Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
Infiltrate Con, a boutique cybersecurity conference focused entirely on offensive security and unethical hacking, is pleased to announce its selection of two former senior National Security Agency officials - Richard “Dickie” George, former technical director of the NSA’s Information Assurance Directorate, and Bill Arbaugh, former senior technical advisor for the NSA - as keynote speakers at this year’s event.
At a time when the NSA’s SIGINT operations face intense scrutiny by the public and media, these two Infiltrate talks will provide an insider’s view of the agency’s “spy versus spy” tactics and methodologies over the years and key lessons on offensive operations learned from the field which can benefit today’s practitioners.
“We’re pleased that both Dickie and Bill will be able to speak at this year’s conference and expect both talks to provide extremely interesting content for the offensive security crowd,” said Dave Aitel, CEO of Immunity Inc. and founder of Infiltrate Con. “Love them or hate them, the NSA runs the best SIGINT operations in the world, and these talks will not only prove instructive from a strategic and practical sense, but they will also provide a greater understanding of the changes coming down the line from both an attacker’s and defender’s standpoint.”
Here is a brief overview of the two keynote talks:
Now in its fourth year, Infiltrate Con is a single-track, two-day conference in Miami Beach, running from May 15-16, 2014 at the Fontainebleau Hotel. In addition to the briefings, Immunity Inc. offers a variety of training classes (including Web Hacking, Unethical Hacking and Master Class) before and after the conference.
About Infiltrate Con:
Infiltrate (http://www.infiltratecon.com) is a deep technical conference that focuses entirely on offensive security issues. Groundbreaking researchers focused on the latest technical issues will demonstrate techniques that you cannot find elsewhere. Infiltrate is the single most important event for those who are focused on the technical aspects of offensive security issues - for example, computer and network exploitation, vulnerability discovery, and rootkit and trojan covert protocols. Infiltrate eschews policy and high-level presentations in favor of hardcore thought-provoking technical meat.
Founded in 2011, Infiltrate Con is organized by Dave Aitel and Immunity Inc. Past speakers include Stephen Watt, a.k.a. “The UNIX Terrorist,” Charlie Miller, Chris Eagle, Brad “Renderman” Haines and more.
