The goal of the conference is to bring together hobbyists, IT professionals, government agencies, education and other sectors to discuss the importance of cybersecurity in today’s world. Key focal points of the event are broken down into Offensive, Defensive and Educational topics where participants and guests can come together and learn the latest in technology and how it relates to the current cybersecurity landscape.

Throughout the two-day event, Twinstate will be participating in several events including workshops, demonstrations and as guest speakers. Active in the planning process is Jennifer Allen, Red Team (PAS) Manager at Twinstate Technologies, who will be leading several demonstrations, from basics like Soldering 101 to more offensive workshops on building subversive IoT using ESP8266 with MicroPython as part of the event’s Hardware Hacking Villiage. Jennifer will also be presenting “DIY Spy: Roll-Your-Own Covert Channels with Scapy & Python,” the concept of creating custom covert channels while emphasizing lowering deduction of activity, teaching the tactics used by malicious hackers so that the audience can better understand these methods and improve security countermeasures against them.
