I’m getting to talk to a lot of interesting people from parts of our industry that I might never have had access to before, thanks to the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams. This week’s example is Jeff Carpenter the technical manager at the CERT Coordination Center. Jeff is also one of the people responsible for organizing this year’s FIRST Best Practices Contest. This year the topic is Detect, which is a topic near and dear to Jeff’s heart, since that’s a large part of what he does in his day to day life. We talk about last year’s contest, what’s going to be happening at the event in June and what it’s like to work at one of the oldest CERT teams.
The deadline for submissions to the FIRST Best Practices Contest 2009 has been moved to May 11, 2009. It’s $5000 for first prize, so if you have a paper you think might be worthy, take the time to enter.
