This episode is dedicated to my experience attending the infamous hacker conference known as DEFCON in Las Vegas. DEFCON 24 flew by way too fast, but I managed to interview several attendees.
Jake Kouns CISO of Risk Based Security speaks about attribution.
Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai of Motherboard talked about the DNC hack.
MGT CTO Eijah talks about Demon Saw and working with John McAfee.
John McAfee (recently named CEO of MGT) discusses his new cyber security firm.
Rachel Tobac takes 2nd place in Social Engineering Capture the Flag competition.
DEFCON luminary Ryan “1o57” Clarke (pronounced “Lost”) spoke with me about the badge challenge which he helms each year. In the video above 1o57 shows off one of the custom made “Uber Badges” awarded to winners of several contests at DEFCON 24.
My DEFCON 24 badge, which I was convinced was emitting a RF signal. Possibly communicating with our benevolent robot overlords? Alas, no RF detected.
