This week many people are at RSAC for the week gaining knowledge and a ton of vendor swag.
Believe me when I say I am not bitter about not being there. But watching from the sidelines got me thinking... What if we took all the time and resources we spend on conferences and put them into security improvements?
What would that look like? Well, surely you've been to working meetings where everyone brings their gear and talents and you collaborate on tasks. Sometimes this doesn't happen until a "crash team" is needed. Other times it more proactive.
Food for thought.
