We are Handling Security the Wrong Way

A session at BsidesSF 2012

Monday 27th February, 2012

1:00pm to 2:00pm (PST)

This talk covers how organizations, large and small, can benefit from looking at security a new way. The way we think about security is wrong. We are optimizing the wrong things.

Some examples of how we are handling security incorrectly include:

  • 47% of developers don't know if their open source is out-of-date.
  • We use vulnerability scanners to identify assets.
  • We hire penetration testers before having a simple security process in place.
