Title: Ten ways to fail at Information Security – Chris Clymer, SecureState
Since leaving corporate life to become a consultant 9 months ago I’ve had the opportunity to observe and assess security programs across a wide array of companies. Hospitals, banks, utilities, law offices and grocery stores…everyone does security a little bit differently. One common theme has been that there is no one “right” way to run an effective security program. There are however so many spectacularly different ways to do security wrong! In this presentation I will highlight ten different ways that I’ve seen security NOT work, and which likely WON’T work for anyone, anywhere.
Chris Clymer’s BIO: Chris is a senior security consultant with the Advisory Services practice at SecureState, a Cleveland-based security consultancy. Chris is a co-host of the Security Justice podcast, is an organizer of Security Bsides Cleveland, a founding member of the Cleveland TOOOL chapter, and of course a board member of the Northeast Ohio Information Security Forum.
