[CANCELLED] Easy Wins in InfoSec

There will be no meetup this month


Are you starting your career in information security? Or maybe you've already build an infosec program from the ground up and are ready to move on to the next company and forgot some of the basics? Well this talk is for you, probably. Matt and I have been in the same boat, and we're here to hold your hand as you prove your worth to your new employer. We're giving the talk that we wish we would have seen when we got our foot into the door.

Doug Wilson & Matt Halbeisen

CitiZen Cyber SkillZ for Public Service. And Great Justice…

Love the cyberz, but your netcat skills are closer to butter knife than Swiss Army knife? Love being the packet, but that pre-bitmasking hydration is still a little rusty? Love CTFs, but can’t get to the bank (of coins)? That was me - I was devastated when I realized I’d never be Hax0RtheSkoudis, but I found a way to give back to the community anyway - maybe it’ll work for you!

The State of Michigan has created a Civilian Cyber Corps to address the uneven distribution of cyber need and talent (and to have fun :wink: ). Qualified citizens can be part of a team who will address incidents within the state, initially for local and regional government entities. Applicants must have a basic security certification and pass a criminal background check. Regular training and assessment is provided, and there are ample opportunities to collaborate with peers. The team reports to the State CISO. Training, exercises and response activities are coordinated with the State Police, and the Air and Army National Guard. Other states are now examining this as a model for their initiaties; Come hear why!
