I've been thinking a lot about the culture of security since RSA Conference 2014, and find myself returning to a topic that got me in trouble three years ago.
Another RSA Conference and BSidesSF is in the books. Here's a look back at our coverage for the week.
Each year at RSA Conference 2014, I team up with David Spark, founder of Spark Media Solutions. Specifically, he creates a bunch of clever, high-quality videos from the showroom floor and then I share them. So far, he has sent me four videos done for Ziff-Davis.

For RSA Conference 2014, we partnered with IBM to create content that's beneficial to customers of both our companies. As part of the effort, I was interviewed by Mary Karnes, a product manager with IBM Security Services. The ultimate question: how best to respond to DDoS attacks.
Karnes primarily focuses on services that help defend against web attacks (including distributed denial of service) and targeted attacks. Information security has been her focus for more than 13 years, as the leader of a penetration testing team, manager of a security intelligence team, and as a security transformation executive. She holds two patents and a masters degree in telecommunications.
