10 Security Concepts You Must Know (in 5 minutes with GoT)

Here is a lightning talk I have recorded recently. I did it internally at Alfresco for an Engineering meeting but I think is good idea to share it and take advantage of the coming new season of Game of Thrones ;)

You have links and resources also available below the video.

If you want to use the ppt for your own use you can download it from here in my GitHub:

Automate or Die! My next talk at RootedCON 2017 in Madrid

UPDATED!  My talk will be on March, Friday the 3rd at 11AM (Sala 25)
Regardless I’ve given many talks in Spain during the last 18 years, It has been a while since I don’t do a talk in a security congress. I think last time was NcN when I presented phpRADmin in 2006.
I have to confess that I was mad to talk at RootedCON. Living abroad for more than four years now, the RootedCON has been a reference event for Spanish speakers and I always have been following it very closely, I think it is one of the most popular security conferences in Spain.
Last year I tried to attend with a “Docker Security” paper but it wasn’t good enough, and honestly I didn’t work much on the paper itself. This time I worked on a more decent paper (and better tittle as well) and voila! My talk was approved.
And what I’m gonna talk about? Security in IaaS, attacks, hardening, incident response, forensics and all about its automation. Despite I will talk about general concept related to AWS, Azure and GCP, I will show specific demos and threats in AWS and I will go in detail with some caveats and hazards in AWS. My talk is called “Automate or die! How to survive to an attack in the Cloud” and you have more details here.
If you are in Spain or around the place, don’t miss the opportunity to learn from people like Mikko Hypponen, Paul Vixie, Hugo Teso, Juan Garrido or Chema Alonso. As you may see in the full list, there are 3 days plenty of good material to improve your skills from very good professionals, they also offer a training day. And compared to the price of security cons in other countries, this one is not expensive at all.
My talk will be on March, Friday the 3rd at 11AM (Sala 25). Looking forward to see you there!
