Title: Infosec State of Affairs: Too much Kim Kardashian - not enough Malcolm Gladwell

Speaker: Derek Carver

Session Description:

In security we obsess about vulns, exploits and attacks with headline-grabbing names like Petya / Nyetya, WannaCry or Eternal Blue, and not enough on the fundamentals. 

Sexy technospeak marketing names dominate a field where dozens of companies compete to sell you the latest Silver Bullet One-Size-Fits-All miracle cure widget. This tabloid-esque fixation with style over substance creates a "Kim Kardashian Effect" that produces little long term value and burns precious resources better used on a Back to Basics approach.  

This talk will discuss the benefits of a fundamental security hygiene program both from a technology and a business perspective as well as provide attendees with practical advice on how to improve their own operations using tools you probably already own. 

Examples discussed will highlight how Blue Team members can become a force multiplier through a return to basics and security 101, and how a focus on the basics can pay higher dividends than the latest glitzy next-gen widget.
