That's not what you want to hear walking off stage. 

ZD Net explains:

Salesforce has fired its director of offensive security and another senior staff member after they gave a talk at the Defcon security conference talk in Las Vegas last month.

Josh Schwartz, director of offensive security based in San Francisco, and John Cramb, senior offensive security engineer in Sydney, Australia, worked on the cloud giant's security "red team," which launches offensive attacks against the company from within to test its cyber posture and defenses.

But the two were fired "as soon as they got off stage" by a senior Salesforce executive, according to one of several people who witnessed the firing and offered their accounts.
