The Information Security atmosphere has moved beyond 1337 h4x0rs and 5cr!pt |<iddi3s. Attacks and attackers are more sophisticated (and more stupid) than you could imagine. As an InfoSec professional, I'm frustrated that my peers have failed to recognize the potential in their SysAdmins, Network Admins, and Programmers.

This talk aims to educate you to the Brave New World of InfoSec and how you can help improve security without crippling your users.

This talk will focus on the emerging concept of "Usable Security," and your place as Perl programmers in it. Hopefully the Q&A session will be more of a group discussion.
