In global security intelligence, it takes not only technical experts to decompose the motives of a hacktivist or an attack, but an un-expected slew of diverse experts who understand underlying human nature, broad political motives and incentives. This talk will help bolster your security posture by engaging the unrecognized security ninjas.
