    Realistic Threats 

    Nation states aren’t after you







    What are credible threats?

    Malicious insiders - 

    Non-malicious insiders - https://www.scmagazine.com/home/security-news/not-every-insider-threat-is-malicious-but-all-are-dangerous/

        Education issue?

        Is there such a thing as ‘non-malicious’ or is this just bunk?


    Real threats


    CIO magazine threats -- buzzword threats (we should totally containerize all the things)

    Vulns that have names (blue team is stuck dealing with ‘theoretical’ issues e.g. SPECTRE/MELTDOWN)

    Lack of well-priced training?

        Dev Training?

        Security Training?


    Better management communication will reduce threats

        Building trust so they don’t freak when ‘$insert_named_vuln’ shows up

        Gotta frame it to business needs

        “Everyone is vulnerable” - keep FUD to a minimum, don’t exaggerate.

        Know your industry’s threats (phishing, money transfer fraud, malware

    Layer8conf - https://www.workshopcon.com/events



    Regarding diversity scholarships, it's being worked on and the number of available spots will highly depend on the number of Sponsorships the conference secures.

    As a side note WorkshopCon will sponsor a number of Layer8 conference tickets if people follow @WorkshopCon on Twitter and tweet to us why they are interested in Social Engineering and OSINT topics with hashtag #sendMeToLayer8. We will select folks from those tweets with the emphasis being on folks coming from underrepresented or minority groups.

    In terms of sponsorship information for Layer8, Patrick wants people to send an email to sponsors@layer8conference.com

    Please let us know if you have any other questions, and thank you so much for giving us a hand spreading the word!!!
