Summary : Drawing on the wisdom of some of the best minds in security and intelligence, this talk uses insights from Zen practice to challenge security practitioners to call into question how they think about computer networks and security, and more than that, how they think about thinking. The intention of the talk it to press people to leave their comfort zones, however expert they might be, in order to observe themselves thinking about attacking and defending networks, then build the disciplines that will make such self-examination habitual and frequent. Such practice leads over time to genuine mastery.
