BSides Canberra 2018 Panel
Saturday 2.30pm - 4.00pm

The past year has been busy for cyber security. But it's been a busy every year for at least the past 15!

Their passwords are probably already in a database dump while they think they are watching youtube and reading secure email because no-one knows the name of their dog Benji and no-one will certainly be able to gain access via that secret security question.
The BSides Panel will look at the big topics. Well, at least we think they are big. Isn't exploit mitigation a big topic? Or mandatory data breach notification. Please god, can we go one year without discussing the shadowbrokers or Russia? Unfortunately, that year isn't this year.
