    Welcome to the August 2019 DEFCON 201 Meet Up!

    Hacker Summer Camp in 2019 has ended. BSides LV had an amazing first CISO line up, Black Hat USA has the most sexism a modern hacker convention can get, and DEFCON 27 absolutely rocked with new villages, lots of lost and found items, shuttle buses breaking down and raising funds for breast cancer at the first ever b00bcon.

    If you survived that crazy week, come to our meeting to tell your tale and show off your swag! If you didn’t come down, this will be the calm before the storm for Fall 2019 so bring that project you have been working on since Bitcoin Cash forked (again) and work on it with fellow tech heads!

    Welcome to the a Special June 2019 DEFCON 201 Meet Up!

    Hacking is incredibly gay. Very gay. Heck, the earliest hackers coded on machines who had rainbows as their logos is how gay things were even back then. So we are going to take out time a day before our usual meet up to honor and celebrate those hackers and tinkerers who just happen to be part of the LGBTQ+ community.

    After we mingle and learn, we will go and party at our local club Six 26 to see if we can convert some frogs to our organization!

    NOTE, we are still going to have the usual meet up the day after! A link will be posted here if you want to read details about that meet up: TBA

    BLACK HAT WEBINAR — The Importance of Logs: You Won’t See What You Don’t Log

    :..>As a Team, Cisco’s CX EMEAR Security Architecture team sees an awful lot of customer sites and systems where logging is either unconfigured or where it is configured in an inappropriate fashion.

    In our experience, we find issues relating to this in over 50% of assessment engagements which climbs still further for engagements where we’re asked to actively deliver our incident response capabilities. It’s not often talked about but effective logging is a key control both to give the blue team visibility of the network they’re defending and to enable accurate analysis in the event of an incident. This talk will cover:

    • Why logging goes wrong
    • How to start to plan your logging requirements
    • Case studies
    • Where to go next

    :..>Bio: Tim (Wadhwa-) Brown joined Cisco as part of their acquisition of Portcullis for whom he worked for almost 12 years. He is equally happy performing white box assessments with access to source code or where necessary diving into proprietary binaries and protocols using reverse engineering methodologies. Tim has contributed to a number of Cisco’s bespoke methodologies covering subjects as diverse as secure development, host hardening, risk and compliance, ERP and SCADA. In 2016–2017, Tim looked at targets as varied as Active Directory, z/OS mainframes, power stations, cars, banking middleware and enterprise SAP Landscapes. Outside of the customer driven realm of information assurance, Tim is also a prolific researcher...
