Guest Interview: Shay Chen - 6:05PM-6:55PM


Shay Chen is an information security Analyst, Researcher, Consultant and Speaker. He is also a prominent blogger, and in addition to the occasional attack vector publication, currently focuses on publishing frameworks, evaluations and comparisons of information security products.



  1. How did you get your start in information security?

Five Questions

  1. Three words to describe yourself.
  2. If you were a serial killer, what would be your weapon of choice?
  3. If you wrote a book about yourself, what would the title be?
  4. In the popular game of ass grabby-grabby, do you prefer to go first or second?
  5. Choose two celebrities to be your parents.

Discussion: Top Ten Reasons to Get Into Information Security- 7:00PM-7:20PM

Sponsored by Tenable Network Security, with currently 60+ openings in engineering! Some details:

  • Vulnerability researchers, requires strong sys admin and scripting skills
  • Compliance researchers, aka audit file and plugin writers, knowledge of federal and industry-specific standards
  • Reverse Engineering has one opening, working with LOTS of different technologies
  • C and C++ SW engineers – especially if you have experience with packet capture, socket programming and protocol development
  • And you can’t build all this great stuff without QA engineers – we like our QA teams to know a little about security. Great for a sys or network admin who wants to move over to the software side. Most require some automation experience.
  • Positions for SW Engineers and Web Application Devs who dig security:
  • Web Backend developers who know about ElasticSearch, data modeling and analytics, as well as Cloud/Amazon Web Services – extra points if you know the Go programming language.
  • User Interface developers who know Javascript, but also have experience building dashboards.
  • Software Engineers who can build enterprise applications using PHP.
  1. For the fame and glory
  2. You can apply (or learn) a diverse technical skillset
  3. There are plenty of jobs
  4. Emerging industries always need help with security
  5. You will never be bored
  6. You get to break things
  7. You can love hardware, software, or both
  8. You will get to, most likely have to, create things
  9. You can help define standards as we are still a relatively young industry
  10. There is lots of opportunity to create your own startup in security

Bonus: The pay is good....great? better than average? statistic anyone?
