My DEFCON social engineering talk and DerbyCon
September, 2012, Noah Beddome, Associate Assessor, Coalfire Labs
This year has been a year of firsts for me and for Coalfire. I was recently hired to my first Information security job as a penetration tester for Coalfire Labs, the forensic and app/network testing side of Coalfire. Many of the Coalfire Labs team attended DEFCON in Las Vegas in early August.. Not only was it my first visit to DEFCON as an attendee but this was my first time speaking at a conference. Because it seems to be a year of firsts, we at Coalfire Labs thought it would be a good idea to share a first time speaker’s experience and an attendee’s views on this year’s DEFCON.
