ISSA-LA August Meeting

Needs a location

When frustrated we may ask ourselves “where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?”, but we rarely have the time to really reflect on where we’re going as an industry and how we got here- and who led the way. The people and ideas which were the foundations of information security are not ancient history, yet few of us know much about them. We are too busy running to keep up and never have time to look back. In this talk we will meet some of the people who founded and advanced our field, and hear some of their stories. Presentation: Jack Daniel Jack Daniel is the Community Advocate for Tenable, is a co-founder of Security BSides, a community builder, storyteller, technologist, historian, mentor, and security professional. He has over 20 years' experience in network and system administration and security, and has worked in a variety of practitioner and management positions. Jack is a technology community activist, a podcaster, and a frequent speaker at technology and security events. Jack used to put letters after his name but he doesn't anymore; some fell off, others were pushed.
