This week Wolfgang and Chris talk to a guy from a Galaxy Far Far Away, from a Long Time Ago. Kellman Meghu. Kellman’s talk is “How NOT to do security: Lessons learned from the Galactic Empire.”

It is geeky, there is security gold in there. Lots of fun. He also likes to have conversations about it after the talk.

Abstract: An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the Galactic Empire security policy. This presentation seeks to conduct a post-mortem on the data security policy implemented during the events that led to the destruction of critical technology needed by the Empire for continued operational efficiencies. A history of the company, as well as a detailed look at the events that followed, provides a great working analysis that can be applied to your policy in hopes of avoiding the same fate. Learning from past mistakes, let’s ensure we are not doomed to repeat them, and potentially, suffer a similar fate.
