I am currently at Troopers, a well-known German hacking conference in Heidelberg. I had heard many positive reports on about this conference, especially their awesome hardware badge, and am glad I finally got to speak there. My talk was on hacking a smart toothbrush, and why it's important to secure any connected device, even those - like toothbrushes - that seem harmless. If you missed my talk, my slides will soon be online:, check the Fortiguard Research Centre. Now, let's focus on some of today's talks.
Black Alps 2017 was an inaugural Cyber Security Conference held last November 13 at Y-Parc, Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. With support from previous cyber security events, such as CyberSec Conference and Application Security Forum - Western Switzerland, there is no doubt that Black Alps 2017 is headed for success. The conference lasted for two days, and aimed to discuss the latest threats, mitigations, and advances in cyber security.
