Hacker Summer Camp, as it is colloquially known, is three security conferences that are all next week in Las Vegas. The three conferences that makeup Security Summer Camp are:
While preparing for these conferences, I dug through their schedules and picked out the talks I was most interested in catching.
BSides Las Vegas
BSides Las Vegas is back with a fantastic schedule and is always one of the best community events of the year. I am giving a talk on Wednesday at BSides titled Vulnerability Intelligence for All: Say Goodbye to Data Gatekeeping, which I am super excited about.
Here are a few other fantastic talks I will try to catch:
- Cyber risk: How does cyber events become so costly?
- Enemy at the Gate, and Beyond: Detecting and Stopping Account Takeover
- For Intel and Profit: Exploring the Russian Hacktivist Community
- Honey, is that you? Building test-driven, identity-centric honeypots together.
- Machine Learning for Insider Threats: At the Intersection of Security and Privacy
- Security Data Science Teams: A Guide to Prestige Classes
- The Dark Playground of CI/CD: Attack Delivery by GitHub Actions
- Towards Effective & Scalable Vulnerability Management
- What Does an LLM-Powered Threat Intelligence Program Look Like?
- Compromising LLMs: The Advent of AI Malware
- Entrepreneur Journeys: What it Takes to Start a Startup
DEF CON is probably the world’s most well-known hacker conference, and this year’s schedule looks impressive. Here is what I am going to attempt to see this year:
Growing the Community of AI Hackers with the Generative Red Team
Badge of Shame: Breaking into Secure Facilities with OSDP
ndays are also 0days: Can hackers launch 0day RCE attack on popular software only with chromium ndays?
Vacuum robot security and privacy – prevent your robot from sucking your data
Along with these talks, they have these interest-specific villages where I will spend a lot of time. Here are the villages where I know I will be spending time.
While the talks above are the ones that I am looking forward to, my friends have built HackerTracker, which has a complete list of all the talks for the weekend and is worth checking out.
I am also really hoping someone hacks the new Sphere next week.
