Aftermovie Black Hat Sessions 2018
During the Black Hat Sessions Martin Hols made some amazing photos and we have made an BHS aftermovie and CTF aftermovie which gives a good impression of the day. We would also like to share all presentations of the sessions. Go to the slides and presentation recordings.
We are proud to had Adam Laurie (RFIDIOt, Aperture labs) to give a keynote 'Stop laughing! CYBER Security is cool now!'. For decades we've been relegated to the kitchen at parties, our black t-shirts have excluded us from the best restaurants, and our children described us as "sad geeks" to their friends... But not any more! At last, CYBER is the new COOL! We are finally getting the attention we deserve and the issues we are trumpeting are no longer considered "Science Fiction". But is it enough or we just entering a new phase in the sausage machine of IT Security? After twenty years in the business, Adam Laurie took a walk down memory lane and looked at issues we were dealing with when he first started and issues we're dealing with now. Oh wait! That's the same thing!!!
Adam is a security consultant working the in the field of electronic communications, and a Director of Aperture Labs Ltd. who specialize in reverse engineering of secure embedded systems.
