October 2020 – Defense Against the Dark Arts
Our October meeting will be a joint event with the Roanoke-Blacksburg Technology Council. As this is a special event, please note the special date and time and that registration is required.
We work tirelessly to bring you a variety of InfoSec content every month. We talk about blue team, identity management, SIEM, and even legal issues. But we know….we know it’s the dark arts you fancy. This month we’re teaming up with our friends at the Roanoke-Blacksburg Technology Council to bring you a double benny: deep technical content presented by local talent!
Black Hills Security – 30 Things to Get You Started
Many new RISE attendees ask how they can get started in InfoSec. Where do I start? What skills do I need. How can I learn new skills? Black Hills InfoSec posted a fantastic curated list of “30 Things to Get You Started”. It covers a variety of areas from log analysis, password cracking, hardware hacking, and more. Content includes blog posts and video to satisfy all types of learners.
It only takes initiative and a few minutes a day to sharpen your skills. RISE can help pair you with the people and tools – all you need to provide is the desire and effort!
May 2019 – Sniffing Active Directory with Bloodhound
Many organizations, large and small, maintain an Active Directory environment. Over time even well-managed AD environments will suffer the crud of forgotten objects. Emergency changes and other unique additions often create resources that don’t follow established governance policy. Coping with system sprawl is a fact of life in most organizations. Our tools must help us cope with this and ensure that unintended vulnerabilities are introduced into the environment.
