Working in IT often means finding creative ways to get the most out of a situation that has been given to you. Whether it's fixing issues you didn't cause or adapting to changes the guide didn't take into account, it's about figuring out how to fix the proverbial airplane in-flight – and 2020 hasn't really made it easier for anyone.
To give tired IT decision-makers some respite – and also because we are geeks who apologize to chat! – Ars is organizing a live streaming panel discussion next week with Ars IT / Infosec Editor Emeritus Sean Gallagher He will sit down with our hand-picked group of experts to discuss how companies (and the ITDMs they contain) approach their processes and strategies The new reality of remote work, the pandemic and whatever the hell else adjust, adjust in the world now.
Look who is speaking
We brought in three panelists to speak to Sean:
- Marcus J. Carey, enterprise architect, ReliaQuest. Marcus has spent more than 20 years in penetration testing, incident response and digital forensics with federal agencies such as the NSA, DC3, DIA and DARPA.
- Katie Moussouris, LutaSecurity CEO. A computer hacker with more than 20 years of professional cybersecurity experience and co-author and co-editor of ISO 29147 (for vulnerability disclosure), ISO 30111 (for vulnerability handling processes) and ISO 27034 (for secure development).
- Ed Skoudis, SANS Instructor & Fellow and Counter Hack Founder. Ed has taught more than 12,000 cybersecurity professionals how to respond to cyber incidents and advanced penetration testing techniques.
How and when to view and submit questions
We're starting a week starting today, Thursday, October 15th at 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (see other time zones), and we send the event on Zoom. When you're tired of the Zoom meetings, we'll be livestreaming on Twitter too.
If you want to ask any questions in advance that the panel might want to answer, the best thing to do is register for the meeting and queue your question so we can see it. (I'll also keep an eye on the discussion thread of this article for some starter questions.)
We look forward to seeing you there – think of group IT therapy with Ars, and everyone is invited!
