Acquired Curiosity

  • Kevin Tyers
  • Wednesday, February 20th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm

Curiosity is essential to a successful career in Information Security. The passion to dissect and understand technology is one of the most sought after and admired skills in technology jobs today. While we spend much time lauding the incredible power of curiosity, we don't spend nearly enough time teaching people how to be curious. Challenging the notion of "natural curiosity", this talk will provide a simple framework for enabling and enhancing our curiosity. We will discuss how to get started being curious, what to do when you are stuck, how to share your findings, and how to tell when you reached a good stopping point for your research. This talk is for everyone, no prior experience is necessary.
