When I attend security events I want to see a more diverse group of attendees. I need to see the people on the front lines; junior and senior systems administrators. I want to see them go back to their organizations and teach others what they have learned.
Are you a team player? I want to challenge all network security professionals to mentor one person. Tell that person to mentor someone. That is the only way we can start to protect our assets. I don't think people understand how bad the situation is in the security space. We need to step up our security game in a major way.
We need to take the knowledge to the audience that needs the message.
