|Go Hack Yourself: Offensive Security Tools for Enterprise Defenders
Offensive security tools aren’t just for penetration testers. Enterprise defenders can take advantage of the same tools and techniques to identify weaknesses in their networks and the humans contained within. Need to find your exposed vulnerabilities and get them fixed before the bad guys exploit them? Want to clean up the low-hanging fruit before a pen test so you can focus on more realistic, targeted threat scenarios? This class is a hands-on immersion in offensive security tools including tools like nmap, Metasploit, Arachni, recon-ng, and Phishing Frenzy. Participants will be provided a virtual machine pre-loaded with tools to use throughout the class. The focus will be on imparting practical skills that students will be able to apply immediately upon returning to work.

|Integrating Risk and Security Into Your Organization’s DNA
Risk management practices and security controls are often perceived of as burdens or roadblocks by end users and executives. The goal of this workshop is to help you change those attitudes so that individuals don’t just comply with risk and security practices, but instinctively integrate them into everyday business activities. Adapting an organization’s DNA to effectively integrate risk and security requires a fundamental shift from authoritative and consequence-oriented approaches to consultative and benefit-oriented ones. Instead of focusing on protecting the organization and its constituents from themselves, risk and security professionals will learn to empower individuals with information and insights to make business-appropriate decisions. This will ultimately make risk and security a business enabler instead of a roadblock to success. Topics will include information risk profiles, threat and vulnerability analysis, approaches to culture change, and risk and security considerations for the information supply chain. Interactive discussions, examples, and cross-industry case studies will be presented throughout the workshop.
