Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All!

It's been a very busy year overall and unfortunately I haven't been able to post as often as I would have liked to.

I recently had the great pleasure of speaking at the TASK Oct 2013 event (Toronto Area Security Klatch).
The presentation was very well received and there was plenty of quality discussion. I had a great time, made some new friends and got some excellent feedback. It was very special to speak at an event at home-base.

TASK is a very interesting group that holds monthly events with various speakers from the security community. These talks are free and also qualify for CISSP credits. The organizers of this event are also responsible for bringing the well known Sector Security conference to Toronto each year. More information on TASK and upcoming TASK events can be found at  http://www.task.to/

Interesting course from SANS:

SANS has a new course offering by Benjamin Wright called LEG523: Law of Data Security and Investigations, if you are an investigator, law enforcement, deal with legal counsel or are called as an expert witness this is definetly soemthing to think about.

Ben has some very interesting insights from a legal point of view; I am a big fan of his ideas on using a screencast or video capture to complement or  replace an investigator or incident handler's notes:

I have added a number of new sites to the OSINT engine. If you use this Google Custom Search, it is worth checking out.
