Meeting: 25.01.2017 Written by thehask on January 12, 2017

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2017! This months sponsor is Trend Micro and I am looking forward to seeing Marc Gorelick (Trend Micro Global Security Expert) and Rob Burke (Territory Manager ATLANTIC Canada). The first presentation of the year will be “The Next Tier – 8 Security Predictions for 2017”. I cannot think of a better way to start things and expect another fantastic year for our local community.

Update your calendars with April 27-28th for AtlSecCon 2017! The board has been very active with speaker selection and all things related to the conference. Get ready for some fantatstic talks, the submissions this year are phenomenal and 1st round speakers have already been announced via social media.

Conference and speakers dinner tickets are avialable for purchase online. There are a limited number of speakers dinner tickets so grab one before they sell out, we have some amazing things planned for the evening.

Thank you,
Travis and the AtlSecCon Board.

The Next Tier – 8 Security Predictions for 2017
People waking up to the threat landscape of 2017 will say it is both familiar and unchartered terrain. After all, while our predictions for 2016 have become reality, they only opened doors for more seasoned attackers to explore an even broader attack surface. In 2016, online extortion exploded, a smart device failure indeed caused damage, the need for Data Protection Officers (DPOs) became ever more pressing, and data breaches became as commonplace as ever.

Community:
Lily Chalupowski – Introduction to Reverse Engineering
A talk introducing the tools and concepts to get started in reverse engineering binary files including a demo of cracking and patching an executable.
