Cyber Snake Oil

Many high-tech areas are rife for egregious claims where reality cannot possibly live up to the hype. Cyber security is one of these that is especially vulnerable to this. As Bruce Schneier once stated that security appears like black magic to the uninitiated, it appears complex and untenable to many. This talk will delve into a few common examples and approaches to try and reground evaluating cyber security solutions.
