Thank you for joining us for our 5th Anniversary celebration! We certainly hope you enjoy the conference. Here’s to Education, Collaboration, and Community!

Remember, we don’t take ourselves too seriously and you shouldn’t, either! To quote the old motto of another collaborative community, "We trick into learning with a laugh".

We wish you both laughter and learning - and lots of both!

Why am I surrounded by friggin' idiots?!? (Because you hired them!)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Let’s face it… Many people have better luck at the craps table that they do hiring the right candidate for their INFOSEC opening. Making matters worse, most of us have come from a purely technical background and don’t know the faintest thing about building our own team. There can be nothing more disheartening than finding out that you've hired the wrong guy, or worse yet, let the *right* one walk away. In this presentation we will discuss strategies for making sure the best new employee makes it in the door. This includes everything from recruiting, prescreening, reviewing resumes, conducting good interviews, and asking tough interview questions. This talk is aimed towards both managers who are tasked with hiring and interviewees who want make sure they are at the top of their game.
