Security Bsides is a grass roots, DIY, open security conference framework! Security BSides is a great combination of two event styles: structured anchor events and grass-roots geocentric events. This is the umbrella organization that BSides Nashville takes its leadership and philosophy from. Nashville’s a great city and we have a growing community of information security professionals and hobbyists. Bsides Nashville is a 100% volunteer run and organized conference. We learn, teach, experience, befriend and reconnect in a comfortable environment. Whether you’re a Blue teamer, Red Teamer or a Green newbie, all are welcome and we have a place for you. This is the neutral ground between Developers, Sysadmins, Security practitioners, DBAs and even CISSPs! This is a fun time and we want everyone with an interest to come and be a part of the community.

The hacker/security community continues to struggle with how to get our message across to others. We know what's wrong, what's insecure, and what needs to be done to fix the problems. BUT...we seem to hear more stories about failure rather than success stories. Maybe WE are part of the problem. It's easy to give a talk at a conference where you're "preaching to the choir" and everyone speaks your language, but how do you fare when you are trying to give the message to your boss, or your bosses' boss, or C-Level management? This talk will explore a variety of techniques that I’ve learned over my 20+ years of consulting/advising customers about how to get the right message to the right people so real change happens. I'll explore obstacles, attitudes, and challenges that I've faced in hundreds of companies; practical methods for getting your point across; helping others to understand what you are saying; learning to speak their language; and helping them to draw the desired conclusion. This is part art, part science, and maybe a little luck - but I believe there are skills you can learn that will make you a successful communicator and get your message heard.
