"Bridging the Gap Between Academia and Industry"
Getting information in and out of the academic sphere can be a daunting task. The current state of academic knowledge sharing is hidden behind paywalls, has severe lag, and can come at great personal cost. This presentation analyzes the state of academic information spread, specifically in information security, and provides ways to access that information safely and easily so you can learn, be inspired, and do some science.
