Yesterday I had the opportunity to give another one of my infosec career talks … this time AppSecDC. In an effort to better link the general strategic advice we all usually get with more actionable tactical steps, I narrowed the talk to only focus on web application security. This seemed to work well. Anyway, here is the talk abstract as well as links to the slides and career exploit kit.
“The Easy Button for Your Web Application Security Career”
The web application security field has been rapidly growing over the past decade due in part to the continued webinization of the world in combination of ever evolving government laws and regulations, industry compliance requirements, and the ongoing increases in online crime. If you have an interest in the web and security, there has never been a better time to make the transition into this specialization. For those already practicing in this field it’s a great time to take advantage of this rapid growth and managing your career to most efficiently meet your goals. Although many career presentations or articles leave people motivated, they don’t often provide the quick next steps that participants can take home and immediately start implementing. This presentation tries to overcome this deficiency by not only discussing career planning basics but also providing a career “easy” button with a template framework and actions audience members can start working on immediately.
If you were at AppSecDC and got a chance to hear my talk … let me know what you thought! Today’s post pic is from WashColl.edu. See ya!
