The RSA conference starts next week and lets be honest it is becoming known as a stuffy management conference with very little useful technical information but if you know where to look you can take some deep dives. I have put together a quick guide of some amazing talks and events I am looking forward to.
BSidesSF – Coming into town a few days early just to attend this conference. There is so much good stuff on the schedule but I do not want to miss the Advanced Internet dataset combinations for #ThreatHunting & Attack Prediction talk.
Google Cloud Talks – If you have cloud “stuff” in your company you need to swing by and catching some of these talks. I am really looking forward to the Container Security Panel and while not technical Humanising DDoS: the technical and emotional impact of large-scale attacks on an organisation looks ridiculously intriguing.
IOActive – IOActive always does an amazing job with their IOASIS and talks. I am really looking forward to the Implementing Inexpensive Honeytrap Techniques and the Hardcore Cloud Forensics talks.
DevOOPS: Attacks and Defenses for DevOps Toolchains – This talk by Ken and Chris is the one RSA talk I will not miss.
I ♥ Cisco Umbrella Soirée – My friends at OpenDNS always do an amazing job with their RSA party and I cant wait to see what they do on Valentines day with 20,000 geeks stuck in San Francisco.
Forescout – One, two, three and to the
@ForeScout Snoop Doggy Dogg is at the door Ready to make an entrance so back on up. Snoop provided the soundtrack to my 7th grade basketball team and I am really looking forward to seeing him in person.
Tenable -Tenable is having an 80’s party on Sunday and to quote Jay-Z:
Wanna bring the 80’s back?
That’s okay with me, that’s where they made me at.
BJJ Smackdown – For $50 you can be punched in the face by Jeremiah Grossman and maybe pickup some BJJ skills.
Rsaparties.io – Has a list of about 500 more parties you can attend.
If I am missing something I should be at or if you want to say hi next week you can catch me on twitter at @jgamblin.
