This past Tuesday, I presented my Blue Team Starter Kit talk, that I will be presenting at BSides Augusta (September 12) and DerbyCon (September 24-27) next month. It was a good chat with some good interaction and trolling. I've got a lot of work to do on refining the talk, which was why I wanted to present it at ColaSec as a warmup for the big security conferences.
I will be presenting on Blue Team track 1 at 5 p.m. for BSides Augusta and I will be presenting Friday in the Stable talk track at 1:30 p.m. for DerbyCon. I'm super excited to be presenting at both conferences and look forward to catching up with people I know, as well as meeting some new people.
We had a lot of new faces at this weeks meetup, which is always nice to see. Building relationships and strengthening the infosec community in Columbia, SC, is something I am really excited about and look forward to each month.
Finally, we are helping ITology find speakers for their Trends 2015 conference this October. Details are below:

What is Trends?
An IT-oLogy (www.it-ology.org) hosted annual conference focusing on technology issues and topics that are “trending” nationally as well as regionally/locally. Basically, it heightens awareness around issues that will impact the future of IT-oLogy partners, the local and regional community, and South Carolina in a big way. The conference is kicked off by a presentation from a Gartner analyst.
This year’s topic is the overall digital transformation taking place in society (everything is becoming ‘digital’) and the associated security issues that come along with it.
Trends will take place Wednesday, October 28 fro 9:00 am to 4:30 pm EST at IT-oLogy, 1301 Gervais Street, Columbia, SC 29201.
Call for Speakers:
The 2015 Call for Speakers is now open. We’re looking for talks in the following areas:
A massive “digital transformation” is taking place in society and the pace is only accelerating. Industries, as well as organizations and individuals, are being impacted in ways never imagined. What are examples of this transformation? How is it having an impact? Why is it important?
Security, specific to the following areas:
• C level/Executive – security issues impacting executives at all levels (decision makers). Those topics executives should be aware of and know about.
• Technologists – issues impacting those at a hands-on technical level. Target audience here will be technologists.
• Citizen 101 – issues impacting everyday citizens. Things they should be aware of. Examples might include a very basic overview of how to encrypt email and/or attachments (most don’t have a clue), why changing passwords often is a must-do (and how to keep up with all those passwords), and other like issues.
