This week Chris and Wolfgang talk to Dave Kennedy. Normally people only ask him about SET and social engineering. However, while we did talk about those things, we were really interested in his Key Note talk about Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES). It’s about changing the industry.

There were some other fun nuggets in there too:

This week, Wolfgang and Chris talk to Mark Lenigan. Mark’s talk is called: Cyberwar: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Fight the F.U.D. It’s a rebuttal to Richard Clark’s Cyberwar: The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About It. Mark had some very insightful things to say.

From there, Mark talked about the other thing he’s doing for Bsides Detroit. He’s planning a Range Trip for Friday morning. Security Geeks with Guns. He talked about letting them know you’re a novice and the rules of the gun he lives by, more strict than the NRAs. Check it out, it’ll be worth the time.

Rats and Rogues: The BSides-Det Interviews 019

So after talking with Jen Fox, for episode 018, and learning of The Moscow Rules… Wolfgang and Chris decided to play spy. They found a burlap sack and snuck up behind Scott Thomas.

The next thing he knew, he was in the mobile podcast booth (Wolfgang’s car under the El) outside Bsides-Chicago. Scott is going to tell us about Dealing with InfoSec Flameout. This time it’s not the job that’s burning you out, it’s the studying outside of work while trying to break that InfoSec job mold. This started as a blog post and became larger than he thought.

Scott Thomas can be found (unharmed):

This week Chris and Wolfgang talk to Leonard Isham. Leonard is security practitioner and social engineer that travels 100%. He’s taken Leonard’s talk is about negotiating, during the hiring process. While they may not budge on the amount they’re willing to pay you, they may give you other perks. From Leonard’s point of view, we leave too much on the table because we don’t ask for it.
