Posted on February 26, 2016 in Uncategorized - 0 comments - 0

Screen Shot 2016-02-26 at 8.57.37 AMThe author of How Not To Be Hacked was accepted to speak among 1,000s of researchers at the largest information security conference in San Francisco. In the Atlanta area, James, has shared insights at conferences and chapter meetings including InfraGuard, ISACA, the Technology Association of Georgia, and Fulton County schools. Over the last two years I have been building the content and sharing the insights from the book, and now I am excited to gain fresh tips for all of our community. I’ll be sharing them as I receive them via the newsletter.

Curious about the session … here are some great Q&A about my upcoming session.  If able, please join me at the session or grab me for coffee during the event in San Fran!

1. How Not to Be Hacked—Take the Advantage (P2P2-R08)

Who are the attendees who will most benefit from—and contribute to—this Peer2Peer session? Do you have a specific role or job title in mind? Or even the kind of skills and mindset you are looking for?

  • Seeking Attendees who are: Trendsetters, change agents, visionaries, and passionates seeking to make a difference one life at a time
  • Proper titles of those who will contribute to the session: Product Security Leaders, Parents, and Directors of Security

Why do you believe that your topic is important for the information security industry—and your attendees—to be thinking about?

  • Important to industry: Today 3.1 billion people are online and not empowered or informed making it impossible to secure every App and Device.
  • Important to you: Empowering people to protect themselves prevents human trafficking, enhances quality of life, and limits digital negative events

Challenge: Are YOUR family members, parents, children, and friends safe and secure online today because of your profession?

Can you describe one or two things you would like the attendees to think about prior to the session, as a way to prepare themselves for the discussion? 

  • What do you do habitually when navigating to a new website? What do you check? Do you type in URL? Do you Google it?
  • How do you protect your children on social media sites? Do you use manual reviews, monitoring software, account management, denial?

What kind of outcome are you hoping for at the end of the session? What will attendees walk away with afterwards?

Desired outcome: A fresh look and optimism on how to transfer habits of highly knowledgeable security professionals to regular people.

Takeaways:  Specific simple and highly potent techniques and tips to make the digital world safer and happier for our friends, family, and colleagues.
