Summary : Funding security toys^Wproducts used to be easy. Getting the business to understand why security costs keep changing is HARD. Many of the real problems in information security are not about technical prowess with packet dumps or disassemblers, they're about the fact that most security people don't know a debit from a credit and couldn't budget their way out of a wet paper bag. In this talk the five of us will show how social engineering can be applied to get your security program fully funded without resorting to FUD tactics and screaming matches. We'll cover all this and more with a little shouting, a lot of scolding, and some live demonstrations. (See what I did there!)
