Presentation title: Overcoming Objections to Security in Reluctant (and Even Hostile) Environments presented at BsidesDFW2013 2013

by Mike Landeck,

Summary : Ideas and techniques for improving security programs are common topics at security conferences and webinars. However, when enthusiastic attendees return to their places of work more often than not their enthusiasm turns to frustration as they face a host of roadblocks. This talk will identify categories of roadblocks, the motivations behind them and some ideas to overcome the opposition of this new breed of obstructionist. The talk will provide real-life examples and tips and will NOT play the FUD card.
The audience will be encouraged to discuss their attempts and experiences in implementing and inserting security improvements in to their programs.
