Our Annual workshop was held last week at UNAM University in Mexico City, which is an inspiring venue.
The workshop enables chapters from all over the globe to meet, discuss ideas, share experiences and develop our toolsets for data collection and data analysis. It is an extremely valuable and unique event, where chapters from around 20 countries find the time to attend the 4 day workshop. The type of collaboration that is fostered during these workshops just cannot occur to the same extent online, so the workshop is the highlight of the year for us.
The Australian Chapter contributed to the workshop by presenting on our work over the last year in the following areas:
- VOIP honeypots, and how they react to VOIP scanning/cracking tools
- Sandbox tools
- Defacement monitoring
This year, we were also lucky to get advice on blogging from renowned security journalist Brian Krebs and also learnt some presentation tips from our own Lance Spitzner.
A big "Muchos Gracias" goes to our hosts from the UNAM Chapter. They really went our of their way to make sure we were all looked after, and this made the whole experience so much more valuable and enjoyable.
