Overview

What are the critical skills that extremely successful infosec professionals need and how can we develop these? Obviously technology matters but it's not just about technology.

In Ted Demopoulos's research, talking to, interviewing, and basically hanging out with infosec professionals that are so successful that the moniker "Rock Star" is sometimes entirely appropriate, he has distilled 5 critical professional, and sometimes, life skills. This talk covers these 5 skills with plenty of practice advice.

Speaker Bio

Ted Demopoulos

Ted Demopoulos' first significant exposure to computers was in 1977 when he had unlimited access to his high school's PDP-11 and hacked at it incessantly. He consequently almost flunked out but learned he liked playing with computers a lot. His business pursuits began in college and have been continuous ever since. His background includes over 25 years of experience in information security and business, including 20+ years as an independent consultant. Ted helped start a successful information security company, was the CTO at a "textbook failure" of a software startup, and has advised several other businesses. Ted is a frequent speaker at conferences and other events, quoted often by the press. He also has written two books on Social Media, has an ongoing software concern in Austin, Texas in the virtualization space, and is the recipient of a Department of Defense Award of Excellence. In his spare time, he is also a food and wine geek, enjoys flyfishing, and playing with his children.
