Offense From Defense - My Rocky Path to the Dark Side presented at BSidesGreenville 2020

by Leo Pate Iii,

Summary : Many security professionals live in one of two worlds; offense or defense. While there is a rise of offense and defense collaboration, more often than not, these two worlds are often silo'd. This talk will focus on how I made the jump from IT to defensive security, to offensive security and the lessons learned along the way. By citing real case studies over the past 11 years, I will show how IT, coding, defense and offense security are all woven together and how skills in one, sharpens the others.
