The Luxury of Security presented at BSidesKnoxville 2017

by Joe Fitzpatrick,

Summary : We're rapidly approaching computational post-scarcity. The history of computing has gone through many phases that could be defined by what we do with 'spare cycles' - do we increase performance, do we add usability features, add interconnectivity, or even add security?
I'll take a look back at some history of hardware and software development to identify how we allocated our spare cycles over time, and perhaps explain why securing things will continue be a challenge for some time to come and how we can best approach it.
