Preparing great BBQ requires adherence to certain methods and principles. This is also the case when it comes to designing and deploying security controls. However, in the same way that some cooks ignore those proven techniques and ruin a good cut of meat, IT and security professionals also often fail to follow established best practices when architecting security solutions. This results in vulnerabilities and eventually breaches of those environments. This session will show how we can take lessons from good BBQ techniques and apply them to our security architecture. We'll examine five rules all good pitmasters follow and see how those same rules can form a framework of security defense design that eliminates common pitfalls. By the end of this talk, you'll not only have a clearer vision for improving the defensive posture of your IT systems, you'll also be better equipped to smoke a killer brisket!
