44CONnect June Week – What to expect

We have a fantastic week planned from June 4th – 7th with training, a 44CONnect evening and of course hanging out with our friends at BSides London. If you want to join in there’s still time, just book a seat on the Exploiting Insecurity course, or contact us from your early bird ticket e-mail address.

Wednesday 5th June – BSides London

Everyone’s favourite free summer London event kicks off with registration around 08:30. We’ll have a table with stickers, a full list of September training courses, speakers, talks and workshops. Tickets will also be available from the table. Come say hello!

Thursday 6th June – Training

Training opens at the Novotel London West for registration at 08:15 BST with a 09:00 Start. Coffee and breakfast snacks will be available from 08:30. There are opportunities to break throughout the day and of course lunch is provided.

Sales for Paul Schwarzenberger’s course are now closed, but the Exploiting Insecurity course still has some places left. Book your seat now to avoid disappointment.

Thursday 6th June (evening) – 44CONnect

If you have an invite to 44CONnect, you’ll get an email telling you where it is. Invites are available to anyone on a course this year, and all of our early bird ticket holders. Just email us from the account you used to register and we’ll add you to the list.

Those on 44CON training courses this week have dinner included.

Doors open from 18:30 with food upstairs at 19:00.

At 20:00, Matt Lorentzen will be talking about Sheepl, his framework for actor automation. While it’s great for building out red-team rigs, there’s also a lot of scope for using it in blue and purple teams.

From 21:00, Mike Gianarakis and Shubham Shah will be doing an updated short talk on ephemeral bugs. They’ve come all the way from Australia just for us*, and they’ll be really disappointed if you don’t come to watch the talk.

As with last time, we’ll have a small drinks tab open from 19:00. There’s a full day of training ahead the next day, and it starts from 08:15!

Friday 7th June – Training

Once again, doors open at 08:15 BST. We’ll have breakfast snacks and coffee to keep you going, and lunch is provided in the restaurant.

If you don’t qualify for an invite to 44CONnect and would like one, drop @stevelord a DM on twitter around 16:00 on Thursday and he’ll let you know where to go.

*Just kidding, but they did agree to come over and talk, which meant at least we didn’t need to use force for a change.
