The computer security industry several huge problems. These problems routinely coagulate together to from 'digital binary explosives' - naturally, in the wild. We can use these to gain access to places we shouldn't be able to reach. Imagine being able to have access to every spy satellite at once. How many barriers could you see past? What could you assert about a place? Could digital binary explosives get you past any of those barriers? It's broadly known just how ineffective the security industry is right now - but we're all happy living in denial about it. The security posture of large companies who were recently breached and did huge public DFIR campaigns are great examples, and live demos are even better examples - we're doing both. Live, on-stage, we'll discover some companies who have not yet been breached, but are candidates for a breach based on their security posture, and we'll cover how the current 'curriculum' of 'how to get a job in infosec' is partially to blame.
