Information Security (Infosec) suffers from a Rodney Dangerfield “I get no respect” complex. When things are working no one notices, but when all that mess hits the fan the security people get dumped on. The morale of the industry often suffers from this very problem and workers can burn out, causing some of the great talent not to just leave your company but leave the information security industry altogether, causing everyone to suffer.
What if infosec had some sex appeal? At the 2013 RSA Conference in San Francisco I asked attendees this very question. Some already believed infosec was already sexy, and others believed it needed a little injection of “sex.” Watch the video below and see if you agree with some of the serious and not-so-serious answers.
