Intern PoV: The Hollywood Fallacy
by: Raquel Milligan from Secure State

How many have seen TV shows such as CSI Cyber or Scorpion? Well, being a newbie to computers, I fell for Hollywood’s false painting of what a career in ‘cyber security’ looked like. Through my current schooling, internship and from attending various networking events and competing in Capture-The-Flag events, I have come to realize my initial idea of what a career in cyber security looked like was false. Anyone interested in hearing a students point of view on the computer security field would benefit from our talk. Especially those looking to hire students for internships or full-time positions.

  • Raquel Milligan is a Senior at Baldwin Wallace University majoring in Computer Networking and Security. Prior to attending Baldwin Wallace, she served in the United States Coast Guard for a total of 5 years. She now has a strong passion in all aspects of computer/information security.
  • Jonathan Cartwright (co-speaker) is a recent graduate of Baldwin Wallace University who majored in Computer Networking and Security and Business Management. Jon also graduated from Cuyahoga Community College with an Associates degree in Electrical Engineering/Networking Hardware.

The Case of the Crappy Crypter
by Tyler Hudack

Attackers utilize anything they can to make their malware FUD (Fully UnDetectable), including using new packers and crypters. But just like on the defensive side, there are snake oil salesman who try to peddle their ineffective wares to the bad guys. This talk is about one of those “products”, and will discuss the techniques used to examine this crappy crypter and how they can be applied when analyzed real threats.

Tyler’s BIO:
