Keynote – How Not to do Security - Kellman Meghu (TakeDownCon Rocket City 2014) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Keynote – How Not to do Security - Kellman Meghu

Join me for a critique of the LucasFilm epic, from the perspective of a security audit. Let’s review the security procedures and practices of the Galactic Empire, and see what they did well, but more importantly, learn from the mistakes they made. Prepare for a discussion on security policies and procedures, applied during the events that lead to the catastrophic business impact the Galactic Empire suffered as the result of data loss. This data was then turned against the Empire, with an advanced persistent threat that targeted, and eventually destroyed critical infrastructure. Then let us re-examine the situation with a proper security policy in place to understand how even the most basic policy approach, could have saved the Empires business, employee lives, and ultimately billions of dollars.
