Yesterday I did a SANS @Mic talk where I presented on common security misconceptions. The talk discovers many pits and fallacies we make while consulting ourselves and others within information security. I hope it’s interesting! You can find it here:
I'm Chris Dale from Norway, founder and principal consultant at River Security (https://riversecurity.eu/). Along with my security expertise, I have a background from system development and application management. Having a vast and broad experience in IT certainly help a great deal when working penetration tests and incidents.
I am an open, sharing and engaging person to be around, some even think I'm funny. I am usually enthusiastic and motivating when I work, and usually positive and optimistic about the general problems I encounter. I am passionate about security, both IT and physical security, which is one of the reasons I do a lot of public speaking at different events such as classes, conferences and workshops.
Driven by mottos such as "Magic is just science we don't understand yet" and "Think bad, do good", I attack today's security challenges with eagerness and enthusiasm. I consider myself a pragmatic person, with the ability to think outside the box, keeping the business in focus.
I also teach for SANS. My primary class I am teaching is Hacking Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling. This course prepares you for the GIAC Certification in Incident Handling (GCIH). I find it extremely motivating and fun to teach others the art of security and hacking, and I often find that my passion and enthusiasm rubs off on my students.
