Paul Asadoorian

Come along on a fantastic voyage and learn Hip Hip and how it relates to information security! When I was growing up there were two things that intrigued me, computers and rap music. Using examples from my favorite genre or music, we’ll explore some interesting facets of rap music, and discuss the lessons and parallels to security today. There will be no half steppin’. It will be dope as it allows us to dig into topics such as:

  • Is security a fad? How do we differentiate a fad from something here to stay?
  • Encouraging youth to become security engineers, a call-to-action for the community
  • Deviating from established norms and setting trends, few truly change the industry, and who will change the security industry in the near future?
  • Remembering those who have passed on and learning from their work
  • How true experts practice their craft (and how to best utilize their skills and share the knowledge)
  • Few things are truly original (and it’s okay, in most cases)
  • Not all legends reach the same pinnacle of success. What separates the best from the rest?
  • How experts make career pivots, and actually pull it off
  • New isn’t always better
  • We all have beefs (and better ways to resolve them. And no, we’re not going to dig into social media beefs)
