9:00 am - Bobby Kuzma, Herjavec Group

STOP HITTING YOURSELF: Preventable things I wish I would stop seeing (and exploiting) when we Red Team

Bobby Kuzma is a security geek and retired IT consultant who accidentally acquired a CISSP at the tender age of 22. If it processes data, he's probably tried to make it do bad things. He teaches, mentors, and explores (and occasionally explodes) technology. Four out of five coworkers agree that it's unsafe to let him get bored. When not spelunking through the infosec underworld, Bobby runs the motley crew of misfits, hackers and pirates doing red team and APT stuff at Herjavec Group (yes, That Herjavec).
