SnoopCon 2015

It was a great honour to be invited by the Cyber Security Testing and Validation Team at British Telecoms (BT) to attend their annual internal conference, as a guest speaker. The conference is known as SnoopCon and it is BT’s Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking annual meet-up event which lasts five days. 

The event is held behind closed doors, however it is customary that on the third day they invite people from the industry, recognising that their work would be an invaluable input if presented at their internal conference.

I had fantastic day at BT and the quality of the guest talks was over the roof. From Cyber Wargaming to the dark corners of the Dark Net, hacking the Internet of Things, a different approach when it comes to hacking cars, OS exploitation and of course, Threat Intelligence in depth.

The amazing news came a couple of days later, when I was informed that I was awarded the "Best External Speaker" award for my talk. 

The award is called the “my little Pwnie Award” based on the word "pwn", which is hacker slang meaning "to compromise" or to "control", hense the eccentric type of the award.

Thank you for inviting me to the conference and a special thank you for the award. I am looking forward to the next conference already!
