AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 CONS presented at BsidesAsheville 2014

by Jayson E. Street,

Summary : This is a talk on perspectives. I step outside of mine to see hacking around the world though different views. We will explore how companies who publish reports help skew the global perspective. We will look at how people from different parts of the world see hacking/ information security from their own perspective. We will hear a few tales of what I saw through my perspective of a stranger in a foreign land. We will then explore a small slice of history of a few hackers to gain a better perspective of where we have been, where we are now and where we are heading. This talk was not only created to entertain and enlighten the conference attendees to take a step back and look at what they themselves are a part of. It was made for them to share with friends, family and coworkers. So people on the outside could get a better understanding of what a hacker truly is and why being one is such a great thing to be!
