Secrets of Running a Consulting Business

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Consulting, either on the side or full time, is a great way to pick up
cash and have a much better time than sitting in your cube leveling up
in El Diablo while avoiding staff meetings.  But how do you get into
it, and how do avoid failure?  Lots of intel is available on
consulting, but most of it is fluff put out by people just looking to
make a buck.  What's the real deal, and are there some key aspects of
it that make or break the opportunity?  In this education session,
Brian Martin goes over what's worked for him and why, what
specifically needs to be done to get the opportunities, how
meaningless your twitter feed is, and the hidden advantages that make
consulting so much more desirable than an office job.  He'll also talk
about the disadvantages, risks, and hazards so you can make the right
decisions about getting into consulting in INFOSEC.
