Infosec: Be All You Can Be

August 22, 2012 Added by:Randall Frietzsche

So what is an Infosec professional? Like the Samurai we're really warriors, we're soldiers in a battle of good vs. not-so-good. We craft our skills, we increase our knowledge, we strive to be better than those who might do our Enterprises harm, breach our castle walls and loot our treasures of data and services...

Ready for the New ISC2 Computer-Based CISSP Exam?

August 16, 2012 Added by:Michael Gregg

For almost 20 years, the only way to obtain the CISSP certification was by completing a six-hour, 250 question, paper-based exam. That is being replaced with an electronic version. This change in test delivery should have candidates thinking about how to successfully deal with the new electronic format...

The Hacker Highschool Project

August 14, 2012 Added by:Pete Herzog

We need to get teenagers to realize how small they are in a big field. Hacking is a huge field and the one who knows the most about how things work is going to be the most powerful. That teaches students to respect that small bit of power they get from the lessons and to keep teaching things to themselves...

Get a BYOD Policy Now

August 09, 2012 Added by:Michelle Drolet

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. In creating a policy you have to consider what devices to support, how much access to give them, and what kind of budget to allocate. Do you have specific compliance issues? Are you willing to subsidize data plans or device purchases? How do you ensure company data is secure?

August 05, 2012 Added by:Stacey Holleran

If your organization were to experience a serious disruption in network connectivity due to a weather event, a fire or a cyber attack, how quickly could it resume business operations?

On Surviving Black Hat

August 03, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

The sessions felt somewhat lack-luster – a lot of what I was hearing had been said before. Many of the conversations were consistent with other events and the topics felt replayed. The horrifically long coffee queue at Starbucks provided me with time to people watch, so here are my Black Hat 2012 observations...

Blackhat, BSidesLV and DefCon Oh My... 2012 Edition

August 01, 2012 Added by:Boris Sverdlik

The upside for being in Vegas for BlackHat is that BSidesLV runs concurrently. BSides always tend to be much better events. The attendees are rarely the vendor mouthpiece types and this alone makes the conference enjoyable. I had attended more talks at BSides than I have at other conferences combined this year....

Rebooting Infosec Cons

July 31, 2012 Added by:Dan Klinedinst

I just got home from the "Vegas week" of Black Hat, BSidesLV, and DefCon. I love many things about each, and each has things I wish they'd do better. This is true of all the conferences I've attended. However, a few questions are lingering in my mind after Vegas, possibly due to the effects of sleep deprivation...

Don’t Freak Out, It was Only DefCon

July 31, 2012 Added by:Brent Huston

Disregard tales of drunken hackers menacing Vegas hotels, changing signs and doing social engineering attacks. They are good for amusement and awareness, but they are NOT really useful as a lens for viewing your organization’s risk or the steps you should be taking to protect your data. Instead, stick to the basics...

Defcon Grows Up and Gets Recruited as an Asset

July 31, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

With the advent of Anonymous and Stuxnet and the nascent idea of the internet becoming a “digital nation state” we all have to be mindful that while the technologies out there are a commodity, so too are we in the great game of cold war intelligence and cyber war. We are the commodity that makes the new exploit...

On Failing Gracefully...

July 18, 2012 Added by:Neira Jones

You know the feeling: You think you have it all under control, you think you've engaged with the right people, you have buy in from those who matter, the right culture is in place, you're not struggling for investment and bang! You get hacked. Overwhelming sense of failure ensues. Where did it all go wrong?
