Shmoocon 2009

I’m at Shmoocon 5 this weekend. Its my third time down there (missed 1 and 3). Always a good time.
This year’s event has 1500 attendees, 40% larger than last year. 30ish talks chosen from 100 submitted.
The opening remarks kind of paralleled what I’ve been thinking lately. The stakes are high. Yet any sort of targeted attack has a great chance of succeeding. Many of our defenses are the same layer repeated. “We’ve built a Maginot line…in depth.”
