    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...

    Welcome to the April 2019 DEFCON 201 Meet Up!

    This day, we plan to do something special and unexpected. On this day, the day of the full moon, we will detox from the digital ruckus — close our laptops, turn off the TV, and leave our phones at home (or in pocket) for a whole 24 hours. For one day, we free our inundated minds from digital distractions. Recalibrate your relationship to tech. It’s time to prepare for the imminent moon days by decluttering your mental environment.

    #Moonstruck is the new day of reckoning in a distracted world.

    No digital. No screens. All analog.

    Welcome to the Real World.

    Also, we are trying out a new venue! (Third Times the charm)
