Keynote - Hackers, Hugs, & Drugs.... Part II - Amanda Berlin SecureWV/Hack3rcon 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Keynote - Hackers, Hugs, & Drugs.... Part II
Amanda Berlin
SecureWV/Hack3rcon 2018

As a continuation of information after my previous presentation "Hackers, Hugs, & Drugs: Mental Health in Infosec" I'll be providing more information, what I've learned over the last 2 years talking to others about this topic, and some exciting new things that are taking place. Now more than ever the Mental Health issues we face as a community and species have become too common and too stigmatized. We can work in our hacker family to help each other, others, and ourselves cope with the everyday stresses and issues facing us.

Amanda Berlin is an Information Security Architect for an Ohio based professional services company. She has spent over a decade in different areas of technology and sectors providing infrastructure support, triage, and design. While working the the healthcare sector Amanda has been involved in creating a secure method of Payment Card Industries (PCI) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance and building a comprehensive phishing and awards based user education program. Amanda is an avid volunteer and has also presented at a large number of conventions, meetings and industry events. Some examples of these are: DerbyCon, CircleCityCon, GrrCon, and DEFCON. She is currently working on co-authoring a Blue Team best practices book as well working as part of a team on an open sourced phishing and user education software package. While she doesn't have the credentials or notoriety that others might have, she hopes to make up for it with her wit, sense of humor, and knack for catching on quick to new technologies.
