Building Blocks for Building Docs
Alex Hamerstone will speak on the ways that IT Professionals can become more competent and comfortable writing policies, procedures, and related documentation. He will cover how to determine which policies are necessary, how to structure documents, how to store and distribute documentation, and additional areas relevant to documentation.
Well aware that documentation is not always the favorite subject of IT professionals, Hamerstone brings a lighthearted approach to this often stuffy topic.
PowerShell … It’s time to own
David Kennedy and Joshua Kelley will be giving the same talk as presented at Blackhat/Defcon on attack vectors utilizing PowerShell.
Powershell is as close to a programming language we are going to get through a command line interface on Windows. The ability to perform almost any task we want through Windows is a huge benefit for systems administrators… and hackers. During this presentation we’ll be covering the attack vectors you can use with PowerShell and demonstrate some new Metasploit modules that were released at Defcon.
As a consultant in the Risk Management group, Alex Hamerstone has been providing security solutions to companies for close to two years at SecureState, and prior to SecureState has almost a decade of consulting experience around technology implementation as well as business process assessment and development. His work focuses on the business side of security.
During his career, Alex has developed literally thousands of policies and procedures for organizations of many sizes. With a solid understanding of business processes, human resources, finance, security, and technology he is uniquely positioned to provide a great deal of value to any organization.
