I Survived Rock'n'Roll: Security Incident Escalation and Response

Presented by

Winn Schwartau, CEO, The Security Awareness Company

About this talk

The Show Must Go On! How Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Bob Marley and Charlie Daniels prepared me for the Security Industry. This highly entertaining and relevent presentation maps the skills needed in my first career as a recording engineer for live productions to best practices for cyber security incident reporting and escalation. A great case for interdisciplinarianism. Our cyber-security education system fails to train adequately. We don’t teach history – to our own detriment. We don’t create a foundation of actionable knowledge, instead relying on book knowledge. We don’t explore interdisciplinary synergies and we have failed to embrace failure as a well-earned skill set. In the music business, we had to deal with constant failures, beginning with equipment malfunctions in our DIY world. We had to be able to fix on the fly and deal with the human foibles of musicians and unions (i.e., users). Join me in looking at decades of technology and how so much of we have all learned in “Prior Lives” can be the live lessons for how we deal with information security.
