SecDSM, a monthly meetup providing the opportunity to network with other InfoSec pros and listen to short tech talks presented by your fellow members (or give a presentation yourself!) while enjoying some beer/drinks/food. No sales pitches. The idea is to provide you actionable knowledge for you to take back to your $dayjob while building a top tier InfoSec community in the Des Moines area. If you have the desire to learn about real world InfoSec scenarios - get out of your comfort zone - and join us in a relaxed vendor neutral environment. No registration is required.

Schedule

We meet monthly, on the 3rd Thursday starting at 6pm at The Forge By Pillar Technology in Downtown Des Moines.

Brandon Murphy and anyone else who wants to participate - Tool Talk A Discussion - Phishing Investigation Maturity Model6:30pm

During internal discussions of threat intelligence service offerings we found that many existing maturity models for information security practices indicate that threat intelligence is a service "enhancer" used to increase the maturity of other services, vulnerability management is a good example. However, there wasn't much information regarding a maturity model of the threat intelligence services that enhance those other services.
This open discussion will center around describing the qualities of phishing investigations at different levels of maturity based on the 4 tier model from the NIST Cyber Security Framework.

Andy Robbins and Rohan Vazarkar BloodHound: He Attac, but he also Protec7:00pm

Andy Robbins and Rohan Vazarkar work together at SpecterOps on the Adversary Resilience team, and both also continue to execute red team engagements and network penetration tests.

Benjamin Holland Recent Trends in Program Analysis for Bug Hunting and Exploitation6:30pm

Software is pervasive, and for better or worse, it now controls most of daily lives. Developing and maintaining secure software is of the upmost importance, but it seems that despite our best efforts we just haven’t gotten it right yet. More importantly we should ask ourselves why haven’t we solved this problem yet? This talk summarizes classical program and recent program analysis techniques without all the fancy jargon. As case studies, we examine a few of DARPA’s high-profile software security programs and read between the lines to see where the field is going. Is your job in computer security going to be replaced by machines armed with theorem provers or will humans always have a role to play? Come join in the discussion.
