InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
BSides Luxembourg is a conference that is 100% dedicated to defense, inspiring discussions and knowledge exchange among the participants, whether they are from red or blue team side.
Only defense topics please!
Some example topics of interest are (but not limited to):
– Security Monitoring
– Secure Coding
– Innovative Defense Strategies/Tactics
– Prevention/Detection/Response to a specific attack type
– Vulnerability/Patch Management
– Incident Response
– Digital Forensics
– Malware Analysis
– Threat Intelligence
– Security Management
Discussion talks are divided into two parts. The first part is a 25-minute presentation on a given topic, while the second part is dedicated to discussions and it is 15 minutes.
The presentation does not have to be about groundbreaking defense techniques or the latest and greatest innovative research. They are meant to be about problems and solutions that would improve our daily life, tips, and tricks which work in your environment that you are ready to share. Or, if you tried a solution which failed, that can also help others avoid the same pitfall.
Once the 25-minute presentation is delivered, participants will have 15 minutes to go deeper on the topic and engage in a Q&A discussion and give their input. The role of the presenter here is to moderate the discussion and make sure that it stays live and on topic.
The idea is to have a very interactive workshop-style session, where the participants are encouraged to be actively involved and bring their own data/samples/tools/techniques they use to tackle a problem.
For example, in case of a malware analysis workshop (careful with those!), participants are requested to bring interesting samples and show it to others, discuss how to analyze such sample, what are the possible pitfalls and how to avoid them.
The role of the presenter here is to show examples and techniques, but also allow participants to show their examples or ideas. This requires a bit of moderation as well to make sure that the workshop stays on topic.
Workshops are 90-minutes long.
