Pushing Security from the Outside

Presented at BSidesLV 2016, Aug. 2, 2016, 5 p.m. (30 minutes)

In this talk I will discuss my experiences in furthering security in my company from the outside (I don't work on the security or IT). You will learn about my approach to encourage security with my team, peers and other employees. I will share my efforts to social engineer our security team and security leadership to increase security in our company. I will cover both my successes and failures and provide ideas and insights to help improve security within your company that can be used from the outside, like me, or if you work in security on a daily basis.


  • Chris DeWeese
    I work a manufacturing company leading a awesome team of programmers who write software to support test of our products. Security is my hobby and maybe someday my full time career. When not working I can be found surfing the interwebs and sometimes the ocean. I also enjoy running, walking with my dog, going to baseball games, sci-fi, comics, photography and sampling and brewing craft beer.
