ART INTO SCIENCE IS A CONFERENCE ON DEFENSE, ORGANIZED BY DEFENDERS.
Many conferences out there glorify the attacker, we want a conference which interests us.
Push the art to a science: Creating a professional discipline
To mature our practice, we need to be able to share our methodologies in a systematic and consistent way.
We have many professionals in the security industry, but do not have a professional discipline. We'd like to philosophically discuss concepts in security, push them forward, and model them.
Glorify the defense: Tools, techniques, and ideas people can leave the conference with and implement
Security conferences glorify the attacker, and accept attack-oriented talks. We'd like to put defense on a pedestal and take in talks that interest us - operational talks on defense.
As a field, we need practitioners to offer implementable ideas and or reference implementations to reduce the amount of work that someone has to do to implement what they learn.
ACOD IS A WORKING CONFERENCE
In the "Glorify the defense" (operations) track we will have talks of interest on various investigations and case studies on the one hands, and tools and ideas used to defend our environments on the other.
The "Push the art into a science" (philosophy) track will be dedicated to working tracks, where the members introduce their own concepts, and then discuss specifics. Most importantly, finish the day with a summary that can be used to push our field into the future.
We want to get more out of ACoD: Often, the best value we as attendees get out of a conference is personal relationships that form. We'd like to do our generate more of this value.
Some of us are introverts, some are shy. Regardless, it is hard to meet too many people in conferences, and see how we can help each other. We will work to address this by building more discussion into the agenda, such as networking opportunities, small working groups, and other similar ideas, into the DNA of how the conference will run.
Hands On / Roll Up the Sleeves
