As summer continues, Twinsate Technologies is sending representatives to yet another cyber-related event, this time at Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas. Def Con which started in 1993 is a conference created out of love for hacking. IT professionals, ethical hackers, and hobbyists alike flock to Def Con each year.
Taking place from July 27th – 30th, Def Con will host everything from presentations, workshops, demonstrations, guest speakers and more. Twinstate Technologies’ very own Jennifer Allen, Red Team and PAS Manager, will personally be involved with the event’s BioHacking Village where topics such as Health as a Service, Psychoactive Chemicals in Combat, Ethical Implications of BioHacking and more will be discussed; and the Darknet Contest. Other villages include a Hardware Hacking Villiage, Crypto & Privacy Village, IoT Village and Social Engineering just to name a few.
Jennifer Allen is involved with several similar events held across the US each year with her most reason at ANYCon in Albany, NY. Opportunities like this offer Allen to not only be actively involved with the latest in ethical hacking but a chance to network and learn what new technique and technologies are being developed. Brushing up on these techniques and continuing to develop her skill set allows Allen to bring back what she has learned and apply it to real-world scenarios while working with Twinstate customers to improve their cybersecurity.
In addition to providing four days worth of exciting demonstrations and workshops, Def Con has also booked several musical acts Thursday, Friday and Saturday night to entertain what is anticipated to be a 15,000 – 19,000 person event.
With Def Con not quite 25 years old, it has gained an impressive following of some of the worlds most talented hackers and hobbyists who are pushing technology to the limits. These advances and discoveries are without a doubt paving the way for what we will see in our everyday lives in the years to come.
