ISSA members and visitors, The next Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) event is Wednesday – November 13th at the Bozeman Library in the large conference room. This is a new day of the week based on your requests.
Please come and support your local ISSA chapter so we can continue to bring in the talent for you! Without your support and attendance, our speakers will be less likely to return. Bring a friend too! Remember – ISSA is open to the public and this another a great example of where you should invite/encourage some of your colleagues or business relationships to come join us. No need to RSVP, just show up. I hope to see you there!
Gallatin Valley Information Systems Security Association (GVISSA)
When: Wednesday, 13th November 2013, 3pm-5pm MDT
Where: Bozeman Library Large conference room Bozeman, MT
Topic 1: USB tools to help you recover, analyze, …
Topic 2: Linux Hardening – Step 1, The Build
Our Double Feature this month is hands on so you can walk away with something useful you can start using immediately! So, bring a notebook and a UBS drive to work with, however some hardware will be available and USB flash drives will be provided for the first 10 attendees. Yes! Prizes again!
In our USB section we will be looking at a way to make super easy bootable USB drives with some cool tools and a super easy way to rebuild operating systems. There’s a lot of ways out there to do this, but we’ll examine one that appears to be the most flexible and easiest. If you have a favorite or two, please bring them for our open discussion time. In our Linux Hardening track, we’re going to break this up in to a couple sessions since we know there are some newbie Linux attendees and we want to help them get started with Linux. We’ll start our Linux discussion by identifying some great resources and the things you need to consider when building a hardened Linux system. We’ll then use our USB tricks from above, or VirtualBox to walk through a basic install following some of the guidelines. You’ll need a laptop you’re willing to wipe or VirtualBox installed with about 2GB of free space and 512KB ram for the VM. You could argue that both of these will lead down more of a general IT track instead of security, but we’ll certainly talk about the security benefits. However, it does mean, you should consider bringing your non-security friends and teams for the free knowledge discussion.
