2018 ISACA Information Security & Risk Conference CFP

Hello All. After the success of last year’s conference, we are doing it again. This year is slightly different. The same two day conference will run on October 29-30, 2018 at the Harbourfront Marriott in Halifax. The addition is the day training sessions that we will be running on October 31, 2018. These will be full day, instructor-led, some hands-on training sessions on various topics in cyber security, risk management, etc. Right now we are looking for speakers for both the conference and the training sessions. So if you are interested in submitting your information, please visit http://www.isacaconference.ca

2018 ISACA LA Spring Conference

Hello All. I couldn’t recommend an event more than ISACA Los Angeles’ Spring Conference. This year it is being held from April 14-18, 2018 at the Hilton Universal City. It is truly a great event. Great speakers, great people, great food, etc. I will be teaching a 2 day pre-conference workshop on blue teaming, threat hunting, etc. I hope to see everyone there. Much more fun than boring RSA!!!

29th Annual FIRST Conference

Hello All. I would like to thank the organizers at @firstdotorg for inviting me to the 29th Annual FIRST Conference held between June 11-16, 2017 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I had the opportunity to present twice, once on the best practices related to starting a product security team and the other on using honeypots to detect lateral movement.

Overall, it was a wonderful event. I got to catch up with colleagues from other PSIRTs, learn about the latest research into information security and listen to various industry panels and Q & As, all while in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico.
