Rushing to Market: The IoT without Security
An review of two IoT devices I have examined and found security vulnerabilities in (unreleased). The vulnerabilities and general design indicate that the manufacturers had little awareness of cyber security principles, and perhaps rushed them to market without appropriate security review.

How to: Actually attack computers at cafes
The information security industry has claimed that unencrypted WiFi is a bad thing for a long time. This talk looks at the discoveries I made whilst trying to show this in a modern setting. Ultimately, the techniques aren't that new - I show that it is possible to capture NetNTLM hashes when presented with Man-in-the-Middle conditions - however, it turns out it isn't as simple as I first thought. The tool that I coerced into existence as part of this research is freely available online, and I hope that one day further developments can be made on it.

From n00b to 1337: A CTF Story
This talk will be about how CTFs are used in and are apart of the InfoSec culture and how they have helped people like me dive head first into the industry. It will cover personal experiences from CTFs, alongside how they have helped me go from a complete Rookie (who didn't even know how to install Kali!) to Team UK representative for the European Cyber Security Challenge and budding security professional. CTFs are a unique concept, and are not only a great challenge for those in industry - but a fantastic learning tool for those just starting in information security. The versatile use of CTFs allows people from all experiences and backgrounds to come together and share a common ground - which is a concept I will also be talking about.

Mitigating ROP Attacks
Return Oriented Programming (ROP) poses a significant threat to modern day systems as it is able to circumvent both traditional and more modern protection mechanisms such as antivirus, antimalware, Address Space Layout Randomisation (ASLR) and W⊕X/Data Execution Prevention (DEP). Large companies in the world of information technology such as Intel are actively researching ways in which ROP attacks can be mitigated emphasising e importance of research in this area. The talk is on my research to determine if a solution exists without the major caveats of current solutions such as access to source code, disassembly information and runtime overheads. My proposed solution ROPMit successfully mitigates ROP attacks without the caveats of other current research.

Structured analytical techniques for cyber security
Structured analytical techniques are commonplace in the intelligence and security community, but are yet to become commonplace in cyber security. They are designed to ensure that analytical processes are rigorous and free from bias, and that any findings are communicated clearly and accurately to readers. Based on my experience in threat intelligence, and broader cyber security, this talk will present an overview of some commonly used techniques, identify a number of quick wins for applying them to cyber security, and demonstrate the benefits they are able to bring. My aim is that attendees will leave with an appreciation of the importance and mechanics of some basic analytical techniques, and be able to apply these to their work in the field (and in doing so benefit the wider community)

Threat Hunting 101 or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the data
A lot of people new to infosec see the sheer sexiness of red teaming and all the cool and interesting work that goes on within the world of offensive security. I'm here to show that blue teams are bringing sexy back. This intro to threat hunting aims to not only introduce people to the core ideas and concepts behind it, but to also show that blue teaming isn't just staring at dashboards or trawling through logs - it's about having multifaceted skills and flexing those devops muscles as well. I'm also going to be throwing in a short bit of a practical example as well to help show what the full power of a blue team can do.

Information Security - Lessons learnt from Military Intelligence
Currently writing a dissertation for my part-time MSc Information Security on the topic of lessons the security community can take from military intelligence. This is based on my own experiences having come from the intelligence community into the security industry. The talk will focus on how a 360 degree view is necessary and how we need to stop seeing security as a technology problem only. This will be supported by examples of battlefield evaluation and how this can work in industry as well as a federated intelligence sharing model to improve situational awareness and pool resources, without conflict of interest.
