The Next HOPE (2010): "Keeping Your Job While Being a Hacker" (DVD)
Friday, July 16, 2010: 5:00 pm (Tesla): Hackers are curious above all other things. While we all think this trait should be rewarded (or at least not punished so much), sometimes employers don't agree. As a lawyer, Alex Muentz has had more phone calls than he'd like from employees who were fired once they reported a security hole -- or even showed an interest in hacking. This talk will discuss a few case studies, U.S. law, and some recommendations on how to protect your job while remaining an active hacker (or merely a curious person).
