Billy Hoffman: Inside the Hacker’s Studio Interviews Dave Marcus: Director and Chief Architect of Threat Research and Intelligence for McAfee®'s Federal Advanced Programs Group SkyDogCon 2013 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Billy Hoffman: Inside the Hacker’s Studio Interviews Dave Marcus: Director and Chief Architect of Threat Research and Intelligence for McAfee®'s Federal Advanced Programs Group
SkyDogCon 2013

The discussion probably started over a few bottles of Dave's homemade beer, or maybe in a gym... no, wait. Dave doesn't go to the gym to talk. However it started, the idea came about... How about having a "Inside the Actor's Studio" style interview, but with notable hackers in our community. Knowing Billy has an awesome stage presence, and that Dave Marcus had done a large amount of work in and for the hacking community, the two of them together talking on stage HAS to be interesting, if not just downright entertaining.

We bring you the another installment of "Inside the Hacker's Studio"!
