Securi-Tay 2

Spent January 16th up in Dundee, at the University of Abertay, at Securi-Tay 2. It was a very well run conference - it was organised by students on the Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures course, but was better organised than some professional conferences I have been to.

I saw some excellent speakers, and gave a talk on career planning in information security, so mine was by far the least technical talk there. Once the video is up online I will add in a link here...I was going to attach slides but it seems this blog software doesn't understand attachments that aren't pictures or video.

Highlights for me:

  • Graham Sutherland's talk on attacking office hardware ranged from simple and relatively harmless, to pretty hardcore hacking via chip removal and analysis. Excellent fun.
  • Nick Walker's talk on Android Security Assessments, while slightly too technical for me, was very interesting, and reminded me to pop Cyanogenmod on my Galaxy S3 this weekend.
  • The" Rory track" - of the two lecture theatres, one had 3 Rorys presenting, which just goes to confirm one of the Memes of Meta...

Security Stack Exchange managed to supply me with a few T-shirts, pens and stickers so quite a few speakers presented their talks wearing them, which was nice :-)

And the good folks at Securi-Tay kindly donated this bright red t-shirt to my con swag collection.

The country even requested for debt relief as part of
the Heavily Indebted Bad Nations plan in 2010. It begins with the
letters and telephone phone calls. The IMF said that Zimbabwe was under financial debt tension.
