Ever wonder what your assessor is really thinking?  Here you will be offered a rare glance into the mind of one such assessor.  Journey through the laughter, the tears, the frustrations,  the burying of bodies, and hiding of evidence.

With over 10 years of experience in information security, Michelle K. has had 5 years of experiance performing information security assessments using various standards such as: NIST, HIPAA, ISO17799:27002, & PCI DSS.  She’s also had several years of developing security strategies for organizations in various industries.  Currently, Michelle is a security architect/consultant developing the security strategy of her organization with security solutions/initiatives based on risk and business need.  For the past 5 years she was also the president of the Dallas NAISG Chapter (http://dallas.naisg.org/Default.asp) and coordinated an annual information security conference ( BSidesDFW ) for the DFW area. She’s @klingerock on Twitter.

Disclaimer: I do not speak for all infosec assessors, neither good nor bad.  These are my own thoughts based on my own experiences.
