Abstract: The Information Security field has grown into something few imagined. From regulatory and compliance to dedicated security personnel, security is a field that technology birthed and it’s not going away anytime soon. Like any new field, it has its share of concerns and problems but how are we looking as a whole? We have more and more budget being spent every year on protecting our organizations from hackers, and yet we continuously see a large trend of breaches and attacks largely successful. As an industry we are getting there slowly, but with anything in technology we have to be fluid, responsive, and proactive. This talk is a look at the Information Security field, what we are doing to protect ourselves and where we need to go. In traditional Dave fashion, we’ll be showing some cutting-edge hacks and breaking things, and a look at what’s to come. Welcome to 2011, a new year, a new set of breaches, a new set of regulations, and a new set of attacks.
