The SANS NetWars coin finally arrived (Defensible Security Architecture - NetWars highest team score)
This was my first time attending a SANS class. I really liked the location of the venue. The training took place in Prague, in the Czech Republic. I was attending the Defensible Security Architecture class. The quality of the class content was pretty good. I can understand why people have been praising SANS. At the end of the class everyone was split up into groups and played NetWars. My team (AlphaTEAM) consisted of myself and three other people; we got the most points and will receive a NetWars Coin :-)
I just finished a four-day intensive course on Advanced Tool Development with SMT Solvers and I must say it exceeded my expectations. It’s a class taught by Vertex Re / @seanhn. Sean Heelan is an excellent trainer, the class is well constructed and the exercises are very practical. It’s a fast paced class and there are plenty of exercises.
There was a book review of my recently published book Rethinking IT Security. What needs to be said. How can we solve the IT security problem long term? in the Icelandic Computer Societies journal this November.
This year is the second time I’ve performed security assessment of all government websites in Iceland. Two years ago was the first time when I was contracted by the Ministry of the Interior in Iceland to do so. A report on each website was sent to the webmasters of each website with identified security vulnerabilities with instructions on how to fix the identified risks. This year is the second time I perform this assessment, and it’s really enjoyable to see all the results, which have been achieved since the first assessment.
I recently gave a talk at a conference in Iceland before 150+ middle and top management where as a part of my talk I explained what SQL injection is and how to protect against it. I didn’t think much of it until after the talk when multiple people thanked me for explaining SQL injection in such an understandable way. The compliments I got inspired me to make this quick write up. I hope this will be useful to other people.
After taking the SexViaHex class at BlackHat which I was so highly impressed with, I was interested in taking the Practical ARM Explotation class, Xipiter offers, as well. I was happy to see Xipiter offering both classes jointly in Zurich, so I decided to attend the class.
It’s safe to say that one of my highlights this year at BlackHat / Defcon was the nologin / uninformed meet up. Many of whom I haven’t met in real life for over a decade.
