It's 3:00 on a Friday, What Could POSSIBLY Go Wrong?

Phillip Mahan

KSUC 300

3:00 on a Friday, when people are antsy and ready to go home to miss the traffic and get their weekend going. This is a prime time when mistakes happen. This presentation will take you on a journey, from 4:00 to 4:50 on a Friday, about the Human element, Security, and Communications for when that 'Oooops' moment occurs. One way to prepare tomorrow's Security Professionals is to let them know what we've lived through in the past and how to deal with the Duct Tape and Chicken wire that comprises most internal networks.
