#EngineersUnplugged S4|Ep5: Secure the Infrastructure!

November 20, 2013 at 1:10 pm PST

We all know we need it, but no one wants to talk about. Today, we break through that taboo. Secure the Infrastructure! This bold declaration brought to you courtesy of Matthew Brender (@mjbrender) and Mike Foley (@mikefoley) as they talk about how to use a hardening guide, and how to execute security in the real world. This is a great discussion about people, policy, and how not to be "the person who puts 'no' in innovation."

Roll the video:

And it wouldn't be Engineers Unplugged without a unicorn, in this case a security unicorn. Please do not try this at home.
