Scot Terban ISC2 Board Candidacy

August 23, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Ok, so after a flurry of tweets about the candidacy of others, my name got thrown in there like so much pasta being chucked at a wall. Well, it stuck in my case and I decided to run. So, if you think that I can get in there and stir up some trouble, and maybe make some changes then VOTE FOR ME in this petition...

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...

On Project Viglio

August 21, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

A group such as this, extra-legal as they seem to be and rather deliberately evasive using the rubric of “secrecy” as their cloak should set all of your spidey senses off. At best they are a group of people seeking to do good, but in fact may be doing ill by carrying out poor OSINT...

Defining One Successful Strategy for Enterprise Security

August 20, 2012 Added by:Rafal Los

In far too many organizations leaders and practitioners tell me that the role of Information Security is to protect the organization. Accepting this thinking got us into the predicament where are today, where security isn't everyone's job and only Infosec is thinking about security. This couldn't be more wrong...

Breaking Into Security: Planet Earth Edition

August 14, 2012 Added by:Ian Tibble

As a pentest guru wannabe, you may possess extremely high levels of fuzzing, exploit coding, and reversing skills, but you will never get to use them and you will intimidate most interviewers. There are easier ways to break into systems. Security is insufficiently mature in most organizations to warrant pentesting...

Not Providing Education is the Dumbest Idea for Infosec

August 14, 2012 Added by:Rebecca Herold

Every year or so, an otherwise smart information security professional publishes some really bad information security advice about how awareness and training is a waste of time and money. Bottom line for all organizations: Humans have always been and will always be the weakest link in security...

On Secploitation...

August 14, 2012 Added by:Javvad Malik

To honour the new found love-affair the media has with security, I predict Hollywood will jump on the Secploitation bandwagon, so I’ve done the hard work and come up with some sample titles. If you’re a producer or director and need scripts, get your people to give my people a call. We can work something out...

What Information Security Can Learn from Waiting Tables

August 12, 2012 Added by:Robb Reck

What makes an organization effective is in knowing what their customer-base needs or wants. We are only as valuable as the service we give to our customers. For many of us, our primary customers are internal. The business leaders, the IT department, our vendors, and many others are the customers who are served...

Security Information Addict

August 12, 2012 Added by:Scott Thomas

Part of the infosec profession is staying abreast of news and events. You need to know what attacks are going on in order to know how to defend against them. The problem with this is that it consumes all your free time. What you start to realize though, is you become addicted to information overload...

Infosec Fill-in-the-Blank: Security BSides Las Vegas Edition

August 08, 2012 Added by:Tripwire Inc

The hardest part about security is...? Security BSides Las Vegas attendees finished the sentence, and Infosec Island‘s Anthony M. Freed caught them on camera. The responses range from insightful to geeky, depressing to funny, and some are harsh, some others pragmatic, but all are quite sage...

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...

No Infosec Sacred Cows

August 02, 2012 Added by:Dave Shackleford

Most security awareness programs SUCK. I bet the majority of the awareness proselytizers are doing the same old crap with some stupid Web-based Flash thingie that people click through as fast as they can, and a little printout goes in their HR folder. UGH. That doesn’t work, never has, and never will...
