What Dungeons & Dragons Taught Me About INFOSEC presented at DerbyCon 2014

Summary : What can anyone possible learn about working in the information security world from a library of fantasy books, stacks of paper character sheets and handfuls of plastic polyhedrons? Surprisingly quite a bit. This talk will dive into some of the core background behind Dungeons and Dragons (and really any RPG) and show how some of the same concepts that many of us learned during our nerdy days rolling D20s apply to the infosec community and the work that we now face on a daily basis.
