That Which Must Not Be Spoken Of: A Personal Look at Mental Health in Infosec

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sullen, Moody, Anti-Social, Awkward, Outcast, Misfits. Our people right? The heart and soul of the people running the internet and technology.  Sadly, it’s killing us, in some cases literally. Yet we still refuse to talk about it. It is more acceptable to say you’re a Windows NT fan then to admit to having mental health issues.

Half of this talk will be a very frank discussion about one person’s journey through several mental health issues and explain some different methods used to cope with that daily battle. The second part of the talk will dig into why we are not hearing more about this in our own community.
