Rediscovering Our Way: OWASP AppSec Ireland 2012

September 20, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

We can't expect the OWASP community to continue forward as a collection of application-security focused professionals without developer outreach, education, and more outreach. Application (and software) security isn't about security people at all, it's about developers...

Four Horsemen of the Infosec Apocalypse and the Freak Power Ticket

September 18, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Four Days and Counting for (ISC)2 BoD Petitioners

September 13, 2012 Added by:Le Grecs

The same "good 'ol boys/girls" keep returning time and time again. When their terms are up, they "sit out a year" and then the next board nominates them as one of the BoD-recommended candidates. Keeping the same old board will result in a certification that continues to be disconnected...

Scot Terban ISC(2) Board Petition UPDATE

September 05, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

It seems that when one “petitions” to run for the board, one must have the signatories send an email instead of just fill out their information on some excel sheet or online petition. If you are wanting to sign the petition for my being able to run for the BoD please email me...

Real World Information Security

September 05, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

Alex uncovered a poorly designed web page and convinced it to give up its secrets. What followed was a quick RDP war trying to plant our backdoor. I found myself with root level access having blasted away at it using Metasploit and uncovered several Easter eggs instructors had planted...

Infosec Recruiters Examine Security Career Trends

August 30, 2012 Added by:InfoSec Institute

"Penetration testers, the guys that come onto the sites—they’re highly in demand... In terms of technology, I think these guys see security in a different light than other people. They sort of can see it as a whole picture. Penetration testers are looking at it in a completely different light...."

Official Statement on ISC2 and the Freak Power Ticket

August 26, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Vote for the horsemen. If not me, then the others for a bigger point here. Those of you who take the ISC and CISSP seriously need to look at your org. Do you think that any with this certification are good at what we do because we took a test and adhere to some ethics rules the board ignores when they see fit?

Your CISSP is Worthless - So Now What?

August 23, 2012 Added by:Dave Shackleford

OK, so it’s not really worthless. So what do I propose? I say scrap the whole thing. Start over. Build a cert and program that tests fundamental skills and means something to employers who really need things done. Offer existing cert holders one year and a free test to get the new one. Otherwise, they’re out...
