Speaking at GFIRST 2012

I will be speaking at the GFIRST (Government Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams) 2012 Conference, which is hosted by the Department of Homeland Security. The conference brings together speakers, vendors and more than 1500 attendees from the cyber security arena for a week-long event featuring industry-related presentations, product demonstrations and training.

Together with partners David Roberts and Jonathan Quigg, we will be giving an hour-long, intricately-choreographed presentation entitled, "Social Networking: The Next Weapon Against Bad Actors." The talk details how social networking strategies can be applied to facilitate knowledge sharing within the cyber security community and empower the community to act even more effectively against bad actors, the people responsible for malware, viruses, identify theft, spam and other nefarious activities.

I just received official word that upper management at GDAIS has approved the final version of the presentation. So GFIRST is a go!

One amusing note from last week is that upper management thought the presentation would be too long for an hour slot because there's slightly more than 60 slides. During the demo, though, we demonstrated that the presentation is actually done in an entertaining and fast-paced way, and that the presentation was actually a little short instead (we added some new slides, as well as expanded commentary on a couple of key slides).
