Woo! First time going to a BSides conference was a success. Other than the coffee…Oh the coffee

Bad Coffee

I got to spend a ton of time getting to know some of the people working in InfoSec in the area. The talks were great so good work to everyone who gave a talk!

Sorry if I missed your Twitter handle! Let me know and I’ll add it.

“The Infosec Goat” - @ar4v3n
Michael Collins - @h3mlock

For a complete list of the talks visit the schedule.

One of my favorite talks given was Hacking is Dead, Long Live Hacking by Michael Collins. It was interesting to hear from someone I would consider a veteran in InfoSec talk about their journey through the world of InfoSec. Their talk covered the changing landscape of hacking over the years and how automation, new technology, etc. has made it more difficult than it once was but at the same time has not killed hacking all together. They also gave one of my favorite demos on Wardialing that would have made even David, Matthew Broderick, proud. You can see information on the talk here.

Overall, it was an incredible first experience and I cannot wait until next year! You can follow @bsidesSTL for more information and videos from the conference. Let them know I sent you!

Hack the planet!
