Information Security, Incident Response is something that everyone talks about, but nobody really has a good grasp on how to do. Take your Incident Response up a notch – stop just mopping up the mess and really start cleaning. This presentation is an ongoing discussion on new and inventive ways to handle incident response. Too many organizations are relying on “set it and forget it” – mall-cop style (observe and report) security. We are being passive, letting business drive our security posture. Applications are being rolled out before vetting because of a “fuck it, ship it” mentality – that is leading to a subjugation of the security community as a whole – it’s time we start taking an *active* role. We need to stop being janitors, and start being professional cleaners.
