Everything’s Gone Green: A Reflection on “Growing Up” in “The Industry” presented at Converge 2014

by Zach Lanier,

Summary : Speakers Zach Lanier Duo Security Converge Conference It (almost) goes without saying that the “infosec industry” has changed dramatically in the last 10-15 years. Things shift on a near-daily basis…from technology and techniques, to people and culture. Infosec stars of all kinds have risen, fallen, gone supernova; vendors have gouged and devoured each other; and snake oil’s been repackaged a hundred different ways. This keynote presentation takes a lighthearted look at someone’s infosec career adventure over the last decade-and-a-half, highlighting changes in the “scene”, the “industry”, and significant tech. With any luck, it’ll help give an idea of where we’ve all been, and where we’re all going.
