TALKS:

  • OWASP Suffolk Introduction, Welcome and News - WTC
Welcome and an update on OWASP Projects & Events from the OWASP Suffolk Chapter Leader.
  • Your only as strong as your weakest link – Edward Ogden
Servers are the root of all web apps and sites, it’s the central point that your clients/customers will connect to and where you put your code.
Many small and under resource companies that do there own hosting don’t normally put the time and investment in there hosting technology and this is where it starts to go wrong.
This talk will discuss what some of the dangers are and what could happen if an attacker gets into your infrastructure, we will also talk about how some simple changes to the infrastructure can reduce the risk of being attacked.
  • Discussion about future of OWASP Suffolk
We will have open discussion about what we are doing, and what YOU expecting us to do.

Tuesday, 21 May 2019 (Ipswich)

Location:   University of Suffolk, Waterfront Building, 19 Neptune Quay, Ipswich IP4 1QJ

TALKS:

  • OWASP Suffolk Introduction, Welcome and News - WTC
Welcome and an update on OWASP Projects & Events from the OWASP Suffolk Chapter Leader.
  • Windows Active Directory Security Lowlights - Barry Myles
Once an attacker is inside your organisation they very often will misuse Windows Active Directory for almost total compromise of every aspect of an organisation's computing infrastructure and the data it holds. This talk will describe how an attacker might do this, when they have done so in the past, the kinds of tools they would use, what common mistakes enable this, and how organisations could go about defending themselves both through changes in behaviour and changes to their setup.

Speakers

  • Barry Myles leads an internal penetration testing team at BT, although tries to stay away from very traditional views of pen testing as much as possible. After becoming somewhat bored and jaded with project management work in 2006 he decided the life on an attacker was a very much more fun, but perhaps less constructive way of life. He enjoys large scale scanning, reverse engineering, cryptography, hardware hacking and network protocols a bit too much.

  • Understanding how to prevent Sensitive Data Exposure - Simon Greatrix [ PDF ] [ Video ]
Sensitive data is often the target of any attack, and its exposure has the greatest risk of long-term damage. OWASP and the PCI DSS provide many recommendations. The internet provides even more. These can be hard to understand, hard to implement, and contradictory. I will be sharing my understanding of how the cryptographic algorithms work and how they should best be used.

Speakers

  • Dr Simon Greatrix has been writing software since the late 70s and has worked as a security expert for e-commerce for nearly 20 years. He is currently working on SETL’s block chain product. Java has been his preferred programming language since 1996.
