HITB and more...
Telspace Systems had a successful visit to Hack in the Box 2010 (HITB) Dubai, despite the ash cloud putting a bit of damper on the number of attendees :) . The HITB guys didn’t let it get in the way of presentations, though, as they set it up so that the speakers’ could do talks remotely(and completely legally in terms of UAE specs). Very clever I must say!
Andries was great in his contribution to the Wireless and Bluetooth Hacking 101 training session and we received great feedback from our attendees about the course. In terms of the other talks at the actual conference, they were definitely of international standard and a great refresher at many of the critical issues which still seem to be very prominent in our industry.
Andries and I both agreed that Mr Shah’s talk on Web Application Hacking was the most interesting, as it is a space which we are very active in. Mauriano’s SAP vulnerabilities talk and his discussion around SAP’s testing framework (bizsploit) was also very informative. In terms of our talk, it was extremely well received by the audience and we have had very positive feedback. You can download our slides from here or from the hitb website directly.
We met up with a lot of old friends and the networking opportunities were great(watch this space in the future) – we look forward to seeing many of our peers at HITB Amsterdam(Hopefully) later this year.
Back on home-ground, last week (28th April 2010) we presented at the Information Security Group of Africa (ISGA) HITB feedback session. It was great to share some of our Dubai experiences with the local guys. You can download our feedback presentation at http://www.telspace.co.za/isgfeedback.pdf .
Coming up, we have the Security Summit to look forward to next week. Telspace Systems has a corporate sponsorship at the event, and we’ll be there to chat, mingle and network. Mr Shah will be there too, so you must all go and check his talk out. What he says is very relevant locally and internationally.
Have a great week everyone. Keep checking out our blog, more exciting news coming soon....
