Hackers, Hooligans, Heists, and History
This presentation is based on 20+ years in cybersecurity working across 50+ countries. It will explore the real-life history and use cases of hackers, hooligans, and heists. From mechanical computers to the Internet, acts of sabotage, fraud, theft, and other nefarious undertakings have been conducted with low risk, minimal hurdles, and high reward. In some cases, attackers even receive safe harbor from prosecution. Bad actors ranging from insiders and hacktivists to cybercriminals and nation-states are motivated by money, politics, revenge, and ideology.

Anatomy of a Megabreach: Analyzing the Equifax Report
In December 2018 a House Committee released a report on the Equifax breach. After a 14 month investigation, it presents detailed information about the who, what, where, why, and how. Utilizing a blue team perspective, I provide a comprehensive overview of the report, and some takeaways that security professionals and advocates can use when discussing security programs for their own organizations or others. Come prepared to guffaw, sigh, facepalm, and maybe shed a few tears.

How Cyber Security competitions got me my Job
So COLLEGIATE CYBER DEFENSE COMPETITION or CCDC is competition held nation wide for the top schools in the nation. Last year 2018 was the first year I competed and when I started on the team I was a Janitor for Vivint Smart home. While competing and learning I was able to take some of the tech skills and troubleshooting lessons I learned in the Cyber Security Club and moved up to being a Tier 4 Troubleshooting tech within 8 months of working Vivint. When we went to regional I was picked as team captain where I learned to manage a team while also fixing windows systems and giving professional reports. After the season was over I tried getting on the IT team for Vivint but because I had no job experience or certs I was passed over for the job. I kept looking and eventually I found a job working for VASA Fitness as an IT team member. I've been here for six months and I am now IT Team lead of 4 people because I learned how to manage people and how manage projects form the club. Still no certs but I am working on those and still only a student in school. I feel like most people put accomplishments like this on their Resume but not everyone knows or even heard off CCDC and don't know what that means and I want to explain what this has done for me and my fellow club members and how we are prepared for real world task and jobs better than most students because we practice for The worst scenarios and build great solutions.
