Finding Your Way in the Dark: Information security from first principles

A 30-minute talk given at the 2017 NSF Cybersecurity Summit introducing the Information Security Practice Principles, a model for better communication and teaching of information security, better decision-making, and better practice.

The slides from this presentation are available in several formats1:

  • Visiting the slides on will allow you to view or play the deck online, or fork to your own account to edit in its original format.
  • I dumped a PDF copy of the slides for those who need it.
