44CON 2014 - What Did You Just Say To Me?, Jerry Gamblin Imagine you have to explain a newly discovered vulnerability in the human resources software your company uses to the director of human resources who forgets his password 3 times a week. How would you approach that talk? It takes many skills to be an effective security professional but arguably the most important trait for a security professional is the ability to communicate effectively. In this talk we will discuss the best methods to explain complex security issues with non-technical people and I will share the tools and tips I have used to become better at this.
