Information Security is constantly in the news and making headlines. Which companies are breached? What are the impacts? How will the government respond to adversarial nations? The Internet still behaves much like the wild west – policy decisions are consistently being made and changed based on the structure and sustainability of the web. Organizations large and small are feeling the impacts of having a poor cyber security posture. This talk is perfect for those who are beginners, career changers, or anyone who needs a refresh on the building blocks of information security. It will discuss how data can be compromised, what those impacts are, and some suggestions of first steps. We will then dive into what vulnerabilities are and what to do about it. Finally, we will go over the things the rest of the 101 track will cover.
