Paranoid Security For The Security Professional


Our very own Nick “Twitchy” DiPetrillo has posted his presentation from MIT Security Camp. Nick takes us through a brief introduction on how many people, including security professionals, can become owned (my presentation followed and demonstrated this).
He then goes on to describe “The Car Battery Security Model”, and numerous layers of defense that you can employ to protect your assets. It is important to note that these are tips and tricks for advanced users, not something you want to roll out to your end user necessarily (unless you want a riot on your hands).
