In addition to sitting on the Board of Directors of The Open Organisation Of Lockpickers (TOOOL), a non-profit group dedicated to academic and hobbyist endeavors into lock research and locksport, Deviant’s company The CORE Group performs physical penetration testing and security training services. Think of the movie “Sneakers”… yeah, they do that. With the portly charm of Dan Aykroyd, the steely eyes of Sidney Poitier, and the suave cunning of Robert Redford, all rolled into one, Deviant and his team can help you identify flaws in your security posture. Don’t be surprised if they ask to move the location of your first meeting to the server room… as location from which they are likely to be calling. 🙂
Deviant will be presenting his session Physical Security on the Front Lines at this year’s Secure360 Conference.
What do you hope that the audience will walk away understanding from your session?
The ability to think tactically about physical security and thus a greater means of making decisions which have a direct impact on their bottom line and security posture. If you can at the very least eliminate the low-hanging fruit and then prioritize your list of addressable items which remain, you’ll be light years ahead of your competition in terms of keeping unauthorized persons out of your facility.
What’s the favorite technology that you use on a daily basis?
A ruggedized Android smartphone running a custom ROM by Cyanogen which allows for massive control of permissions and device functionality… effectively bashing Google over the head with a privacy-conscious bat.
