Last weekend information security professionals from around the globe gathered in a conference forum for the 2013 Suits and Spooks Conference in Washington, DC. The focus was on offense as a defensive tactic, often referred to as “active defense”. I was both an attendee and a speaker / panel moderator at the conference. The event was awesome. It featured collaboration and intellectually driven discourse on matters of extreme importance to our industry. Heated discussions seemed to be taking place everywhere –hallways, foyers and of course in the session rooms.
