FEAR AND LOATHING IN SAN FRANCISCO (RSA PRE-GAME)

by alex on February 26, 2012

So it’s early Sunday AM, and I’m getting my RSA Schedule together finally.  So here’s what I’m looking forward to this week, leave us stuff in the comments if you’ve identified other cool stuff:

===============

Monday:  8 freaking AM – I’m talking with Rich Mogull of @securosis about Risk Management.  Fun!

Monday is also Metricon, this year run by Russ and Scott Crawford.  Should be good.

I’m capping my Monday off 4-5pm at BSides for this little gem:

Name: Dr. Mike Lloyd
Talk: Metrics That Don’t Suck: A New Way To Measure Security Effectiveness

===============

On the Tuesday, I’ll be speaking with Mortman, @csoandy, Ally Miller, Bob Blakely at the Risk Management Smackdown II:  Wrath of Kuhn

It’s in room 309.  Don’t know how this happens, but I get to be the dumbest person on the panel.

That afternoon, I’ll probably pop over to BSides to hear Wade Baker and Chris Porter talk, and @ch0rt is doing a part 2 to his Security Moneyball talk.

===============

On Wednesday, at 10am in room 309, I’ll be talking about Metrics.  Should be awesomesauce.  Don’t know how this happens, but I get to be the dumbest person on the panel (again).

===============

THURSDAY, THURSDAY, THURSDAY!!!!!

Preston Wood, Kelly White, and Mike Fowkes from Zions Bancorp are talking about their Hadoop install and Security Data Warehouse.  So, yeah.  The hype?  Pshaw, these guys are DOING IT.  GO.  Go to see this.  Srsly.

That afternoon, there’s a peer2peer risk management session going on.  Ally Miller and I are talking about Frameworks for some reason.

===============

FRIDAY

On Friday I gotta get down.  I’ll spend a large amount of my time trying to figure out if I should take the front seat, or kick it in the back seat.

Thx for the shout-out for my BSides session, Alex. Indeed, feel free to “shout out” in the talk on Monday – I’m all in favor of well-informed hecklers …

(Today’s definition of “risk”: getting up to defend slides that use the word “risk”, in front of an audience including clueful risk analysts.)

Just a clarification: Bryan Ware was Chair of this MiniMetircon, not me or Scott Crawford. Scott and I collaborated on the last panel: “Data Mining for Enterprise-level Security”
