Keynote Presentation:

Paul Asadoorian

Come along on a fantastic voyage and learn Hip Hip and how it relates to information security! When I was growing up there were two things that intrigued me, computers and rap music. Using examples from my favorite genre or music, we’ll explore some interesting facets of rap music, and discuss the lessons and parallels to security today. There will be no half steppin’. It will be dope as it allows us to dig into topics such as:

  • Is security a fad? How do we differentiate a fad from something here to stay?
  • Encouraging youth to become security engineers, a call-to-action for the community
  • Deviating from established norms and setting trends, few truly change the industry, and who will change the security industry in the near future?
  • Remembering those who have passed on and learning from their work
  • How true experts practice their craft (and how to best utilize their skills and share the knowledge)
  • Few things are truly original (and it’s okay, in most cases)
  • Not all legends reach the same pinnacle of success. What separates the best from the rest?
  • How experts make career pivots, and actually pull it off
  • New isn’t always better
  • We all have beefs (and better ways to resolve them. And no, we’re not going to dig into social media beefs)

Paul Asadoorian is the founder and CEO of Security Weekly, a security podcast network providing free security information to the community and security market validation to a wide array of security companies. Paul is the primary host to several shows, including Paul’s Security Weekly, Enterprise Security Weekly, providing the security community with valuable knowledge. Paul is also a founding member of Active Countermeasures, a startup dedicated to providing reliable sources of actionable intelligence.

Keynote Presentation:

Turbocharging Windows Administration with PowerShell

PowerShell has become the backbone of Windows Administration and expanded to include Linux and all popular cloud platforms. This presentation will explain and demonstrate the most critical features of PowerShell and the most useful commands for systems administration. We'll walk through examples while getting familiar with the PowerShell Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Demonstrations include querying and modifying resources on multiple machines simultaneously (PowerShell Remoting), using built-in job execution and scheduling, and how to navigate resources like the Windows registry as if it were a file system. If you are involved in systems administration, you absolutely need to know PowerShell and here’s your chance!
