Cognitive Injection - Andy Ellis (ShowMeCon 2014) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Cognitive Injection
Andy Ellis

ShowMeCon 2014
http://www.showmecon.com

It’s a trope among security professionals that other humans – mere mundanes – don’t ‘get’ security, and make foolish decisions. But this is an easy out, and a fundamental attribution error. Everyone has different incentives, motivators, and even perceptions of the world. By understanding this — and how the human wetware has evolved over the the last fifty thousand years or so — we can redesign our security programs to better manipulate people. Bio: Andy Ellis is Akamai’s Chief Security Officer, responsible for overseeing the security architecture and compliance of the company’s massive, globally distributed network. He is the designer and patentholder of Akamai’s SSL acceleration network, as well as several of the critical technologies underpinning the company’s Kona Security Solutions. Andy is at the forefront of Internet policy; as a speaker, blogger, member of the FCC CSRIC, supporting Akamai’s CEOs on the NIAC and NSTAC, and an advisory board member of HacKid. He is a graduate of MIT and a former US Air Force officer, the recipient of the CSO Magazine Compass Award, the Air Force Commendation Medal, The Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, and the Spirit of Disneyland Award. He can be found on Twitter as @csoandy.
