Summary : The biggest problem in corporate information security is the people performing the work. There are those outside the security field, and even many inside the field, who think they know what they need to know about security but clearly dont. Additionally, some people know a great deal about one aspect of security, but are woefully weak in other aspects and dont know it (or want to know it). Because of this phenomenon, most organizations have a false sense of security. Using entertaining analogies from martial arts and psychology, Ira Winkler will discuss this critical security failing, sharing tips on how to tell if you are dealing with people who are properly skilled, and how to plan your security programs accordingly.
