Why you shouldn’t trust (awareness) experts, what should you trust instead, and my 2018 new year resolution.
By Eh’den Biber
Prologue – SANS
During the SANS European awareness summit, I’ve ended up in an interesting debate on twitter with one of the attendees (John Scott). The debate was on the observation I made that science was not part of the agenda in this major awareness summit. There was not a single scientist on stage to talk about their breakthrough research, and none of the tweets about the event (#SecAwareSummit) included any science in them.
My observations didn’t go that well with John, who seems to have taken it a bit personal. To show me I was wrong he mentioned that Jessica Barker gave a talk. Yes, she did, and yes: she’s a (civil design) doctor, and I barely finished Kindergarten.
