An annual east coast hacker convention, ShmooCon creates a rather interesting atmosphere for demonstrating technology exploitation, inventive software and hardware solutions, and open discussions on critical infosec issues. We look forward to exchanging brilliant, brain-melting ideas with other security professionals and adding to Shmoo Group’s razor-sharp sense of sarcasm, cybersecurity, and threat hunting.
At this year’s ShmooCon there may be less moose than ever, but there is definitely MORE Novetta!
Hear from our experts in our two speaking sessions, swing by our booth to see a Novetta Cyber Analytics demo, play CTF, and check out open positions because we are always on the hunt for great talent.
Ad-Laundering: Bribes & Backdoors by John Amirrezvani
John Amirrezvani, a security researcher with Novetta, uncovers how he stumbled across a technique for dealing with ad-laundering, identified various similar campaigns, and analyzed their approach for enabling access to target accounts. Ad-laundering is a new tactic for exploiting social media platforms to spread fake news and fraud via legitimate users. While the overall strategy of targeted manipulation via ads is well known, ad-laundering is creating new headaches for social media platforms looking to balance income and integrity.
Firetalk #1: Shut up and Listen by Kirsten Renner
Kirsten Renner, Novetta’s Director of Recruiting, leads a discussion about closing the gap between finding the right job in infosec and resolving the perceived shortage in available talent. She covers the challenges for employers and candidates, explores points and truths that are constant, and identify tactics for success. Attendees will share and collaborate in the true spirit of ShmooCon openness and awesomeness.
