Marcus Ranum, an internationally recognized expert on security system design and implementation, will present “They Really Are Out to Get You: How to Think About Computer Security” at the UNENIX Security Symposium.
This tutorial is a high-level mental toolkit for thinking about security in applications and administration. It’s aimed not at the tactical level of security (where most of us spend our time) but at the strategic level, and how to think about security as a problem, overall, rather than getting mired in the details.
An early innovator in firewall technology and the implementer of the first commercial firewall product, Ranum has served as a consultant to many FORTUNE 500 firms and national governments. He also has been a technology adviser to startups, established companies, and venture capital groups.
He is chief security officer for Tenable Security, where he is responsible for research in open-source logging tools and product training.
