SecuraNibble EP03 – Security Hour on IMP

A SecuraNibble is an out-of-band episode.  This one in particular happened on The International Mac Podcast during their 12 Cubed event held on December 12, 2009.  The conversation was a general security round table held between our own Anthony Gartner, and a panel of 3 other security podcasters.  The panel of podcasters included Bart Busschots of the International Mac Podcast, George Starcher of Typical Mac User Podcast, and Paul Asadoorian of

This SecuraNibble is not an extremely in depth and geeky conversation but one that covers a lot of general information and it applies to all operating systems not just the mac.

SANS CDI 2009 – Reverse Engineering Malware

So this coming Friday, December 11 – 14, I will have the privilege of attending  SANS CDI 2009.  It’s the largest SANS event that takes place every year in the heart of our nation’s capital.  Besides the horrendous traffic and the bitter cold I’m eager to learn from one of the best in our field, Lenny Zeltser.  Lenny’s been teaching the SANS 610 course for a few years now and has built up a reputation as being a true expert at reversing malware.  I currently hold the GCIA, GCIH, and the GSEC certifications from GIAC and the GREM will be a true test of skills as it’s said to be one of the most difficult to obtain.  I’ll post my experience with the course next week as I’m sure it won’t be a disappointing one.  In the meantime if you’d like more information regarding the SANS 610 course be sure to check it out here.

Be sure to check out the trailer below:

SecuraBit is looking for writers!

We are looking for one or two energetic, articulate individuals to post entries to our blog on a daily or semi-weekly basis.  Those interested should have an interest in Information Security (and well, IT in general) and be able to come up with good content.  We aren’t asking for a 5 page article each time, it can be short and precise, and deliver information that our listeners will appreciate.

Please send an email to feedback -at- securabit dot com or use our contact form!

We can’t promise much in the way of payment, but we can eventually get you a T-Shirt and stickers, and work towards more!

SecuraBit EP46 live with Billy Hoffman tonight!

SecuraBit will be at it again tonight broadcasting live with special guest Billy Hoffman who’s began his own venture after his tenure with the HP WebSec team.  We look forward to having him on once again and hope that you all can join us live at 8pm.  If not, be sure to download EP46 later in the week!
