Making the Malware:
A Choose-Your-Own Adventure Exercise

Break out your hacker hoodie and prepare to get shady! In this interactive session, we’re planning a big cyberattack and we need your help to make it happen.


As an attendee, you’ll dictate our actions—whether we build our own tool or buy it from the dark web, what features and functionality are most important, and more. Join us for a fun hands-on look at hacker tradecraft, C2 frameworks, post-exploitation tools and the activity taking place in today’s cybercrime markets.

Tales From The Trenches:
Hacker Horror Stories

If we’ve learned anything from our time in cybersecurity, it’s that you can’t understate the value of community-building and knowledge-sharing. From ex-intelligence operations to managing enterprise networks, to day-to-day operations in a small mom-and-pop shop—we all have our sea stories to share.


In this session, we’ll bring together members of the IT and small business communities to shine the spotlight on real events they have worked through, and to share important insights and wisdom gained along the way.

Slipping Past Prevention:
An Intro to Antivirus Evasion

Ready to put your AV to the test? It’s time to get our hands on the keyboard and start hacking.


In this session we’ll develop a payload for command and control—and put it to the test against a series of modern antivirus (AV) programs. We’ll pull back the curtain on signature vs. heuristic-based detection, how smart hackers can trick AV, and more. Jam-packed with live demonstrations, this offense-focused session will take you under the hood and show how the bad guys are breaking in.

Cooking up Cybercrime:
You Choose the Recipe for Ransomware

You are the head chef and malware is on the menu! In an interactive session where the audience chooses what ingredients go in our inject, you will learn all about the puzzle pieces and components that pull off a big hack. Should we purchase an off-the-shelf toolkit from the darkweb? Or build our own? You decide. As we bake in bypasses and season the supply chain, we will walk through different tradecraft, adversary tactics, techniques and procedures -- and you get to choose the dish we serve.
