OWASP AppSec California 2016 – Postcards from the Total Perspective Vortex – Alex Gantman

15 years in the product security group of a large corporation leaves one with deep appreciation and respect for the complexity of the universe. Complexity rules everything around us — technology, business ecosystem, corporate culture. To succeed in our line of work one must be able to navigate this complexity, to pierce through the layers of abstraction, through the PowerPoint veils, through the air gaps, and to emerge undaunted by it and make progress in spite of it.
In this talk I will offer some glimpses of what I have seen in the Total Perspective Vortex over the last decade and a half, along with survival strategies and coping mechanisms.
