Description

“Leave your zero days at the door, leave your latest hacks behind AND bring your playbook for the blue team”


Abstract:

We initially approached this by wanting to make the lights along the Western seaboard blink out messages to the ISS (International Space Station) however an hour into the research we realized that was not only possible but also too easy to do. So we’ve decided to tackle something harder…FINDING others who want to send rude messages into space using our electrical grid to accomplish such tasks.

This talk will focus on HOW we stop people, what has to happen to change our perceptions and how we communicate those changes across the internal infrastructure…and out to our vendors, suppliers and partners.

We will examine the attack vectors and what we do about them, we’ll go through some of the more predictive and preventative solutions to aiding in the remediation of the issues AND will try to point out the shortcomings and follies of buying more reactive security equipment.
