hacker-ng: Farming the Future IT Crowd - Phil Grimes (th3grap3ap3) OISF 2015 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

hacker-ng: Farming the Future IT Crowd
Phil Grimes (th3grap3ap3)

With growing trends in globalization, the Information Technology bundle of industries continue to be saturated with bodies and starving for talent at the same time. In this session, hear the perception of a basement hacker turned IT professional about learning how to learn, the challenges of growing up in "the underground", and bridging the gap into the professional arena; and members of the Reynoldsburg High School Cyber Patriot team who are forging their skills and identities within the Information Security crowd. We have to grow beyond "turning it off and then turning it back on again". Fostering the growth of talented kids is vital to strengthening the ranks of industry roles in the future by getting involved and engaging them on their turf. This is a high-level discussion on how we (and our peers) view, interact with, and take part in watering the fruit of tomorrow,s IT Crowd.
