I Gave a Presentation!
Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to give a presentation to Iowa State’s Information Assurance Student Group (IASG). Months ago, when I was meeting with the other IASG cabinet members to decide what we’d all present on, I floated the idea that I could present on physical security. After all, it’s something that I’m very interested in, I enjoy exposing other people to this information, and it’s something that just does not come up in our university’s security curriculum. I was given the green light to talk about physical security, though of course that’s like signing up to give a presentation on “math” or “computers”. It’s a big world, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to focus on. In the end, I decided not to focus on anything for the whole talk, instead running through a handful of topics, concepts, and tools that I personally think are really cool. My hope was to just get a few members of the audience interested enough that they’d go home and research some more of these cool ideas on their own, and based off of the feedback I’ve received since giving the talk I’d say I was successful.
(Also, major shoutout to Deviant Ollam for being a major inspiration for me and a source of media for my slides.)
