    Summary:  "Being unconquerable lies with yourself; being conquerable lies with the enemy." - Sun Tzu, The Art of War

    This sentiment rings true not just of war in the context it was originally intended, but also in the context of being defensible against cyber-attacks. Being unconquerable (or, as close to it as possible in the world of information security) is your responsibility; as long as your armor is solid, your data and reputation will be as safe as possible.

    This presentation will take you through common flaws in penetration testing, how to think like a hacker to discover vulnerabilities, and how to be proactive instead of reactive with your development.

    Bio: Matt has been in the tech sector for 15+ years designing, testing and deploying secure network solutions and systems for the military and private sector clients. Matt performs physical penetration tests, social engineering engagements and assessments of all kinds for FRSecure.  Certifications held include: Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Payment Card Industry Professional (PCIP), Aruba Certified Mobility Professional (ACMP), Extreme Networks Design Professional (EDP), WatchGuard Certified System Professional XTM (WCSP-XTM).
