Agenda:

“Shooting Phish in a Barrel and other terrible fish related puns”
by Amanda Berlin

Repetition is a proven successful way to bridge the gap of compliance, teaching our users real life skills, and helping secure the infrastructure that we are responsible for protecting. This is best implemented with a comprehensive hands-on security phishing and awareness rewards program. A full program design will provide a maturity that the CBTs have not. While they are a good value add and can be used to reinforce the real life scenarios, relying on them as a primary means of security awareness training will not provide the value or insight to the first line of defense. By consistently reinforcing the CBTs with a custom built awareness program you increase the end user’s skills and boost the organization’s immunity to phishing and social engineering threat factors.
We all know that the end user is the weakest link. With all the talk around how broken user education is. I’ll be going over the user education by phishing and rewards program I put into place in an enterprise environment.
Tracked Metrics:
  1. users targeted
  2. users sucessfully phished
  3. phishes reported
I’ll share what I did, learned, screwed up, and would change.

Amanda Berlin is currently a Network Security Engineer at Hurricane Labs.

Flourishing in a Hostile Work Environment
by Dennis

Abstract:
This is a tale of Dennis’ first real job, as a penetration tester, at a company that is so into security that even the employees must maintain their own defenses… against each other. The story goes from his first day on the job, when he caught a system administrator adding a backdoor before his OS was even finished installing, to the entire office environment becoming a miniature version of threat models that clients would be facing in the real world every day (but probably worse). This presentation covers the attacks Dennis has successfully used against his co-workers and the defenses he has employed to protect himself.

Explanation:
The presentation will include: the attacks Dennis has used to break into his co-workers (both successfully and unsuccessfully) as well as the defenses he has put in place. The nature of these attacks almost always relies on social engineering.

Dennis will be releasing the source code of all attacks/defenses that he has developed. He will also go into detail on his unique Linux setup (both its strengths and weaknesses).

What Makes This Interesting?
The subtext of this talk is the policy of Dennis’ employer (the one who allows the office mayhem to continue). It provides a unique way to inspire creativity and ensure that ALL measures are taken to secure a system. It also gives employees an avenue to learn new attacks/defenses that one might not see in your average pentest.
