Personal Digital Security 101 presented at BSidesOrlando 2017

by Derek Banks,

Summary : Data breaches and digital theft are now so frequent in the daily news cycle we almost become numb to it. As Information Security professionals we often get asked by friends and family if large companies and government agencies to not be able to stop attackers, what chance does an individual or a small business have? Their concern for digital safety for the average person is well placed as all of our lives are now integrated into a digital society. This talk will go beyond “run Antivirus and don’t click on stuff” and map best practices from the corporate enterprise security model to an average home user or small business environment to demonstrate that they actually do have a chance to avoid a digital catastrophe.
