Job Seeker of Infosec

As a student you asked yourself, “what am I going to do after school?” You read in the news that there are X million of infosec jobs need to be filled by 202X, and the next day you see there are hundreds of infosec people looking for jobs. These information added more pressure and confusion in your goal of finding your first (or dream) job.

Tas will share his experience navigating through the world of infosec as a “job seeker” where he will talk about different key components in a job, steps that you will face during job hunting, and tips and tricks from his experience both as a job seeker or as a hiring party. He will also share how, as a student, you can capture the HR attention and impress the hiring managers. With all of these information, hopefully your first (or next) job hunt will be much easier than Tas’

Can’t wait to see you all there!

Practical Protocol Practice

There are countless networking protocols out in the world – so much that it’s often hard to keep track of! In this segment, Practical Protocol Practice, we take a look at a handful of ports and talk about them! This week will cover Unencrypted vs Encrypted protocols.

It is recommended to have a packet sniffer (i.e. Wireshark) and a Linux VM that you can connect to Telnet, SSH, FTP and SFTP ready.

Defense Evasion: Endpoint Detection & Response

Mature organizations are deploying EDR solutions within their environments; both at scale and in high velocity. While not a replacement to traditional AV, these solutions are far more effective at providing situational awareness and endpoint visibility. EDR often presents material barriers to offensive operators; with increased focus on OPSEC and dynamic detection logic driving behavioural uncertainty. We will analyze the anatomy of EDR implementations and introduce both pragmatic and conceptual approaches to successfully evading these solutions within the context of real-world breach simulation exercises.

NB: This segment will not be recorded/uploaded/streamed to YouTube. So, make sure you tune in live!!

Can’t wait to see @everyone all there!!
