Building a Home Lab πŸ”¬

Do you want to build a home lab? Let’s talk about labs, equipment, options, and benefits. Labs can get expensive and a bit crazy (https://www.reddit.com/r/homelab/). Labs are not meant to be holistic, they serve a purpose to learn a specific skill set so we will see how we can match our lab build to our skills.

We hope to see you all there! πŸ˜„

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 there!
