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 2nd Wednesday starting at 6pm at The Basement Bar at the Des Moines Social Club in Downtown Des Moines.

James Beal - SecDSM News 6:05 PM

Quick Review of the Month's InfoSec news.

Brandon Murphy - Tool Talk Using Network Artifacts to Cluster Malware Samples6:30 PM

Having access to millions of malware samples presents a problem. I don't want to look at all of them as many will be varients of the same malware. This talk will show a quick prototype and demonstrate two clustering methods based on the newtork artifacts created when running samples in a sandbox.

Jim Hebler IOT, Device Saturation - Zero-Trust @CyberSecurity's Mid-Life Crisis6:45 PM

Leveraging daily headlines, a unique career arc from journalism to CISSP-trained CyberCowboy - this talk quantifies mobility challenges, device-application saturation, how much is at stake in alignment to Zero-Trust, SDP and Secure-Access-IAM alignment throughout the entire network. The presentation is fun, interactive - and geared toward the audience - not selling specific solutions - customer-centric, vendor-agnostic.


Pulse Secure's Director of Americas' CyberSecurity Solutions brings considerable security, technology, business and brand experience to the organization. Jim Hebler has driven security solutions, business value and development within most every industry vertical for large global enterprise security firms and entrepreneurial niche providers alike.
