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 Thursday starting at 6pm at Speed Lyceum Center at Grandview University in Des Moines.

Andy Neller Digital Hapkido: Redirecting the Attacker's Energy.6:30 PM

Attendees will see a proven defense-in-depth control structure that deals well with complex adversaries and ransomware/malware. The talk will be structured in a plug-and-play way so that the attendee can take different aspects of the security controls back to protect their organizations. During the presentation I will also talk through some alternative options to some of the covered controls to help increase the success of the attendee raising their security posture in their own environment. Attendees will see practical adversary obstruction and how to leverage the home-field advantage to flip the script on hackers giving their organization the upper hand. Mr. Neller is also co-founder of Digital Revelation, a security research and award winning competitive hacking team.
