2012: The End of Security Stupidity

Although the Mayans predicted the world would end at the end of 2012, I am predicting that 2012 will mark the end of stupidity in the world of information security. How much longer can we put up with: meaningless certifications, inadequate technical training, vendor point solutions that do not stop criminals and nation-state attackers, and hoards of industry know-it-alls that comment on everyone else's woes while secretly freaking because they themselves are probably owned as well. All will change in 2012.

This presentation explores two main areas:
1) what's wrong with security today from the perspective of a seasoned technical security executive who has worked across government, start-ups and the private sector, and
2) provides some fresh thinking on how we can all move past the recent apocalypse of hacktivists, nation-sponsored groups, and deficiencies, including gaps in training, collaboration, technology, and security operations.
