InfoSec uses Hardening…It’s super effective!
by Alex Kot
Understanding the concept of Hardening is easy. Though you can spend a lot of time figuring out how to do it correctly. There are various tools and best practices to help you out. A lot of it is common sense, though people easily overlook system hardening. I will give examples on both Windows and Linux systems.
Currently works at a Credit Union and has been in information technology for about 10 years. He is fond of modifying embedded devices, low level concepts, and weird science.
The long version of her DEFCON 23 talk, Amanda will be talking about information security fails in a variety of industries including healthcare, education, and ISPs. From surprise viruses, bad cabling, water spouts, and fun with bringing enterprise firewalls to their knees.
Amanda Berlin is currently a Network Security Engineer at Hurricane Labs. She has been working in the IT industry for around 10 years and has worked in both public and private sector as well as spending a decent time in healthcare. She managed the internal phishing campaign at a medium size healthcare facility to promote user education about phishing and hacking through an awards based reporting program. She is a lead organizer for CircleCityCon, volunteers at many other conferences, and enjoys writing and teaching others. Amanda lives at home with her three boys and “Rabbit” the cat.
Don’t forget to come early, starting at 6:00 PM, for pizza and pop.
