"So What?" The Most Important Question in Information Security
- Kevin Fiscus
- Tuesday, October 8th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm
The world of information security is filled with sophisticated technical concepts and 0-day "sploits". Penetration testers ride high as the elite of the security community. Unfortunately, the business aspect of security often gets lost. Penetration testers sit confused when their boss or their client doesn't seem to care about getting "root" or domain admin access. The communication gap widens when that boss or that client fails to fix identified problems or to follow sound recommendations. Fortunately, security professionals can solve these problems by just asking a simple question, "So what?"
