Security Mind Expansion

Information security is always changing and to keep up with these changes we need to somehow upgrade the professionals to keep up. In order to do this we need to expand the brain of the information security professionals. In this presentation we will cover several modern day philosophy concepts and how to incorporate these concepts into your everyday practice. These concepts include: ontological design, looking-glass self, feedback loops, flow state, cognitive play. Applying these concepts will hopefully expand your mind and improve how information security is conducted.
