Hypocritical Security Conference Organizers
Every once in a while, I receive spam for security conferences of which I’ve never heard, even less attended. Typically the organizers of these conferences are faculty members, professors, or government agency employees who should know better than hire companies to spam for them. I suppose that hiring a third party provides plausible deniability. It’s hypocritical. To be fair, I once received an apology for a spamming, which demonstrated that those involved understood integrity.
It’s true that it’s only a minor annoyance. But, if you can’t trust someone for small things, should you trust them for important ones?
