PaulDotCom Security Weekly - Episode 222 Ron Gula Pool Party" - for Thursday December 2nd, 2010.
Roundtable Discussion Topic:
Thanks to Jack Daniel for a sampling of discussion topics:
- A perennial good one for a discussion: Privacy vs. Security. Can you have both, is there a balance, etc. This can get deep into human psychology and cultural anthropology very fast with the right crowd.
- A few years ago at Shmoocon, the closing panel discussion was around the responsibility of hackers, responsibility to each other, society, etc.
- In my speed debates in Las Vegas and Ottawa, the question "do vulnerabilities matter" sparked lively discussions- and the consensus was opposite at the two events. (in LV, Corman, Dennis Fisher, HD and I all took the "no" position, audience agreed. In Ottawa I was alone in that position on the panel, and the audience was against me, too).
- Another one from the debates- Security Metrics- are the real and actionable? Recent studies into medical science have shown that even the scientific methods we hold up as the standards are plagued with errors and outright fraud- where does that leave a new and rapidly evolving industry like ours?
