ISC2 Twin Cities Chapter (February 15, 2018) - "Pentesting 101: No Hoodie Required"

I'm looking forward to do a pentesting primer with the ISC2 Twin Cities chapter.  This talk will be based on the Pentesting 101: No Hoodie Required talk that I did for the Secure360 conference in May, 2017 (details below).  


    

    

GTS Educational Events (December 5-7, 2017) - "Blue Team on a budget"

According to the Web site, this government IT symposium "brings together over 1,000 IT leaders and professionals from across the spectrum of government agencies and systems...for three days of engagement, inspiration and information."

I'll be doing a talk based on the ILTACON "Your Perimeter Will Be Breached" presentation that focuses on 10 things you can do for free/cheap in your network today to greatly increase its security posture.


WBA Secur-I.T. Conference (September 26-27, 2017) - "Hacked in 15 seconds"

Session description:

15 seconds is all an attacker needs to steal your sensitive information from any workstation.  Attendees will participate in an interactive demonstration while learning about:

  • Inconspicuous USB devices attackers use to create hidden backdoors into your network
     
  • Common ways attackers quickly capture passwords and other sensitive data without your knowledge
     
  • Tips for securing your network against such unscrupulous attacks


ILTACON (AUGUST, 2017) - "YOUR PERIMETER WILL BE BREACHED"

At the ILTACON conference I did a session that focused on 10 tips/tricks/tools/scripts for detecting and responding to suspicious network activity, as well as hardening an environment to better protect it from future attacks.

The super talented folks at Filament created illustrations of some of the ILTACON talks - I was fortunate to have an artist at my session.  Check out this super creative work (use arrow keys to move left and right)!

metropolitan state university (june, 2017) - "Pentesting 101: no hoodie required!"

I had the fun opportunity to speak to some cybersecurity students about getting started in penetration testing.


SECURe360 (may, 2017) - "Pentesting 101: no hoodie required!"

I spoke at the Secure360 conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The talk was aimed to give nerds like me - as well as regular human people - some insight into the fundamentals of pentesting.  The PowerPoint presentation had an Arnold Schwarzenegger / Terminator 2 theme :-)
