The Concept of Technological, Compliance and Security Debt
by: David Sopata

Finding it hard to explain to non-technical people the value of continually upgrading technology, processes, and/or systems? Tired of management telling you “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”? Feeling the burn of buying parts on eBay for a system that should have been replaced 10 years ago? Are you having trouble finding COBOL developers? Welcome to the concept of Technical Debt. The concept has been around however, it has not necessarily been applied well or communicated effectively to others outside the INFOSEC world. David Sopata who is an Information Security Professional who specializes in Compliance, Continuous Improvement, Risk, and Auditing will provide a recap of what Technical Debt is, how it could be applied within your environment, and how it can apply not only to Technology, but Security, Compliance, and Business Processes.

Ever find yourself at a job fair, or submitting your resume to all those closely guarded infosec positions? Do you wonder if you are lost in the endless see of paper that get shoved into a HR or Recruiter’s hands? How do you make yourself stand out amongst the crowd. Welcome to Standing out in the crowd, the right way. We will be discussing tips and tricks on how to get your resume, profile, or name into the ear of the right people and once you’ve landed that coveted interview, tricks to creating a lasting image of who you are.
