Javvad Malik – named the “Most Entertaining Blogger” and “Best Video Blogger” at the European Blogger Awards 2013 – presented “How Embracing Social Media Helped Me Stop the Hackers, Save the World and Get the Girl” at BSides Las Vegas last week.
It’s pretty much a career development talk, especially for security enthusiasts like us, sharing some tips on how to go from a faceless security dude, to a slightly less faceless security dude.
I used to be a security professional, but even my boss didn’t remember my name. My brilliant ideas weren’t listened to, I was never invited to speak at conferences and not even my mother visited my blog. In this talk, I will take you down a journey of self-discovery that took me 3 years and went from another faceless security dude, to being slightly less faceless. What worked, what didn’t work and all the behind-the-curtain magic exposed. If you’re interested in carving out your space, making your voice heard amongst the 100% of security rockstars’ and dinosaurs who get all the attention – this is the talk for you.
