Information and Computer Security is a multi-million dollar business.

I am part of that business. And it’s wrong. An industry that was started with the highest of ideals, the most pure of motives has deteriorated into a crass, commercial race-to-the-bottom. Or at least it feels that way most of the time. In this presentation, a security heretic will outline a very personal journey through the meat-grinder of the information security industry and will ask you to join in this interactive discussion and walk through some critical self-analysis, some harsh criticism, some ludicrous stories, and hopefully exact the answers you need as you work through your own crises of faith in your career in Information and Computer Security.
