This webinar will look at the importance of aptitudes and attitudes as indicators and prerequisites for a successful data science career. We will not focus much on technical skills, since (as some experts say) skills can be taught, but aptitudes and passion are either natural characteristics within the individual or else dispositions to success that are inspired by leaders and teachers. The "seven C's" is a reference to the "seven seas" that have inspired explorers, scientists, and other humans for centuries to embark on many voyages of discovery. Similarly, data scientists explore vast and endless seas of data for new insights, new knowledge, and new understanding. The "seven C's" also refer to the seven (actually, 12) qualities (aptitudes and attitudes) of successful data scientists, all of which begin with the letter "C", including curious, creative, continuous life-long learner, plus other core characteristics! Join the webinar to learn more. Come for the data. Stay for the science.

*This webinar is worth 1 CEU for the following CompTIA certifications until 2/5/2020: A+, Network+, Security+, Cloud+, PenTest+, CySA+ and CASP.*

Code is now running on just about everything. Threats from around the world, would like to damage our data, reputation, finances, and more. As such, we need to be as secure as possible. There’s lots of arrows to that quiver. One of them is application security. But more broadly we need to look at the whole product and ecosystem. We need to find security bugs in the products and systems we build, before bad actors do. In this presentation, cyber expert, Dr. DeMott, will walk us through the process of how developers and security pros should be conducting product pentests, to make sure IoT and other products are safe for us all. The steps, the tools, the wars stories, the experience: hope to see you there!

Dr. Jared DeMott is an information security expert. He’s the founder of VDA Labs, and previously served as a vulnerability analyst with the NSA. He holds a PhD from Michigan State University. He regularly speaks on vulnerabilities at conferences like RSA, DerbyCon, BlackHat, ToorCon, GrrCon, HITB, etc. He was a finalist in Microsoft’s BlueHat prize contest, which helped make Microsoft customers more secure. Dr. DeMott has been on three winning Defcon capture-the-flag teams, and has been an invited lecturer at prestigious institutions such as the United States Military Academy.
