I had a great time attending the BSides Vancouver Cyber Security Conference last week. If you’re not familiar with BSides, it is a community driven security conference born in 2009 from a collection of speakers who could not be fit into the Black Hat conference due to time constraints.
TriNimbus was one of the elite sponsors of this great security event. We were also able to contribute to the Cloud Security track with Goran Kimovski (our CTO) being a panelist at the Cloud Security Panel session and I was able to present a session titled Are You Sure Your AWS Cloud Is Secure? to discuss some gotchas with migrating to the Cloud. As I’ve had quite a few requests for my slide deck, it can be found here: Are You Sure Your AWS Cloud Is Secure presentation.
From the Hacking the Clouds session, lockpick village, and Hacker Jeopardy at the After Party – it was a great time. If you’re in Vancouver, interested in security, and have never attended this conference, I recommend you check it out.
