In this short opening keynote we’ll look at 3rd party data-breaches, in fact we’ll look at a lot of them and the impact they have. Too many
incident responders in the infosec industry seem to think that the problem of their user’s credentials being leaked is just a password-reset from resolution, and on a case-by-case basis that might make some sense, conventionally 😉

This talk looks at what happens when you look at 3rd party data-breaches as a ever growing heterogeneous data-set, and how painful that can be.
