DojoSec Wrap-up

Last week Sun Tzu Data offered the first DojoSec minicon event in Columbia, Maryland. The idea came to me earlier this year and with the help of some great friends we made the first event very successful.
DojoSec's purpose is to bring together top Security professionals in the Maryland-DC Corridor for monthly mini conferences. It gives the opportunity for locals to hear from speakers who often appear at major conferences in a familiar setting. The line up included some well known names for two great talks. Chris Daywalt and Eoghan Casey presented a talk on Enterprise Entrenchment.

In short, Enterprise Entrenchment is when attackers maintain footholes in networks and exploit them over extended periods of time. Chris and Eoghan will be presenting this topic at the SANS confererence in Vegas this week. It was nice getting the scoop on this talk.

Johnny Long introduce many to charity he started Hackers for Charity and presented his "No-Tech Hacking" talk. The No-Tech talk was especially relevant since some Johnny's research for the talk and the book was done in the local area. This is why the DojoSec events are great with so many great speakers right here in our "backyard". The next event is scheduled for November 5th.
