Security BSides Delaware 2012: The Recap


For a 3rd year by popular demand and by all accounts Security BSides Delaware 2012 was a great success.  The event occurred on Friday Nov 9th and Saturday Nov 10th at Wilmington University’s New Castle Campus.

The list of impressive speakers at the event included Jim Gilsinn (@jimgilsinn) with his talk about “Cyber Security for the Industrial Environment: An Intro to ISA/IEC 62443”,  “Hacking the Male and Female OS (Men are from Windows, Women are from Linux)” by Valerie Thomas (@hacktress09) and “PHP Website Security, Attack Analysis, & Mitigations” by @grecs.

In addition to talks, Security BSides Delaware also had some interesting workshops such as “Armitage and Cobalt Strike Penetration Testing Lab” by Raphael Mudge, “Social Engineering Basics and Beyond” by Valerie Thomas (@hacktress09) and a very popular “Metasploit Class” by Chris Godoy of @Rapid7

The staff of BSides Delaware was well prepared, professional and helpful and if you’d like to stay updated with them, you can do so at @BSidesDE on Twitter.

And thanks to the Security BSides Delaware Sponsors, such as @securicon, @Rapid7, @TenableSecurity and @DigitalTrustLLC to name a few.  As stated by a BSides Staffer… “Without them, this would not be possible.”

Embarrassing to say, this was my first BSides, even though I heard a lot about them over the years.  I enjoyed the venue and would definitely return to Security BSides Delaware next year.
