Security Management War Stories presented at BSideSLA 2013

by Wendy Nather,

Summary : Forget about "securing the human": it's hard enough just to manage security people. This talk will feature real-life stories around hiring, managing and firing security professionals, and share the lessons learned. Aspiring (or current) CISOs will learn from tales such as, "Interview With a Security Stoner," "Getting Hacked By Someone You're Trying to Fire," "Protecting Your Staff From Themselves," and "Pass the Brain Bleach." If you just want to know how to maximize your chances of getting hired into security, or want to know how to keep your job, these stories will also inform and entertain. Time will also be dedicated to audience interaction, because there are plenty of other good war stories out there.
