Schedule of Events

 

 

Friday - June 18, 2010 Presenter
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM Unconference registration/ Coffee
10:00 AM- 11:00 AM
Name: Erin Jacobs @SecBarbie
Title: Compliance Crystal Ball – Future trends in risk-based security framework
Abstract:
More often than not organizations structure their internal security framework based almost exclusively upon regulatory and business compliance drivers. Through the discussions and drivers that are occurring in the security community as well as the cross-pollination into the business community, security compliance framework is changing direction. This talk will guide the audience though a history of regulatory compliance focusing on SAS70’s, ISO 2700x, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX, and GLBA. Through this historic analysis, we will extract the known trends and forecast where the future is taking the security compliance landscape.

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Name: Tim Skorick
Title: Browser Extension Malware
Abstract: In an age in which the PC exists almost exclusively for web use whether at work or at home, malware authors no longer have to puzzle how to trojan a computer: the browser offers fewer impediments, has an API that publishes every object they could possible want to hook, and contains the user's entire work and play experience. Add to that varying failures in client-side or enterprise-level controls and you have the perfect breeding ground for a growing species of malware.
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Name: Daniel J. Molina, @DJMolina
Title: Top 10 Ways IT is Enabling Cybercrime
Abstract: Today's IT departments, unbeknownst to themselves, are empowering cybercrime by their own actions. Daniel Molina presents The Top 10 Things that your IT department is doing, that enables cybercrime in your own company.

1:00 PM

2:00 PM

Name: Davi Ottenheimer, @daviottenheimer
Title: Cloudy with a chance of security
Abstract: Virtualized computing continues to evolve and bring both pros and cons (pun not intended) to information security. Everything from access controls to logs and forensics is being forced to adapt as IT resources are migrated from physical to virtual. This presentation gives a comparative analysis of the physical and virtual environments to identify key differentiators and risks. It then proposes several new approaches to meet the challenge of security and compliance for virtual systems, especially in clouds.
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Name: Peter Schawacker @alchemyps
Title: Peter Schawacker- Agile Security, SOC and how Mortman/Hutton ruined my summer vacation
Abstract: This talk is about organizing unmanageable people to accomplish impossible tasks. In it I talk about why traditional project management approaches almost always fail, especially when it comes to security. There's been some discussion of Agile software development, but not so much about its application to other domains. I've been using Agile to build and security operations centers and manage teams of analysts. Think of this as a how-to for effective cat herding, security requirements analysis and managing by not managing.
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Name: Steve Pordon
Title: Defeating High Security Locks: An Overview
Abstract: Intermediate-level overview of how high security locks work, and how to defeat them. Assumes basic lockpicking knowledge and concepts (shear line, tension, etc.), but will include a 2-minute refresher for those who need it. Emphasis will mainly be on high security pin-tumbler locks--ASSA Twin, Medeco Biaxial, Schlage Primus, and similar sidebar locks--with some discussion of disc locks (Abus, Abloy).
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Name: David Willson
Title: When Does Electronic Espionage Become an 'Act of War' and What Options Do Nations Have to Defend Their Networks?
Abstract: This presentation will be a combination of my two articles published in the ISSA Journal last August 2009 and this June 2010. I will discuss current cyber threats, how nations have reacted to them, or not, the types of threats, where the line might be drawn between electronic espionage/cyber crime and “acts of war,” the significant challenges nations face, and potential solutions. I will also discuss some more practical security solutions for business to reach beyond their networks to create a greater security posture.
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM Panel Discussion: Infosec- Looking Towards the Future
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Name: Jamey Heary

Title: Sneak Peek at PCI 2.0 Changes

Abstract: Learn about how PCI works behind the scenes, PCI Proposed Changes for October, PCI Virtualization SIG Update, PCI and Cloud Services, New Guidance on Audio Recordings.

Is there an offical BSIDESDEN Hotel?

Jerry- we'll look into it.

I signed up for a talk, but I'm not sure how long a presentation I should prepare for. Is it safe to assume the one-hour blocks shown in the table above are accurate?

jobo said

at 11:19 pm on May 11, 2010

Great question Steve. Plan on a 45 min presentation, with a bit of room for Q&A and between talk breaks.

jobo said

at 11:04 am on May 12, 2010

An in-process lesson learned for future B-Sides event coordinators: While Eventbrite and other social media sites such as LinkedIn have some nice features to announce an event, both have limitations. In the case of Eventbrite the community is unable to see who has registered which is a bummer because some neat BSidesers have signed up that way. LinkedIn provides an easy way to track attendees, but doesn't support limiting the number of attendees (we've only got so much room available so attendance needs to be limited to no more than100 participants). So, until a new medium can be found to meet the objectives of both, we're requesting those that the 20+ folks who have signed up through Eventbrite and Linkedin to kick it old school and use the participants section found within the BSidesDenver page.

For those interested in presenting, we're still looking for speakers who have a passion for sharing innovating ideas about where our industry is headed and what challenges we'll face.

Now that date draws closer, expect to see more frequent info and forthcoming announcements re BSidesDen!

Big thanks to IOActive for sponsoring BBQ from the Breckenridge Brewery!

I'd like to be added to the participants section, but it is not editable.
Can you add me Jamey Heary [email protected] ?

jobo said

Folks- at the excellent recommendation of Nickerson, we're moving the event to the day prior, Friday, June 18th.

Jamey- done, and thanks for the offer of wifi gear!

A lot of folks have pinged us about presenting, please use the CFP page to post your abstract as we will be announcing speakers soon!

Big thanks to Kaspersky Lab for stepping up with a sponsorship to support BSides Denver!

Do we know what type of equipment will be available to presenters? And are these going to be videotaped or should I bring my own camera?

jobo said

at 4:35 pm on Jun 11, 2010

Steve, presenters will have access to a projector/mic for the larger room. We're working on video solutions but if you or others can bring something, that'd be great.

Any volunteers for bringing/manning cameras for live streaming, PLEASE STAND UP!!

Steve Pordon said

at 9:05 pm on Jun 11, 2010

Thanks, jobo. I knew there would be a projector, but I was unclear on the type. Is this projector of the type that I can plug my laptop into, or did we get the ghetto overhead/transparency type? :)

jobo said

at 2:58 pm on Jun 12, 2010

Hey Steve, it's a standard DLP projector with both an hdmi and vga interface.

PJ Torney said

at 3:57 pm on Jun 12, 2010

I have video equipment to record the event and the capability to put it up on uStream. Let me know what you need.

Steve Pordon said

at 6:10 pm on Jun 12, 2010

Excellent, thanks.

jobo said

at 12:17 pm on Jun 16, 2010

Big thanks to SANS Institute for picking up coffee/bagels!!

Steve Pordon said

at 5:18 pm on Jun 20, 2010

Thanks for recording, PJ. Will the video be available anywhere? I missed the last two talks.
